Is there a way for MB to save the play count to the id3 tag? I'd like to have the data saved directly to the file for easier syncing.

This function would be very useful for me, too. Is there any possibility or maybe workaround to do so?
Thanks in advance!

I wrote a short guide:

Hopefully, ASR could automate this process in the future.

Thanks to boroda74's quick update of the plugin, now play count can be auto-updated. Consult the edited guide for details.

Thank you for your quick answer, redwing!
I am busy these days but I will definitely try this out soon!

Works flawless  :)
Is there also a way to do it the other way round - write it back to the "Play count"-field?

My use case: I want to generate a backup of all the played music files - and add them to another Music Bee installation later on. Would be very nice to keep the play count here!

Currently "Play Count" is not supported as a writable field with the plugin.

@boroda74:

Can you support this?

Yes, its possible. Though I don't promise that I'll do this quickly.

Would be great if skip count too was writable. Take your time.

The request has been done for PlayCount, SkipCount and LastPlayed tags:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/4e1g5nc9jbqjqt1/mb_TagTools_2014-06-21-3.zip

I didn't test this version very carefully, plugin regular functionality may be affected, but from my quick tests all is OK.
