Help for New User

Post by Marcia Brandes »

:oops: My husband set up Media Monkey on my Samsung tablet with his preferences and then he died. I can't figure out how to get a playlist in my name. Help says to drag and drop but I can't do that on my tablet, or at least I don't know how. I thought I was making a playlist and all it did was put songs into the playing queue. It says go to a folder but I can't even figure out how to do that. I can hook to my desktop and manipulate files that way if there is a way to do that. Thank you for any help you can give me.

I want to add 24K

Post by Dryst »

I do not use this app at all and have never used it before; however, I just installed it to my Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE 5G to figure this out real quick. My tablet already has media on its micro SD card. I simply pointed MediaMonkey Android to my existing media (audio files only).

Here is how I created a new playlist: ... jegyz&dl=0

Look at this screenshot above. First, click Music over to the left to select songs you wish to add to a playlist. You probably already have music displayed. For learning purposes, create a playlist from what is already there. Take baby steps before running. ... 5g50n&dl=0

Next, you must long press specific songs that you wish to add. For my example, I want to add 24K Magic by Bruno Mars. I pressed this song without releasing my finger holding onto the screen. The song will eventually change into a check mark indicating it is selected. ... j5rhv&dl=0

With the song selected, I next tap the add to playlist icon located at the top of the screen. From the right, it is icon # 4. It looks like a list with a + symbol. I have no existing playlists. So I get this pop-up asking me to add to a playlist. No idea why this is even showing, but it is what it is. My only option is to tap NEW to create a new play list. ... hmv07&dl=0

Next I must name my new playlist. I will call it Bruno Mars. After entering this text, I tap CREATE. ... kf70c&dl=0

Next, I get this question (no idea why I am getting this, but again -- it is what it is). For this question, I tap ADD. ... j2rh5&dl=0

Finally, my new Bruno Mars playlist is created. Tap Playlists over to the left to see the new play list. While on this screen, I should be able to tap the Bruno Mars playlist with options to play the content.

Try this out.
