Re: Locate Renamed files - iTunes Match

Thanks all. It looks like advanced duplicate find and fix, with a fair bit of elbow grease on my part, will do just what I want. --- Lowlander: Wow, I remember you were the person who gave the useful advice when I first started using MediaMonkey 8 years ago and had questions. Thanks for many years o...

Locate Renamed files - iTunes Match

I'd like to use iTunes Match to re-download all my low-bitrate MP3s. (In 2001, I ripped a whole lot of CDs at 128 kbps.) The process is that you just delete the file and then tell iTunes to download it "from the cloud". The trouble is that iTunes downloads of course downloads it into your iTunes fol...

Airfoil vs. Remote Speakers plugin?

I'd like to use MediaMonkey on Windows computer to stream music to an Apple Airport Express. From my research, the options are Rogue Amoeba's Airfoil , and Eric Mille's Remote Speakers plugin From the website, Eric wrote his plugin because Airfoil was not available on Windows. Now Airfoil is, and I ...

I moved my library to a new hard drive. Problems ensued, but everything is mostly ok *except*, I've Lost All My Playlists. (Just discovered this yesterday.) Can somebody help me retrieve my old playlists? * I still have the old hard drive (with old MM DB on it) that I can connect via USB. So I assum...

Auto tag from Amazon sometimes fails to update last track

MM 2.5.3 Windows 2000 I'm ripping my CDs, so I rip them using EAC. All the tag information is there (from freedb) except the album art. So I open up MediaMonkey, select all the tracks in the album, click [CTRL]-L to do Auto Tag from Amazon. I have only the album art and comments fields ticked. I sca...

I agree with trixmoto: I don't think rovingcowboy's comments make much sense at all. We're not talking about running on non-windows systems and removing all OS hooks, we're just talking about making it not so dependent on the registry. I'd expand the request to request that MM be able to "install" o...

no that is still not true random. true random would be the program picking all the equazions and not picking a repeat song until all are played in the playlist atleast once. it needs to be done with out any percentage thing because the suffle now seems to be running on a perctage and making both on...

Yup, I'm just trying to flush out in a bit more detail exactly what should be in a "better random/shuffle".

I'm not a MM developer, and I haven't used it enough to have a feel for whether or not random really "ain't random", but I can say the following about random processes. (And if you're a math-head, I'm sorry, I don't mean to insult you. I just can't tell from your post.) The thing about truly random ...

Request: Enhanced random

How about another couple of options that would influence the behavior of random track selection. 1. The option to prefer higher rated songs. I think the purpose of this is obvious. 2. The option to prefer more recently played / less recently played songs. Some people want to make sure they get a goo...

I think that sub-genres (genre geneology) is a mistake.

Genre is a real pain!( In general, not because of MM )

I've done a lot of thinking about this and I don't believe that sub-genres are the answer. I believe that *multiple* genres are the answer. The difference is subtle, but important. Suppose I've got tracks from Portishead and from Tricky. I want to tag them both as "Trip-Hop". Now, is Trip-Hop a sub-...
