So I've tried Syncthing- and I can get my ratings to update from my phone to my computer, checking the metadata shows the changes in ratings.. but for some reason MusicBee does not seem to care if the file has had rating changes (no changes are represented in the program). Even if I right click send to rescan.
Any tips for that?
(noting again windows OS can see the rating under properties, so I can confirm that at least the file is being updated)
I might have found out what is part of the problem but I need help to fix it lol.. Looks like all changes are getting sent to inbox as 'duplicates', there are no duplicates literally (if you go to the folder there is only one) but.. the rating changes appear to be sent there. How can I get them to pass through smoothly?
Tried to send to library to see what happened. Apparently it sent it to a folder in my library called music library, which was organized as it's own library.. @_@
Seems like I have some setting wrong and never noticed before because I normally drop stuff into the right folder rather than using send to. Do I need to make a new library or something?
I think using the relocation tool made some horrible mistakes in my library, probably at my accidental direction, that I never noticed due to the inbox system, and syncthing laid them very bare. If everything is smooth I will update again, I have a feeling syncthing will be one of the better options to update the library if the APP is having troubles. Will check if playcounts update, but I can say at least ratings do.
So after a lot of cleaning I believe my library has been un-fubar'd and the syncthing is working well. Probably drains a decent amount of battery, but the response time is really fast.. One caveat is to get the new ratings you have to have MusicBee rescan the file or close / open. Doesn't update playcount, could just be the GMMP doesn't write playcount tag though.
Anyway if you can't get the MusicBee app to work and want your ratings to sync, try syncthing, and if it all goes haywire it's probably because of some issues with how the library is setup.
Udpatex5: Still working so far. Definitely not getting playcount via syncthing but you can get it from last.fm / scrobbling apps if you really wanted. Used Anti-Twin to help clean up the library and then also the internal duplicate system after that.
