Re: Composers and Conductors in Artist node

Hi Hugorx, I have a very limited number of Classical type files in my library. However, I tried to reproduce the issue you described based on a few Type=Classical MP3s by editing the album and including several colons in the Album field. I exited MMW4 and re-started to "re-scan" my files into the li...

Re: Manual playlists acting wonky

Hi JunieG,

Could you post a screen shot as it is not entirely clear whether you are referring to the "Now Playing" Playlist or the "Playlist" node.

Re: Composers and Conductors in Artist node

Hi Hurgorx, For my (fairly standard) installation of MMW4, Composer and Conductor appear under another node i.e. are sub-nodes. For example: Entire Library --->Artist --->Actor --->Composer Similar for Music and Classical Music top-level nodes. You seem to be suggesting that Conductor and Composer a...

Re: Questions about Playlist Creations and Deletions

MMW4 Playlists are independent of the MP3 files in the music library. However, you have the option - if MP3 file(s) are selected when viewing a Playlist - to do one of 3 things: 1). Remove from the Playlist ONLY 2). Remove from the Playlist and the MMW4 Library 3). Remove from the Playlist, Library ...

Re: Where can I find really good music online?

Something I meant to do a while back. Most of the resources from my Web Node in MMW4 roughly sorted. 7digital United Kingdom https://uk.7digital.com/ AllMusic.com http://www.allmusic.com Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/b?node=163856011&tag=songsdb-20 Audio Mack https://audiomack.com/ Beat Stars htt...

Re: RegExp Alternatives or workarounds?

Just continue to use MMW4 and RegExp for this sort of editing and use MMW5 for tasks you find that useful for. It is not that MMW4 add-ons are "not supported", my understanding is that they would need to be re-written. My personal approach is to use MMW4 and a "master" copy of my MP3 files on my D:\...

Re: Tagging Inconsistencies 4.0.1 (2014-02-27)

Hi Trecker, I do not think so. See https://www.mediamonkey.com/addons/browse/item/tagging-inconsistencies/ and click on version history / details. The approach I have used is to have a MMW4 copy of my files (D:\...\Music\...) and run various add-ons (including Tagging Inconsistencies, Lyricator, etc...

Re: Scan for updated media files

Hi Richard, If you have a PC and can install MMW4 or MMW5 AND if you can connect the tablet to the PC then you will be able to sync over USB. Once you have sync'd using USB then if you have WiFi on both the PC and tablet, you can follow up with subsequent sync using WiFi. Then you can start to expan...

Re: Scan for updated media files

Hi Richard, how did you add the songs.

You really need to synchronise the device from a PC running MMW4 or MMW5.

Re: My MM4 Syncing Experience

Good to see that you have resolved your MMW4 sync issues and have a working system. Like you I have found WiFi synching has come and gone a few times. Several of the recent threads have helped me restore my MMW5 WiFi synching but not certain I can explain exactly what has happened! Please think abou...

Re: Crash during playback

The image has not come thru on the forum. One of your other posts indicates you are using 2516 of MMW5. You may want to try a different way to share the image of the crash error. For example, upload to a cloud service and share a link. I would suggest that you install DeBugView and install the Debug...

Re: How to create a separate MM library? (or how best to accomplish what I need to do)

Let's first make the distinction between: 1). the Database containing the "information" about the "lost" audio files, AND 2). the library of those MP3 files - both lost and recovered. I think I would do something like the following: 1). Make a backup copy of the old MM5 database as per Barry's sugge...

Switching Between USB and WiFi Sync of a Device

OK so I got one of my devices fully sync'd up using MMW5 2516 and USB. Then I switched to WiFI sync. I use Playlists to sync (972 of them = ~16,000 MP3s). I always wait for MMA to "catch-up" from one sync before doing another (i.e. after wheel / circle in top right has stopped and disappeared). This...

Re: Playlisten zwischen MMW austauschen

This is one way to handle: On MMW4 install the Export / Import Playlists for Child Nodes provided by Zvezdan. http://solair.eunet.rs/~zvezdand/ExportM3UsForSubNodesNew.htm Set the "replace option" to Replace Mydrive:\Music\ with HerDrive:\Music\ and probably choose the Relative option. The Options d...
