Hi. Is there any way to control how long a song must be played for it to be entered into the history list? This appears to happen only when the file has played all the way, and is not a setting I can find anywhere. I'm hoping maybe there's a way I could set the threshold for entry at say 30 seconds. Maybe an add on? Thank you!

There is no user-adjustable setting for this.  However this plugin will keep a text file title/artist listing of songs played for any length of time (from files or radio streams):

Wouldn't this be the playcount setting: Edit Preferences - Now Playing - playcount +1
(where you set the percentage or time played to trigger the playcount increase).

Yes, exactly.

A song played from a radio stream only appears in the History window if it has been active for 30 seconds.  Granted, "playcounts" for files is a different animal, and I missed that one.

Thank you all. Just what I was looking for. Sitting out in plain sight.  :D
