Hello,

first of all, thank you for this great program and all possablities to use it.
It is nearly perfect, but I only miss the 'Rating' of music files.

I know the software 'MPDcon' has make available this feature with an external SQlite3 database.
But I would prefer to make the 'Ratings' available in the normal MPD database.

Do you think, you can insert 'Ratings' once a day in the 'Matadata_to_use' value?
(I know there are several 'Rating' values (MediaMonkey, iTunes, etc.) and there is no really standard, but could you please start with the 'MediaMonkey Rating'?)

Thanks a lot and best regards
CD71

Are you aware of MPD's sticker feature? It was designed to support ratings.
