    "Hide Unsupported Media" Feature not working

    I have ticked this option, and ensured only audio types are listed as supported, however I still see apk, zip, pdf etc files in my virtual feed?? BeyondPod version 3.0.37

    Also, in the virtual feed, selecting "video only" correctly displays only video, but selecting "audio only" displays all files - apk, zip, pdf etc

    BeyondPod only checks the allowed media types on startup, or when the feed is explicitly refreshed. Are you still seeing the wrong file types after exiting and restarting BP?

    I don't think it will make a difference, but what device and OS are you using?

    Hi Juwlz - I have exited and restarted BP, as well as restarted the phone numerous times, no improvement.

    I am on a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with Samsung's version of Jelly Bean 4.1.1

    Hmm. Well, I've been playing with this on my SGSIII, and also with the internal build of the tablet version on my Nexus 7, and the outcome appears to be somewhat unpredictable.

    On the Galaxy S3, I started by listing all episodes, and a few .apks, etc. were listed. I then thought I'd get a bit organised and create a category for my virtual feeds to make trouble shooting easier, and having done that, BP started to honour my filetype settings. For me, in that state, the filters all work as expected, i.e. All Episodes includes jpg files (which are an allowable type), but audio and video filter as expected.

    On my Nexus 7, I haven't yet stumbled upon anything that makes BP hide the .apk files in my Download folder, so I'm really not sure what's going on. We'll have to investigate further.

    Thanks, but I suspect it'll be a case of close examination of the code. If there's anything you can do to help, we'll let you know though - even if it's just trying out a new beta.

    Well, we're not sure what the bug is, but we can at least understand what's happening (even if we don't yet know why) and offer a workaround now.

    It seems that Virtual Feeds currently only honour the Hide Unsupported Media setting if the box is already ticked when you add the feed. So the workaround is to delete and re-add the feed.
