Ratings best practice

Post by perelin »


I´m thinking about ditching good´ol iTunes in favor of a raspberrypi/mpd combo. My only concern is the handling of song ratings (rated 4000+ songs and depend heavily on some sort of rating feature). I goggled around a bit but didn´t find anything concerning the handling of music ratings in the mpd context. My guess would be: it has to be done by the client, doesn´t it? So:

What is the best practice of handling song ratings with mpd?
How do you do it?

(I wrote myself a little script that embeds my iTunes ratings into the actual mp3 files as id3 POPM frames. So I´m willing and able to do all the necessary conversion tasks myself.)

Help and advice is very much appreciated!
