Where are song ratings stored?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have been using Poweramp (paid) for quite awhile and love it.  Only one issue which has bugged me over the years - every once in a great while, all of my song ratings will completely be erased.  The last time it happened was actually my own doing due to a ROM upgrade (to Cyanogenmod 10.2), so I accept that as my own fault, but the song ratings have definitely disappeared at least 3 times in the past without me doing anything major.  It has been very frustrating to say the least.  So my question is - what file(s) contain the song rating info?  I would like this info to know what to backup just in case this happens again.

 

Thanks!

Why dont you use Titanium Backup on Poweramp? That will backup everything in a quite small size.

 

I actually did this - backed up using Titanium Backup (and yes my phone is rooted).  Restored Poweramp settings after all my song ratings were mysteriously removed once, and the song ratings were not restored.  I can try it again next time, but for now I have lost my faith in Titanium Backup (and Poweramp as well) as far as backing up.  I will try it again just to be 100% sure though.

Poweramp maintains all its media information in /data/data/com.maxmpz.audioplayer/databases/folders.db

You will not be able to navigate to this folder using a file explorer unless your device is rooted.

If you are interested in the database content:

If your phone is rooted then it is possible to take a copy and move it to your pc. Using a sqlbrowser (just search for sqlite browser) you can explore the structure.

Ratings is simply a field with a number 1 to 5 in it. quadrant5 probably backed up a database where the fields had been reset.

Will adb backup command backup this ratings to pc from a non rooted device so that I can restore in the phone with same ratings again?

Give TheoKlink's app a try. It can now backup and restore ratings from Poweramp's database (and even write them back directly into the music files if you wish).

Better still, use my app to write your ratings to the ratings tag of the file itself. It can do this for mp3, m4 a and flac.

Sorry Andre, just saw that is what you said.
