Playback history export (feasibility?)

App version: 3.0.2 (F-Droid)

Feature you want:
I’d like to be able to export a recent portion (say, last week’s worth) of my playback history, e.g. in markdown. This is to make it easier to make notes in a separate system.
My initial idea was to use the synchronization feature. I’ve installed gPodderSync on my nextcloud but the list of podcasts with the ‘Play’ status doesn’t match with the playback history on AntennaPod. I tried to create an account on but they are currently under heavy load and got a error message.

My first question is: is it possible to export/build the playback history I see in AntennaPod (which is accurate) with the gPodder API? If that’s case, I’m happy to have a go at writing a dedicated service for this.
But I need to know whether it’s actually feasible or whether AntennaPod uses extra information for the playback history, that is not found in the API. If this is the case, then I’ll have to get it directly from AntennaPod, which is a different kettle of fish. (and I’m not sure this feature is of interest to many people.)

Suggested solution:
Happy to have a go if it’s at all possible from the sync feature.

If you export the AntennaPod database, you should be able to extract the history quite easily using SQL.

Thank you for the quick reply!
Exporting the DB seems difficult to automate though, unless I missed a trick.

Is that to say that the necessary data for building the playback history is not in the export provided by the sync feature?

Sync should have the necessary information (position and timestamp)

Great! I’ll try with that.
