Re: MediaMonkey 5 icon

I like them all from that selection, and have no strong preference. I would be happy with any of them. I do have concern re MM4 vs MM5 on the taskbar, if that is important. It has been relatively important during beta testing when MM5 was frequently crashing and causing Windows instability, but shou...

Re: MediaMonkey 5 icon

drakinite, I like your work and enthusiasm. The most frequent time that I see the MM icon is on the taskbar. I have the taskbar set to tiny icons, so it is only 16x16 probably. So there is not much for an artist to work with. Most important to me is that is a distinctive colour set, and be reasonabl...

Re: Trimmins silent Spaces On MP3's

another option is the dBpoweramp music ripper|converter

It handles single tracks, or whole directories, or collections. It has a rich library of DSP (or Digital Signal Processing) Effects, including silence removal.

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow? [#16718]

When you choose to import settings from previous version, then yes you will use this settings. When you need to start from scratch, do not import settings. EDIT: anyhow i've sent your suggestion about portable mode to other guys so we will discuss this internally OK, good ... just to be clear, the ...

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow? [#16718]

I've added code to always use MM5.DB even when different name is defined in INI file to be sure MM4 database isn't used in case INI file is not updated after data import. Doesn't this mean that if I person was already on MM5, with a standard db file name in custom db location, and then requested a ...

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow? [#16718]

Even in portable mode you can define custom DB location and when you've choosed to import settings from MM4, custom DB location was imported as well. The question in the dbox specifically asked whether I wanted to import my database from MM4, it didn't mention settings. ... although the dbox headin...

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow?

It will be fixed in next build. And what about the build after that one? I have just installed it (5.0.0.2259), and it has corrupted my MM4 database again. Petr, this is a really sad thing to witness. I am beyond words. Observations: 1. I installed MM5 in portable mode. ... What is the definition o...

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow?

It's beta software and comes with a warning to backup your files. The whole point of testing out the software is to find these types of bugs. Hi, I don't disagree. I am not complaining about the bug. Just the lack of response to suggestions and criticism. . eg. I asked multiple times, without answe...

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow?

in 2257 Custom MM4 DB file is not touched at all. MM5 creates new library in it default paths on import. It dosn't matter if MM5 is installed as portable or not. OK Peke, effectively you say "trust me". I do, but since you have burnt me three times now, I will backup my MM4 db before touching any M...

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow?

https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=16718 Thanks for the link. I hadn't seen Peke's latest post there. That report does not seem to address all issues. My major issue would be why the following is not constricting MM5 to its /portable sandbox? I don't see that addressed in the Mantis rep...

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow?

It will be fixed in next build. Petr, some feedback regarding your responses. Your minimalist responses make it difficult to have much confidence that you have understood what has been reported. Could you at least include a link to Mantis tracking of issues? I am sensitive to this issue because it ...

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow?

Ludek, you need to take this issue more seriously than you appear to be. You should consider pulling MM5 version 2256. I think that is damaging tester's MM4 databases, by upgrading them to 5.0.5x. I just installed MM5 again, and it did the same thing. This time I allowed the installer to start MM5, ...

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow?

I have a snapshot after the install, and before MM5 ever ran here ... remember I deselected the Run MM5 Now option in the installer At that point the ini was: [Portable] IsPortable=1 And then when i came back I opened MM5, using the shortcut shown in previous post. It offered to import settings and ...

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow?

MM5 shouldn't contain the DBName until you added it manually ? Tracked as https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=16718 I would have told you if I had altered the ini. No, I did not alter the ini. I installed MM5 into a new empty directory. I just ran the install program from Rusty's forum p...

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow?

My MM4 db has been upgraded to 5.0.51 for the 2nd time. ... ie. been corrupted The 1st time this happened, I didn't detect it for a couple of weeks, and presumed that I could have made some manual error during an experiment to determine compatibility between MM4 & MM5 dbs. This time I did nothing ot...
