MediaMonkey: Geek Software of the Week!
I used to really like Musicmatch. Then it got bigger, and “heavier” and finally started doing things that I just can’t stand, like showing ads, asking you to buy add-ons, etc. Yeesh! Then, I downloaded an update, and ever since it displayed an error every time my system was rebooted. I had had enough! So, I removed Musicmatch! But, then, I had to play my MP3s “one at a time.” Enter MediaMonkey!
Now, I can play albums, or collections of media again! And, MediaMonkey has assembled their free “jukebox-like” player using Open Source software bundled into their software! Cool!
“Manage a music library consisting of small to very large collections (50,000+ ) of audio files and playlists*, whether they’re located on your hard drive, CDs, or a network. Organize, browse, or search music by Genre, Artist, Year, Rating, etc., and never waste your time trying to find mp3s you know you have. MediaMonkey is the music organizer for the serious collector.
*Supports MP3, OGG, WMA, FLAC, MPC, WAV, CDA, M3U, PLS, etc.
Synchronize with iPods and other Portable Audio Devices in seconds. Simply configure MediaMonkey once, and then click the Synchronize button to synchronize tracks and related properties including Album Art, ratings, play history, and playlists with a broad range of portable devices. With Volume Leveling, the tracks will even play back on your device at consistent volumes!”
This is a GOOD ONE!
