Better control the subscription feature:

1)Download only videos which have not yet been downloaded
2)Download only videos from a date later than xx.yy.zzzz
3)Create a list of downloadable files from a channel. Let me edit the list and download only chosen items

Just echoing support for an option to limit downloading videos based on a date range!

The subscription feature really needs (at least some of) these enhancements to be useful.

Many times, my subscriptions simply fail to download new files. And there is no way to audit what has been downloaded against what is available for download, or to simply have the subscription check again.

Yes, please improve the ability to take old subscriptions and merge them with new scans.

The process should allow for more user intervention and manual control if wanted.

Dividing the process into, "scanning for new content" & "comparing with existing content" should then allow for "allow user to compare and sort by columns" such as online date posted, resolution, subtitles, etc. vs. local file creation date, file saved date, resolutions, subtitles, etc.

And then the user should be able to easily select checkboxes of which videos to download, allowing shift-clicks to select large groups.

And updating only subtitles as external srt or embedded subtitles would also be a very nice add-on. Having to re-download hundreds of videos to add some subtitles is such a waste of time.

Would prefer to be able to filter by things like video length or title strings

After reinstall the system, all subscriptions lost, have to *re-configure* and *re-download* again to all videos!!!!

Also, sometimes the default video format is unavailable and the download fails. I would like the download to still happen with a different resolution that is available.

Yes make the subscriptions more user friendly. If I want to subscribe to a channel I want to be able to choose weather or not to download the whole vid list. some channels have 6000 videos. I don't want to have to download 6000 videos just to get new content.

I just want the feature to work.
