MediaMonkey & Launchy (Update)

Well some time has passed since the last update of this topic. I’ve been really busy lately and had little to no spare time to develop and continue with this little project.

Yesterday I installed the new version of MediaMonkey and start testing it again, I’m an iTunes fan because of it’s podcast management and it’s really easy to use interface but i’ve been looking for something different that can handle my iPod and my SmartPhone (Omnia i900L with WM 6.5.1  6.5.3) and i think i just found it 😀

The issue was that I got so accustomed on using iTuny and Launchy that the transition from my keyboard to my mouse was not a thing i wanted to… so that’s why I took over my almost dead dream… to port iTunys functionality to MediaMonkey 😛

I started with babysteps (Play, Pause, Stop , Next, Previous) and now I added Rating, Notifications, Track Information, and Twitter “integration” allowing you to post your current playing song to twitter in the way you want it 😀

On iTuny you could post to twitter but with an standard format: Listening: TrackName – TrackArtist (TrackAlbum) but now you can use the format you want using special tags xD and add the text you want.

MMonkey Config Window

Here you can see the new Twitter String box this field lets you construct your post to twitter just remember (not more than 140 Characters including the track info)

I hope to get the first beta out really soon (maybe this week)

See ya soon 😀
Comments are welcome 😀

UPDATE: Hi everyone! I’ve been working on MMonkey to make it better 🙂 right now i added some functionality to it like the useful TAG command letting you edit artist, album, tracknumber, grouping, genre, played counter, etc. I added the AutoDJ function so you can turn it on or off, and some other stuff making this a better app.

If you are willing to beta test it comment pls and I will let you know where to download the beta to try it. Thanks and Greetings.

    I have been looking for this for ages, any chance of a copy to help you test.

      Would you like to beta test it? I have a beta realease build. I’m using Windows 7 and i’m having some weird behaviour with MMonkey but it’s working.

    I’d love to beta test this if it’s still under development. Any chance of adding support so I can add artists/albums/tracks to the now playing playlist from Launchy? I was spoiled on OSX to have Launchbar which let me search my library AND choose to play next on iTunesDJ or add to the end of the iTunesDJ playlist.

    Any further development on this? Been a long time since any updates. Would like to beta test as well
