Enabling that option means the files will be modified. that's not the option you're looking for. Were the files you tried to play in the media library?

Yes I've played multiple files and it does not seem to be working, but I am not sure of a better way to test this other than my playlist query.

Below is an example of my query. I'm probably doing something wrong there.



Please let me know of how to better toubleshoot the problem if there is nothing wrong with my query and let me know if I need to provide any more info.

Thanks,

Should be %play_count% not %playcount%

Hmmm.. ok. I tried "NOT %playcount% MISSING", "NOT %play_count% MISSING". "NOT play_count MISSING", and "NOT playcount MISSING"

I got the original query from here -> http://wiki.bowron.us/index.php/Example_Queries

Is there some other way I can troubleshoot? I tried putting the format as "$num(%play_count%,5) - %artist% - %title%" for one of my queries and the playcount showed as 00000 for all of them. %last_played%...

WAIT.. I think I got it! It was the query altogether. It's working like a charm now.

Thanks for your help,

Hello,

I know that Foobar statistic exists (foo playcount), I installed it, it's great but I don't understand how it could entirely fit my need as I have 4 computers connected on my NAS containing all my audio files.

I would like to share and synchronize the count play number of my audio files on these 4 computers. I don't want to manage 4 distincts statistic files DB (one by computer).

I guess the solution would be to set the  play counter in the meta info of a the files itself but I don't know if it's possible...

Any advice is welcome!

thank you

Hello,

I store my index_data folder (the one that contains the foo_playcount index database) in my dropbox folder, and synchronize it between all my machines. The way to do this is to copy the folder from foobar into dropbox, and then create a Junction back to the foobar folder in %appdata%. Only drawback with this approach is that you can't have multiple foobars open at the same time. Foobar only reads the index-data databases at application start up (and unless you use foo_jesus only writes them at app close). So if you play a song on computer 1, while foobar is open on computer 2, computer 2's foobar won't know about the play and when it next writes the database out to the file it will overwrite whatever computer 1 had saved.
