    Re: Plugin / standalone .exe to Scan music database for track rating and store in id3

    The problem is that in the new version (Beta and SVN) we are having a newer version of taglib-sharp, which is used by the plugin.

    Can you compile the code on your own?
    If so, you could compile a version on your own. i might later post a version to be compatible with 1.2 Beta and SVN.

    However the attached version should be able to work with the current released version of MP, which is 1.1.3.

    Tnx for the quick reply :D

    I am familiar with Visual Basic code but not with this one. I'll try this one this weekend and let you know the result.

    Edit:
    It seems to work! I changed a couple of ratings in MP and when I checked the files were changed also. Many thanks.

    Re: Plugin / standalone .exe to Scan music database for track rating and store in id3

    Any update on whether this now works with v1.2beta?

    I am just getting around to rating my music, but don't want to have to do this more than once, with over 4000 songs. Thanks.

    Alternatively, is there any way to manually save the rating data, for a manual restore at a later date, if required?

    Sorry, was too busy in the last weeks.
    Here's a version, which is 1.2Beta compatible

    Just copy the dll into the Plugins\Process folder

    Thanks for this plugin.

    Request: can rating updates be added for FLAC files?

    To my knowledge there is no official Rating Tag for FLAC files.
    If someone writes ratings then they would be proprietary

    Do you have FLACs with ratings? if yes, which program wrote those ratings?

    Ah I see, I did not know FLAC's could not have ratings attached to them.

    That's a pity as I was hoping to start adding individual track ratings to my large music collection and I wanted to have a way of preserving that data outside of MP.

    I wonder if there is a way to allow for this: maybe add/append the rating to the comment field in a FLAC file, this would then need import support in MP to check FLAC's for extra rating info in that field... MP1.3????

    Re: Plugin / standalone .exe to Scan music database for track rating and store in id3

    FLAC uses the Vorbis Coment format for tagging. It doesn't have a Rating tag.
    However we could introduce one, so that e.g. we write RATING=5 and MP could read that.
    But this information would be only available within MediaPortal, as no other program would search for a RATING tag inside a FLAC
