While surfing on the Internet, you may encounter audio or video files that you like to download and access them from your harddrive whenever you want. For that kind of task, you can use Ziepod. All you have to do is to drag-and-drop of those links onto Ziepod main window. This feature is especially easy to use when Ziepod is in deskbar visual mode, on top of all windows.
Ziepod in deskbar mode
Here is scenario for this tip:
1 ) When you see a link to an audio or a video file, drag and drop that link onto Ziepod window
2) Upon dropping, Ziepod will ask you what you want to do with that. You can either directly play that dropped media file via Ziepod or download it. In addition to these direct actions, you can also add to your playlist or download list, to be played or downloaded later.
3) If you choose to download or add to download list, then another dialog box pops up, asking where you like to save that file in your subscription tree hierarchy so that when you need it you can reach it from inside Ziepod. Choose a folder or subscription, or create a new folder on fly. Then hit OK.
Like bookmarking, if you like to keep links to the media files you encounter on the Internet, this is the feature you can use. Like managing your podcasts and their episodes, you can manage your archived links via Ziepod. You can download them, move them from one folder to another, or delete them. Unfortunately, you cannot rename them, which will be taking care of in the future release.
Drag-and-drop and managing external files are two interesting topics that we will be working on in the future. What do you think? Do you have any interesting suggestion related these topics? If you do have, then please share with us. Just use ALT+F keyboard shortcut to send your suggestions and questions quickly from inside Ziepod.
Hope you make use of this feature. Have a great week,
