Re: Find if a file is in the library

It turns out that there is a real oddity in the way that MediaMonkey's QuerySong Function works. If you pass it a string of a file path on a network such as "\\myShare\myFolder\Songs\a Song.mp3" then everything works okay. On the other hand, if you have a path no a local drive then you first have to...

Find if a file is in the library

does anyone have a snippet of code to determine if a song (designated by a complete path on a disk) exists in the current library? I know I should use the Database and QuerySongs but I don't know how to prepare the query nor do I know the format of the return. I know this is a really fundamental thi...

Re: Available COM interface

Thanks. Is there somewhere I can go to find out what COM is planned to be included and what is going to be excluded (at least v4 things that won't be available in v5)? Thanks.

Re: Available COM interface

I am very confused. I recently decided to write some scripts (actually using COM within Visual Basic 6 and VBA inside of Excel) and I see that MM5 is not going to use COM any more. I think that's not a smart move but that's not the basis of this post. IN the first post of this thread it says "These ...

Reading Tags of Files not in Library

I know there is an easy answer to this and it probably has been discussed many times here but I can't seem to find it... I only add files to my library after the tags have been cleaned up. I have VBA code that I wrote for Excel where I can read and write tags using the MediaMonkey scripting (actuall...

Re: Descriptors for the 5 Custom Fields

I don't think that helps. This is the source of where I get my custom fields but it doesn't say what the field means. For example, I have a file "Take A Chance On Me" by Abba. I have defined in MM that the 1st Custom field is "Entry (Billboard)" and MM's File Properties dialog, in the Classification...

Descriptors for the 5 Custom Fields

I am working on some stuff using VBA/VB6 I will post soon that uses the COM interface so you can access all of the info for your tags the same as you can with a script except you don't need a script; you can use Excel, Word, the old Visual basic 6, etc. One question I have is how to determine the de...

Re: Custom Report 3.2 - Updated 29/07/2014

I tried your script to make an Excel XLSX file of a handful of selected files. The script stopped with the following error in a message box: Error #1004 - Microsoft VBScript runtime error Unknown runtime error File: "C:\Users\Paul\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey\Scripts\CustomReport.vbs", Line: 1090, Co...

Re: Automate MM from VB - NOT VBScript

I am able to access the MediaMonkey API fairly easily. What I show below I did in VBA in Excel but I am sure it will also work in VB6. I don't do .NET but I suspect it will work with the newer versions of Visual Basic too. I did this using MediaMonkey version 4.0.1 but I don't think that matters. In...

PlayList Continuously Shrinks in Unlicensed versino

I have a lifetime license & I've been trying to get my wife to switch to MM from iTunes for some time now. What better time than when v4 is released? Well, we have a problem that I can't solve and I am pretty sure it is just related to the fact that for now my wife's version is not licensed (and pro...

Re: Version 4 wiped out my Custom Fields

I believe it would be relatively easy. If there was an even number of fields in the "XXXSongs-DB_Custom" sections it might be reasonable to assume they come in pairs where the first custom field was the title of the first tag and the next entry was the second entry which would be the text that goes ...

Re: Version 4 wiped out my Custom Fields

If someone like Amazon or Apple put something in the special custom tags and it is something I don't care about, as long as I could tell what it was (i.e., a paired title/data thing), I could easily ignore what they had put in their file. That would be perfectly fine with me. As long as I defined th...

Re: Version 4 wiped out my Custom Fields

I think I have figured out what is going on. There was a time during version 3 releases that the documentation said that the custom tags were not saved in the file but rather in the database (I think). However, I just looked at another PC I have that is running v3.2.4.1304 and in the Help it says ba...
