The MediaMonkey player appears in 3 different guises, and can be switched using the Minimized/Restore controls in the upper-right corner:

  1. The standard player. This appears within the main panel and typically has the most functionality.
  2. The MiniPlayer. This smaller version of the player has reduced functionality and is optimally used for loading ready-made playlists.
  3. The MicroPlayer. This version of the player sits next to the system tray and offers only very basic functions for when playlists have already been loaded, or the Auto-DJ is set.

Note: to enable the MicroPlayer, you must Right-Click on the area next to the system tray, and enable Toolbars > MediaMonkey Player

Open Files

Some skins have an Open Files button on the player, to open Tracks that aren't contained within the library. This can also be done via File > Open URL or File . Doing so will not add the Tracks to the Library.

Shuffle Mode

Enabling Shuffle causes all of the Tracks in the 'Now Playing' queue to be played in random order. This can be enabled via the Player, or via the menu.

Continous Mode

Enabling Continuous mode, cause Tracks in the 'Now Playing' queue to play without end. This can be enabled via the Player, or via the menu.


Enabling the Auto-DJ causes tracks to Automatically be added to the Now Playing queue as it nears the end of the playlist.


Allows you to customize audio to suit your equipment and environment using a 10-band equalizer. Be sure to save your settings so that you can reload them in the future. This can be configured via the Player or via the menu.


If you wish to view psychedelic visual effects synchronized to the beat of the music, click the Visualization button on the Toolbar, or View > Visualization.
