    Hi, I was just looking at setting up some smart playlists and had a question about Ratings. I currently rip my music using EAC to flac files. I use foobar to do tag editing and copy the files over to an external hard drive attached to an unslung NSLU2.

    Where does firefly read its ratings from? What is the easiest way to apply ratings to my files? Are ratings only supported from iTunes?

    I’m not sure that flac supports ratings. If it does, or if your tagger supports it, I’d like to see a flac file tagged that way so I could extract the rating info back out.

    I did some google searches and there doesn’t appear to be a standard for putting ratings into flac files. Here’s an interesting link where it’s discussed.
