Good point, that would work for me as well! Maybe I should have a look at those specialized tag editors. I have so far mostly used iTunes, and I have to admit that during the discussion, i had iTunes as player and tag editor in mind. The problem with iTunes is that it locks the library so only one person can edit tags at a time. So I thought: A bunch of people (using iTunes, connected via firefly) could play and tag songs at the same time if only firefly supported tag editing. Anyway, this is how I was thinking. As for now, it is interesting for me to see how others are using firefly, so thank you CCRDude for your feedback!
Well CCRDude, the issue is that with a large library ratings become more and more useful.
And ratings aren’t really a static thing. If there would be a nice program that I can use to listen to my music and also rate it, I’m happy. (Many tools do this)
But I haven’t found a single one that also stores the ratings in the track’s metadata yet.
Banshee 1.6 is said to have this feature. A previous patch sadly doesn’t work anymore.
