Kodi Music "Best Practice" Guide
#3
I manage my music library through iTunes. I still use an iPod in my car and am addicted to iTunes to help me manage my library and Artist/Album/Track info. I also rely heavily on rating individual tracks (if I can keep up with it) to help me assemble iTunes Smart Playlists. I haven't found a better Smart Playlist editor yet. Unfortunately, track ratings don't translate easily between iTunes and Kodi.

I use Kodi: Aeon MQ7 at home for Music and MediaElch for scraping with the same formats as you list above zag. There are (almost) no issues reading tags. I only wish Kodi could read a rating tag applied in iTunes. I've found a workaround program to embed iTunes ratings in mp3 files, but not for Apple Lossless (ALAC) files. Even playing around with tagging an ALAC file with a rating in dbPoweramp will not show in Kodi. Am I missing something? Based on the tables shown in the Music Tagging wiki (Thx zag) I am not too hopeful, but keeping my fingers crossed.

Can someone also explain why some artwork files are managed in jpg and others png?
