I accidentally deleted a couple of pod-casts I wanted to keep. I could delete the feed, add it again, and sort out from there which are which, but is there a way to check old casts without doing this (I still have a load I haven't played yet).I'm not sure what your goal is. "Pod-casts", "feed" and "casts" confusees me a bit. In gPodder terms, a "podcast" is a feed, an "episode" is a single episode in that feed, and a "file" is a downloaded episode (e.g. the .mp3 file). What did you delete, what do you have now and what do you want to achieve?
OK, it is a couple of episodes I'm wanting back. I am still subscribed to the feed, but while having a clear up I accidentally removed a couple of episodes I wanted to keep (I thought I had locked them, but obviously didn't).
Below are the answers for the two most common related problems related to deleted episodes that I'm aware of: If it's about "importing" existing downloaded files, you have to either edit the database file directly or upgrade to gPodder 3.x, which includes some basic "import" feature (given that the download filename of the episode can be easily deducted from the download URL). If you just deleted the episode in the GUI, you can use the "View" menu in the toolbar to set the display mode to "Show deleted" (which will also show episodes that you have deleted, provided they are still in the podcast feed). From there, you can download it. If the episode has disappeared from the feed (e.g. because the feed only shows the last 10 episodes), there is currently no easy way to add this episode (but then again, you could modify the sqlite3 database directly and add the episode).
I'm not at home at the moment (death in the family, so won't be back for a week or so), but will try this on my return.
I'm running gpodder on Ubuntu Natty if that is relevant.Which version of gPodder are you running? Are you using the version from the gPodder Ubuntu PPA, the version from the standard Ubuntu repositories or some other build?
As far as I know it's just the standard one from the default repository, but again can check until I get home again.
