Although I've done a decent bit of scripting I'm probably not the best person to help with this feature, but if you tell me what to do I'll see if I can help. Otherwise I'd like to essentially beg you guys to continue working on this.
As a music lover/part time DJ I decided it would be a great idea to use iTunes to rate all my tracks, then I could use smart playlists to help me pull songs out of my collection for specific mixes (my collection is 250GB and growing, so this speeds things up A LOT). Unfortunately there's a perfect storm of things fighting me on this:
- iTunes lets me rate songs but doesn't have playlists that self-update after the collection has been updated
- When my main hard drive crashed I decided to try Media Monkey only to find out that iTunes doesn't store the ratings in the MP3 (it stores it in an XML file), so I had to go through and re-rate everything, lost 2-3 years of my work doing this.
- Turns out Media Monkey constantly corrupts the ratings information so I have to keep going back to re-rate songs over and over.
- I give WinAmp a shot and it looks like it'll do everything I want ... except it can't update ratings from my iTouch.
Synching from my iTouch is key for me because that's how I rate my tracks. I add songs to a playlist on the iTouch and as I'm working out, or driving to work, or doing chores, or at work I'll listen to music and rate it, then when I come home sync to update the ratings.
Anyway, if I can help let me know.
