MMRemote


Have you ever found yourself a couple of feet away from your computer, tired of the currently playing song, but too lazy to actually get up and change it? Fear not, with the MMRemote, this is history!

This is a remote client for the media player MediaMonkey for Windows. In order to use this app, you obviously need MediaMonkey itself, but you also need the MMRemote server installed on your computer. This is a free Windows application that can be downloaded from http://mmremote.net.

Note: I am just a hobby developer, and have no affiliation with the MediaMonkey team.

Have you found a BUG? Please contact me on my e-mail or forum to tell me about it, and I'll do what I can to help you. The forum can be found here: http://mmremote.net/Forum/, my e-mail is located at the bottom of this page.

- Manipulate the 'Now Playing' list in any way you want.
- Browse your music library using most of the categories from MediaMonkey, and play anything you want.
- Browse your playlists (both manual and auto playlists), and play entire lists or selected songs.
- Control the sound volume of both MediaMonkey and Windows itself (including mute), and override the devices hardware volume buttons if you so wish.
- Rate your songs (with support for half stars).

Known issues:
- Can't control system volume on Windows XP machines (MediaMonkey volume can still be controlled, though).
- Some Windows 7 computers have problems with browsing the library from the remote.
- People with huge playlists should deactivate "Send album arts" in the server to reduce memory usage. Working on a fix.

Recent changes:
January 29th
- Minor bugfixes
- Updated tutorial and fixed FAQ issues.

It's great I had a problem with this version, just wouldn't connect. Checked for updates in my server and found none. Turned out my server version was so old(an entire major revision, 1.x something) it probably couldn't interface with new version update system. After manual update, all worked, and the sheer amount of new awesome features was pretty crazy. I've missed out for not keeping up for over a year. Well done mate. Well worth donation for any on the fence.

Please help: No longer works!!! Broken since the last update. I spent THREE HOURS trying to figure it out. I paid the money for full features, when I go to open this app I expect it to work.

Excellent app This is great. Works flawlessly, has everything I need and looks very very cool. Update: reinstalled for the nth time after it hung again. Keeps losing album art too. Haven't found anything better though. Update: thanks erland. Latest update seems to have resolved issues. Back to 5 stars.
