Organizing podcasts in folders

Post by Sol » Sun Nov 10, 2013 7:09 am

Guys and girls hi.

I listen to quite a few podcast and my wish is to organize podcast subscriptions in separate folders. After some fiddling with options i havent find out how to do that.
So my questions are: Is there a option to organize Podcast subscriptions or downloaded podcasts in folders automatically, example: for this and this individual podcast subscription, after it has been downloaded , move it to example: folder called Science and Technology.

Thank you for this wonderful program and sorry for my lack of knowledge but i am totally new to mediamonkey.

Cheers!

You use a variable. So, for example,

C:\Users\Sol\Podcasts\<Podcast>\<Date> - <Title>

Will save each different podcast to it's own folder, where the filename is: "Date - Title.extension" in those folders for each episode.

I would like to organize each podcast I subscribe to into a separate folder
I read thread below but still do not understand how using a variable allows me to accomplish this
Can someone please provide a step by step description?

The \<Podcast>\ variable does this. It takes the Podcast name to create the folder.

Where do I change this?
I only see 'default download location' as a global setting

Tools > Options > Downloads/Podcasts and change Download podcasts to setting.

That's a global setting that lumps all podcasts into a single folder
I want to organize each podcast into its own folder

Which is why you use \<Podcast>\ so each Podcast Subscription is in it's own folder. There is no setting of Path per Subscription.
