Risky behavior

Post by raharris » Mon Aug 23, 2010 7:12 pm

If one had some (mild->moderate proficiency) programming skills (with Paradox -> an Access like database from Corel)

and one wanted to see if it were possible to place their Vinyl Collection of albums and artists into MM, programatically

What would be the hook to the MediaMonkey databases to get read/write access?

Does it actually use the a SQL server or are all input/output done in MediaMonkey, natively?

Has anyone tried this (with other products) or this just absolutely asking for trouble?

(The fact that I have to ask these questions makes me think this is a bad idea...)

MediaMonkey uses a SQLite database. In itself programing this shouldn't be a problem as VirtualCD's use the same concept of archiving CD's without necessarily having the tracks on the PC.
