Re: Linking another database to MM

Path would be the unique identifier across different databases, Do you mean SongPath? That could change if I rename a song and auto-organize. Perhaps I wasn't clear enough that I want to link the songs together. So a song in MM can be linked to all that song's info I have stored in my database. how...

Linking another database to MM

I'm working on a project (C#) to get a lot of info about my songs. I'm going to access numerous databases (MusicBrainz, Echo Nest, Last.fm, etc.) and grab what info I can get (within reason). As an example, I might get genres/styles from all of them for later analysis when looking for similar artist...

Sync between formats, PC & Phone

I am finally getting a smartphone and want to put a good amount of music on it. My collection is all in FLAC, so it won't fit on the phone. I was wondering if there is some way to sync FLAC-on-the-PC to MP3-on-the-phone. Or is there a way of sync'ing two sets of songs in different formats. I could h...

Re: MonkeyMatch 0.5.56 - Find & Fix Similar Spelling (7/7/13

Bummer. You might be able to run the both the portable and non-portable MediaMonkey with both configured to use the same database, as long as the MediaMonkey versions are the same. Run the non-portable only when you need to use MonkeyMatch. Once you've cleaned up your database, the only time you'll ...

Re: MonkeyMatch 0.5.56 - Find & Fix Similar Spelling (7/7/13

I have been researching this error and found enough to add a comment and I just saw what you added to your post. And I say "that's it!" because that basically matches the info I found. All my research implies that the MediaMonkey on your system did not properly register the COM interface, which is a...

Re: MonkeyMatch 0.5.56 - Find & Fix Similar Spelling (7/7/13

I don't have a clue if monkeymatch even works that way though (if it searches ONLY for the DB file) :-? MonkeyMatch uses COM to access the MediaMonkey database, so it should work as long as MediaMonkey is running (and it will start MM if it's not running). It should not matter where the database is...

Hmm. I will have to load this onto a Google Drive and see what happens so I can figure out the error.

I use FooBar. It is *much* faster than MM.

Sync'ing ratings between work and home

I survive on autoplaylists based on rating and genre, "Classic Rock rated 3+ Stars" and similar. I have all my music at home, and on my PC at work, and rate songs in both locations. What recommendations do people have for sync'ing all the ratings between both locations? Note that I have too much mus...

Re: MonkeyMatch 0.5.56 - Find & Fix Similar Spelling (7/7/13

In other words, RTFM. :oops: No, not at all. I understand it's not the most intuitive program to use because I wanted to make changes with the least possible number of clicks or keystrokes. MonkeyMatch's UI is not standard at all, but it requires the absolute minimum number of clicks/keystrokes. Fo...

Re: MonkeyMatch 0.5.56 - Find & Fix Similar Spelling (7/7/13

I set the "preferred" entry of the two variants, i.e. making the field become green. That doesn't make any changes. Once you set the Preferred choice, double-click on any names that you want to change to the Preferred name. The name you double-clicked will be changed, it will turn red, and the Save...

Re: Font Size Main Window - Change?

Tools... Options... Skins... Font Size.

Don't make it too much bigger - another person had issues where it was too big to see the menus correctly, and he couldn't set it back to normal.

Re: MonkeyMatch 0.5.56 - Find & Fix Similar Spelling (7/7/13

Please give this version a try. It seems to fix both errors. I have to try out more, now. :D Excellent. That's good to hear. I cannot seem to Save Changes, since the button is inactive. I have about 240 match pairs for artists and wanted to save after changing only a few of them. Each Match Pair is...
