Re: Not possible to search for the band "The The"

The quotes are used to limit the search to a specific value, this is useful for finding files with the wrong capitalization. How does a double quoted query help locate files with incorrect capitalisation? It doesn't seem to me that it is useful for that task. I think that very little of the "quotin...

Re: Not possible to search for the band "The The"

Unusual name I know, but typing "the the" in the search bar to find all songs by this band doesn't work. Maybe for good reason, but thought I'd point it out. a MM5 search using doubles quotes is case sensitive. ... ie. try "The The" Is probably a bug because it is not documented in their hover tool...

Re: YouTube Service

YouTube service is integral part of the application, it is not listed under Devices & Services. If it is an integral part of the application why is it listed in the Tools|Addons list? But I tried the same and can play the related video without problems. Can you try again? Could be temporary problem...

Re: Keeping MM5 and MM4 in sync

I'm comfortable now in updating MM5 from MM4 but what would I need to do in MM4 to reflect any changes I've made using MM5? What would you do in MM4? ... If you are only doing queries or reports ... ie. no updating ... then you may be able to open a copy of your MM5 database with MM4. I have not tr...

2283 - observations

I didn't notice Release Candidate 2 (version 2283) until today. It seemed to arrive silently by overwriting the previous release instead of creating its own thread entry. It looks very good. I have played with it for a couple of hours, and it has not let me down yet. I am still running the debug ver...

Digital River download link has not been updated for MM5

A purchase of MM5 licence obtains an email from Digital River
If you don't yet have MediaMonkey installed, you can download it here, and double-click to install:
http://www.mediamonkey.com/MediaMonkey_Setup.exe
That link downloads MM v4.1.30.1914

Re: MM5's What's New page

I actually thank the team of keeping documentation as documentation instead of making it marketing that the facts re hidden in. This condensed form is far easier to understand for documentation. Let them use marketing in announcements instead. I am just a Programmer, so no expert, but I don't think...

MM5's What's New page

I found MM5's What's New page today: it is very dull and boring it fails as a communication document ... disappointing given that the MM5 the result of 5+ years of solid effort it needs to focus on customer benefits, and have some sense of enthusiasm ... not just a plodding list of cryptic hints of ...

Re: clutter in Folders node? [#17314]

The Media Tree is essential for my use, without it MediaMonkey wouldn't be of much use to me. That is a cheap Straw man argument. Nobody is suggesting that it should be taken from you. the MM5 Media Tree has been deprecated by default for navigation ... ie. by default, all of the sub-nodes have bee...

Re: clutter in Folders node? [#17314]

Different users use MediaMonkey differently. This why many things in MediaMonkey can be done multiple ways. OK, then maybe one of these "different" users will post a list of whatever folder-like activities they wish to perform against Media Servers, because it is clear that neither your nor I can c...

Re: clutter in Folders node? [#17314]

Is there any Use Case for listing all the Media Servers in the Folders node? I cannot think of one. Folders follows File Explorer which also lists the Media Servers. Look at the Filer Explorer ... it is as MM5 should be ... separation, with no duplication: in the File Explorer the Tree is not pollu...

Re: Function to update database of MM5 from MM4

I use both MM4 and MM5. I like to keep my music database as master in MM4. The latest MM5 is described as "Release Candidate 1", so official release must be soon. If so, you still want this? ... why? ... because of missing add-on scripts? Even so, why would you want MM4 to be the master? Could you ...
