Subject: auto-delete after playback?
Date: Tue, 29 Jun 2010 18:29:33 -0400

I've been using the
rockbox firmware on a Sansa Clip v1 for the last 5months or so and love
it. I've been staying current with daily builds, currently on
I'm using the clip
as a podcast player for lengthy commutes, downloading fresh NPR feeds directly
to the Clip with Juice every couple of days. I'd never need to listen more
than once to any given download, so I'm wondering if there is a way to
auto-delete a file after a completed playback? I didn't see anything
about this in the manual nor perusing the menus.
I'm aware of how to
delete a file within rockbox, but I'd rather not have to deal with mashing
buttons while on the highway. I could also auto-purge older material
with Juice after a certain period of time passes, but it would be a lot more
elegant of a solution to simply have the material disappear after
Is this
possible? If not, is this the right forum to make a feature
thank you for the
space, and thank you even more for the rockbox firmware!


I was wondering about something similar, except I was thinking of doing this from the computer and not from the mp3 player. I was thinking of a special program to handle transferring music from the computer to the mp3 player similar to the way that iTunes does it, except in the Rockbox way. We've modified the mp3, why not the software to handle the music transfer? (and when I say "we", I meant everybody except me because I couldn't hack my way out of a wet paper bag). Maybe a simple music handler with an added folder that handles podcasts with the option to append the new and delete the old. Perhaps a plug in for Amarok or some other open source program.
