Hello,
can you modified the Script for the version 2?
I tried to run under the new versions but it doesn't work.

I also had a problem where I was also running a script called "amarok_replaygain" and when both were running then Intro-Play would only work for the 1st song after I started running the script. replaygain was changing the volume during the intro of the song, and it made the Intro-Play script go into the "else" on line 58. This "else" statement kills the timer. So I removed the else and the 2 lines after it. And now Intro-Play works along with my other script. OP, why was this else statement put in the while loop? Will it cause me other headaches now that I removed it?

It annoyed me that every time you click the configure button it would reset the delay to 20 seconds. So if you change line 45 to read:
f = popen('kdialog --inputbox "Seconds to be played:" ' + str(self.seconds))

this will be fixed.

Smart DJ has useful code to save and restore the state (playcount / rating) of songs in this script. To the author: you're invited to take a look to Smart DJ code and copy it freely. It's licensed GPL.

It affects the score... There's no way to turn that off at the moment.

A solution is to use Intro-Play only on files, which are not yet included in your database.
Listen to your new stuff with Intro-Play and then decide to include it in your collection or kick it off your hd.

It doesn't work for my, using
amaroK CVS
KDE 3.3.2
Slackware 10.0

And I have a question: if you only play the intro
and then skip the song, will this affect my scores?
