It would be nice if Audacious kept a track/history of all played tracks in the following format:

Date started playing (Unix TS):Date stopped playing (Unix TS):Track ID (tag):Track URL

Hi !

I did a small script to handle that, but it's a standalone script (in bash), you need to launch it along with audacious. It keeps and update in a text file the informations, and use a popup to notify when a new song plays (not when changing songs). Better than nothing.

Maybe someone could make it as plugin or make it better.

If interessed in, I can post it here.

I'm using this workaround until we have this feature implemented.

The escape() routine is badly written but it was a quick dirty hack anyways.

This script has to be saved somewhere and then you need to add it to the Song Change plugin.

Here's an updated script which I checked against

% & ' " ( ) + ;

+ various Unicode characters and everything works as expected.

  • Status changed from New to Rejected

No core developer has had time/interest to work on this in 4 years. Closing.

#5 Updated by Igor Kushnir 10 months ago

I have implemented a playback history plugin in

The implemented feature displays only album history, not individual song/track history as requested here. I would welcome a contribution of extending the plugin to optionally track and display individual song history.
