    Maybe you could build your own file from the itunes export and then import that file with the backup/restore/clean feature of the trackstat plugin. I use that when I need to move LMS server from one machine to another.
    The structure the backup file is simple :
    Code:
            <track>
                    <url>file%3A%2F%2F%2Fmnt%2FMusic_collection%2FCDmed%2FBalthazar%2FRats%2F04%2520-%2520Joker%2527s%2520Son.flac</url>
                    <playCount>4</playCount>
                    <lastPlayed>1436250015</lastPlayed>
                    <added>1431215206</added>
            </track>
            <track>
                    <url>file%3A%2F%2F%2Fmnt%2FMusic_collection%2FCDmed%2FBalthazar%2FRats%2F05%2520-%2520The%2520Man%2520Who%2520Owns%2520The%2520Place.flac</url>
                    <playCount>3</playCount>

                    <added>1431215206</added>

    Create a backup file, add your lines, reload the file and maybe it would work.
    I have only one library, I don't know if that could make a difference with several.
    Of course, you would need a script to translate from iTunes stats structure to trackstat structure file. It's looks feasible, maybe the dates translation is not so easy.
    Hi,

    thank you for the suggestion.
    I will spent some time writing such a script. It does not seem to be complicated indeed

    Regards

    Good luck then. I'm not a "script master" myself, but I think I could help you if you need.

    If you're on a mac I can think of one simple way: in iTunes find tags your tracks don't use (like comments, grouping or whatever works for you) and then use Applescript to have iTunes write the metadata you need to import into LMS into the empty tags. Sync the changed tracks to your LMS media location. Then in Custom Scan, you can specify the tag from which to import the values. And then when all is done just erase those tags again and a final sync and... voilÓ.

    Multi Library or Custom Libraries support Please help.

    Sent the below message but couldn't get any answer.
    Anyone can help?
    Please
    Thanks

    Dear Erland;
    First of all thanks for your efforts for the LMS.
    I've been trying to use "Multi Library" plugin for a long time but never succeeded.
    Couldn't find info about how to use it so gave up.
    Never been able to see a "create new library" tag.

    Now I found the info that you also have a plugin named "Custom Libraries" that I can use.
    The plugin was used to be in your beta repo (http://erlandplugins.googlecode.com/...nk/testing.xml) which does not work anymore.
    So I decided to install it manually and downloaded the file "lms-customlibraries" from "github".
    I am using an old MacBook Pro using Os 10.6.8 as a server version:7.9.1.
    I have too many plugin folders;
    Inside root/library/Application support... , User/library/Application support... , User/library/caches... and so.
    And never has a folder name "SqueezeCenter" but always "SqueezeBox.
    I downloaded the .zip file and extracted it to my desktop.
    Now I have a folder named "lms-customlibraries"
    First of all I want to know how to use the this folder. Without changing anything or using the folder or the files inside this folder.
    And my second question is where to put this folder or files. Is it enough to copy and paste it?
    I've tried put the folder to all the plugin folders I founded and restarted the server.
    The server stoped responding...
    I have no idea if I need to run a script or not and if yes what the script is like because I am just a music listener. :-(
    So I never got it worked...
    Please Help me.

    I also appreciate if you can inform me how to use the "Multi Library" plugin.
    Regards
    Yux
