Currently Being ModeratedOct 10, 2008 3:31 AM (in response to patricksgolden)Yes! I really need this too: having the next episode of a podcast play straight after an episode is finished is driving me crazy. I don't know if this is the right forum for the question though - it's really an iPhone problem.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 10, 2008 2:15 PM (in response to razzlex)It seems a lot of people are saying this is an iPhone 2.1 introduced 'feature'. For me, it is workign this way on an iPod Classic and, as others have noted, a big pain. For me, it seemed to have started with the release of iTunes 8.
IF I could load the iPod with podcasts in the reverse order, with older ones at the top of the list it wouldn't be so bad but when I have several older podcasts to listen to and work myself UP the list, only to have it jump DOWN the list, to a show that has already been played, when a podcast finishes, is WRONG.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 24, 2008 1:18 PM (in response to patricksgolden)HELP! This is what I want to do!
I want to be able to play one video podcast after another in iTunes 8. RIght now I have to play one, close it, and select the next to play it.
I want to play a whole bunch in a row in either iTunes (or FrontRow)

Currently Being ModeratedNov 14, 2008 4:57 PM (in response to patricksgolden)Agreed. Had I known there was no way to disable this I wouldn't have upgraded to v2.1 or iTunes 8 or whatever. Creates an administrative nightmare remarking podcasts as new when I sync up. Definately a step backwards when the people who wanted this feature could simply make a "smart playlist" (we would have to make a new playlist for ever podcast... really poor design by Apple here)Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.1)

If Shuffle is on, make sure your podcasts are not set to Skip When Shuffling.iBook G4, OS X 10.3.9, Mac OS X (10.3.x), iTunes 7.6, iPod Video (and an old iMac running OS 9)
