Updating Playcounts [FIXED]
Whenever Yamipod tries to update the playcounts, it doesn't load. It just says Updating Playcounts forever(or until I close it). However, it works fine after opening and closing iTunes.

I'm using version 0.61b9 (did it with b7 and b8 too)
40gb 4G iPod

Other than this problem, it works great. Good job.

Re: Updating Playcounts
Belive me it's not a bug, it's just really slow. I'll check if I can speed up this updating process.

Re: Updating Playcounts
Alright, thanks. If you can't speed it up, it would be nice if there was an option to turn it off or something. The playcounts serve no use to me.

Re: Updating Playcounts
Look under TOOLS->PREFERENCES and click on the tab labeled "Play Counts". Uncheck "Update Playcounts on Startup".

Re: Updating Playcounts
new pre release 0.61b10:

I rewrote the update playcount code. I did some small benchmarking and it's about 50-60% faster.

The big improvement is that you get the percentage of the updating process. Should it be still to slow, you can disable it as loosegroov suggested.

Please try it and let me know if it's working better,

Re: Updating Playcounts
It works much better now. It only took ~1 minute this time. Before I let it go for 15 minutes and it still never updated. So it's a lot more than 50-60% faster for me. I don't know how I missed the option to turn it off though. But it looks like I won't need to. Good work and thanks.
