Which Build (Help > About) of MediaMonkey is crashing and what are you doing at the time?

How often does it crash, though. I just discovered it to sort and deal with my music library from the past 20+ years of just dumping everything thats .mp3 into a folder. So many duplicates. I have crashed 7 times in the (less than) 24 hours its been installed. Ryzen 5800X3D, 64 GB 3600mHz ram.

i feel a 64 bit version my help, like someone else said, keep a 32 bit version for legacy users.

That is individual files which are all likely relatively small. The main problem MediaMonkey can run into is the size of the database file and that has not been an issue yet.

Can we also work on a 16 bit version?

In my experience only programs which use gigabyte sized files benefit from 64bit,
My music library is 702GB #justsayin :wink:

In my experience only programs which use gigabyte sized files benefit from 64bit, and most 64bit versions I have seen use much more ram, and do not perform any better (in my experience worse) than their 32 bit originals.

Even Windows 11 is perfectly capable of running 32-bit stuff very well.

So my vote is definitely concentrate on improving the existing 32bit versions. I can see no reason to rush for the other.

There is only a 32 bit version and it should work just as well. What problem did you experience with MediaMonkey?

Media Monkey 32 bit

I had Win 10 and now upgraded to Win 11. I notice Media Monkey is 32 bit. Isnt there a 64 bit version? How do I download that one if there is? I have the Gold 5 version currently. Could be why I have had issues with your software. Thank you

When it comes to that and MM gets out on x64 we can talk about it. x86 have its purpose.

I'm pretty sure that these plugins that Ludek is referring to are ancient WinAmp plugins, whose development have long since ended. But since the development of MM5 has been emphasizing cross platform compatibility for a while, and the plan is to bring it to Mac OS (+ hopefully Linux), I'm not sure what we're gonna do with those plugins. We'll see in due time!

What I can say for certain is that we'll want the 32 bit version to be more mature before increasing the number of builds that see released. After all, releasing both a 32 and 64 bit version will double the amount of QA testing that has to be done. Can't say when that'll start, though.

Well I don't use any plugins though ;)
Can't you just make that the problem of the plugin developers? That's the way these things are usually done! :lol:

Actually we already have 64-bit compiler and compiled MM5 as 64-bit app. The problem is that it breaks compatibility with older 32-bits plugins and futher MM 32-bit dependent components, so it is not usable atm, but definetely planned for the future versions.

sounds like they need a better compiler ;)
