Thread: Set a single feed to only download over wifi

    Set a single feed to only download over wifi

    I want all feeds to download whether on wifi or mobile, except for one.

    Currently my settings are to download all whether on wifi or mobile.

    Is there a simple way to do that?

    Thank you.

    There are no feed-specific settings for WiFi vs Cellular downloads.

    However, there are a couple of ways you could potentially do something close to what you want:
    1. Add all of the feeds except the one you don't want to download if not on WiFi to a Category, and only schedule automatic updates for that category (rather than for All Feeds); update the other feed manually only when you're on WiFi.
    2. For the non-WiFi feed open up the Episode Downloads section in the feed, and change it to Manually Download Episodes; update the feed manually.

    In both cases, I think that "update the feed manually" could be replaced by "Use Tasker (or similar) to update the feed automatically when I connect to any / a specific WiFi network" - using mobi.beyondpod.command.UPDATE_CATEGORY. See Can I control BeyondPod from external applications? for more details.

    Thank you Julie, I've gone for option 2, maybe I'll experiment with Tasker later.
