New Functionality

Post by Aksh » Sat Oct 29, 2016 9:59 am

I am sure most here use MMW to play music while working on their PC. While I am doing so and surfing the net as well, I inadvertently end up clicking a video link on a webpage which means that I have to restore MMW from the tray and pause the music. So, is it possible for the developers to add a functionality that when MMW is active and if other source of sound is activated, MM pauses itself until that sound source has ended playing?

Note that you can assign a hotkey to Play/Pause, click the tray icon to play/pause or Play/Pause from the Taskbar Preview (Windows 8/10).

I very much second this request.
I am working on my PC all day, and I have a squawk service running that will give important messages at irregular times.
It would be great if MM could pause itself as soon as some other audio channel gives a sound. It should be instantly, otherwise I have already missed the message: manually pausing is too slow to be an option.
(Right now, my only option is to have NO music :( )

Edit:
Ah, found a solution: mute.fm. See this other post: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... 49#p440949
