Icons for Different Content Types

- Audio Feeds ( )
Audio feeds, or namely podcasts, publish audio based content and each post published thru these audio feeds is associated with audio file. By default, Ziepod treats each subscribed feed as a podcast.
Video feeds, or namely vlogs, publish video based content. That is, each posted item is associated with video file. When you subscribe to video feeds, you can select ( ) icon to distinguish it from other subscribed feeds.

While podcast or any subscribed feed is being synchronized, its icon in the folder hierarhcy turns to red so that you can track which feeds are being synchronized at that moment.
- Updated Feed ( )
After synchronization, if Ziepod detects new posts for a feed, its icon turns into green. Till you check those new posts, its icon stays in green so that you can identify which feeds include new posts.
