No way to get it working.
I deinstalled MM, then re-installed as portable.

Although I had saved the database and put it to the same folder, where MM expected it to have - the whole process of reading all the stuff took another 3-4 Hours or more.

I'll give up and will just use it as a player and look for something else.

Thanks anyway for your help.

Something on your System as plugin uses Windows drivers and not MMW plugins.

Try to reinstall Sound Card Drivers from manufacturer.
Try to Install MMW as Portable and See.

I'm on Win 10 Pro x64 and MMW and it works for me

thank you taking the time.
I always start MMW as admin.
Unfortunately MMW freezes due to having the gen_quickplay.dll in the plugin folder.

When I remove it manually from the folder MM starts over again as normal.
Any thoughts?

Just test it and it still works, with one quirk. MMW Needs to be started as Admin or Installed as Portable due the UAC Windows policy :(

I'll see if I have time to make MMIP package.

To make it work follow this settings:
1. Download archive from http://mmfanbox.x10host.com/mmfanbox/quickplays.html
2. Extract "gen_quickplays.zip" <MMW install Folder>\Plugins
3. Start MMW
4. On first start Click CONFIG
5. Set Volume and right Playback Card (I setup mine to Default Direct sound)
6. Restart MMW
7. Setup Quick Keys to your need.

Hi Pavle et al,

first of all, hope you had (still have) a peaceful Christmas.
I am sorry to say that the plugin doesn't work anymore with the latest version 4 of MM Gold.

Kind regards

As a general user*, I would think that the proportion of users who are DJs is probably very small; well less than 1%, at a guess. Sadly, therefore, I would imagine the developers would give your request a very low priority, and concentrate their efforts on features that would benefit the vast majority of users.

So, realistically, I'd start looking at those workarounds...

* but someone involved in product development.

lots of dj's in here some time might be needed for them to see your post but you can check with peke he is one he has made some scripts for dj's to use he might have your issue already done?

Thank you for your good suggestion and explanation.
Might be a workaround for some time.

I only wonder - this category of the forum is (or I think it should be) a wishlist for future development of MediaMonkey (Gold, in this case I would assume).
Therefor the MM people should consider if they could accept such a suggestion or let their customers live with the current situation.
As I know that a lot of people (non-pros and semi-pros) use MM as a substitute for very expensive DJ apps - this should be ranking way above the lower end of the list to bind old customers and attract new ones.

Just a thought.

only thing you can do is set up your system to use mediamonkey in dual instances. and set all the jingles in one play now list and use the other mediamonkey to play the music with. you want to stop music and click on a jingle that way and it works.
but some issues might happen like having both mm's play the music list and you hear it twice at the same time like an echo, other stuff might happen too.

all round best way would be use vlc player set the jingles up in that. stop music in mm then click on jingle in vlc or other player. but make sure you have all the options in all the players that you use, set up to NOT take over the music files, otherwise every time you open a player it will grab the music files and say that it will control them.
that is known as the media player war's.

.. the Jingle Rotation is not exactly what I am looking for.
Pls read more carefully how the function should look like.

It's not automatically playing in a circle, it should come with dedicated buttons for each pre-loaded jingle.
So you are able to play a short "Happy Birthday" jingle twice/three times by pressing the adequate jinle button two/three times and an "Drummer" jingle after that, before that, 2x, 3x - as often as you press the right button(s). The current playlist is still playing in the background but with reduced volume.

Hope that makes the feature more understandable.
