Play count itunes not updating
While those who wish to keep tabs on their songs and library uses may find this a bit of an inconvenience, it is not one that will have any impact on folks who use i Tunes tonight for New Year's celebrations. You want to know what tracks you've listened to or to assemble smart playlists in i Tunes.I envy Mac owners as they have wonderful Applescript collections to manage i Tunes.
In the comments you’ll see it works with Windows 7, 8 and 10 with i Tunes 12 .
Problem: Using manual i Pod update, Playcount and My Rating (i.e.) will not be synchronized between i Pod and i Tunes.
So the script now asks you to input the new play count.
And yes, I checked the clock and date function to make sure it was set.
I think I have stumbled across the cause, and it appears this also affects 3G and 4G Ipods as well.
To fix this, you can synchronize a selection of playlists BUT...
Using synchronization (of a selection of playlists) will not allow you to create Smart Playlist for your i Pod music in particular.
3) Synchronize the "i Pod Music" playlist and all Smart Playlists based on i Pod music.
You are now be able to: - easily (manually) add/remove music from your i Pod, by adding/removing from the "i Pod Music" Playlist.
As a result, if you find that i Tunes is not updating play counts, then go to the program's preferences and in the Playback section uncheck the "Crossfade" feature (merely changing its value will not have an effect).
