Re: m4a ratings and atoms questions, possible problem?

What MediaMonkey does: http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.php/WebHelp:About_Track_Properties/4.0 Note that when needing to transfer Ratings between applications that can't read each others Ratings that you can create a Playlist per Rating and then import the Playlists and set the Ratings accordi...

m4a ratings and atoms questions, possible problem?

hi all, my understanding is that MM will write ratings to a %rate% atom using a 0-100 scale and that this is the atom mp3tag, winamp, and twonky use. is that correct so far? if it is there may be a fly in the ointment. apparently win7 windows explorer (and one presumes WMP / later vers as well) will...

Re: Mediamonkey alternative

u can discount the obvious and / or personal exp as "speculation," but I feel no need to prove it. its just patently obvious most iOS users do NOT dl a 3rd party music player, just as its obvious most iTunes users don't modify iTunes to play FLAC. you disagree, I get it. I don't really think there i...

Re: Mediamonkey alternative

But I could say the same about FLAC. You can make them work on Macs, iPods, iPhones, iTunes, etc. Sure it requires some "extra effort" have you ever tried? in my experience it is extremely difficult to impossible, esp in the case of itunes. but what I can do or can't do isn't the point. the point i...

Re: Mediamonkey alternative

again, you keep quoting total popularity as an argument. its not. universality is not defined as popularity. in your stats above, there is nowhere I can't easily get ALACs to work, no one who uses my ALACs has trouble employing them. meanwhile, your stats demonstrate that large percentages of people...

Re: Mediamonkey alternative

I'd say Apple and it's devices are very much on a decline from their former popularity in the early and mid 2000's. http://appleinsider.com/articles/14/01/14/blockbuster-iphone-5s-ipad-air-propelled-apple-to-80m-holiday-idevice-sales---report http://appleinsider.com/articles/14/01/09/apples-domesti...

Re: Mediamonkey alternative

people who use apple stuff typically don't DL 3rd party stuff to replace or add on to iTunes or their iapps, and forget about apple hardware natively supporting FLAC either. for a file to be universal, it needs to conform to environments, not require users to conform to it. last time i tried to make...

Re: Mediamonkey alternative

indeed it doesn't. not the point. the point, as is all too clear, is that someone, anyone, with ALACs will find its easier to get them to play in the overall marketplace than FLACs are. this b/c there is no easy way to get FLACs to work in the apple eco-system, while it is pretty easy to get ALACs t...

Re: Mediamonkey alternative

u can believe whatever u like, but I was speaking to my own files, and it is much easier for me to get them to work most anywhere IF they are ALAC. I used FLAC for years, and switched to ALAC only b/c that was the easiest, most "universal" way to get them into my friends eco-systems who were based o...

Re: Mediamonkey alternative

if the market were only android and ios, I might agree. but its not. iTunes, ihardware, macs, etc...

and any android can get a free download to do ALAC, whereas FLACs a much bigger PITA with istuff.

the fact is its a lot easier to get ALAC playing somewhere than FLAC in most cases.

Re: Mediamonkey alternative

until FLAC works with istuff, I don't think there is much debate, given istuffs marketshare. ALAC meanwhile works with everything I use, and I have yet to find someone who has trouble using my ALACs for themselves. nothing against FLAC, and I'm no apple fan, but FLAC isn't as universal by a longshot.

Re: Mediamonkey alternative

I had FLACs, but I converted them all to ALAC so they would be more universal.

Re: Mediamonkey alternative

I think windows 8 SUCKS.

MM otoh, is great. so is winamp and foobar. props to the people running MM to not just summarily delete a thread that attacks in a mostly unconstructive way.

Re: Value of ID3v2 POPM field and MM's Rating

i have another request for you, concerning ratings, will you consider: 1. exposing in the options (as winamp will) the ability for the user to delineate what email id string is written to POPM? (default: no@email ) 2. supplying a toggle to overwrite or respect existing id txt strings, (default: res...

Re: Value of ID3v2 POPM field and MM's Rating

i can very well live with that Jiri. :D thanks for actually listening to and considering my arguments. i also think what you have said is valid. i do think there is an inherent worth in all the major apps doing a R/W of full stars the same way, namely 1,64,128,196,255 ...however ill conceived that w...
