1256 Bogus rating attribute in WMA [#5977]

Post by chrisjj »

If I set the rating of a WMA track in Now Playing, MM writes a "SBD/Rating" attribute - this fails to accord with the Help "table of all properties stored in the Library vs. which properties are stored in Tags."

Marked Fixed.

So, MediaMonkey uses the rating field as the WMA standard set it and now it's not good? Seems to me that that just the Help needs to be updated.

Uh?? There's no mention of this SBD/Rating attribute there.

'SDB/Rating' is necessary in order to store more precise rating that just full stars (i.e. half-stars). For compatibility reasons this can't be done in the WM/SharedUserRating attribute.

Thanks. If you have an accurate table of properties used by MM, it would useful if you would publish it for users.

Though marked fixed, and the Help now says:
WMA Rating
Yes [full stars] (SharedUserRating)
Non standard [Half-stars] (SDB/Rating)
the issue remains for the case of zero stars. For zero stars MM sets the standard property WM/SharedUserRating to one - the same at it sets for one star. This non-standard behaviour causes interoperability failure with other apps:

Also it sets the non-standard SDB/Rating, which it should not, since it is not a half-star value

Rating zero stars sets incorrectly adds a non-standard tag property http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=12161
