Re: MM4 review: "From great to terrible?"

It takes +- 6 seconds for MM to start on my setup. ( and its not a cold start ) it takes +- 1 second for WMP12 to start on my setup. ( again not a cold start ) But look how much more control MM gives you than WMP! Pardon me if I'm wrong, but it seems you can't even edit your tags in WMP anymore. Or...

Re: Genres getting added to the database just by playing a t

In that case you shouldn't have started a new thread as per forum rules: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=40381 In the other thread, I mentioned that this issue affected MM3, not MM4. I would have reported it as a bug, but last time I reported a MM3 bug in here you told me not t...

At the time of creating that thread, the issue had only occurred when I was using MM3. It did not seem to happen in MM4, but now I can confirm that it definitely d...

Genres getting added to the database just by playing a track

I first noticed this in MM3 when using MonkeyTunes with Hyperfine's Remote for iTunes app, but it also affects MM4. When you play a file that isn't part of your MM library, sometimes the genre is read from the tag and added to your MM database. Any genres that get added in this way do not appear in ...

Tooltips - Separate the track listing tooltip from the rest

The tooltips are great for learning the app when you're new to it, but once I know what things do in MM I don't need to have tooltips active and so I like to disable them, particularly as they pop up on obvious things like the main play/pause button and they pop-up rather rapidly after mousing over ...

Do you mean here?.......

http://www.mediamonkey.com/addons/brows ... nce/skins/

Or is there another page that lists them? Cos that page definitely doesn't list all of the available skins.

Changing a couple of text colours in the Glided skin in MM4?

In the Glided skin in MM4, in the player section, the song title/artist displays in red. Also, when the you get the little pop-up in the corner of the screen when it changes from track to track, the song title is in red. http://i.imgur.com/ibua5.jpg Is there any way to change the red to a different ...

Is there a MM4 skin with a micro-player like this?

It would be cool if there was a skin that had a micro-player that had an "invisible" background. What I mean is, the player background would match the aero theme of the Windows taskbar so it would look like the actual player controls are built into the taskbar itself, rather than it looking like the...

Re: Tagging not remembered across sessions

I would first try and narrow down whether it's an issue with your tags, or whether it's an issue with MM. Download MP3Tag (it's free) and then take one of the albums that shows up as a weird genre, "<255>" or whatever, then open it in MP3Tag. Does the genre show correctly there? What type(s) of tag(...

Re: MM4 Library Problems

Because it took around 50 or so albums and basically threw out the tagging data and named them with Unknown for album artist. Which still made them identifiable but they didnt have all the correct parameters so they were not properly filed. I would take a look at the tags attached to those particul...

Re: MM4 Library Problems

I had the exact same problem. My music is split into nearly 40 separate genres. When I upgraded to MM4, it only showed the following genres: - Unknown Electro Hip-Hop misc The rest of it didn't show. I had other issues too. What I did is completely nuke my MM3 install so I could do a fresh install o...

Re: Need some very basic help

Thanks for your quick response. If I follow those instructions, will I be able to acces my songs by title, album, artist and style? There's 2 elements to it really: - 1. Ripping the CD and compressing the files. This extracts the songs from your CD and converts them to the format of your choice (MP...

Re: Displaying the correct album art in MM4

The best solution I've discovered is to do this: - Right-click just track 1 of the mix and choose Properties. Click on the Artwork tab. Make sure the box next to "Apply to all files in the Album/Series" is NOT checked, then move the folder.jpg image up so it's above the image embedded into the track...

I know it doesn't solve your problem, but I can drag and drop from Explorer to Now Playing in MM4, no problem. Is there a setting somewhere that prevents this perhaps?

Re: Displaying the correct album art in MM4

MediaMonkey chooses the first Art listed in the Artwork tab, so there is no way to fix this. Could it be something that's addressed in a future version? I don't understand the album art functionality in MM to be honest. You said that it chooses the first piece of art listed in the artwork tab. That...
