Sound skips when rating song

Post by Deezerd » Sat Jun 06, 2020 2:31 am

Hi all,

Got a new small issue to try and fix...

When i have a song playing and i apply a star rating for the song the sound skips slighlty when i select the star rating. Any suggestions on what might be causing this ?

Thanks in advance

You can try a different Output Plugin (Tools > Options > Output Plug-ins).

This has always happened to me. I've assumed that it was because the track is having a tag added (thus the actual file is re-save) and that caused a brief blip. Doesn't bother me any.

Thanks Lowlander will give it a try. Been running MM for years and not seen this one before. @sallenmd87 - shouldn't be skipping, never done it b4. Maybe u should try Lowlanders suggestions see if it improves for you also.

Cheers

Still having this issue ? I've tried changing the output to others but no change.

BTW it only jumps when you rate the song that is playing, if you rate a diff song than the one that is playing there is no jumping / skipping.

Hi,
It is normal if Temp file needs to be used as whole file needs to be retagged. To avoid that disable immediately tagging from tools -> options -> library -> tags and playlists.

Do bear in mind that making this change means that the rating you add will not be stored as tags unless you manually synchronize tags later.

Hmmmm, sorry to be stupid what is the implication of that ? do you mean if you were to move db and reload the track it wouldn't keep the rating ? also, do you have a system / method for manual update of tags ? Thank you

It means that any tag changes aren't saved to the files. Thus anytime you move the files or loose the MediaMonkey database you would loose those tag changes.

Music > Files to Edit > Unsynchronized Tags node in the Media Tree shows all these files and Tools > Advanced Tag Management > Synchronize Tags from the Main Menu would save the database values to selected files tags.
