Just downloaded the MM5 alpha, still no Opus support. Not sure about the android player. It's easily the best sounding codec.

Opus is already supported in MM5 -


could be added opus encoder & decoder?

could be added opus encoder ?
it's the evolution of ogg vorbis

the great thing is that the decoding is very very low cpu consuming,that is really great playing opus music with a smartphone ,it really increases the life battery

would be great have included in mediamonkey for windows (the econder & decoder ) & android (decoder)

The lack of Opus codec support is the only thing preventing me from using MediaMonkey. It would be nice to at least know the status of its implementation, as the last mention of it was in August 2015.

Opus support is planned to be released quite soon, probably as a part of MM5.

Youtube now uses opus as its backing audio codec, so I'm a bit peeved that I can't play my Youtube artists.

transcodes, I'm not going to re-encode an already transcoded audio stream.

I just ran across this codec when someone sent me some files using opus. I immediately thought of Bloom County lol. Berkeley Breathed should get behind this since he's come out of retirement.

I was disappointed to find out that MM couldn't play the files and there was no plugin to add support. Most of the posts requesting support are from 2012. It seems like the developers have just ignored the requests :(

I recently started trying out mediamonkey and I'm gobsmacked that the app doesn't support opus. I'm able to encode to opus with the help of other music managers or via command line, but I can't even play them in mediamonkey. Opus is a royalty free codec and it's from the same stable as flac, so what's the problem?

I wish to add another vote for this request.

I've been using it for playing m4a(aac,alac) and opus.

But opus tagging is unsupported.

For the encoding, I think MM should support to use command line encoder.

This and BitTorrent support for podcast feeds would make me pay for another MM upgrade. Please implement these 2 :-) MM works great for my regular podcast feeds and an iPod Shuffle, but for OPUS & BitTorrent podcasts, I have to use Miro, which is pretty slow :-/

REQUEST: OPUS format support!!!

by The Hated » Mon Apr 08, 2013 9:19 pm

OPUS format is such a great format, better than mpo3 and aac, basically the best lossy format, its becoming quite poplar and media monkey doesnt support it ;/ iod love to encode my library in opus via media monkey but im stuck using foobar2000, could we have this implemented? been a mediamonkey user for years now, just a request here :D
