Setting MM5 portable as default for media files

I can't seem to make MM5 portable my default player for music files. I currently have MM4 set as default and I've tried going to an mp3 file in Explorer and right clicking: Open With>Choose Another App>More Apps>Look For Another App On This PC> Then navigating to my MM5 portable folder (C:\MediaMonk...

Re: MM5 has started syncing audiobooks and videos to my phone

Thanks, I think I found it - for some reason all my audiobooks and videos had been added to one of my music playlists that I normally sync to my phone. Don't know how that happened but seems to be OK now :)

MM5 has started syncing audiobooks and videos to my phone

Ever since clicking the following options (which was suggested to fix a different bug tonight): Manage Database>Optimize database Manage Database>Rebuild database MM5 is now syncing all my audiobooks and videos to my phone. Up until now I've only been using MM4 and that has always synced just my mus...

Re: Layout bug when searching in 'List (by album)' [17378]

This issue happens some times (not everywhere, not always) in "List (by album)" views that are not the output a search inquiry. A set of tracks in a list of various albums are mixed into the last album. When you change the order of one of these problematic views by sorting the Albums in inverse ord...

Re: Layout bug when searching in 'List (by album)'

I just tried it and selected both Optimize Database and Rebuild Database. Didn't make any difference to the search results, same as above.

Re: Layout bug when searching in 'List (by album)'

If I view him as Artist in List (By Album) mode I get the same incorrect layout: https://i.ibb.co/Wx492Wy/search.jpg But if I switch to browser View it correctly shows artwork for 2 different albums: https://i.ibb.co/sbJWbpy/search.jpg I'll take a look at Maintain Library although I don't see it in ...

Re: Layout bug when searching in 'List (by album)'

Latest RC2 build 5.0.0.2293 (Portable) and yes it reproduces in other searches. For example I search for 'Akira' and it shows 2 albums by Akira Yamaoka under the same album art when they should be 2 separate albums:

Layout bug when searching in 'List (by album)' [#17378]

One bug that I've seen numerous times over the last few days is that often when performing a search, the results displayed sometimes include a track as if it's part of a different album. For example I am using the 'List (By Album)' view and when I search for 'Rattlesnake' it includes the track 'Ratt...

Re: Configure an alternative file manager as an external tool

Agreed, I can just drag and drop into Audacity but I have certain situations when I'm working on projects where I need to access tracks directly in my file manager for various processes and it's just something I'd gotten used to with MM4. Not to worry, it's not a massive issue, just need to adapt my...

Re: Disable the collapse/expand function in List By Album view.

Found it - 'Show all album tracks' button in menu bar. Will try and search harder before posting next time ;)

Re: Configure an alternative file manager as an external tool

It was definitely that addon. Let's say I wanted to open a particular music track within XYPlorer (instead of Win Explorer) so I could copy it or edit it or do some other file management things. I could just right-click the track in MM4 and go to Tools>XYplorer and it would open up right in XYPlorer...

[SOLVED] Disable the collapse/expand function in List By Album view.

In MM4 there was an option to disable the collapse/expand button when using the 'Show artwork with details' view so that all album tracks were always visible. In MM5's equivalent ('List by album' view) it limits the number of tracks shown with a 'Show all xxx tracks/Collapse' button for every album....

Re: Configure an alternative file manager as an external tool

I had to go and check and I see that I was using the External Tools addon in MM4 which let me configure 3rd party apps: https://www.mediamonkey.com/addons/browse/item/externaltools/ I guess as it's an addon it's unlikely to make it to MM5 unless that author updates it. Shame as I can't stand using W...

Using Case Checker or Auto Organise to rename folders

I used Case Checker to rename an album title from: The Very Best of Japan to The Very Best Of Japan It worked but it only changed the album name within MM5, not the actual folder name in Win Explorer. So I tried running Tools>Auto-Organize Files and that didn't correct the folder name either (which ...

Configure an alternative file manager as an external tool

I use XYPlorer instead of Windows Explorer on my PC (a file manager similar to Total Commander etc) and in MM4 I configured it as an external tool so I could select files and locate them in that instead. Is there any way of doing similar in MM5, even if it's via a registry hack?
