Re: Media Tree problem

In my last post I forgot to mention that the MusikDownloads data (files) are included in the Entire Library collection, they just do not show up in the location node but I can find them in the Album etc nodes.

Re: Media Tree problem

Hi Lowlander
No, the Drive/folder does not show in Entire Collection>Location.
Moving the MusikDownloads folder into the MusikDB folder is the easy solutionbut for reasons of synchronization I do not want to do that. And I am intrigued as to why this is happening!

Media Tree problem

I run MM on a Desktop (Win 8.1) and a Laptop (Win 7). The media file structure for each is identical. The MM Collection criteria is the same for both. The tree for the "Music" collection on both computers show Location,Album, Artist, Composer, Genre, and Files to edit. The music files are located in...

Re: Sync between two Computers

I use MM on my desktop and also on a laptop (for use when away) and I treat my desktop as the master ie I make changes and add music to the desktop first. All the tagging etc is done on the desktop. Once a week I use Karin's Replicator (free - available here http://www.karenware.com/powertools/ptrep...

Re: Update Location of Files in Database 1.3 (2012-06-12) [M

Hi Zvezdan, My database is 220GB - 10500 files of mostly classical music and a very specific structure and lots of manually customized metadata. I was forced to migrate to a new hard drive and read the forums and really dreaded the migration. Eventually I took the plunge, downloaded your script, clo...

Re: Backing up?

I have used Karen's Replicator for a couple of years now. it's very fast and it's free and it has never let me down. It creates a mirror image only updating newer files and my 200GB /9600 file library takes just minutes to back-up. It's available here: http://www.karenware.com/powertools/ptreplicato...

Re: MM 4.0.7, WASAPI Equalizer Balance Slider

Apologies, just noticed that you are referring to the balance slider. The principle is the same, if you are changing the balance you are no longer getting the sound "as recorded" and therefor will not work in WASAPI.

Re: MM 4.0.7, WASAPI Equalizer Balance Slider

WASAPI gives you the sound exactly as it is in the file. Using an equalizer will change the sound which will defeat the purpose of WASAPI. This is also the reason why you lose control over volume as changing volume digitally amounts to changing the original file data. That is the theory anyway.

Any plan to add .webm as a file type? [#7353]

Are there any plans to add file type .web to MM? It is apparently an open source file format and is increasingly available as a choice on YouTube.

Re: Media Monkey Locks-up in Windows 8

Hi Lowlander I have had an exchange of e-mails with Trixmoto and he will be looking into it. It is an ActiveX issue as I reported in this thread: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=69136. It seems that I am the only one with this issue (no posts from other users) and as I am happy ...

Re: Media Monkey Locks-up in Windows 8

I have been running MM4 in Windows 8 for a month now and for me it is now running problem-free. I also had issues as I upgraded from Vista but I took the clean install advice from the MM Wiki, uninstalled, manually cleaned up all traces of MM and then re-installed. The only issue outstanding is that...

Re: ActiveX component cannot create object'SongsDB.SDBApplic

Just to update this thread. According to Microsoft scripting is working but they suggest that there could be a problem with the Backup Script itself. I quote their response: "Your scripting does work. You are just missing access to a certain interface/object of the MediaMonkey database. The reason f...

Re: ActiveX component cannot create object'SongsDB.SDBApplic

Hi Peke, According to Microsoft "scrrun.dll cannot be registered since Windows 7 anymore, the solution to register the file is not a solution anymore. Could it be that the Backup Script is not compatible with Windows 8? A search of the registry however shows that in C:\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VBScript.reg...
