Distinguish not rated (-1) and rated 0 files

Post by phramusca » Tue Jun 05, 2012 7:11 am

Hi,

By default, rating in database is -1, but we cannot distinguish visually in GUI the difference from a non-rated file to 0-rated file.
Is it possible to display those 2 differently ?

Thanks for the good work.

I don't think this would be necessary. In other players, e.g. Rhythmbox and Amarok, Rating 0 equals "no rating".

you can make a dynamic playlist to select unrated tracks if you want. And even you can select from a genre or any other criteria too

Thanks for your replies.
Here is the reason of my request: I have made a Java tool (that I plan to alpha release shortly) to merge statistics (rating, lastplayed, playcounter and addedDate) between audio players. One of the player I sync is MediaMonkey on Windows (that I use at work as unfortunately I am running Windows) and this player makes a distinction between -1 (not rated) and O (displayed as a bomb icon). The other players I sync are Guayadaque (on Ubuntu) and XBMC (on XBOX) that I use at home and those are, as you say assuming Rating 0 equals "no rating".
I assume I will have to make a special case for MediaMonkey ...
