Author Topic: What counts as a play, and what counts as a skip?  (Read 868 times)

I have several tracks that show fewer "Plays" than I thought they would after listening to them on a loop or clicking on them to listen, and I also have some tracks that I know I skipped halfway through or something, but they show no skips at all.

So I am wondering what actions musicbee counts as each of those? And is it dependent on when the action is done while the music plays?

Is there a way to customize this functionality at all? Cause ideally; I'd like it to count every play and only count skips from the first few seconds.

Please search the forum before posting.

A little searching would have brought you to Preferences > Now Playing > playback > skip count or play count.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.
