Exporting Playcounts and ratings

Post by Benn » Sat Oct 16, 2010 11:37 am

Hey guys,

Been trying (and failing) to get MM working on linux (under Wine), so for the time being I'm going to use something else until a solution is available... Is there a way to export playcounts and ratings to a different program? Doesn't really matter which program I use, though.

Cheers,

Benn

Ratings are saved in music files, so you really don't need to export them. It will be imported by the other program from the track tags when you scan the files in. As far as playcounts, I think you're out of luck, I don't know any way to export those to another program.

Ratings are stored in the files themselves. (see: http://www.mediamonkey.com/sw/webhelp/f ... erties.htm)

Playcounts aren't, maybe this can help: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... tom+report . The problem might be how to get this data imported.

A tipical way to "Export" your ratings is to make a playlist for each rating. In MM case you hace to create 10 Playslit. "0 stars", "0.5 stars", "1 stars" , etc ... until "5 stars". Then export each playlist as m3u and then import in another sistem each playlist and re-rating again.

The problem with ratings is that they're not standar. Itunes, Wmplayer, MediaMonkey are not saving the rate using the same format.

Cheers.

That's not true, the ratings are 100% compatible between MM and WMP.
