Clickable ratings#


The behaviour of clickable ratings depend on the presence of foo_playcount. When installed, Playback Statistics will be used. Without it, RATING tags are written to your files.

There were changes during the 3.1.x series of components but foobar2000 2.0 Beta 18 dropped its internal Playback Statistics and the previous behaviour of using foo_playcount has been restored. Component version 3.2.0 or later is required to be compatible with this update.

Loving tracks on with foo_lastfm_playcount_sync#

It's now possible to love/unlove tracks on directly from clicking on the hearts in the MOOD column. This feature can be enabled in the Properties window. Hold Shift+Win before right clicking. The option is named Love tracks with foo_lastfm_playcount_sync.


  • You must have foo_lastfm_playcount_sync installed, configured and authenticated with your account.
  • You must have imported your loved tracks via the main Library menu because it works as a toggle for the current value.
  • You must enable the MOOD column and configure it in the settings to display %lfm_loved%. Ensure this is displaying your imported loved tracks as expected before clicking anything!


Now when you click the heart, it loves/unloves tracks directly on Only a succesful response from the server will make the icon update. Check the foobar2000 Console for messages if not working as expected.
