Before I start, GREAT program!

I use BeyondPod to download and listen to podcasts on my smartphone. I generally save the podcasts locally and listen to them via the media player on my phone.

Here's my problem- my phone has no way of excluding folders, so when it searches for music it picks up podcasts and mixes them in with music. I would like to be able to exclude podcasts from playing when I just want to play through music and vice versa- only play podcasts and exclude music. I can select what type of music I want to play in my media player by selecting genre. However, not all podcasters set their tags. A great feature to have would be to be able to set a feeds genre, artist, etc.

I am able to do this with podcasts I download to my homeserver using CASTGET, a linux RSS downloader. It allows one to set ID tags like genre, artist, etc. A feature like this would be great.
