Leave gpodder open and have new podcasts downloaded and ready when I leave the
Need to manually check for new episodes and download them.
If you have access to a Nokia S60 phone and use the podcasts app there, you can
see how they implemented that. You need to select your default connection and
the check interval.
Related info for implementation (just a personal note):
A related and maybe more general option could be to have gPodder automatically
download new podcasts only when connected to a WLAN. Maybe also at specific
times of the day. Outcome: Fresh podcasts every morning, but not if your WLAN
failed the the phone switched to 3G.
Here is a quick attempt at trying to solve this problem (as gpodder used half
my monthly bandwidth on the 1st of april) . It prevents a refresh of the
podcast list while on a gsm network, thus preventing it from downloading while
on the GSM network.
I have tested it for 1 day now and it seems to work.
It will require more work to get this into a full solution, but at the moment i
have no time, and its somewhat above my python skills.
Copy check_wlan.py to your /usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/
patch the gui.py file with the attached diff.
