How to run a shell command for each downloaded episode of specific podcast

Shell commands are used to perform actions on files, such as copying a file into another directory. Ziepod allows you to set a shell command for specific podcast so that you can do whatever you want to do with downloaded episodes of that speicific podcast.

  • Open context menu of that podcast
  • Switch to 'Download' tab inside popped up setting window
  • Make sure that check box entitled 'When download finishes, apply following shell command on downloaded file' is checked
  • Inside enabled edit field under that check box, enter the shell command. Make use of following placeholders:
    • %f : for full path of downloaded episode
    • %n : file name of that downloaded episode (including file extension, such as mp3)
  • Click on 'Apply' button to apply this change

As you set this command, when an episode is downloaded, Ziepod makes all necessary subscriptions for placeholders %f and %n and run that shell command.
