What is MediaMonkey?
MediaMonkey is the media manager for serious collectors. It catalogs audio and video files, whether they’re located on a hard drive or network, dividing them into different ‘collections’ (e.g. contemporary, classical music, audiobooks, home movies, tv, videos, etc).
The program makes you click through a ton of pop-up windows — including several administration permission windows — while it’s installing. The program, itself, is worth the wait for most music fans, though. It has neat features like tabbed playlists and party mode that make it easy to play your music, however you want. In addition to collecting music already on your computer, MediaMonkey Standard will search for music on any connected drives. It supports most streaming radio, as well.
The program has an active community of coders and tinkerers behind it that have made lots of custom skins and tweaks you can add to the player. That’s handy because the program, itself, looks a little bland. There is a gold version that unlocks more goodies, a fact you’ll know with any usage of the player because it will constantly remind you that you can get it by paying or by completing special deals.

What’s new in MediaMonkey?
This build includes a couple of additional changes related to the migration from Freedb, along with fixes re IOS 14 support and a couple of other bug fixes.
Pros and Cons:
Exceptional cataloging options
You can organize music by over 40 different criteria, including common criteria such as title, artist, and album, as well as items like track volume, lyricist, and
parental rating. You can even use custom labels by which to organize and you can set how you want to prioritize the criteria. Media Monkey can also rename large
batches of files based on set rules.
Helps remove duplicates from the library
MediaMonkey can find duplicate files and songs, helping the user to remove any unnecessary items from the library.
Can pull metadata from the web
Works with almost any UPnP or DLNA enabled media player
MediaMonkey can stream the library to most UPnP or DLNA enabled devices. This allows you to, for example, stream to your Blu-Ray player.
Can convert audio and video files
MediaMonkey can convert all common audio formats and some video formats. Supported files include .mp3, .ogg, .aac, and .flac.
Supports most tagging formats
Powerful file renaming system
Advanced automatic auto-dj
MediaMonkey has a built-in auto-dj feature, appropriately called Party Mode, that can automatically play tracks based on set criteria.
MediaMonkey supports everything from lossy MP3 files to lossless FLAC files.
Has a decent companion Android app which can sync with / connect to PC server
Can build smart playlists with automatic filters
4+ stars jazz songs
Top played recent songs
Best rated classic rock
Unplayed recently added songs
Build your own “smart” radio station, etc.
CON Not really “multi-user” friendly
Example: If you have a family, not everyone has same tastes or star ratings. You CAN achieve a somewhat multi-user experience, but it’s overly complex and clunky.
Really buggy at times
Biggest annoyance: Often get database errors (data corruption?). Usually, you’ll end up clicking “cancel” in some dumb cryptic error prompt and/or restart app.
Android sync isn’t a breeze.
Multiple instances sometimes open up (due to unknown cause) can cause the corruption / database issues. You should backup often just in case.
Accuracy of automatically pulled meta data can be spotty
In cases where a song is a part of multiple albums, or there’s a re-release with slight changes (such as track numbers, bonus songs, etc.), MediaMonkey can get
confused and apply wrong titles to songs based on their track numbers. It then ends up mislabeling content that has already been labeled correctly. There’s also no way
to manually set what album to base the auto-tagging on in order to work around this.
