Hi there, I'm a long time user of MusicMatch and have compiled/rated/sorted a large library using MusicMatch tagging.
Well, it has come time for me to move on to greener pastures, I've done my due diligence with all the big music players and found MM to be *way* more flexible than the rest. So here I am all ready to get set up. I've downloaded all kinds of scripts, but I first want to get my ratings moved over from MusicMatch to MM.
When I run this MusicMatch script on a few of my MP3's that were all tagged in MusicMatch everything works perfectly, the star ratings appear in MM. What I don't understand is where this new rating is being saved. If I pull up the mp3 in mp3Tag, I don't see these ratings getting saved. Are they being saved externally in a central file instead?
If I remove the mp3s from MM and re-add them the ratings are gone... (The Quality value is still there so I can rerun the script, but I would like to permanently save the rating to a tag such as in the POPM tag. What am I not understanding?
Looking through the script and trying to understand, at the end it runs the Update DB command and the HTML Help says the UpdateDB command:
"Writes changes that were made to track's properties back to the Library."
Does that mean within the mp3 file or elsewhere?
lol Ok I've figured it out, I've added the following line under the itm.UpdateDB:
I'm going to assume that its ok to run both those commands, not sure where in the heck the UpdateDB is saving...
As my final note for the evening, the scripting capabilities in MM are awesome! I'm hoping that saving these POPM values in MM's star numerologically (made up word) settings will not affect my ability to sync my brand new 8G Ipod Nano and use ratings! Or am I in for the battle of evermore (ie only change these ratings from MM and deal with the inaccuracies)? I'll keep searching these boards as this post is turning into a blog.
