About MediaMonkey for Win 8 / RT

Postby rusty » Mon Dec 24, 2012 1:21 am

This version of MediaMonkey will help you navigate and manage large music collections on Windows 8 / RT tablets (in the 'metro' environment). When combined with MediaMonkey for Windows running a Sync server, it provides a single integrated view of your media collection.

Key features in the initial release:
Manage Music, Audiobooks, Podcasts, and Videos.
Navigate by Artist, Album, Genre, Playlist.
Play mp3, m4a, ogg, flac, wma etc. with volume leveling and equalizer.
Edit tags & playlists.
Play and download content via UPnP/DLNA.
Sync tracks, metadata, play history, & bookmarks over Wi-Fi with MediaMonkey for Windows (requires MediaMonkey 4.1 from the Beta forum).

I'm using W8 (on this box) and have made metro squares for the start page on my desktop PC w/o "touch"....for mobile I use android.

Once past the start page, W8 is W7 without a start button. But there are many freebie start button replacements. Right now I'm checking out demo of Stardock's (stardock.com) version, which costs $5, but there are lots of free options (if you don't mind the anchored apps you don't want and can't get rid of...like on a Verizon phone<G>)

It seems a "I would like it if it would..." version of the original.

But MM 4.0.7 still runs from the desktop, i.e the "w7" interface even after you click the tile on the W8 start page.

separate...

W8 comes wirthout a DVD player, MM can do this job? (I v. seldom play DVDs so I wouldn't have noticed one way or the other<LOL>)

Hi,
I can't find the app in the store ?
The only thing i have found is a link : http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us ... nkey/....a long string...
Once this page is loaded i should be able to click on : View in Windows Store, but the button doesn't do anything ?

Howto retrieve/install this app ?

Thanks,
Guy

I just found the solution : don't try the app link from within google chrome, it doesn't work.
You have to use Internet Explorer. ?!
Then it works ...

Thanks anyway Rusty

How do you add music folders?
I don't see that panel on the right side.

I just want to note that I love that you all did this version! The included Xbox Music app is buggy and slow. Loving having MM in Metro. I am a long time desktop user and Gold member. Great stuff, and keep it up!!! :D :D :D

Hi,

Would it be possible to add an album artist view instead of just having the "artist" view ?
Album artist is way better for albums with a lot of featuring.

That would be really nice !

Regards,
Benoit

Regarding Album Artist: I agree. That would be a nice feature.

MediaMonkey for Metro has no scrobbler Addon support. The available Addon is for MediaMonkey for Windows.

Is it possible to implement a filter/sort function by BPM tag? Like as Genre, Year and so on...
