Well you won't believe it, I worked on the same and have a plugin that
does most of that, but did not yet publish it. The ubuntu one sync
didn't work here. I still don't know if its a problem on my computers or
a general one but since contacts aren't synced properly it seems to be
an ubuntu one prob. The sync to desktopcouch itself is working good. I
solved the problem with initial sync. I don't sync playlists, because
mine are dynamic. I only sync song statistics such as play count and
rating. I also wrote a similar plugin for Exaile which cooperates with
the same data. But since the ubuntu one sync is not working here its not

What a great idea! I've created a few scripts in the past to sync ratings and play counts back and forth iTunes and Rhythmbox. I always had the idea to make it generic enough to support more players, but your way is much better. Care to share your code?


I think we really should stay in contact.
