Iphone play count not updating itunes
After upgrading to i Tunes 11, however, some users are finding that these statistics are not being updated, and songs can be played numerous times with no change to the dates and counts listed in the library.
This problem has not happened with everyone who has upgraded i Tunes, and after users investigated this issue in a rather lengthy Apple Discussion thread, they found that this issue is linked to the use of the i Tunes crossfade function.
Every version of i Tunes seems affected, although version 10.x seems worse than others.
Well, Internet Tough Guy™, I can give you good reasons why people care about play counts. It’s a website that keeps track of which songs you play, and offers streaming radio stations based on that info. The whole thing stops working if play counts aren’t updated. i Tunes has a nifty feature where you can create a playlist consisting of (for instance) “every song I’ve added to my library in the past 60 days and played more than three times in the last 30 days”.
Whenever you play a song in i Tunes, the program keeps track of the number of times the song has completed playing, how many times it is skipped, and when these events occurred.
This information is stored in the library and used to help determine how to build automatic playlists from the songs you prefer, among other functions.
You can also access your music by clicking Media Library through the sidebar on the left.
At the bottom of i Explorer's Media Library is the Auto Transfer menu button.
