And the stupid Media 11 but DRM on the tracks and MM cannot level those files I have heard there are tools to remove DRM (a hacker trick, sort of). Perhaps you could try to find such a tool. Never used it myself, don't know if it works well. Don't forget to backup wma files before trying any of suc...

Re: Access Violation... MediaMonkey stopped Working!!! Help!

I would try to locate this file with the Windows Explorer and rename it to some short simple name.
If that doesn't help I would move this file somewhere so that Monkey doesn't see it when scanning the folders. Might be some corrupt tag issue.

Which version of MM your are using - MM2.5.x or MM 3.0 ? Did you get the latest plugin from official wavpack site? Here I have MM2.5.5 and it works alright with wavpack plugin. Only problem I had was that this plugin cannot read Unicode filenames, but MM doesn't crash. Sorry I cannot help much with ...

Re: Can I convert WMA Files to APE or FLAC files?

APE and FLAC are both lossless formats, meaning that one can convert between them or uncompress them back to WAV and the audio data always stays exactly the same as original WAV. There is also a special "WMA Lossless" codec which is similar to APE and FLAC. BUT: I am almost sure that your WMA are no...

Re: Reencode and file size

I did the re-encode with Flac 1.1.4 and this solved my issues. Also all files as far as I can see now were smaller. Again, sorry for re-iterating what I already wrote above, but this is just to make it totally clear: * comparing file size of the re-encoded FLACs is irrelevant to the problem. * one ...

3. Some people have mentioned that using MediaMonkey to re-encode their files resulted in a new file of smaller size than the original and theorized that some data was lost in the re-encoding process. I have used DBPOWERAMP software version 11.5 using FLAC 1.1.2 codecs (this is the pre version 12 w...

Re: Level Track Volume

to use the "level track volume" option under tools. Can anyone give me a good reason why I shouldn't do this? The quality of the resulting mp3s will not be any worse, but there are a few things to consider: * MM2 currently supports only song-leveling, not album-leveling which some people prefer. (a...

- you can make the random selection on ANY folder, not just your complete collection - you can easily change the order these songs will be played in, since Mr. Random creates a playlist along with the files, which you can edit in its GUI I think it should be possible to do with AutoPlaylists. Just ...

(Edit: Big_Berny was quicker...) It says that it doesn t loose any quality, but I really can heare the difference. If you want I can send you a probe. Of course it makes it sound different - it changes the loudness level of a track. That's the purpose of leveling. Do your songs become less loud or m...

I've got a feeling that this "first try" is pretty much as far as I can get.
But thanks anyways!

It is very simple: 99% default theme + modified colors a little bit + a bit bolder and larger font. Looks good on my laptop screen resolution 1400x1050.

Re: Hmm...

I was just wondering if there was more to it - i.e. if there was a characteristic look to the waveform in this particular case of FLAC file truncation, that's all. - Tim Ah, alright. Then you should look at the waveforms of two consecutive FLAC tracks. Normally you should see the last sample of one...

My MM2.5.5 has its ini file in the folder together with the program itself, and database in a different folder of my choice.

But it still always creates this m3u file in My music.

/Edit: I'm not complaining, it is just for information.

Re: Hmm...

How can you tell if a FLAC has lost it's gapless-ness, by listening, or looking at a graph of the waveform? Well, when a bit of audio is chopped off from the file it is by definition not gapless. Take a CD which you know should have some tracks with continuous music playing without a pause between ...

By the way, if you still have the original wrongly-encoded flacs, it could make sense to keep them for a while.
Maybe someone can program a tool to recover such flacs. It might be possible to guess correct values of the header of the first frame to reconstruct it.
