    One BIG Question:

    Do I, From Here On Out Develope This Into A Complete Song Db As Opposed To Just A Ratings Database???

    If so then
    1. I will need a lot more time to reconfigure what I have already coded.
    2. Decide whether or not to attempt to do this in vb(RR extention plugin) or just leave in in current form.
    (which I know 1000% better and would be able to more quickly get a beta tester out.)
    3. If left coded in autoit, I would req some additional support in RR(items mentioned in above posts)
    4. Database will be done using SQLite( Guino frowns upon its usage, but I don't)
    5. What Exactly would we want stored in the db, besides the common items(artist,album,genre,rating,num of times played,trackpath)?
    6. The whole importing thing. Right now, I can only think of two way this would work, one being based on file tags(mp3), the other based on directory struct(non mp3 or user that don't have proper tags) . I'm not sure how to get the info for any of the what I call odd filetypes(ogg..ect)
    7. Would the db building be done right in rr, or utilitizing a small importing app??
    8. Requires more learning as one goes along the path...
    9. Y does something that starts out simple and innocent ends up being big and nasty??
    End If

    I should also be shortly posting a youtube vid on what I working already...

    Seeing as I put the sugestion down I would have to say yes if possible.


    However it's up to you if you want to embark on the undertaking.


    What you could do is code it what you are happiest with (ie autoit) and somone (maybe be) could convert to VB

    Are you talking about programming projects or humans here?

    whatever additional support you would need inside the coding of rr i could help with.. but bein that i'm not proficient in SQLite i couldnt fully convert the plugin to VB. But if you need any additional commands/labels/indicators/list properties i can handle it.

    I also suggest having this be not just ratings based.. and i think ID3 tags are about the only way you'd get satisfactory results. My "beta" ratings plugin i tested was based on my own directory structure and even then i would get weird and unexplained results while rating music. I changed it to ID3 tags and ti works fine. It will require people to keep up with they're tags but 90% of music downloaded already has this data completed these days.

    Looking for some more input so that as I'm coding away, that I can start to figure out I'm going to accomplish it.

    What I'm looking for is the end user's input on how you would like to get new music into the database. I for one, don't plan on having to do a rebuild after adding new music. My current thinking would be a import folder that you would put the new music in and it would move it to the musicpath and import it to the db. Don't know, looking for more idea's or suggestions....
