Set Play Count in iTunes
I had some old mp3’s lying around that were semi-okay quality wise, recently I decided to buy the AAC audio files from iTunes. I quickly faced a dilemma; I’m pretty anal when it comes to music organization so how was I going to update the play counts on the new files?
I thought about manually updating the XML file but that was going to get tedious fast. Had a quick look for a quick and dirty tool, read a few forums and came across this ditty. Working an absolute charm in iTunes 10.1.1.4 on Vista x64.
Basically you’re downloading a zipped WSF file (Windows Script File) that once unpacked allows you to select a track in iTunes and then run the SWF to update the play count of your selection. In a dual monitor scenario this is easy as piss but if you’re single monitor bound then alt-tab to do the needful.
Happy play counting!
