However, the way it works now, musicbee will GET ratings from tags regardless of the setting. This implies your tracks are getting rated automatically. Is that so?
I admit I'm really confused here. If you don't want the ratings saved, don't -rate- them.
If you -do- rate them, but don't want to see them, don't -display- them.
I really can't see Steven implementing something like this for a one use request.
In the more than ten years I've been on the forum, I've never seen a request to have a tag stored as part of the file -and- as part of the database.
No, I've never had my tracks get rated automatically. I rate them all myself. The issue is that tracks that already have ratings in the tags are also being shown as rated. I've said this several times, but I DO NOT store ratings in the files. I already mentioned that I have that option unchecked, which is why I expected musicbee to also not get the ratings from the tags.
The tag is ALREADY stored as part of the file AND the database. How else would my ratings be able to exist in tracks that don't have the Rating tag?
Thank you all for contributing, I appreciate the traction my thread has gotten. Seeing as this won't be implemented, I'll go ahead and rename the tags to something MusicBee won't recognize as being a rating so as to preserve them. This will sadly break compatibility, but it's better than outright deleting them.
Can someone please tell me which tags MusicBees takes into consideration so I can track down the tags in which to rename?
I have so far found the following:
