    Song ranking/rating

    i know RR uses winamp so implementation could be an issue but when i used to have itunes on my pc there was a feature to rate from 1 to 5 stars how much u liked a song so this way when you played it on random your favorite song would come up more often.
    i tended to use it as a filter for filtering out skit tracks of albums etc (the ones with all the talking etc) i would rank them as a 1 and most songs got a 3 an occasional 4 for something i liked and a 5 for most recent stuff. would there be a way to have RR do a similar feature whether it be read/writing to the comment filed on id3 tags and puting a 1-5 value there to read and base playlists off of that. A favorites browse function per se. just a thought anyone else think this would be a good feature?

    As far I know, RR does not read mp3 tags as of yet.
    I would likt to have this feature implemented also so I can display the album art embedded in the mp3 files. This would get rid of the Folder.jpg in every album and displays the embedded image.

    I second the request for a ratings browse and for using embedded album art. Both features are in itunes and that's the ONLY reason I continue with itunes on the desktop.

    RR does indeed read ID3 Tags -- it skips the IMAGE tags on mp3s because they are incredibly slow to read from VB.. It's also a lot more efficient to have 1 image file for a bunch of songs than having the same image inside a bunch of files. In any case it is even possible to make special images for each mp3 file...

    It may not be hard to implement browse of songs by rating, but it would be quite something to MODIFY and to make it SAVE the ratings afterwards.

    I've been thinking of a way to store a value in the comments section that is proportionate to how much I like the song for some time now. I was thinking it would be nice to automatically calculate how much I like a song by storing the average percentage value of how long I listen to the song. If I listen to half of the song, the percentage would be 50%. I'm sure I'd have to store 2 numbers in the comments section, the first being the Average Listening Percentage and the second being the number of times the song was listened to in order to calculate the average listening percent.
