know of a "Song Previewer" addon or functionnality for MM5 ?

Post by Utestit »

Hi !

would anybody know of a "Song Previewer" addon or functionnality for MM5 ?

This used to exist for MM4 (https://www.mediamonkey.com/addons/brow ... previewer/), and was of great use to me , to get a fast review of a selected list of songs (allowing to listen, say to 10-15 secs of each Title, starting say, at 25% of the length, before skipping to the next Title).
note: with "autotag" selected, this also allowed to automatically add Lyrics or Artwork to a selected list of Titles.

If it doesn't exist, would be a great functionnality to "re-have" !

Many thanks !

nb: although the name is similar, this has nothing to do with the "Preview" window in MM5

[edit: a similar request was posted a while ago - although I'm unsure whether the "easy to port" suggestion is something I could do (as a simple MM5 user - Gold is that's of any use), or whether this was meant for developers. Many thanks !

sidenote: the request/usecase seems to come up regularly, over different posts over time:
https://mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic ... ew#p483021
https://mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic ... ew#p464138
...
but doesn't seem to have been implemented/developed as MM5 addon or functionnality (I hope to be wrong on this ! 8) )

I agree this would be a great addition and should be quite easy to implement..

Either by setting startTime/stopTime temporarily within the track object: https://www.mediamonkey.com/docs/api/cl ... _startTime
or rather better to use player seek: https://www.mediamonkey.com/docs/api/cl ... eekMSAsync

Great, thanks Ludek.

Maybe we'll see this in a subsequent release 8)

Should I log this somewhere for later reference/should someone implement it some day ?

Cheers !
