Don't know why you are getting this warning. When I upload the file to MediaFire, they scan for viruses, and when I download from Firefox it also scans for viruses, and I never got any warnings.

it would be really nice if the navigation can be also through letters (you type the first of the album/artist and then it appears - "prettypictures" uses the same technique)

Anyway,thank you very much,it's wonderful

Are you kidding? Did you read the first post of this thread? :o

Virus and keyboard logger are different. Not sure if MediaFire scans for keyboard logger.

I could not find a way to embed Python code within MediaMonkey
I strongly assume it's possible to build a automation server which you can launch with a auto script like:

Code: Select all

Sub OnStartup
    Set o = CreateObject("MonkeyFlowServer.MonkeyFlow")
    o.Init(SDB)
End Sub
This is how I launch my .NET extension, integrating it in the main window requires some Win32 experience I guess.

First, thank you for putting the time and effort into making our experience with Mediamonkey more interactive. One of the things I've always had my eye on with iTunes is the coverflow method of browsing and I was very pleased to discover that with the Beta2 release of Monkeyflow that experience has been realized. Very impressive.

Second, how do I go about compensating you for your efforts? This is an application that I would gladly pay for were it available commercially, so please allow me to send some money as a way of supporting you and encouraging future development.

What do you mean by "open"? It doesn't display the album art or it doesn't play the album when you hit Enter? Either way, the file format should have no effect on MonkeyFlow. As long as MM recognizes it, then it should work with MonkeyFlow.

I don't have any experience creating COM servers, but I know it is possible with Python. Considering your success with it, I will definitely take a look at it. Thanks for the tip!

MM3 monkey wrote:I'm not sure why but it sometimes leaves 'now playing mode' when it moves to the next song [i.e. the N box becomes un-lit and MonkeyFlow goes to the very first album]. If I click on the N again, it goes to the currently playing album... so it's not as if MonkeyFlow can't see the album or its cover.
I looked into this and I cannot tell why it would happen. Are you sure a key is not being pressed? Pressing the Home key will cause MonkeyFlow to jump to the first album, which sounds like what is happening with you.

I'm glad you enjoy the program, but I am not accepting any payment for it. I mostly work on this for fun and to challenge myself, and that is all the encouragement I need. Thanks for the offer though.

Great Program: Has problems with firewalls

Post by Great Program: Has problems with firewalls » Sun Aug 03, 2008 11:17 pm

Great program but it doesn't play well with firewalls because it sets up a temp install in new folder every time it runs. Thsi means that ot triggers the firewall no matter how it is set.

Any plans on making an installer?

Wow, looks great and works great... so far..... at the moment it is still caching covers and with over 7300 albums it is going to be pretty big. So far it has done just over 3000 covers and is over 300mb, I would really like to be able to move the cache directory to my doc folder, excuse my ignorance but how do we go about this? I tried adding the entries as instructed but it is still caching in temp dir. I added entry in MM Scripts.ini thus
[MonkeyFlow]
CacheDirectory = <C:\Bretts Documents\Media Monkey Backup\MonkeyFlowCache>
MaxCoverSize = <500/500>
Not working for me?
Would appreciate showing me the correct way to add the entry if this is wrong.
Thanks for the great little app, shows great promise

I have the same problem! I delete the cache directory and the log file ... change in the MM.ini file the coversize and the new cache directory, But now monkeyflow can't connect to MM.

here is my log:

Code: Select all

   NVIDIA Corporation
   GeForce 7800 GT/PCI/SSE2/3DNOW!
   2.1.2
** Load Time: 0.48 seconds
