Getting your y! music ratings

Hi, I'm at loss, spent the last hour or so clicking link after link going through the api and yql links and i can find no example that will let me pull my music ratings.
Any idea's how I can query this?
Thanks,
James

    James, there aren't any YQL tables available to pull all a user's music ratings, but you can query the Updates of the viewing user generated when that user rates a track by using our Updates Search YQL tables. For example, you could try ("http://y.ahoo.it/pK2pvnDw"):

    http://developer.yahoo.com/yql/console/?q=...and%20guid%3Dme

    You can change the 'type' value form 'trackrate' to 'videorate' and 'albumrate' if you want to get other ratings, too.

    Again, I know this isn't directly the API you're looking for, but hopefully can give you a means to getting some of the data you're looking for.

  • Thanks,
    I'm kind of done with launchcast/yahoo music, been using last.fm mostly these days which is where I hope to find a way to import my ratings once I can get them out of yahoo music/launchcast so I don't think I'll be rating anything more on the site. Thanks for the suggestion though, atleast I know i wasn't missing anything with trying to pull the data.
