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.

"Useful tool but a maddening rip interface"

April 07, 2016

2016-04-07 13:05:21

 |  Version: MediaMonkey 4.1.11.1783

Pros

Powerful tool,

Cons

The CD-ripping interface is maddening if you need to customise track names. One slip, for example inadvertently press the down arrow when the main file-naming input control is selected, and you lose every customisation you put in, you have to start over.

And, the fonts are way too small for all but the very best eyes.

Summary

Useful tool but the UI needs work.

"iffy performance"

January 23, 2016  |  By AvidReaderCanada

2016-01-23 13:40:04  |  By AvidReaderCanada

 |  Version: MediaMonkey 4.1.10.1778

Pros

With the addition of a $10 code pack, this program will convert anything and t handles tags with cool efficiency.

Cons

Poor graphics handling. Frequent crashes which occasionally take down my system (Win7, AMD Phenom II X6 1090T and 1055T Six cores, 6 GB).

Summary

I've owned a copy of MediaMonkey for over 5 years. The graphics and performance are hardly with the C$40+ paid for it in 2011.

I'm trying to find other software which can perform the same functions as I'm fed up with their inability to fix the problems I've been reporting since they started. :(

"The best in the world of mediaplayers"

October 29, 2015  |  By Atarah

2015-10-29 12:29:35  |  By Atarah

 |  Version: MediaMonkey Standard 4.1.9.1764

Pros

I love the way the auto DJ works.
There is more than one way to create your own play lists. Files can be added or removed from the playlist after it has been saved. There is also an auto playlist generator, you can specify the genre, rating, artist and so on to create the auto playlist as well as the length. A large number of skins to choose from which include a micro player using very little space on the task bar. There is also an auto DJ function which selects tracks at random from the library. There is also a number of other useful functions such as podcasts, audio books and so on.

Cons

I have not experienced any hassles with Media Monkey.

"Outstanding! This is the very best of its type."

August 17, 2015  |  By WhatsHis Name

2015-08-17 14:34:19  |  By WhatsHis Name

 |  Version: MediaMonkey Standard 4.1.8.1751

Pros

Fast rip and burn times.
Excellent cataloging and referencing.
Easy to use- very intuitive.
Does a great job with any audio.
Very complete and helpful online Help files; I have always been able to find an answer to my questions.

Cons

Ripping audiobooks sometimes requires going in to edit the properties. This can be a little tricky the first few times.
If the recording is not recognized by the database MediaMonkey uses you need to go in and manually enter the titles, artists, etc. This is tedious BUT it does not happen very often.

Summary

I highly recommend this program. MediaMonkey is fast, easy to use, with exceptional cataloging. Ecxellent clarity. I would give it at least 8 stars if I could.

"FAR superior to iTunes"

February 07, 2015  |  By Brachvogel

2015-02-07 12:42:57  |  By Brachvogel

 |  Version: MediaMonkey Standard 4.1.5.1719

Pros

Easy to install, quick to load, very logical and easy to use, can manage my iPod Shuffle using it with no problems. I am left with only one question: WHY did I suffer iTunes for so long?

Cons

After using the regularly malfunctioning, bloated, unintuitive, cumbersome, horrendously slow iTunes for years thinking there was no alternative which I could use along with my iPod Shuffle - Mediamonkey presents NO negatives whatsoever.

Summary

Works like a dream. (I use Windows 7.)

"Very Useful for Music"

April 26, 2014  |  By Red_Kangaroo

2014-04-26 17:14:58  |  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

2014-04-07 18:37:02  |  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.
