it depends how you want to export the history data... as http://nunzioweb.com/daz/mlexporter.html or the built-in library itunes xml exporter will be able to do it, it just depends on what format you're wanting it to be in.

based on pipecreek's prior posts, just backing up the library which the backup tool would do doesn't look like it'd be appropriate, hence not mentioning it

thank you for the quick answer. the ml exporter is exactly what i searched for. you can even export to a excel format (*.csv) but... how can i export the history by playcount? its sorted by default to filepath. any ideas?

currently the plug-in just outputs things in the order it is provided from the database files. the simplest way is to export it in csv and then re-sort / re-organise the output from there as i'm not too keen on adding in additional processing to sort by a specific option (which also cannot be be guaranteed to be there).

though maybe when i finish off the specific smart-view dumps then you can use a smartview to filter by playcount which i think will do it by most to least but i'm not 100% sure.
