MediaMonkey v3.2.4.1304

MM is truly excellent at playing back every file format (mine library is mostly MP4/MP3/FLAC-APE) with support for many addons to increase the already impressive functionality available - its so simple Ive stuck with them for years! For my own CDs I rip using EAC in FLAC format (perfect quality) and manage music using MM. If you rip CDs with MM you can use Auto-Tag from web (ALT+L) to automatically name your tracks with covers & information.

I love listening to my music library (cheap £500 10TB microserver) on continuous shuffle when Im back from a hard days work, it manages huge libraries effortless and plays music back instantly. My existing playlist is currently 6000-songs strong and counting.

FYI I use MM Gold. Tip for iPods, etc, you can configure non-compatible formats on the fly but make sure you manually choose stereo (Options> Portable/Audio Devices) as otherwise it will default to the lesser joint-stereo - worth sticking to 320kbps mp3 for connecting to car systems.
I make sure MM uses my SB Audigy soundcard for hardware acceleration and its crystal clear with no stuttering, even on 4500kbps 24bit/192KHz FLACs.

MediaMonkey v3.0.3.1183

Other thing I like about MM is you can pick and choose and send to player directly. No syncing.

MediaMonkey v2.5.5.998

Easy to use, and does a great job managing my music library. I wanted a simple software which would allow me to set up a party music library, and Media Monkey is simple to use, and does a great job. A must have.

MediaMonkey v2.5.5.996

Media Monkey rules, most players canít handle big libraries and even if they can it takes forever for them to build a library list. I have a MP3/WMA Lossless library of over 300MBís and all but 60MBís is low quality MP3ís (ripped at 128 to 192) so there are tens of thousands of songs. Media Monkey had no problem what so ever with this and built a library list within about a half hour. One of the popular players Quintessential took most of the day to build a list.

Not only does it handle big play lists but also has a very good normalizing function so that you donít have to be blown out of your seat one second and then putting in your hearing aid to hear the next song.

The skins that come with it are very nice but of course you can add to that if you wish.

Another nice feature is that you can add and manage your plugins easily so that you donít get stuck with a bad plugin or can change on the fly if so deemed.

Iím amazed at how many poor players exist and how few goods ones there are, this player rates 5 out of 5 in my opinion and Iíve played with quite a few.

MediaMonkey v2.5.5.994 RC7

In my opinion I would classify MediaMonkey as "Freeware" not "Shareware". Yes, there is an upgradeable version to a Gold version that will allow a user to convert from virtually any sound format to mp3 <-- Gold version's best feature (free version will only do that for a 30 day trial - but there's other freeware ways to get around that... see below) The free version also doesn't have "upgrade me" spyware. I believe it's a wonderful program that certainly is a much better alternative to anything that Real Player has put out. Like Real Player this player can create playlists (you can name name them whatever just like Real ... for example my heavy metal playlist is called "Harbinger of Night" - props to MTG: Battlegrounds) With MediaMonkey and the help of some easy to install Winamp and Real Alternative plugins you can play just damn near ANY sound format. You can even play different video format with help from plugins. It also plays video with the help of plugins. Here is a quote from their FAQ on their website:

If MediaMonkey is Freeware then why isn't MP3 encoding unlimited?

The philosophy behind MediaMonkey is to ensure that the Free version has all of the functionality that would be required by the average user (see: <a href="http://www.mediamonkey.com/product.htm" class="korostus" target="_blank">http://www.mediamonkey.com/product.htm</a> ), and that satisfied users or more advanced users will upgrade to the Gold version that adds more advanced functionality. The one glaring exception to this philosophy is that MP3 encoding expires after 30 days in the free version.

Unfortunately, to legally distribute MP3 encoding functionality, per-user fees must be paid to Thomson for each MP3 encoder shipped, and in the absence of such fees, encoding must be limited to 30 days. In order to ensure MediaMonkey's long term viability, it was necessary to comply with these licensing regulations.

Fortunately, the free LAME MP3 encoder is available in a variety of locations on the internet, and users can switch to the standard version of LAME if they wish to avoid upgrading to the Gold version of MediaMonkey.
