Do we know if that's a PlayerPro limitation? Or an Android limitation? Or a tag system limitation? Or just my limitation?
If it's the case that PlayerPro only writes ratings to mp3s, could your script use the SongBird export to grab ratings from the PlayerPro database rather than getting them from the tags?
Indeed PlayerPro doesn't seem to write tags to m4a files. There is no problem with flac or ogg though.
Please post the issue in the PlayerPro Forum
. As a workaround, if you have MM Gold, you could auto-convert your m4a to mp3 during Auto-Sync.
If PlayerPro can't fix this, maybe I'll introduce an option to read the ratings from XML alternatively as you suggest.
