I'm not super literate when it comes to MTP devices, but I'm curious if there's a way to sum up what might need to be done/changed in order to make syncing play counts work.

Considering how lacking many music players are on handling play counts, or at least supporting syncing them, I'm almost at the point where I want to try and understand why, and maybe even look into developing a compatible "MusicBee Mobile" style app that supports the way MusicBee handles tagging and such, adding in stuff like support for Mood and Occasion as well.

I've been exploring how to keep the play count of songs played with both Musicbee and on my mobile device synced, and because most Android players don't support the tagging depth of Musicbee, I'm trying to use the "replace artist tag" option to make it so they'll scrobble the display artist consistently with how Musicbee does instead of only partially (which has been happening).

The problem is this is what happens:

1) I sync to add the song to my device.
2) I play the song and scrobble it to
3) updates its play count for that track.
4) I open Musicbee to let it update the play count from
5) The play count either doesn't update, or my entire play history for that track gets deleted in Musicbee.

I'm not sure if I really expect a response given all the woes I've seen brought up here, of which many lack solutions, or even a single response, but I thought it couldn't hurt to ask.

I located the LastFmPlayCountCache.dat file on my system and this is what it has for the recent track I've been testing this with:

Questions / Remove a mood from MusicBee's drop down list?
« on: June 09, 2017, 04:34:43 AM »
I have two junk moods that serve no purpose to me that show up in MusicBee's drop down list. Is there a way to remove them?

Forgive me if I've missed this anywhere, and this isn't a massive priority, but I could definitely see myself possibly using these tags for when I want to easily play music for a particular mood or occasion, but by default MusicBee only lets you pick one from each list.

I don't know if this is a tagging restriction, but I'd love a setup like genre where you can easily add multiple of each with a delimiter.

Apologies if this is an annoying question, but I did use the search function and didn't find anything.

With the new work and movement tags available in 3.1 is there a a way to get tracks to appear like how iTunes handles them i.e. having the the different movements listed in an indented list below that work? I can't figure out how to do it, if it is currently possible.

MusicBee Wishlist / Highlighting delimiter text
« on: April 20, 2017, 08:22:01 PM »
Apologies if this has come up before, and also because they say a picture is worth a thousand words:

I understand this may be too difficult or specific, but what are the chances of adding the ability to create delimiter text for non-title text for songs? So the main song title, artist name, etc, would be highlighted in a different font colour, and the delimiter text, like joining phrases ("&", ",", "feat.", etc) would have a different font colour that differentiates itself from the rest.

The "(Artist 3 remix)" part was more just an idea, as adding in detection for actual song names/artists may be weird or tricky to implement, though it could be handy to offer a quick link to that artist's other work in your music library.

The colour scheme could obviously be changed, and different depending on theme.

Any thoughts? I'm even just curious to see if this is something other people might want.

MusicBee Wishlist / Display Composer?
« on: April 10, 2017, 05:15:12 PM »
I'm a bit confused about how to manipulate the display composer "tag". I can edit the information in MusicBee through the normal dialogue window, but there's apparently no actual value present if I check the tags with either the programs' own Tag Inspector or externally via mp3tag. Is there any easy way to quickly manipulate these values, and possibly even batch edit them?

I can select every other option in this section, but for some reason "show album cover" cannot be selected at all. Is there a reason why?

I'm on a Windows 7 64-bit system running MusicBee 3.0.6276 using the Monaural skin, if that makes any difference.
