Export list of unlistened episods?

I see that it is possible to export the list of subscriptions and the list of favorites, but is it possible to also export for each subscription the list of unlistened episods?

Hi @brab

Anything is possible :wink: But for someone to build it and for the main team to accept the code, it would be helpful to learn more about your use-case. Can you explain a bit about why you would like to have this; how you would use it?


Hi @keunes

Thank you for taking the time to answer. My Fairphone 2 is at the end of its life (at 5 years, I hope it makes it to 6), and I’m considering switching to a phone where AntennaPod is not available. I would thus like to have a way to set up another app. I know I can transfer subscriptions using OPML, but aside from manually writing down the episodes I have not listened to, I don’t know how to get that information.

Thanks a lot for AntennaPod, it’s been my podcasting app of choice for 5 years now.

Please don’t :wink:

And as a Fairphone 2 and 3 user I would like to say: please don’t write off Fairphone 3 based on the FP2 experience. It’s a world’s difference (both hard and software).

Right. While I think AntennaPod should support data-portability, I’m not sure this is the right way. Because an exported list probably won’t allow you to import it on another phone - it would probably only allow you to get an HTML list. I would rather see time & love being spent on direct app integration (early discussion initiated here).

It is possible to export your AntennaPod database and get the information from there. Now, that’s quite technical and I personally don’t have much (if any) experience with it. But I’d be happy to give it a shot if you’re not in a rush (I wouldn’t be able to do it soon – somewhere over the winter break).

If Antennapod was the only deciding factor, I would not switch.

I’ve been quite lucky (and happy) with my FP2, and I plan to keep it at least till next fall. But I’m thinking of what comes after.

I agree exporting the list would not allow me to import it easily, but it’s already half the job. (I actually had the same issue when I started using Antennapod 5 years ago: I had to write down all the episodes I had yet to listen from the old app, and mark them as unplayed in Antennapod.)

Ah, this is great to know. I do a weekly backup of the database (I was bitten by corruption a few years ago, but it never happened again), so I have the data. I’d love to have instructions on how to get the information out of it. And as I said, there is clearly no hurry.

Thanks again for taking the time to reply.
