Track Playing History details

Where are the details stored within the database (MySQL) for track 'Playing History'?

I can locate 'Last Played' but not 'Playing History'



They are stored in tblHistory

... jeez I got a fright at the speed of reply :)

Thanks Mikael.


You are welcome Alan :)

Hi Mikael,

I may need a wee bit more info, here's what I'm trying to do.

So I have two files, same title, one an mp3 & one a Flac.

The mp3 file has been played many many times and the Flac just a couple of times.

I'd like to incorporate the 'Playing History' from mp3 to the Flac file whilst retaining its 'Playing History'.

I know I can manipulte the db outwith Helium but I'm unsure of possible pitfalls, any pointers would be great :)

Many Thanks,


I have no best practices here, my recommendation is that you take a backup of it and just start to elaborate.

This field is not reflected in tags, excepted for ID3v2, so you might get data out of sync if you only change the database, but since you are modifying FLAC files it could work.

Thanks, Mikael I'll give it a go :)
