Re: Windows update to new version, MM can't find codecs anymore

By the way, for those who don't already know, the EASIEST and most foolproof way to install the correct Media Feature Pack in Windows 10 is do do it through the Control Panel, under Apps and Features... Select optional features and you'll be able to add the media pack from there.

Re: sporadic MM client lockups when interacting with UPNP/DLNA

Thanks Lowlander.

I just spent the time to capture a debug log. Not sure if there are clues in there. It's too nebulous for me.

sporadic MM client lockups when interacting with UPNP/DLNA

I have 2 PCs. Both run Windows 10, and both run the same version of MM (4.1.28.1905). One PC has my music library, and has the DLNA media server enabled and configured in Media Monkey. The other, is just a client. I'm having a lot of issues with the client side (or maybe it comes from the server?). ...

Re: DLNA running and service problems

Sounds more like a networking issue than a software issue?

Re: Windows update to new version, MM can't find codecs anymore

I'm tired of Windows. After reading some of the helpful posts, I found out there's an alternative codec available on MM's site. The MAD codec. I installed it... That should take care of this going forward, without having to reinstall a media pack every time Windows decides to update. I swear the mom...

Windows update to new version, MM can't find codecs anymore

I've had this issue before, and came to this forum to receive advice to fix it, but this time, the fix hasn't worked. Windows 10 was updated to 19041, and, as expected, I downloaded the corresponding media feature pack, and installed it. Even after a reboot, MM still gives me a missing codec error w...

Re: Denon can't see MM service unless MM app is running

The service configuration doesn't happen at software install time, it's under the media sharing options. I've had issues with it, however. It doesn't always run in the background by itself, and it seems to want to shut itself down when I decide to shut off the client app. I think this stemmed after ...

Re: Can't find CD in freedb

When that fails for me, I proceed with ripping anyways, which will give you untagged files. I rip them in a spearate folder. Then, I use MP3tag to look up tags for the files. It connects to other databases, including amazon, and discogs. I have yet to find a CD it hasn't recognized. Maybe it happene...

Re: Basic query re storing MP3s etc

There is another more direct approach to achieve what you want. You can create playlists. A playlist is a list of tracks, indexed in the order of your choosing, that you can queue up for playing, and it will play all those tracks. You can create a playlist from tracks located in different directorie...

MMclient to a PLEX server?

I'm considering different options to move my media library from my PC to a NAS. I want to keep using MM as a client on my PC, which doesn't require any kind of special configuration on the NAS, other than file serving. However, I'd also like to keep a DLNA server for my living room stereo system, an...

Re: Flac on NAS - best strategy?

So, if you're using your NAS as the file server, just a basic repository of your media, I will go from the assumption that your PC stays on and runs the Media Monkey Server service. This server service is NOT necessary to play all your media on your PC. Your media is directly rendered by the MM clie...

Re: MEDIA MONKEY UNABLE TO DECODE THIS FORMAT

I ran the media feature update and mp3's and mp4's play again... That was it... Kids, If you are running Windows 10 Pro, don't forget to upgrade the media pack EVERY update... Thanks Microsoft! Quick question. Does MM support .mkv videos? That one still doesn't work. Though I don't recall ever tryin...

Re: MEDIA MONKEY UNABLE TO DECODE THIS FORMAT

I can't confirm this yet, but I'm starting to suspect that the update to 1903 has borked media playback. This is windows N (10 PRO), and it requires a media feature pack download. The update is probably what is controlling this sort of stuff. OGG and FLAC may be spared as they aren't built into wind...

Re: MEDIA MONKEY UNABLE TO DECODE THIS FORMAT

Version 4.1.2.4.1883, on windows 10 version 1903 build 18362.175

I did more tests this morning and it seems I can play .FLAC, and .OGG. I can't play any videos, nor can I play .MP3...

Seems Bizarre. I play those fine with other programs.
