MediaMonkey Comments

Any good themes/skins?

Comment by lifewulf
about MediaMonkey Feb 2016

I love MediaMonkey, and bought Gold, but one thing I hate about it is the interface. I can find no good themes, and disabling skinning makes it worse! I just want something with the beautiful simplicity of Foobar2000 while keeping all of the power of MediaMonkey.

Also, it randomly crashes when switching between virtual desktops in Windows 10, so that's fun. It's not consistent, but that's what triggers the crash.


MediaMonkey is glorious

Have been using it for years, and don't intend to change that. I only wish they'd release updates to support new iOS versions quicker :D

There isn't any software that is a *true* alternative to MediaMonkey

Positive Comment by buhyabum
about MediaMonkey Oct 2012

I've been using it for years, even after I made the switch back to Mac. I paid for and run Parallels Desktop so that I can run two things that are only available in Windows but are irreplaceable and necessary. One of them is MediaMonkey. The Gold license is well worth it.


Best media player

Positive Comment by wonea
about MediaMonkey Aug 2012

I tried out the free edition for a couple of days, then jumped to the Gold edition. Works perfectly with my music collection, and transcodes any format I can think of when either syncing my phone or playing music via DNLA to my playstation 3. Fully recommended, updated frequently, and well worth the money.

about MediaMonkey Jun 2011

After years of trying to find a good alternative to iTunes, i finally made the switch to MediaMonkey. This was mainly thanks to the new sleek UI and new features implemented with MM4 (currently still in beta).

MediaMonkey is fast and intuitive (fast enough to be used as a player, not just as a manager), handles pretty much any music format and is also now good for managing videos. It is the most feature rich and compatible music manager I have seen.

Also it is backed by a reputable company, new versions are released at a rapid pace, and the developers frequently visit the forums and respond to bug reports and feature wishes.

Comment by ashecorven
about MediaMonkey Jun 2011

Best of the bunch. I used Winamp for years until revolutionised players came out, and then used Foobar2000, iTunes, Songbird, aTunes (2nd best to MM by far!), and even WMP.

Perfect for large collections, incredibly quick even if it's not organised properly like my friends and still better than any other for small or medium collections. Easy to edit tags, quick to learn how to use, great browser like back/forward view on what you were just looking at, quick search, easy to tag, backup and restore databases, monitor folders so you don't have to add the new music programme (once you set it to monitor your root Music folder - which is now available in the free version I see. Better iPod configuration than iTunes! Follow the wiki to get it setup correctly first.

Fantastic following that have produced many wikis on various topics. New scrobbling plugin works flawlessly!

This is one of the four programmes that i've bought in the last 10 years along with Tag&Rename, Oops!Backup and Actual Multiple Monitors.

about MediaMonkey Jun 2011

My Windows audio player of choice. This thing does everything you'd want, and it's wrapped up in a very customizable and clean user interface. I wanted a complete music manager and was fed up with iTunes (slow, uncustomizable, lack of features) and MediaMonkey won me over. Songbird's UI, stability, and speed are all inferior to MediaMonkey.

This is the best music files management software I have used. Like many others, I tried mediamonkey after being frustrated with the itunes bloatware. It does everything I need to manage my ipod without having to continuously update and run itunes and various other things Apple foists on you along with itunes.

I see MediaMonkey less as a music player or cd ripper, but as a music library manager.
MM is the best allround tool to manage your music library. The organizing and tagging feature is really powerful and easy to understand.

I'm not sure why there are so many "Likes" here. I don't think people realize that you're not making an exact copy of a CD with MediaMonkey. This is the reason I love EAC so much.
