Yup, I re-adjusted them - but even if I set them back to their default values I get this weirdness, where only 7 or so tracks in my library get rated above 0! (with the previous version it was several hundred)

Yes, that's exactly how I've been doing it. I just realized though that iTSfv seems to add "Unknown Album" to songs where the album tag is blank.... why is it doing this?! I thought if I don't use any of the "validate" functions I'd be safe?
Looks fine to me. Strange. The only thing that seems a little unusual is that after the rating process is complete (the program's title bar counts up to 100% twice) the display at the bottom of the window still seems stuck on "Adjusting My Rating" - I had previously assumed this is just cosmetic, however?Hope I'm making some sense here, thanks again!

itunes 7.4.1 is available. Will this make any advances in the "large library with ogg files" camp ?Thanks!
"XiphQT vs. iTunes"Track names (numbers, dates, ...) of .ogg files are missing, or displayed incorrectly, in iTunes - can you fix it?Having the ability to play Ogg Vorbis files in iTunes was one of the main driving forces behind the qtcomponents project and also behind XiphQT development. However, iTunes is a proprietary software which does not provide a way to expand directly it's audio formats handling functionality by third-party developers. Given the iTunes support for QuickTime formats and architecture, writing a QuickTime extension (a component) has an effect of indirectly extending iTunes functionality. Unfortunately, iTunes support for QuickTime formats and extension mechanisms seems to be very selective - it is not even clear what exactly is supported as there is no single page of documentation about it.Having said that, the XiphQT development efforts go into ensuring compatibility with QuickTime architecture and as complete (and proper) support for QuickTime extension mechanisms as possible. But the way applications, such as iTunes, choose to use, or not to use, QuickTime architecture is beyond our control.Regarding the .ogg files meta-data missing in iTunes - to my knowledge, there is no way to fix this from the XiphQT source code point of view. However, there exist some AppleScript scripts that can help you with track's meta-data in iTunes
Is there any way to tell itunes that you have more than one music folder?I want to use the synch feature, to get covers for songs that I recently added, hopefully without having to rescan the entire library.Thanks
Hi, sorry for the delay.Just a word to say that everything seems to work perfectly so far.The "Export artwork" works like a charm.The "Import artwork" also seems to work, although I've only done some limited testing. The "Import every single jpg file in album folder" option looks great to me.That's all for the moment. Thanks.

I am quite confident it will work for you now.
thanks McoreD - your skill as a programmer is only surpassed by your helpfulness
18.104.22.168 Tracks without at least Artist, Album and Name tags will be ignored by iTSfv
I realize on this forum a lot of people are obsessive-compulsive about tagging their music but I have a number of tracks, especially classical, with no information on the artist or the album.
Bluenote, Please let me know if the ignored files are included again.
Thanks for that change! Unfortunately, I can't get the tick in the "Include tracks without Name, Artist and Album" to stay I click on OK but if I open the options immediately afterwards, the tick is gone again!Rating works well, but sadly excluding all my non-album tracks...
McoreD:I still get hungups, even when analyizing only parts of my library.The percentage in the title bar disappears, and the program just freezes.Also, a new thing: there's a scroll bar that says "itunes: writing tags" on top of every other window, that is pretty distracting (just covering what you are writing . Are you guys experiencing this? Is that intentional? Can we get the old behavior?Thanks
Bluenote, thanks for pointing out that. Please replace the iTSfv.exe with this updated one
Minor point - the stats look a bit funny now with "Unknown Album" and "Unknown Artist" leading the field. I guess this is a consequence of your new implementation? I wonder if these unknowns could simply be ignored for the stats calculations? Back in v5.8, that's how it used to work...Another challenge for you? But even if you're now understandably fed up with me and my partially tagged files.... thanks again for the quick fixes!Sorry...... me again! This doesn't look right, does it? Why 2871 Unknown Tracks? Every single one of my tracks has a title, even if not an album title or artist. The saga continues....
Hi guys, a while ago I saw a program mentioned (possibly even here) that would generate statistics for the songs (which ones played, for how long etc.) on your iPod/iTunes. Was I dreaming? Tried doing a search but that didn't throw anything up. Would appreciate any pointers, thanks!
5.09.3.2 Partially tagged tracks will be accounted for Top # Tracks statistics
So iTSfv doesn't seem to crash with your Library? That's great to hear! How many tracks are there in your library?
P.S: Also it's nice to see your interests in iTunes Statistics have rooted years back
Is the exporting and importing feature entirely lossless? Could I be exporting all the artwork (regardless whether iTunes downloaded the artwork or if it was already embedded in the file) and then import all the artwork again and there wouldn't be any quality loss or filesize increase of the artwork?
Thanks again! Now there's just that weird message about scripts being active... or is that an iTunes limitation?
