Re: How to copy music from MediaMonkey to external hard drive

Select the songs, then right click.

Select 'send to' then 'copy' and select the directory in the drop down list.

Is that what you wanted?

Re: the $removeprefix command ain't working

Can you show us the syntax you are using.

If I use

D:\$removeprefix(<Artist>)\<Artist> - <Album> - <Track#> - <Title>

for Artist=The Enid, it makes:

D:\Enid\The Enid - The Spell - 05 - Elephants Never Die.mp3

from artist: "The Enid", and it works.

Are you doing the same or something different?

Right clicking on song in Explorer - MM options are missing

I recently upgraded to windows 10. In Explorer, right clicking an mp3 or playlist will give one options: 'open with' --> 'mediamonkey'. I used to get three options 'open with' --> 'play in mediamonkey', 'play next mediamonkey' and 'play last in mediamonkey'. In MM options, in OS integration, I have ...

Adding m3u playlist to end of now playing list

I used to be able to right click a m3u file in windows explorer to add a playlist to MM with a choice of adding to end of MM 'now playing' or play now or play next. Having upgraded to windows 10, this has disappeared.

How do I get this function back?

Playback dropping out for 1/4 second

Mediamonkey has the occasional gap in play back. It occurs in about 10% of songs (MP3) and the gap lasts a fraction of a second (less than a 1/4 second) but enough to be very annoying. It always happens in the same point of the file. The same MP3 files can be played in foobar or audacity with no pro...

Re: Playlist name transfers to album by mistake - how?!

Thanks for the advice. I looked under Infer File Properties and I had get Album Title and Track numbers from Playlists selected - I selected this a few weeks ago and forgot about it - I though I thought it would only change newly added files or blank fields, but I think this must be the issue so I'v...

Re: Songs not appearing in "Artist and Album Artist"

Are you perhaps looking for the Album sub-nodes? The "Artist & Album Artist" node only adds this sub-node when the artist is the album artist as well. The other tracks are accessible from the node for said artist. I am looking in the Album sub-node. I think I don't understand how to use album artis...

I have songs where: Artist = Richard Thompson Album Artist = <blank> 1. For treenode 'Artist', the songs do appear (correct) 2. For treenode 'Album artist', the songs do NOT appear (correct) 3. For treenode 'Artist and Album artist', the songs do NOT appear. (???) Is this behaving correctly? 1 & 2 s...

Artwork folder has 146,000 files

I have discovered an artwork folder that contain 146,000 jpgs, all album covers. I have 20,500 songs on Mediamonkey and don't use any other player (my kids use other players, but they only have a small number of songs). Are these needed for MM? If not, I can delete them. If they are used by MM, why ...

Where is my licence number gone to?

Mediamonkey used to display my license number (iirc). Now it displays:
License: Mediamonkey Gold: vK.M to mark
What does this mean? Why isn't my license displayed?

Background scripts

I'd like to write a script that runs in the background all the time (to monitor what is being played). Is this possible with VBscripts? Basically, it would collect information about what is playing and store this in the database. I can collect the info and store it, but not as a continuous backgroun...

Re: MM crashes when I play particular songs

I don't have Itunes at all on my PC. I tried the MP3pro plugin which still didn't play the track, but it did stop MM from crashing. It now hangs for 15 seconds then moves on to the next song. When installing the plugin, I had to install winamp, so I have now used this to convert the 'bad' MP3s to WA...

MM crashes when I play particular songs

MM crashes when I play particular songs - it crashes at the very start (ie: no music is played). To be exact; MM 'hangs' for 15 seconds then crashes. The error message doesn't show much: MediaMonkey - Audio Library has encountered a problem and needs to close. I used to play these songs with no erro...

Can autotag return several alternative results?

When I autotag from the web, MM gives only one result, which may be incorrect. Eg: I look up Sling It by Steve Harley and MM returns the Album "Live in the UK", which is wrong. The song is on multiple albums and I would like to search beyond the first result. Is there any way of doing this? I'm sure...
