#2837 closed Enhancement (invalid)

Change Recently Added Part File Extension (example) aaa.avi.part TO aaa.part.avi

Reported by: beasson Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: Transmission Version: 1.83
Severity: Normal Keywords: Partial Files



Since you have added this excellent capability we have lost the capability of Previewing (⌘Y) files that are partially downloaded, or dragging the partial file to another viewer app such as Quicktime or VLC. (since .part is not recognised as an extension these apps understand)

Hopefully, you will consider this request and restore some very useful functionality for Transmission users that has been recently lost.

Please don't set milestones for tickets unless you've coordinated with the development team first. Otherwise it has the effect of appearing that you're setting the development team's marching orders and deadlines. :)

Now as for the ticket itself... I'm not very fond of it. IMO it loses a lot of the advantages of the ".part" suffix, and I don't know of any other applications that behave in the way this ticket suggests. Probably Transmission should just have an option to disable the ".part" suffix for people who don't want it.
