Play count not updating itunes 11
--when the played count property of an i Tunes track is changed with Apple Script.
I have an album in My Music, so the plays should be syncing, but the play count is not being effected by music played on my phone.
This feature allows for a more seamless transition between songs during playback, which can be useful in some situations; however, it seems this avoids the end of the song and i Tunes does not recognize it as having been played.
As a result, if you find that i Tunes is not updating play counts, then go to the program's preferences and in the Playback section uncheck the "Crossfade" feature (merely changing its value will not have an effect).
Every version of i Tunes seems affected, although version 10.x seems worse than others.
It can happen on any model i Pod, although Nanos and Touches seem to be the most affected.
Comparing the playcounts of the old and new library can( for example) be done in Excel.
