Updating podcasts in itunes
So pretty much whenever there is a blue dot or whatever indicating you have unwatched/unlistened podcasts, simply select "Mark as played" and hopefully it will keep updating the podcasts by itself.
Stack Exchange network consists of 175 Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers.To update an expired podcast, right-click on its name (not one episode but the group name) and choose "Update Podcast" and it will grab the latest one and reset the counter. The goal, I'm sure, is to protect the bandwidth of the various podcasters: if there are thousands (or more!) of people downloading them and never listening to them, the podcaster still has to pay for serving the files for no reason.Episodes now get their own landing page, too, which provides show notes and another opportunity to listen.The web interface still offers users the ability to move over to i Tunes, which they’ll want to do to read reviews or access trending charts, but generally, the update makes the rumors of Apple phasing out i Tunes seem likely.
