Brian E. Hanson:
To test the option’s preference for 5-stars, I created a short
playlist of six songs: one from each different star rating and
a song left un-rated. The songs were from the same genre and
artist and were changed to be only one second in duration.
After resetting the play count to zero, I hit play and left my
desk for the weekend. To satisfy a little more curiosity, I ran
the same songs once more on a different weekend without
selecting the option to play higher rated songs more often.
Monday morning the play counts were as shown in Table 1.
