Re: How Do you sync MM with an iPod Classic without iTunes?

I don't have iTunes installed; I hated the monstrous, megalomaniacal, cpu-gobbling bloatware when I installed it to support an iPad2 I was given. I can get MM to talk to the iPad by installing AppleMobileDeviceSupport.msi I think... just checking processes running... yes, it's running, but sitting t...

Re: Ipod classic 6g flac to aac/alac fail

So it's either a on-the-fly transcoding problem, or it's a problem with compatibility with iPod player, vs iPad player. You'd lik...

On further reflection of how we select a player in MMW, it's not the windows audio driver API we need; it's the MMW audio output device API we need.... We don't select an audio driver, we...

Re: Where to find a manual?

It is a bit odd that a piece of software that's been going so long and is so popular still doesn't have a manual. I've found the wiki is out of date; maybe the difficulty of keeping a manual up to date is seen as the problem. But the basic operation hasn't changed. I have some notes I give to friend...

Re: Chromecast Audio for DEsktop App

It dawned on me that what is needed is a virtual hardware driver, linking Windows audio API to Chromecast API. So I googled for 'Chromecast audio windows driver' and found this discussion: https://www.reddit.com/r/Chromecast/comments/3un5hd/casting_all_audio_from_pc_to_chromecast_audio/ where there ...

Re: WDTV MP3 okay but No WAV

It may be an issue of the 'profile' that the WDTV is providing to the server, to tell the server what media it can support. If it is incorrectly saying it doesn't support WAV, the DLNA server shouldn't present WAV files to the client. Does it play FLACs? If so, I'd convert all your WAV to FLAC; unle...

Re: Jingle Player Function

As a general user*, I would think that the proportion of users who are DJs is probably very small; well less than 1%, at a guess. Sadly, therefore, I would imagine the developers would give your request a very low priority, and concentrate their efforts on features that would benefit the vast majori...

Auto-DJ for MMA

With a collection of 62k tracks, and an indecisive nature, MMW's Auto-DJ is the killer function. Having moved my collection to a NAS with a DLNA server, running a little Android media box on my TV, MMA seemed the obvious way to play my music. But it lacks the auto-DJ function (unless it's hiding som...

Re: Chromecast Audio for DEsktop App

Whilst the OP's need for wireless playing can already be met using UPnP/DLNA streaming to a small, cheap DLNA digital media renderer, Chromecast offers the promise of multi-room syncasting, which would be great. BubbleUPnP already supports Chromecast, and it works very well. But MMW is a better play...

Re: Streaming Media Monkey to mt older home stereo

You will be able to play music via your BluRay player by using the DLNA Digital Media Renderer (DMR) it contains. I assume you have used Tools/Options/Player/UPnP Player and selected your BlueRay as target. This works very well. So, what you need is a standalone DMR. This could be anything that has ...

Re: How do I use MM as a player over DLNA

Okay, scratch that. Just tried playing to UPnP Monkey on Android 4.2 tablet instead. It just advanced with no trouble... Trying UPnPlay DMR on Android 4.2 tablet... Aha. No skip to next... Looks like a problem with either UPnPlay. Shame, because it otherwise works very nicely, staying 'alive' even w...

Re: How to get MM Server running on XP SP3

Just to close the loop. I never got this working, and without further feedback, I gave up on it, and switched my attentions to debugging WD's MyCloud installation of Twonky, which I finally succeeded in doing (succinctly; it doesn't seem to like spaces in the shared folder names MyCloud insists on c...

Re: How do I use MM as a player over DLNA

In a similar vein, I've just tried to play to a UPnP device. The only change I made to my existing PC-based installation was: Tools/Options/Player/Choose Player/UPnP-DLNA Renderer select the DMR device When hit 'play', this did indeed play the track to the remote DMR. But, having played it, it then ...
