MM8 can play from DLNA servers, but can't play to DLNA clients.

If I purchased an MS Surface could I use this tablet with this app installed to play music from my NAS (Synology 115) on my LAN-connected Raspberry Pi? (With my PC turned off.)
IE could I select sth like 'play to external device'?

Thanks for the hint. Looks like it was the origin of the problem.

I opened the .m3u file with notepad and corrected the path. not only works on MediaMonkey as it also works on the default music app. Thanks a lot

Hi,

I am having some synch problems too. I have a desktop running W8.1 with MediaMonkey for desktop v4.1.5.1719. I do also have a windows RT tablet (surface gen1). on the surface I have the Mediamonkey app for W8.

I would like to import some playlists to my surface, but I cannot do so.

What I've tried was to use the export playlist command in the desktop application to export the playlists and files to the micro SD card, witch I use on the surface. On the Surface, I've configured the import library option to get files from the music and playlist folders on the SD card (where are the files that the desktop app synched).

The music files are imported to the music library on the Surface. But the Playlists do not get imported... is there a way to work around this without manually creating the playlists on the Mediamonkey Surface app?

Hi Guys,

Nice work, but still some issues.

Music files are on a Samba server. MM cut sometimes, as if the bandwidth was poor. But with other software no issue. I am on a 1 Gb/s link. Sign of cut : when the HD lights on strongly, as if MM was suddenly reading many data.

When trying to play a whole folder, MM crashes.

Finally, would it be possible to configure font size (small touch screen limited to 1024x768, hard to read). Same for the slide bar at the bottom ??

Thanks !

Hello

Although I can the Microsoft app page open in the browser but there is no possibility to download and at the store in windows 8 I can not find MediaMonkey 8, how do I get Media Monkey for windows 8 RT?

PS: Sorry, I've figured it out, I have this page always open with Firefox, when I then tried it with IE I was automatically routed to the store and the download.

Thank you. I'll get started then. :)

I believe it is fairly easy. The biggest stumbling block is Firewall/Security software blocking the Media Server access to the local network (in most cases Firewall software will ask permission which you need to grant).

Got it, thanks.

Is the UPnP setup in MMW easy enough to figure out by poking around if I've never done it before, or should I look for a how-to?

MM8 is not a a replacement for MMW. If you're just interested in playback MM8 alone will suffice, but it will lack many of the features of MMW when it comes to managing your media.

You can either use MM8 as standalone in which case it directly accesses the files or you can use it as a front-end for MMW in which case you use UPnP in MM8 to access the MMW Media Server. The latter is a more complicated setup, but has as benefit that you can track Play History centrally and share AutoPlaylists/Collections to refine what you see in MM8.

MM8 is a different product thus your Lifetime License doesn't cover anything for MM8 or MMA, it only covers MMW updates.


Hi! Not sure I clearly understand, so can I get the "letter-by-letter" version of that spelled out to me, please?

1. Is MM for Win8 (Metro) intended to be complementary to MM for Win7, like a nicer and touch-enabled browsing/playing front end? Or is it intended to be a replacement, with (now or in the future) all of the MM functionality we've come to know and love?

2. If it's intended to be a complement, I should run a single MM4 server somewhere on the network, and browse from MM8 clients... right? And of course there'd be no problem in using the MM8 client as well on the same machine as the MM4 server... right?

3. If it's intended to be a full replacement eventually, is there a general plan for how many months or years it'll take to develop all the functionality?

Thanks!

Couple of Questions

Post by rhs » Wed Oct 09, 2013 4:48 pm

Like the Metro interface.. if only it could be a direct replacement for xbox music and sync wirelessly with Windows Phones 8.

1 - If I am a Lifetime Gold Member does that apply to this version for wifi sync?

2 - Can a MM8 install sync with a MM4 Sync server on the same machine? So that I don't necessarily have to have 2 dbs? Prefer to have the MM4 be the primary.
- To be honest I am not sure I completely understand the concept of the Sync server.
