Editors' review

MediaMonkey Standard offers plenty of ways to enjoy your favorite tunes, but its default layout isn't very easy on the eyes. Luckily, you can customize that and just about every other inch of this powerful music player. That, combined with the built-in streaming radio and other nifty features, make it one of the best free media players on the market.

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.

Don't be bothered by the program's mediocre layout -- it's housing one of the best media players we've tried and you can easily change the looks to suit your preferences.

    "Very Useful for Music"

    April 26, 2014   |   By Red_Kangaroo

    Version: MediaMonkey Standard 4.1.0.1692

    Pros

    Easy to use. Finds all my music scattered across several hard drives. Can do the same for video, but I prefer VLC.

    Cons

    It crashes far too often; sometimes even when just starting.

    Summary

    I would recommend this for casual music players who do not want too many high powered features.

    Updated on Apr 26, 2014

    It's truly fantastic feature is to find all media across many drives. Then catalogs them automatically so you can ask it to play by artist, genre (dozens inbuilt and you can add more), location on hd,etc. etc. This feature alone has saved me many hours. This feature is remarkable; worth its weight in gold.

    "Ok, If You Want To Pay!"

    April 07, 2014   |   By DontWannaKnow

    Version: MediaMonkey Standard 4.1.0.1692

    Pros

    This has a nice GUI. It doesn't seem to have any major bugs. Not a major learning curve compared to some. The sound is pretty good. Has alot of configuration options.

    Cons

    It's slow and resource hungry. You have to pay to get options better freeware has natively. Really can't compare it's sonic ally to Jriver, Foobar, MusicBee, Winamp etc... Ads, Ads, Ads to upgrade and when you do upgrade you finally get a fully functional player. Only good if you pay!

    Summary

    I gave this a fair shot and really can't see why anybody would choose this over so many truly free player/organizers out there. It just doesn't seem to justify it's price...IMHO. Listen to it and then listen to say WMP. Does the Price justify itself? Not hardly!! To each their own, but I wouldn't own this. Just my 2 cents.

    "Happy Lifetime Gold Member"

    February 20, 2014   |   By mosteve

    Version: MediaMonkey Standard 4.0.3.1476

    Pros

    Easy to use, covers most file formats, converts on the fly (Gold), will sync with 4th Gen Ipod.

    Cons

    Had to have iTunes installed to be able to sync with iPod. I don't even like having iTunes on my computer, but not having to use it is a bonus. Would like to have "undo" button for tagging mistakes, etc. Haven't used video features much but had some performance issues occasionally when I did.

    Summary

    Has similar features to many other media managers but handles more file formats than most and is easy to customize and use. Have been using for about 6 years as my only media manager. Would recommend upgrade to gold if you like the basic program.

    "Wonderful music player"

    September 28, 2013   |   By martinjoseph803

    Version: MediaMonkey Standard 4.0.7.1511

    Pros

    It organizes the music collection very well. In case if a music file has been corrupted due to some unknown reason then you can fix by using this utility.

    Cons

    It is not very easy to use. If you want to test all its features then it necessary to read the help file.

    "Cnet/Download uploaded the GERMAN language, not English"

    August 21, 2013   |   By SoftwareTestPilot

    Version: MediaMonkey Standard 4.0.7.1511

    Pros

    CNET sucks. These software developers pay to get listed, then Bait & Switch.

    Cons

    CNET/DOWNLOAD uploaded the German language for this software during the latest update. Go to MediaMonkey's own website to download the English. Sheeesh!

    "Simply the best"

    August 19, 2013   |   By neologic60

    Version: MediaMonkey Standard 4.0.7.1511

    Pros

    A doddle to use - play, convert, organise
    All your music management in one programme
    Looks good thanks to extensive skin library kept fresh for more than a decade
    Sounds great, especially through amplified system - infinitely tweakable with EQ

    Cons

    If it could record audio from PC I would never use anything else, but there are other programs that do that well so not a major drawback.

    Also had a slightly dodgy experience with importing music into the library many versions ago - tracks got lost, and it slowed the machine down (though that was before dual and quad-core CPUs). Haven't used it since so it may be better now, and in truth don't need it because of how I organise my music

    Summary

    If you have a large digital music collection that you have taken care to organise properly, do yourself a favour and get Media Monkey to keep it that way. I have grown my collection to more than 50,000 tracks over a decade, and MM is at the heart of it all. Server, portable devices, CDs....all are fed through this. Can't imagine using anything else.
