Media Monkey won't play my songs.

Post by MediaMonkeyOwns » Thu Jan 22, 2009 1:01 am

I have had this problem several times. I got a new computer a few weeks ago and decided to install my favorite music player on it, Media Monkey of course. When I got to mediamonkey.com I noticed there was a new version, I wasn't to thrilled. I downloaded it anyways and when I tryed to play my songs they just all greyed out and it kept going over all 300+ songs. I searched frantically to figure out how to fix it and I finally got it, but a few days ago I put Windows XP on my computer so I re downloaded MM and now it has the same greying out problem and I can't remember how to fix it. Could anyone please help me?

Well without any further information I can't really do anything but guess, so here's guess #1:

Try to upgrade Windows Media Player to the latest available version.

What file type isn't playing?

Do the files show up under Library > Files to Edit > Dead Links?

You need to give some more details.

Do the files show under the Library > Files to Edit > Dead Links node and if not what path is showing for the files? Can you play the files when you open them from Windows Explorer in MediaMonkey? What file type(s) fail to play?

Hello everybody!

I experience the same problem. Just that after I start Media Monkey playing songs works for some time ~40min - 60min. Then suddenly Media Monkey seems not to find my songs anymore. It stops playing the current song and when I click another song to play, it goes through the whole playlist graying out each one of them. It doesnt find the songs anymore even though they are on my hard drive and nothing changed. When I restart Media Monkey all the songs work again for another period of time.

When I select Locate Moved/Missing Tracks it finds the tracks as unmoved Tracks and when I click update nothing happens. It still doesnt work.

Any suggestions?

cheers,
Gernot

It sounds like possibly a hardware problem or that your soundcard settings somehow change automatically. You could try to reset the sound device used by the output plugin at Options > Output plugins.

Yes! It seems it was a hardware problem. I swiched to the analogue Audio output and it worked right away!
Before I had it set to the HDMI audio output. Thanks for your help!!

It was a audio setting. I would not have guessed. Thankyou!
