hide podcast files from other apps

I can't really stand having to see my podcasts in all my other apps such as Google music, gallery and my video player. It doesn't seem like it would be to hard to hide the podcasts from all of the other apps on the system but make them retrievable for doggcatcher. I tried to make the folder hidden myself and it did hide the files globally but it also hid them from doggcatcher. I think it would ve ideal to hide the files globally but show them in doggcatcher.

There's a bug in Android 4.0

There's a bug in Android 4.0 ICS that doesn't honor the .nomedia mechanism that earlier versions of Android use to hide media from the library. ( See http://www.doggcatcher.com/node/2379 )

Also check if Share media is disabled in DC's preferences (In the DC Menu,Preferences,Miscellaneous)

Recent update broke this

Greetings, until the most recent update my video podcasts were NOT showing in my gallery. Now each folder is showing. I've tried everythings, I unmounted the DS card, turned off and on the phone, mounted the card, ran the Doggcatcher updates and the videos are still showing as "shared media" at least they are in the gallery. I fixed this last time with the unmounting of the card and refreshing the podcasts but it won't work this time.

Help!!
