For example, users can choose to listen to their most played or least played songs in the Smart Playlist settings and i Tunes will create a shuffle playlist according to that criteria.
I had switched to wireless syncing within the last couple months, so I wondered if that might be the cause.
Though I had upgraded to i Tunes 11 within the last couple months as well (and I'm not sure exactly how long this has been going on).
In many cases, when I sync the i Pod, i Tunes automatically updates to reflect my activity on the i Pod.
For example, the playcount will increase and the rating will be whatever I chose while listening to the i Pod.
Author: redwing Music Bee defaults to save play count of each track to MB database file only. Import all presets and find "TOY: 'Copy tag' command" preset. Select all tracks in the main panel and make it to copy "Play Count" to "P_count" field using drop-down menu.
But you can save play count to your music files as well and keep them auto-updated. Click on "Preview" and then "Apply" if everything looks OK. Tick the box in front of the preset name to make the preset auto-applied to all tracks in your library.You first need install Additional Tagging Tools plugin and enable it. Go to Edit custom tags Choose a custom tag, rename it "P_count" or something, and select a frame the new field will use with the drop-down menu (If you do not change the custom tag setting from "Save to Music Bee database only" to something else, there's no point of doing this). Now whenever a play count of a track changes, "P_count" tag value of the file will get auto-updated.You can also copy play count values saved in your music files to that field of MB database.Apple developed the play count feature of i Tunes to help with their "Smart Playlists" feature.Smart Playlists allows users to control the way the "Shuffle" feature in i Tunes chooses music.My problem is that this is not consistent, and I don't know why.
