Listening to Podcasts sequentially on the iPod

Listening to Podcasts sequentially on the iPod 1

Q: Before upgrading to iTunes 6, all of the Podcasts on my iPod would appear in one list, with all of the episodes together.  After the upgrade, when I select the Podcast source option from the iPod’s main menu, the iPod first shows the creator of each Podcast (such as iLounge Week in Review). After selecting one of these manually, I can only listen to the Podcast episodes from that one source, after which time the iPod stops and returns to the main menu. Is there anyway to collect all my Podcasts into one place so they can all play sequentially regardless of the creator?

A: Absolutely, and this simple solution is in fact what we’ve been doing for ourselves recently.

To create a playlist that will always (and automatically) contain all of your current Podcasts in a flat, one-level listing, create a new smart playlist entitled “Podcasts,” and assign it these basic settings:

From then on, this playlist will automatically contain all Podcast episodes found in your iTunes Library, and – like any normal playlist – will not attempt to sort them into multiple levels by their creator.

To access this capability on the iPod, simply navigate to “Music->Playlists->Podcasts” rather than using the main menu option “Music->Podcasts”.

  1. hey iLoungeeee, Do you know how to get the contact pictures to be displayed on the iPod G5’s? Coz all the info from the vcards are transferred but vcards dont save the pictures. And even iTunes synchronising doesn’t get the contact pictures to the video ipod.

  2. as of about a week ago, everytime i plug my 15gig ipod into my pc it causes it (my pc) to crash. when it reboots, i get a message saying that i have a driver error.

    it was working fine befor, and seems to work fine if i plug any other ipod in to it.

    any suggestions?

    how can i reload my ipod if it keeps crashing my pc?

  3. Q: How can I transfer music files from my new 5th Generation Ipod to someone elses playlist. I understand how to get music from their playlist, by putting the Ipod in Manual mode. Can anyone out there assist me?

  4. Ok I don’t know if my questions ever got answered but here they are again:

    1. I have a mini 1st gen, and would like to upgrade, but am having a time of it. (this was my 1st induction into the ipod fam). I like the spacing of the lrger ipods but not the bulkiness, what to do (HELP ME!!!!!)?

    2. Do you think that they are going to up the storage capacity for the nano?

    3. Smartlist issues I have been trying to create a smartlist by various ‘genre’ and then narrow them down by ‘ratings’, but it seems that everytime I try they seem to zero themselves out or it list all the music in each genre. Help how do I fix this problem?

  6. Hello. Does anyone know if Griffin Technology’s iFM radio tuner plans to make one for the video iPod? I’d called Griffin a few weeks ago and they didn’t know.

    Thank you!
