Please note that foo_playcount takes over %rating%, %play_count%, and all other mappings corresponding to its native fields listed above, using these mappings to return the fields from its own database rather than from files themselves. If you want to display such fields from the tags of files rather than from the database, use $meta(rating) and so on in your title-formatting. This behavior has changed in version 3.0: previous versions would fall back to reading the field from the file's tags when the corresponding field was not present in the database.

It is important to note that the component cannot retrieve data from before it was installed; therefore, it initializes statistics when it is installed. Most uses of the %added% field, for example, will at first return the entire media library; this is because foo_playcount has no way of guessing when the files were actually added because it was not present at the time. Thus, the default value of %added% is set to the time that the component was first loaded. Any items added after foo_playcount is installed will have the field set properly because it is present to detect them.
