Re: Hate MM v. 5 on first day!

[ My overall opinion is that MM5 does take quite a bit of effort to come to grips with, but it is worth the effort. And I know of nothing else out that there which is even close to being this good ... and that includes MM4. Sorry, Barry, maybe you should try a few more. MM5 doesn't even come close t...

Re: 5.0.1.2402 Beta won't run [#17812]

2401 and 2401 will not run on my bog standard Windows 10 setup. In fact, trying to install them leaves behind junk that prevents the re-installation of 2338 which does run. I have to manually hunt down and remove the components your failed version leaves behind. Aren't you guys supposed to be softwa...

Re: Google Home Mini No Longer on Cast To Device List

From the earliest alpha through all the betas and now into the first release, MM5 has inconsistently found my Chromecast devices (it's not finding them now). Only MM5 has this problem (though MM4 didn't even try, of course); all the other programs I have that cast have no difficulty finding these Ch...

Re: Problem with MMA Classical Music Composers

Is there anything different about the composers that show up as "Unknown"? Do any/all of the composers who are "Unknown" also appear under their name in MMA? Thanks for your response - I store a portion of my music library on a microSD card on the device. I have the full music library on my laptop. ...

Your analogy doesn't make sense. Apple doesn't upgrade hardware for free but they do upgrade software for free.
Unless your hardware doesn't support the upgrade - often the case - and then you have to buy a whole new iPhone to get the upgrade - clever of Apple, eh?

Re: Removing "The" from Album name when auto-organizing

One of MMAs main competitors, Poweramp, ignores "The", as should any properly functioning program.

Another Problem with Classical Composers

In the Classical Music section on MMA, one of the options is to have the list of composers displayed. I don't seem to have the problem that brucek123 does, but another one. When the user selects a composer, MMA then displays albums on which that composer is represented. For some of these that compos...

Re: Track name

Have you checked whether your car radio has an app that can be used to organize files? Kenwood has one because I use it and I believe that others do too.

Re: Messed up my library with Auto Organise

Do you mean you have over-written the album name in the properties for each track or just that you have obliterated the folders which were the album name? The latter is fairly easily recoverable.

Re: Although successfully uploaded to Recently Added music doesn't show up in Now Playing list.

I am not sure what you are doing, but you have to add the files to Now Playing after they have been scanned. And add just the files you want to play, of course.

Google Chromecast Audio

One of the points you make in what's better about MM5 is that it will play to Chromecast devices. But as a rather long list of messages here would indicate, this often isn't so. And it's not so in my case. A video chromecast does show up in the list of cast devices, not any of the three audio chrome...

Re: GETTING CD INFO

Why can't I use another (or a few) cd info databases? I only have the option to use freedb, which can be spotty (and yes, these are commercial releases that iTunes has no problem identifying). W dbpoweramp offers a choice of metadata from various providers for each cd (assuming the provider actuall...

Re: Transfer from YTMusic

I believe your purchased music on Google Play remains on the cloud unless you specifically download it. Here is a Google explanation of downloading - it isn't recent and so may not apply to the end of GPM, but may give you some help: https://support.google.com/googleplaymusic/answer/1250232 In short...

Re: Sorting by disc number?

I'm using it to keep a box set sorted in order. So most albums in the box set will be a single disc, some may be two or three discs. Each album will have it's own name, cover art, album artist, etc. In iTunes when I do that, and create a playlist which I sort only by disc# then track#, I get a play...
