MTS file won't play [#9191]

I have a .MTS file that plays in all of my players (and video editors) - except Media Monkey. Should it?

Very short files - distortion at end

I have several WAV files of 1 to 2 or so seconds in duration. Such as brief chimes. They play perfectly in the other six players I've tried. But in MM they give an ugly noise spike at the end. Any suggestions as to the liklely cause and fix please?

Re: Unwanted taskbar icon

Unskinned. I think I've solved it shortly after posting thanks. It seems that the original icon I'd pinned was a shortcut (not sure how that happened). So I removed it and started again, this time going to C:\program Files (x86)\MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey (non-skinned).exe and using Right click > Pin t...

Unwanted taskbar icon

I have my main programs pinned to my Windows 10 taskbar, so that I can conveniently load one. And see immediately from the light blue line if it is running, with at least one window open. But unlike all the others, MM creates a duplicate icon when it's started And confusingly transfers the blue line...

Re: Scripts, Extensions - what is the distinction?

Thanks. As per my other post 'How to set up MMbackup?' I don't get any dialog when I run the Backup add-on, so cannot make or check whatever settings are necessary. It just gives that error message when it runs. It's frustrating because it was working before I started trying to sort out my old playl...

Re: Restoring without using scripts?

Thanks, understood.

I’d be interested to know what proportion of experienced MM users adopt that method rather than using a script? Its attraction IMO is simplicity.

How to set up MMbackup?

In my attempt to get this working again I used Tools > Extensions, Uninstall then Add to re-install. It reported success. But why does it not display the setup dialog so that I can check if there's some folder or whatever wrongly specified?

Restoring without using scripts?

I've made no progress with getting the Auto Backup script working again. And I find the whole topic of scripts (add-ons/extensions) in MM confusing! So I'm considering uninstalling it and simpy restoring if necessary by copying across my own nightly or weekly backups. Am I right that these are the o...

Scripts, Extensions - what is the distinction?

What is the difference between an Extension and a Script? They seem to appear in different parts of the program. I have just two entries under Tools > Extensions and seven under Tools > Scripts , which includes the two 'extensions'. I added the latter myself. And is Add-On yet another term for Exten...

Re: Backup 6.0 - Updated 01/07/2014

Is this thread the right one in which to ask questions about getting Auto Backup working again please? At 96 pages long I don't have time to read the lot!

Re: Reconstructing empty playlists?

I have them all again now! I moved the M3U files that were missing to a new folder and re-scannd. Somehow ended up with TWO of every playlist instead of NONE, so had a lot of deletions to make. Not sure if it's related, but my auto backup on close down is now failing, with this message: "Backup canc...

Re: Reconstructing empty playlists?

Thanks for your patience. Still missing many playlists. I'm including their folder in Folder monitoring but they do not get imported.

Re: Reconstructing empty playlists?

I reckon my folders are in a mess. I'll focus on reorganising them and see if that restores order.

Re: Reconstructing empty playlists?

Complications! 1. They've somehow vanished again. IOW, many of the entries under Imported Playlists now do not disolay any tracks. 2. Must I keep M3U selected in the filetypes for scanning? But that creates a duplicate, one empty, one OK. 3. When I drag an OK entry from Imported Playlists to the mai...

Re: Reconstructing empty playlists?

Bingo - thanks Lowlander!

I'd actually already added them to my scan specification, but had forgotten all about that category 'Imported playlists'. There they indeed are.
