Re: Anyone know about metadata?

Microsoft have not stopped supporting metadata for Windows Media Player. They have stopped supporting it for Windows Media Center - a completely different product and one they are probably aiming to stop supporting altogether - it isn't part of Windows 10 for example. They will also stop supporting ...

Re: Do you use Media Monkey? Why?

One of the reasons I moved on from Media Monkey is their decision to devote considerable resources to the lower quality MP3 only Google Play (yes it will upload your FLAC file but it will then change it to MP3). The future of digital audio is not in lossy formats like MP3. MQA is a way to store loss...

Re: Do you use Media Monkey? Why?

I originally used Media Monkey because it played FLAC format, then the best audio one could get for digital files. Unfortunately, I have had to move to other products to play my music as even better digital formats came along and Media Monkey when developing version 5 decided that it wouldn't keep u...

Re: MM5 & Chromecast Audio

Here we go again. I downloaded and installed 2185 and no Chromecast Audio once again in MM5. I will repeat: roon finds the Chromecast Audio with no intervention by me; Audirvana finds the Chromecast Audio without any intervention by me. Why would I ever consider MM5 as my main music player when it c...

Re: Add to queue playlist

Right-click on a track and choose Play Last adds that song to the end of the Now Playing queue. Is that what you want? You can also move songs up and down in the Now Playing queue - click on the song and drag it up or down.

Re: Bulk Folder Rename Creates Copies, only want "Move"

I don't quite understand what you have after Auto-Organize operates. Do you have two directories, but only one - the new one - has files or do both the new and old directory have files? If the former, then you may not have checked the obscure little box in the lower left corner that says "Delete emp...

Re: Increase the number of available tags

Yes, all the custom fields created in MM4 are available in MM5. However, they cannot be used as nodes in the media tree. I think a list of compositions would make quite an unwieldy list, but I think the artist node is pretty unwieldy for the same reason. Custom fields can, however, be used in the co...

MM5 & Chromecast Audio

I am revisiting this subject without attaching the previous discussion to avoid everyone having to read a long pointless discussion. I have both a Chromecast Audio and a Chromecast Ultra. As it happens they are both in the same room. MM5 finds the Ultra but does not find the Audio. Competitive produ...

Re: Filter out tracks using Auto Playlist

Did you try Property=Comment, Condition = doesn't contain, Value = wife's name? This works for me (using a different value, of course).

Why did you complicate Add/Rescan

Why did you decide to make the Add/Rescan process so much more complex and unwieldy in MM5? When I rip a cd (I don't use MM to do so) or download tracks, I do so to a folder called Copy to Here. That makes it easy for me to find the new tracks. To add them to MM4 here is all I have to do: 1. Click o...

Re: Unable to cast audio [#15477]

All it took was a simple re-boot to get MM5 to play to my Audio Chromecast. It also plays through the Chromecast Ultra on my TV with a display of the album cover, the album title, album artist and track name. Is it possible to get MM5 to display lyrics on the TV if the track has them? I also think i...

Re: Best way to send MMonkey to stereo? (Wireless? Bluetooth?)

Bluetooth can result in diminished audio quality, especially if the source is lossless. Audio Chromecast may not be produced any longer, but is hardly dead. There are many sources - just check on eBay. It works well and handles hi-res audio files much better than Bluetooth. Unfortunately, MM4 does n...

Re: Greyed tracks after changing file path slightly

You say you didn't move the files, just "slightly" renamed them by changing folder names. MM4 - and any other program you might use - will think you moved them, because you gave them a new address (and didn't tell MM that you did so). All the people replying to you are telling you that the first ste...

Re: Unable to cast audio [#15477]

I also get MM5 showing my Chromecast Ultra (connected to a TV) but not my Chromecast Audio. I did send in a ticket, but have heard nothing from it.
