Re: ORGANIZE COLLECTION

You can sort on Genre, use the Genre node on the Media Tree, and use AutoPlaylists per Genre. Yes there are lots of ways to sort and group your music in MediaMonkey, but first you have to get a value for genre tagged on all of your tracks. I don't particularly use genre myself because it is much a ...

Re: Mediamonkey 5 v2024.0.0.3003 stalls when inserting "enchanced cds"

I had a similar problem with a couple of enhanced CDs, but then also not a problem with some other enhanced CDs. There are apparently a variety of types of ehnanced CDs and MM's balking seems to be a problem with specific types - don't know which. I found that I had to end up getting one enhanced CD...

Re: Setting a "Start time" fails to skip to beginning

I also utilise the start and end time settings to get specific subsets of long tracks, but have found that it can be tricky to get the new settings recognised. In particular, if you edit a file that is in the Now Playing list for start and finish time, then you have to remove that file from the Now ...

Re: MM 2024 install folder

I did as suggested above and just renamed my existing portable install from "C:\MediaMonkey 5" to "C:\MediaMonkey" then when each new portable install is upgraded it will overwrite the old one but keep the settings/skins etc. Sorry, forgot to state that one of my goals was to ke...

Re: MM 2024 install folder

I have used the portable installation forever, the reasons are lost in the mists of time. The new folder default makes sense from a Dev perspective but is a user-end PITA for all of the future reinstalls we'll be doing for the evolutions of the new version. My plan for dealing with the Installer new...

Re: Data entered in Properties disappears

Larry, I routinely edit metadata in Mediamonkey and it does a great job of preserving it. In order for Lowlander to help, you will have to be very specific about which part of which program you are in when this happens. Your existing description does not make clear what part of Mediamonkey you are u...

Re: Searching to replace

Hi, I also want to use Tag from Filename to remove a Composer field from the Title in some tracks. Here's an example pathname with a variable composer field at the end of the song title: E:\MediaMonkey Music Files\Harry Nilsson\Nilsson Schmilsson CD\Harry Nilsson _ Nilsson Schmilsson CD _ 01 _ Gotta...

Re: Playing list/now playing bugs

Hi Rob For what it's worth, I only use the Now Playing list in the " Play in Displayed Order " style that you described in your linked post. I haven't been concerned about shuffle simply taking me to another place in an otherwised unchanged Now Playing list, but I'd be happy to have shuffl...

Song Start Delay

Hi, I'm using MM5 in an environment where timeliness of playing a song is important. At the moment I am frequently experiencing a delay between my initiation of play now (either via double click with nothing playing, or via right click menu > play now) and MM's start of progressing the play counter ...

[REQ] Properties>Details>Start and End Time Units

Hi, On the Details tab of the Properties dialog box it is possible to set a start time and an end time for a track. Please see the attached image. https://i.ibb.co/kK7qVKV/Starttime-Endtime.png I get the impression that the start and finish values are added to the track's DB data when the track is i...

Re: Playback failed. Music file inaccessible in MM 5 Debug

I still think this is way too complicated.... Hi Rob, I've been with MM for 15 or so years and have had to migrate several times. I have always used a portable installation and paid close attention to the migration guidance, but yes I always approach the task with trepidation and will not attempt i...

Re: are there custom reports on MM5? [#20581]

Aaand ... I routinely export the whole library for processing in Excel. I have found that sometimes MM exports about half of the list instead of the whole thing, so I have now taken to: Selecting All Tracks from the media tree, and then pressing F5 to ensure that MM refreshes that list, before initi...

Re: Making Comments viewable in layout

I often use comments in order to shorten album names. So phrases like "Remastered"; "Deluxe Edition"; "Vinyl Rip" are in my comments field. As Lowlander points out this can easily be added to the columns AND can even be sorted. There are 10 custom fields availalble, ma...

Re: Making Comments viewable in layout

Hi, Yes, we did But I think it is limited to 256 Characters viewable. Thus I never recommend it. Hi Peke, There was a bug [#19252] which did cause only the first 200 characters in the Comment field to be reliably retained, now fixed. I routinely use the Comments field for long form context for trac...
