Re: Organizing classical music for steaming thru stereo system

The Linked tracks extension makes the playing of classical compositions easier. It works so that all linked tracks are automatically added to now playing once the first track (movement) of a composition is started. If linked tracks is used, only the first track of a composition need be added to a pl...

Re: Alternative iPhone music app

Onkyo's HF Player will see and play all the tracks synced to iTunes (or whatever it is now called). It will also play FLAC files synced to it either by using the file transfer process in desktop iTunes or they can be downloaded from iCloud Drive or Adobe Document Cloud (I use the latter and it is se...

Re: File names

You don't say what car radio you have, but you might check whether the manufacturer has a program that organizes music the way the radio wants it. Kenwood, for example, has Kenwood Music Editor Light which organizes things for my Kenwood radio. It has several options, allowing the user some choice i...

Re: New user: mini-player available?

I don't know if this option is available in all skins, but in the one I use there is a small (and I do mean small) symbol with a down arrow at the very upper left corner of the screen. Clicking on it gives you the option of choosing a Micro or a Mini player. (A warning: the micro player doesn't work...

Re: Help with imported iTunes playlists from old PC

An xml file, despite its extension, is just a text file (which is why you can edit it in Notepad). To save it from Notepad: Save as Change Save as Type to All Files (*.*) Type in the file name you want to use, with xml extension (i.e. itunes_for_mm.xml) Do be smart and use a different file name than...

Re: Best/Most Currently In Use High Quality Format

That's true. For iOs devices MMW cannot sync files for anything other than the native Music app (ex iTunes). The latest version of Onkyo's player syncs from several cloud sources. Vox, I believe, syncs from its own cloud service. There is at least one iOs FLAC player that includes its own syncing co...

Re: Best/Most Currently In Use High Quality Format

There are several apps available for iPhone/iPod that play FLAC. I use Onkyo's player; it downloads music files from icloud or the Adobe cloud or can be synced using iTunes file transfer. It also allows the user much better control over equalisation than Apple's Music player. There are several other...

Re: How to copy music from MediaMonkey to external hard drive

Pardon me if I have misread you. Your music isn't actually "in" Media Monkey; MM just creates a database that references your music including tags that are in your music files and adds its own information (if it fits the MP3ID framework, this will be written to the file, otherwise it will just be in...

Re: Where is the Node Tree View in MM5???

Just what we need. Something that will make MM5 even more bloated. What is wrong with this being an add-on? Clearly from the comments, there are users who will never miss the nodes so it is not a core function. And for that matter why is the whole Google Play thing an add-on? It seems to be taking a...

Re: Where is the Node Tree View in MM5???

I also have a large library and have used MM4 and MM5 (when it doesn't crash) for at least 5 years and have never once used nodes to select music. The column browser + Show Details or Show Art with Details (MM4) provides what I regard as a much superior approach because I can organize the column bro...

Re: Playing music from hard drive to speakers around the house ?

Not on Alexa, but on Sonos, though you can get a Sonos that incorporates Alexa (but I'd just as soon not have Google people listening in). Thanks all for the help, it's appreciated. I do have Alexa Echo plus speakers, I can play music from the external hard drive through them, by saying 'Alexa play ...

Re: Playing music from hard drive to speakers around the house ?

I have not had any difficulty playing MM4 to multiple Sonos speakers. The biggest issue is that you do not have good remote control through MM4 (MonkeyMote has been inconsistent for me). The Sonos app on iDevices and Android does have remote capabilities, but the Sonos library does have a finite (th...

Re: only plays on sonos

If you right click on the player bar (I think it is normally at the bottom of the window) a menu should come up. Click on Choose Player and one of the Options should be Internal Player That's what you want.

Re: how do i import playlists from wm to media monkey

1. Export the playlist from wmp to a folder as a 3mu file (I do not know how to do this from wmp, but presumably wmp has a way to do this) 2. Add/rescan files (under File menu) from the folder in step 1 3. MM will report that no files have been added (this is incorrect) 4. Look under Playlists > Imp...

Re: how to save my playlist?

Sorry, it is true as lowlander says that MM saves a playlist as you create it. Perhaps you should post screenshots of what you are doing or the steps you are taking to create one if you think they are not being saved. But maybe you want to review this first: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.ph...
