I just started seeing this again: Nil response from iTunes. Looks like the latest updates to iTunes may have broken things again. I have now moved to iTunes Folder Watch.

Mediamonkey locks up durning sync to d_itunes4.dll on my PC

Post by Captainsaveahoe » Wed Apr 01, 2015 12:59 am

Frustrations! I have a large music library(27,000+) tracks. When I am synchronizing my library to the d_itunes4.dll addon about 50% through mediamonkey stops working. No other error message then that. Any ideas?

Well put, this is exactly how I feel about MediaMonkey too.

Don't hold your breath, the plugin developer has stop supporting/developing this plugin. For more details, read earlier in this thread.

I was hoping the MediaMonkey developers would do a MM for iOS, but there is no hint of that happening either.

I've moved to iTunes.... :-(

Feature Request:
Can you add support for start/stop time syncing between MM and iTunes?

I have a large library with set start and stop times to skip intros and outros. Not being able to sync them to ios and android is really annoying. Music listening experience is not very nice since I have to manually skip start/end of songs when i listen on mobile.

See this thread in Synchronization Forum: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=78934

Does this script synchronize start and stop times of songs?

i tried to reuse this plug in today with MM version 4.1.6 .1624

It works for files but it misses the creation of playlists in the MMiTunes folder. Therefore no way to push the playlists to iPod..
The issue is printed below (end of the plugin sync process):

d_itunes4.dll 2438 13:37:33 EXCEPTION Log cleared

Stats from MediaMonkey to iTunes

Post by alexey2284 » Sun Nov 23, 2014 5:46 am

How сan I export my MediaMonkey stats and import her in iTunes?
I have a music collection of more than 20 000 songs. All of them are on different hard disks. I tried to use ITunes Plugin, but he copies all my songs in the same folder on the same hard disk! When I add songs to iTunes from different hard disks, their statistics don't appear.

The plugin works very well with MM 4.0.7.1511. When I upgraded several months ago, it did the full re-copy, which wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for 50gigs of music files, many of which were FLACs! I went back to 1511 and decided to stay there with its warts and all until hell freezes over or another viable music manager comes into the horizon. I had nightmares of iTunes being terrible at scaling for large collections, so that program is a no-go for me.


I had to roll back to d_itunes4.dll 4.1.0.3103, but I can confirm this is working for me again with MM 4.0.7.1511 and iTunes 11.1.5.5. I had to go through all the advanced recovery options (delete all d_itunes4.dll instances, delete all iTunes tracks, and clear MMs DEVICETRACKS table) in order to get it working, but it's synchronizing for me now.

Has anyone successfully gotten this plugin to work on Windows 8 with iTunes 11? If so, can you share what versions of MM, iTunes, and the plugin you are using? I would really like to be able to sync my play counts and ratings back to MM from iTunes one last time so I can find another solution.

I am using dBPowerAmp Convert right now to convert a few thousand FLAC to Apple Lossless ; hopefully it works :)

I will still keep MM around n the toolbox for any specialty needs that come up...but I think the time has come make the move to ITunes as my new music management software.

I am going to get shot down in flames for admitting this but I have moved to iTunes on my Mac.

iTunes gets much criticism about being rubbish but it is rock-solid stable and it works 100% on my Mac - both important aspects for me. I do miss some of the advanced management features of MM but I have started on a helper program which supplements the features that I want, I expect this to grow. Apple make Xcode freely available and have published an API for iTunes which is essentially the same as the one that I used under Windows. I had to swap my Delphi skills for Objective C skills which was the steepest learning curve.

It is not an MM equivalent by any means but for the features that I use it works.

I offered my source code to the MM developers first but they politely declined and suggested that another MM contributor might take it on, hence my earlier post. I have had no offers yet.
