Oh sweet I've been looking for a way to boost my play counts on here for some unfathomable reason, what a useful feature this is for that specific application

What if we do a mobile style and a computer style in this site :-)

I figured out the culprit on this one. The site adds a play each time the file is requested. Certain devices/browsers load media in chunks; there's a large class method in the code that handles this. Every chunk load on an entry is causing a play to register. So the solution is to move the play adder to the player itself. What should count as a play tho? Right when it starts or a few seconds in?

a few seconds in - maybe 10% of track length

that would be bad for those rare 10+ minute entries. even if they didn't play the whole thing, it still gives a play advantage to short entries. maybe 15 secs/10% whatever is shorter?

playback of 50% of the song lenght. No more, no less.

Edit: maybe even full file/streaming retrival. Maybe that's taxing on the server, though.

10 seconds or 33.333333%, whichever comes 1st sounds like something worth considering
