View Full Version : Learning favorites and unfavorites

I have an extensive MP3 collection (16870 songs thanks to
www.allofmp3.com) with quite a bit of music that I haven't listened to
yet (I liked one song on the album and purchased the album for $0.50).
I would like to be able to play "teach" the system to play the songs
that are good and not play the duds.
For instance, when I pressed play on an artis when a "dud" comes on,
I would be able to mark it as "undesirable" and discourage it being
played in the future. After 3 or 4 marks against it, it never plays
again. On the other hand, I would like to mark songs as "favorites"
and encourage them being played in the future. After 3 or 4 marks for
it, it would be a permanent favorite or something like that.
I'm a little suprised nothing like this exists (or maybe I just
haven't been able to find it.) Can anyone point me to the right place
if it has been developed or some resources to develop something like
this if it hasn't? Thanks.

Pressing and holding the play button will delete the song from the current
playlist and move it to a special saved playlist called zapped.m3u. This was
intended to simply mark bad song or review later.

A ratings system is already a filed requested feature
http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=142

This is likely a feature that will be implemented once the SQL backend work has
completed. For more detailed information, please refer to Info.pm for current
information handling code, or subscribe to the developers list to keep track of
the SQL progress.
