Hi Guys,

Some news about MM RT.

Since I moved to SSD, the "music blocked for a second each xx seconds" issue vanished. Probably coming from my old SATA hard drive.

I keep having some issues:
- Trying to play, either by folder or artist choice a whole collection, MM crashes.
- Might not be you : I rely on a touch screen, not a direct touch PC. The sliding does not work, but this may come from the driver itself. Investigating...

I don't think this is planned at the moment.

Windows Phone App ?

by Bluemax2000 » Sun Jun 22, 2014 6:10 am

Hi there,

I am using MMW + MM8 + MMA and I am considering to switch from Android to windows phone. Will there be a dedicated windows phone app in the future? If I understood latest windows phone / RT news right both will merge in the future. Actual both stores are still separated, so I guess no possibility to buy and install the RT app on windows phone.

As far as I could see windows phone lacks of a good media app like MM, especially FLAC support and so on.

Thanks for a short answer!

BR,

Bluemax

Hi -

I am trying to use MM on a new touchscreen win 8.1 laptop. The standard app doesn't work too well with touch. I've already upgraded to gold, but I'm starting to wonder if the Metro version might not suit me better. If I understand an earlier post, I can't have both versions use the same db, right?

Which version is a better bet for my situation? (around 10K songs, mostly FLAC)

In the Settings under Playback you can enable automatic Lyric lookup.

No, you only can access the MediaMonkey for Windows (MMW) database through UPnP (DLNA) on MediaMonkey for Metro.

Hi. I just started using the app version of media monkey and I find a couple of major features missing or hard to find. If these features are not available from the touch screen interface is it possible to have the desktop version pointing at the same MM.DB?

I agree with the Phone 8 request, how difficult would it be to enable this on windows 8 phone as well? MMW, MMA, now MMWP?

Just as you delivered this for Android, my office hands me a Windows 8 phone and I'm back to the drawing board...

PLEASE?

Audible audio is not currently supported by MediaMonkey. Audible made support only for WMP and their own player, their codec cannot be used in other players. We will try to negotiate it with them (for use in desktop version of MM4), but I am doubtful about the result.

MediaMonkey for Metro (MM8) is not a replacement for MediaMonkey for Windows (MMW), but it complements it as a Metro option. For a full feature set you'd still use MMW.

Last.fm doesn't work with MM8 at the moment however you can stream from MMW to MM8 and have MMW scrobble to last.fm that way.

MediaMonkey Metro - Cluttered Artists List

by Brand » Tue Aug 13, 2013 11:31 pm

As I have many albums with various artists (each sond has in the tag the artist name, the AlbumArtist is VA). The new MM-Metro-Interface is now cluttered with artists who have only one song when I select "Artists". Artists who have their own albums are lost in the mist. How can I show a list sorted by AlbumArtist? Why is there no button for AlbumArtist? I can bear which the many chrashes and some Artist have now 29 Albums for 29 songs (?) and that functions are less than classic MM. But the missing AlbumArtist I cannot accept, I am even considering now to switch to iTunes (shame on me).

Is there any way to get last.fm to work with this?
