MediaMonkey 3.1.0

MediaMonkey is a music manager and jukebox for serious music collectors and iPod users. It catalogs your CDs, OGG, WMA, MPC, FLAC, APE, WAV and MP3 audio files. It offers an intelligent tag editor which looks up missing Album Art and track information via Freedb and the web, and an automated file and directory renamer to organize your music library.

It includes a CD ripper, CD/DVD Burner, and audio converter for saving music, and manual or automated playlist editors for creating music mixes. Its player automatically adjusts volume levels so that you don't have continually fiddle with the volume control and supports hundreds of Winamp plug-ins and visualizations; or if you prefer, it can use Winamp as the default player. It also includes portable audio device synchronization that allows you to quickly synch tracks and playlists with iPods and other portable audio devices.

mediamonkey is the best player for people who have large collections and want total control of it. The scripting engine basically makes anything possible and there's a large community providing just about anything you could ever need. You can also sync just about any device (or multiple devices) due to the wide array of devices it can support.

I tend to use tag and rename for tagging though as it's by far the fastest option.

Unfortunately it's only let down is appearance, as it's based on an early winamp engine, it's theming abilities are stuck in the dark ages. I REALLY wish the devs would address this issue as with some additional features such as transparency etc would make this the ultimate player.

People saying media player is better really have no clue what they are talking about to be honest. The feature comparison simply doesn't stack up. For a start you can't play FLAC in mediaplayer without a hack/botch and even then support isn't 100%.

Love this app. Although, I just use it to tag my mp3's. Nothing comes close to giving me the results I want.

BTW I tried both Tag & Rename and Mp3Tag and neither did what I needed for my entire collection. They may work fine for your collections, though.

Au contraire!

The Media Monkey is the BEST auto-tagging and music library management software there is, hands down. I may use WinAmp to play my music, but only the MediaMonkey is capable of keeping my library covered, tagged, regained, etc.

If you have a substantial collection, I can't recommend this enough.

free & good looking Windows Media Player 11 or 12 has these features.

No, no it doesn't. Windows Media Player FAILED miserably in updating and tagging my collection gathered since the release of mp3, hehe.

Now that MediaMonkey has cleaned up my entire collection (including duplicates, bad/corrupt/outdated tags, albums WMP has never even heard of, etc. etc.) WMP handles those files just fine.

But my collection gave it a monstrous headache before MM saved the day.

Agree 100%, but I do use WMP to play my music, but MM to sync with my Sansa.
