Faster MM Loading

Post by jpindy13 » Sun Aug 15, 2010 9:26 pm

I an a newbie and have searched the forum vault and couldnt find an answer but I am sure there is one. Here we go.....I have about 80gb of music and everytime I start media monkey I have to WAIT for the files to be loaded. Is there a setting on MM that as long as I dont add or subtract music and the files are the same it will automatically load without me selecting on the left hand side directory? And a way to autoload it quickly ? THx guys

Not sure what you mean.

MediaMonkey remembers what node you had selected in the ExplorerTree when you shut down and will show it again on startup. Also make sure you maintain a minimal Now Playing as this takes a long time to load as each file needs to be read (not the database).

Go to Tools / Options / Library / File Monitor and deselect the Start-up scan
If you add tracks without MM being open you will have to manually scan to add the files into your library

empty the now playing playlist when you exit mediamonkey so he don't reload that list.
just make a blank playlist and change to it when you close.

also on win xp get priority static control. program from and use it to set the priority of mediamonkey.exe to high or realtime. that program will make it stay at your wanted setting after the reboot of the computer,. just doing it by xp's task manager won't keep the setting it will revert after the reboot.

on windows 7 you can do that with the task manager and it will keep the setting after the reboot.

but running it in faster priority will give it more cpu cylcles to start faster.
