When Songs Count as Played

Post by DMLCo » Wed Jan 16, 2008 12:55 pm

This seems to have changed in MM3--a track used to be marked as "played" about 1/3 through, now it seems to have to play the whole thing. Is this an option that can be changed somehow?
This used to show my recently played tracks. Sad to see @lozzd's tool go dark.

Hello DMLCo, my understanding is that not only has it got to play at least a third, but also has to pass through the end of the track - so I move the seekbar along to the end and it counts Played # 8)

MediaMonkey 3 changed to counting plays only after fully playing the song.

It would be great if this were added to a feature wish list as a configurable option (consider song as played after x% slider or something like that).

I am actively using the "Play a Third + Drag to the end of the seekbar" method.
... and it is working for me :P

Question: Why can't I change the play count field value, what's the reason? I know there are scripts that allow me to do so, but since there are no complex or mass tagging operations required all the time, it would be just finde to be allowed to change this field as any other field.

How weird. Searched for a new issue, found a thread I had created years ago. Counting as Played must haunt me ... but the irony seemed too great not to bump.

The issue now is that, on a fresh installation of 4.1.0.1692, it looks like the play count increases as soon as a song starts ... or as soon as you pause and restart ... or something. But certainly *not* 1/3 of the way, plus the end, as it was.

Anyone know how to change this or if this is a bug or a feature?

It needs to be played through now and seems to work like that for me on 4.1.1.1703.
