ArchSimian (Linux) - Better playlists using the MM database

If you are looking for a way to generate better playlists from MM, and have Linux (Arch), you could try ArchSimian (C++/Qt5 program). From the wiki page: You may want this program if you have a large music library and want to build a more complex set of rules for populating a playlist. Here, you can...

Re: When will you port to Linux?

I can run MM4 in a VirtualBox VM within Arch. But, I use Audacious to listen to my playlists (while silently playing the same playlist on my Android phone with the MM app to capture lastplayed times). For those using Linux with KDE, you could try my new C++/Qt5 app, ArchSimian. It is a sophisticated...

Re: Genre Finder 5.0 - Updated 05/08/2012

This wiki page lists all 191 genres as of Winamp 5.6.

Has anyone been successful in loading them all into genre finder and then whitelist/blacklist from it?

Re: Best way to run MM4 in a Windows VM

Lowlander, I always appreciate your help! I just figured it out, and it was my user error. When checking the scan folder, I failed to select the mp3 file type, so it basically complied and ignored scanning my library. Not sure how that got unchecked, but yes, it seems it is the most simple things I ...

Re: Best way to run MM4 in a Windows VM

It is not running perfectly after all, as I now see the "scan at startup" does not appear to be re-reading my file tags, as configured to do. I have scan at startup and scan continuously checked for my music library folder. At startup, the status bar shows "Adding 0 of 15000" where the number 0 rema...

I set up Oracle VM VirtualBox running in Arch Linux, with Windows 10 as the VM. I installed MediaMonkey., and used the script updatelocationoffiles to point to the VM address for the existing library. Everything is now set up perfectly in Linux as it was in Windows. The tricky part was getting the M...

Best way to run MM4 in a Windows VM

I wish to try running MM4 (and sync to MM Android App) in a Windows virtual machine running within Arch Linux (with 8GB of RAM). Is there anyone who has done so successfully? Which version of Windows works best when doing it, and which VM approach (VMware or VirtualBox) works best with MM4?
