Re: MM Cloud

Thanks. Is there a simple guide for how to set this up?

Sounds like a Plex setup so then the next question is, how is this different/better than something like Google Music?

Re: MM Cloud

Remember, as the OP, what I was mainly advocating was LOCALLY stored media (most of our collections are huge if we're MM fans) but a browser-based client. The Windows client felt old when I posted that thread way back when. It hasn't gotten younger since. Now, at least, there are apps coming for oth...

Re: MM Cloud

1. Google Music's app is there only to sync songs. Once done it's no longer needed. I haven't had it running on my system for months. 3. Space is becoming a non-issue on many services including Google Music. Again, that's going to continue on that way with each passing quarter. My hope is to then ha...

Re: MM Cloud

Sorry but this again has absolutely nothing to do with what I've described. The benefits of what I describe include (but are not limited to): 1. No need to install anything on a device beyond the browser (this fails that). 2. No need to be concerned with networking of any type including opening port...

Re: MM Cloud

Wow, I stopped getting updates on this thread and assumed it died. Then this morning I read this story: http://massively.joystiq.com/2011/09/20/mmobility-illyriad-devs-shine-light-on-html5/ It's all about how HTML5 is changing the face of gaming and that soon all gaming will be done via the browser....

Re: MM Cloud

Dreadlau, I hear you. One problem here. They already have sold all of us and in some cases it was years ago. As a business consideration one needs to very much think about how to entice new customers to come in and that's where I'm seeing a possible trouble spot. If the rest of the world shifts--and...

Re: MM Cloud

I used to have those numbers as I was involved with a project called Tunebug (tunebug.com) where we had the numbers from Barnes and Noble, Best Buy and other good sources. And that was 18 months ago. If you've been watching the tech news, many outlets have already called the PC a dead platform. I do...

Re: MM Cloud

I've seen the same thing too. One big difference here is that I come from a heavily tech dev and marketing background so this is pretty much what I do and get paid to do. Joe Bob who works in the mail room upset that the product doesn't do something he wants can have all the opinions he wants. I'm s...

Re: MM Cloud

One other observation about this: Over the weekend I was talking with some friends when one of the asked me about the old e-mail program many of us knew as Free Agent (and paying customers like me knew as Agent). I was on the beta team for a long, long time with this one. As the world around Agent c...

Re: MM Cloud

Thanks. It's useful, clearly, but still not going to fit the changing needs of many out there. This user included.

Re: MM Cloud

Many programs these days don't need "portable" versions because they were bright enough to never buy into the Windows Registry BS Microsoft peddled ages ago. Those who did ended up realizing what a bear it is to do anything with their apps aside from a Microsoft-approved install type. Anyone that's ...

Re: MM Cloud

Okay, but that's not feasible for the uses I have in mind where installing things locally won't be the best option (other people's equipment and them feeling it might be risky). Plus that would require Windows and won't work on a tablet, etc. Is it additional designed to work on a drive here and all...

Re: MM Cloud

I'll have to read up on this one. I don't see it referenced on their site and the wiki doesn't really explain it either.

Is this just the full MM is some sort of way or a totally different build? Are there limitations?

At least it's an option which is better than where I thought we might be.

Re: MM Cloud

So how, while I'm at a friend's house for a week, do I get access to MM from that external drive to edit a few files, create a playlist, etc? What I'm suggesting is, for more money, having access to MM via a cloud app that knows where my music is and bring to bear all its functionality. Again, playi...

Re: MM Cloud

I keep getting excuses that are limited entirely to the cloud. My music is on the cloud. I have no problem playing my music at any time. Why? 1. Spotify can play any of my own music locally and keep it local. 2. Google Music can also work just fine with music both on the cloud and taken from your lo...
