Never tested with acc files only mp3. I suggest that you install QuickTime under wine

hummm ok... Well I tried a mp3 and it gave same message. I think I forgot to install something?????

I hit ok to the install quicktime dialog then it too me to finder and downloaded the .dmg mac quicktime file.

so any advices how to get music to play? I did steps listed pretty accurately! and then after I get music to play I'd like to get the unknown tracks claened up. MM will do that right? and get all album artwork? also can MM get lyrics somehow?

thanks, appreciate help to get me started going...

No. But the version http://www.mediamonkey.com/addons/brows ... ut-plugin/ is 0.15b too. I successfully use this daily.

Are you adding the music files to MM first before playing? You will not be able to just double click the music files in Finder to start playing them.

I need more to work with. Exactly what point do you get these messages?

Follow these steps ...

* Obtain WineSkin's Winery from http://wineskin.doh123.com/tiki-index.p ... =Downloads and Install (The Winery is the central location from which all the bits of program are downloaded and updated)
* Run Winery and update the Wineskin Wrapper (this will download). This can create your new MM4.app folder with the embedded Wine bits.
* Add a new Wine Engine (this will download). This is a precompiled Wine build for Mac.
* Click "Create New Blank Wrapper" and name it MM4. This can take quite some time. Download the Gecko installation when prompted.
* Note that your new MM4.app will be at /Users/dad/Applications/Wineskin/MM4. Click "Open folder in Finder"
* Doubleclick click the MM4 app to open Wineskin and Click "Advanced"
* Click "Tools" and then "Winetricks"
* Choose "IE6" off the drop-down list and click "Run". This will download (slowly) and install.
* Double click the MM4 app and Click "Install windows software"
* Navigate to your MM4 installation exe file.
* Follow the normal MM installation. Habitually I don't run in skinned mode, I find that it runs faster. Deselect "Run MediaMonkey now" at the end.
* Choose the "MediaMonkey (non skinned).exe" off the provided list
* Quit
* Double click the MM4 app folder to launch MM4. This can take quite a while to run the first time.
Ok, to get MediaMonkey 4 working on mac, follow these steps above as outlined by markstuartwalker, EXCEPT, use the 1.3.24 engine or lower, as doh123 has said, and use MM beta 4.0.0.1424 or later. afterwards go here and download the mmip http://www.mediamonkey.com/addons/brows ... ut-plugin/ . Then run Mediamonkey (preferably in non-skinned) and go to Tools>Extensions then Add, select the inmad mmip file and restart Mediamonkey. It should play songs without stuttering. I am sorry that i really didnt put this into a 1,2,3,4... because all the credit goes to markstuartwalker for all the work he has done to get MM4 working with wineskin, and to doh123 for his advice and for wineskin of course. Hope this helps, I pretty much followed mark's steps and kept up to date with any changes.

I don't think the Mac hardware and OS matters too much but I'm running Lion 10.7.1 on a Macbook Air. What are you?

I don't understand this reference to iTunes either. iTunes does not appear in this installation so what are you referencing?
I have MAD and itunes add on installed I believe
Create another Wineskin Wrapper and follow the steps rigorously just in case you omitted a step before.

10.6.8 MAcBook Pro. sure that does not matter.

MM when first open searched and found all the songs. Oh I installed the MAD and itunes extenisons: inmad_%281%29.mmip and ditunes4-20110914(1).mmip

I can make another Wineskin Wrapper and do steps rigorously.

can't wait to play a song with MM. :) appreciate your help. no idea what the quicktime message is about.

thanks Mike

I prefer to keep the diagnosis public so others can learn

This is a winetricks error. You seem to have a corrupted/partial download file in the cache. Delete the /Users/mikederr/Library/Caches/winetricks/ie6 folder and repeat the exercise.

OK, I've reproduced it. It looks like the download source is corrupt in some way 'cos if I delete my cache I can't download it either.

I've uploaded a copy to here. Save this to the ie6 folder and retry
