Does streaming/dowloading via AP generate count on original platform


Technical question: if I listen an episode from AP or download it, does this make the counter progress on the original site?

I’m quite interested, since I host a podcast on Spreaker :wink:
I already tried something and it seems that it works when streaming, but not when downloading.

Thank you!

AntennaPod streams and downloads directly from the original server. Even the feeds are fetched directly from the original server. AntennaPod does not have a central server that aggregates things and knows about all subscriptions of all users. The servers of individual podcasts can count downloads.


Great! I checked an old episode after half an hour from download and the count went on :ok_hand:

AntennaPod is the best.

It is the best. It’s just so simple (as far as I can tell) from the users point of view.

It does what I need it to do, and doesn’t blind me with bells and whistles that I don’t need.

Now if only I could find a way to lessen my queue faster than listening to the episodes. :joy:

Thank you to all who are working on it! Or have in thw past.
