Play count not updating itunes 11
Every version of i Tunes seems affected, although version 10.x seems worse than others.
It can happen on any model i Pod, although Nanos and Touches seem to be the most affected.
It seems as though either the new play count for a track doesn't get synced to the cloud or that the original value in the cloud has over-written the new plays value. Several scripts here (Multi-Item Edit, New Play Count, New Last Played Date, et al) that allow you to edit the play counts of your tracks are affected by this bug, which only occurs if you're also using i Cloud Music Library or i Tunes Match.
I am not sure if versions of i Tunes prior to 22.214.171.124 are affected or if, perhaps, the bug also occurs with a track's skipped count (I wouldn't be surprised).
This feature allows for a more seamless transition between songs during playback, which can be useful in some situations; however, it seems this avoids the end of the song and i Tunes does not recognize it as having been played.
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).
I filed a bug report with Apple and it turns out it's already an open issue, so Apple knows about it.
Well, Internet Tough Guy™, I can give you good reasons why people care about play counts. It’s a website that keeps track of which songs you play, and offers streaming radio stations based on that info. The whole thing stops working if play counts aren’t updated. i Tunes has a nifty feature where you can create a playlist consisting of (for instance) “every song I’ve added to my library in the past 60 days and played more than three times in the last 30 days”.Comparing the playcounts of the old and new library can( for example) be done in Excel.Simply select all the songs in Itunes (CTRL A, CTRL C) and paste them in Excel (CTRL V), don’t forget to sort by name first. Ciao, Raphie For Windows you can either use the scripts from Or I wrote an updated version with a dialogue box available at Chrome won't let you download the script as it is a zipped windows script file so use Firefox or something else to get it.--when the played count property of an i Tunes track is changed with Apple Script.If i Cloud Music Library or i Tunes Match is enabled, the value will revert to what it was before being changed by Apple Script.
Is there any trip to let the play count sync between devices?
