Add another vote for user configurable option to define what constitutes "played." A percentage slider or something similar makes sense to me.

50% OR 4:00 - i think this is best way for regular tracks, like in counter (audioscrobbler).

I'll also vote for user-controlled times to apply to tracks (no matter what they are - 50% or 100%). I'm another user who doesn't listen to the entire track every time - I definitely liked MM2 better for this.

I have to agree here. I'd like things to change a bit too. Ideally, an option would allow a user to determine whether a track must finish or not and what percentage qualifies as "played".

I would like the ability to consider a track 'played' once it has been synchronized.

Yeah, would be great if that could be changed. Also the solution of MM2 was better IMHO.

OK, we're at Beta 2. MM3 is working with NO real issues for me now...just a reminder about this feature. :wink:

play counter logic

This was changed so that it advances after track is fully played.

This may not be perfect for everyone, but we're really focusing on stabilization at this stage...

Re. podcasts, bookmarking is supported per podcast so you can see exactly where you are on any given podcast. But I agree with this idea--adding to the todo list (post 3.0).


I agree Totally, And I Don't

This Feature is needed desperatly, I concur re podcasts. Or let me just manually edit the played #.

Either way everyones Percentage, will be different. However i'd like to choose mine.

As i would be after say 40%. And others would like different figures. Though to have it at 100% and that is it won't work for everybody.

Pls Pls Developers. Or when the db is settled, we could write scripts.

Product still looking good. Cant wait for it all to be totally settled.

Did this ever get sorted out?

decimals is a really interesting idea and I didn't even think of it...

but then you have the problem of.. if users play a track halfway through twice... does that really count as 1?

not sure of the answer.. but interesting suggestion.

If you keep skipping a song right at the start.. it will keep registering a fraction and eventually get a playcount.. even though, technically, you've always skipped it.


by ninerays » Tue Feb 20, 2007 10:21 pm

Just a suggestion:-
How about having the played field have decimals? eg Played 8.4 times etc.
This would work well with podcasts where you could see how much of one you have actually listened to.
