podcast and the order of episodes


Userlevel 1
Has anyone ever recommended a pod cast to you that’s been running for a few years?
So naturally you want to listen from the beginning right?
NOT with the way deezer currently orders the pod cast.
On a PC/laptop it seem to be that the latest eps are at the top and the oldest at the bottom.
So you scroll to the bottom, click on the oldest one and start catching up…but when that one finishes it takes you back to the top and starts to play the news one… spoiler!
So you scroll to the bottom and hit the next oldest one… listen, and repeat… please…! Why not either reverse the play order, or at least give the user an option to reverse the play order.

HI Dave, I agree, that this is not ideal. I'm just checking with the Podcast team and will let you know, as soon as I have an answer 🙂

Did anything ever come about from this? I just signed up for the trial and am looking at the podcasts and there does not appear to be a away to sort them from oldest to newest. Gonna be deal breaker for me if it's not possible.

Hi there, we were told that they are looking into changing it, but we didn't receive any news just yet. We'll let you know once we have an update.

Hi Moderators

just wondering if you've any news on this as I feel Deezer is missing a trick not being able to re-order podcasts/add them to a playlist (which you could then re-order and also then add to a Fitbit!)

Spotify are all over the news with the investment they're making into Podcasts this year.... I really hope your devs are working on this!?
Please add manual sorting in personal playlist whatever the content is.

How could you listen to a podcast in several issues, when the tracks are in the wrong order?

Worse, i cannot add each track in a private playlist, so I could sort them manually.

What the point of listening to a book, or show or audio documentary from the end to the start???

What am I supposed to do: stop my car to get to the track before, while driving on a highway??!?
EVERY 10 MINUTES???!!!
When listening to podcasts on the website, on Chrome (latest version), I keep having the same error after pausing.

What happens :
  • I listen to the podcast for a while with no issues
  • I pause the podcast
  • The tab stays open, but maybe I go on other tabs or other softwares.
  • Later I resume the podcast
  • It will play a few seconds then stop with the pop up "an Error has occured, please try again later"
The only way to fix this is to refresh the page and press play again (and pray it kept where I was on the podcast).

It is really annoying as podcasts are long and I often pause it because i'm interrupted, so I encounter the problem very often.

Hi @Karottin

I agree with above - hopefully the development team will actually try and listen to podcasts and understand how it should work! 🙂

Thank you for your input and honest feedback @Karottin. I'm happy to pass it on, you have a point 👍🏼
I don't think we want you to just 'pass it on'. We want feedback, and ideally a resolution. What are you doing about this problem that you said you would look at a whole year ago?

Hey @ntreid

Thank you for your honesty. We've got big plans for our podcast section.
This year we've been recognising our shortcomings and we know that our users have been reporting some issues for quite some time. We're now thriving on these, to make things better. Next month our community team will be discussing Podcasts with the product managers responsible for the feature. So I hope to have updates for the community soon after that 👍🏼

Hey @Lyfae

Sorry that's happened. Could you try clearing the browser's cache to see if there's an improvement? Does it happen to all podcasts you listen to?

The crucial part of the community has to be it’s saviour and relatively speaking on the topic, the podcast is not the saviour and the developers will run out of hedonist steam with this idea and maybe you should all worry less about Lady Gaga’s dancers, move to Spotify and like make a (*censored*) Brigade because y’all never worked in New Zealand for Ambrose’s little pinup white Hollyweird.

Hi @muditsingh34 

 

I know Deezer is working on updating the whole Podcast experience and I expect you’ll soon be able to re-order podcasts the way you want/should be able to  - hopefully in the next few months :)
