Re: Help with wireless streaming.

There seem to be a few of the device on eBay, if it worked well for you it is something you may want to consider. Otherwise I'm not certain how may audio only solutions exist as most modern stereos have DLNA capability and most are now video devices (that can do audio too). Thanks for your reply. A...

Help with wireless streaming.

I have for several years WiFi to connect my PC to my sound system using the LinkSys WMB54G music bridge. It worked great. Unfortunately, the music bridge has now quit working. My thoughts were so what. I'll just buy another one. Well, they don't make them anymore and also, they don't have a suitable...

OTS to MP3 converter.

Does anyone know of any software that will convert .ots files to .mp3 other than OTSLabs stuff?

Mobile Music

I have used MM for several years and love it. When I'm at home, I play all my music using MM. In the past, when I was away from home, I played CDs I had burned using MM. In the past, I had avoided MP3 players because of the headphones. I wear hearing aids and that just doesn't work. Recently, I disc...

MP3 player question.

Hi, I've been using MM for a few years and love it. :D My library has about 13,000 tracks and uses about 270GB of space (flac). I listen to my music using Autoplaylist that take advantage of the Genre and Rating tags. I now wish to purchase an MP3 player and play my music on it in the same way as I ...

MM 3 hangs when faulty CD is installed.

I am running MM on Win XP Pro. When I inserted a faulty CD, instead getting an error message that informs the CD is faulty and the directory cannot be read, MM 3 just goes into waiting for a response mode. The only way out of this mess is to physically open the CD drawer. I know, the blame can possi...

I ran the FLAC fixer and it corrupted many of my files. It looks like the files are still there and they are shown in the library. However, MM will not play the file. It just skips over it like it has zero length. I guess when I have time, I'll have to replace these files. :(

I really want to follow what you suggested as a very last resort. There would be a lot of new stuff to add again and a lot of it is vinyl that I had to manually enter the album information for. Luckily, I added this music to my library using .998 and it is OK. So, I would like to replace the failed ...

Trying to recover tracks from .996 corruption.

I have many tracks in the flac format that were damaged when I was using .996. I frequently back up my music library incrementally using Acronis. I have tracks that I backed up before they were damaged. I suspect that several of my tracks became damaged when I edited them to give them a rating while...

Keith, Changing the output plugin as you suggested for MM2 helped. I think much of my play problems are related to the flac files corrupted by 996.
Thanks for your help.

Along the same lines as this thread, I have MM2 Gold. A week or so ago I installed MM3 beta. Today I tried to convert a flac to mp3 with mm3. It presented the pop up about 30 days and buy the gold and did not do the conversion. Puzzling since there a gold for mm3 doesn't exist. I ran my mm2 gold and...

Thanks for your response. I'm still a little confused. When I installed MM3, it created a library. Is this the library for MM3 and is separate and distinct from the library that MM2 created. The songs themselves are all on an external hard drive. So, it seems anything I do with MM3 should really hav...

Keith, Thank you so very much for your help. I'm using both MM2 & MM3. The blanks are severe with MM2 (I'm using the direct plugin) and just every now and then with MM3. I haven't had time yet to work on some the the changes you suggested and it will probably be the first of next week before I have ...

Thanks for the information, suggestions and warnings. I guess I was just hoping for some magic pill. I have about 9,000 songs in my library. I ripped them all in the flac format. The only real problem I am having is when I'm playing my music sometimes intermittently I hear blank spots. The blank spo...

Is there a way to maximize MM's performance?

I would like to make sure that when I'm using MM, it's performance is maximized. I have MM's Processes priority set to high. Is there anything else I can do MM wise or system wise to ensure that MM's buffer sizes are adequate and it has the memory it needs and that paging is not an issue. I just wan...
