Track showing played before completion

Post by bensynnock » Wed Feb 26, 2014 8:42 am

I'm sure mediamonkey only used to count a play once the track had finished playing, but now it's showing as played (and updating the playcount and last played data) while play is still continuing. Then, If it's showing as played and I pause the track and come back later and restart it will count it again. To make it worse it doesn't always do it, sometimes it counts the play at the end of the track. I'm finding this frustrating because I use playcount and lastplaydate data in my own application to analyse my listening and create playlists for syncing to the ipod. I had a look for an option to change when the track is counted as played, but couldn't see anything. Is it a bug?

edit: I just looked again to see exactly what was happening and it seems to sometimes be counting both in the middle of the track and at the end. I played a track that was 9.31 long, and it added 1 to the playcount with about 3.30 left to play, and then again at the end. Something isn't right here.

Using 4.1.0.1692 I have never seen that in music tracks (though it does update played# during videos).
I just played a 10 minute song and it did update LastPlayed about 6 minutes in. But Played# did not get set until the track was completed. I wonder what the differences are
