Dear MediaMonkey developers,
To be honest, this is my first ever thread on the internet. I don't usually do this, but since music is my passion and organizing it is one of my priorities, I thought sharing my issues and comments with you would be helpful to you and also to me.
I used to be an iTunes user, the main reason I changed is because it does not support codecs such as FLAC. Besides that, I was very happy with it but I must admit that I know prefer MM to Itunes for several reasons which is not the main purpose of this thread to talk about.
To cut to the chase, Here-below are the major Issues I'm facing with MM and that I really wish you would take into consideration to improve the program (I apologize in advance for the lenght of my post) :
1 - Now playing and Shuffle issue : From what I understood, you either need to put the tracks (from ''Music'' or a Playlist) to Now Playing in order to play the tracks
or Enable Auto-DJ. First of all, Why can't it shuffle from music rather than now playing ? Wouldn't it be easier? Second, as soon as I
hit Stop then Play it repeats the ''Now Playing'' Playlist rather than just continue shuffling. If there is a way to fix this by myself ?
please let me know.
2 - Playing only what is typed in the Search box : I rarely create playlists, back in iTunes, I used to type the genre in the search box, and Itunes would play only
what I searched for. If, for example, I type in search box ''Deep House'', it would play me only the files that It found
containing the word ''Deep House''. It would be very useful having that in MM.
3 - Disc : # of # - Track # of # : As a music collector, this is a major issue for me. When I listen to a track, I always want to to know whether it was from a Album or an
EP, is it a Disc or a Double Disc, etc... On MM, I can know what track number/disc is the track on, but we can't know the total track
number / disc (Even if the solution of that would be putting a ''/'', it would be faster to fill the ''of [#]''
4 - Name of Track/Artist in Internet radio : Not so long ago, I realized that MM does not display specific information when It comes to streaming. To be honest, I still
use iTunes for internet radio because it shows me the artist and the track name that is currently playing..I hope to see that
soon on MM.
Last but not least, I would like to thank you for this wonderful program that I am really attached to
(And this is why I thought sharing my thoughts with you).
Again, thank you for letting me know if one of the issues above can be fixed.
