MM4 Incomplete Podcast Downloads Added to Library

Post by Zeus »

Problem: MediaMonkey 4.0.0.1459 treats interrupted podcast downloads as if they are complete.

If the connection fails during a download, MediaMonkey adds the incomplete file to the library with no way to later distinguish it from successfully downloaded episodes.

Solution: Have MM4 flag partial downloads. That way, you can spot partial downloads at a glance, and they won't show up in MediaMonkey's library.

For example, FreeDownloadManager has an option to add ".part" to the file extention, removing it only after the download is complete.

That solution is just a suggestion, but I hope it helps. :D

I also have this problem. Any word on if this is being treated as a bug to fix in future releases?

That's great! I actually had to resort to using the Mainstread MP3 Player That Shall Not Be Named, just to be sure I was downloading full podcasts.

Returning to MM4 will be like coming home after vacationing in a mall lobby. So bland, so uncomfortable. ;)
