General

Do I need MediaMonkey Gold to get podcasts?

No. All podcast features are included in the Standard version.

Does MediaMonkey support video podcasts?

No. At this time only audio podcast episodes are supported. MM can neither download or play non-audio episodes.

Is podcast support available with MM2?

No. This is a new function with MM3.

Is more information available?

Yes. See the main Podcasting article or search the MM knowledge base for "podcast" articles. The MediaMonkey support forum is also a great place for specific help if needed.

Player

Does MediaMonkey remember the point at which I was playing a podcast episode?

Yes. MM let's you pause and later resume podcasts and audio books.

Subscriptions

Can I import subscriptions from another podcast client such as iTunes?

Yes. See How to migrate Podcasts into MediaMonkey

Can I automatically subscribe all my imported subscriptions?

No. Subscriptions must be individually subscribed from either the imported OPML podcast directory or from the Edit Subscription.

Can I remove undownloaded episodes from a subcription?

No.

Can I mark an episode as played?

Maybe. MM does not include this function, but, add-on scripts are available. Awnser will be updated after scripts tested with MM3.

What are the gray subscriptions?

These are subscriptions which are not currently updated. They are also called "dead" subscriptions.

What causes dead subscriptions?

1. Unsubscribe a feed and keep episodes.
2. Import podcast episodes that do not match existing subscription.
3. Change in podcast name by feed publisher.

How can I remove a dead subscription?

Unsubscribe the subscription and delete all episodes.

How can I revive a dead subscription?

Edit the subscription and enter the feed's URL.
