MediaMonkey is an easy-to-use music manager and media jukebox for serious music collectors and iPod users. It catalogs your CDs, OGG, WMA, MPC, FLAC, APE, WAV and MP3 audio files. It looks up missing Album Art and track information via Freedb and the web, and includes an intelligent tag editor and an automated file and directory renamer to organize your music library. It includes a CD ripper, CD Burner, and audio converter for saving music, and manual or automated playlist editors for creating music mixes. Its player automatically adjusts volume levels so that you don't have continually fiddle with the volume control and supports hundreds of Winamp plug-ins and visualizations; or if you prefer, it can use Winamp as the default player. It also includes portable audio device synchronization that allows you to quickly synch tracks and playlists with iPods and other portable audio devices.

I don't actually pay for much software. But this I have. My music collection is rather large, and MM really takes care of it all. Plays, tags, renames, streams, etc...Everything. As far as performance goes, I find that it runs well on my setup. quad core intel 8gb ram, even with many other applications running. It reads UPNP servers easily. Just a great program. A few quirks on the interface I would rather not have, but meh, no biggie.
Reviewing 126.96.36.1995 Beta (Aug 13, 2011)
The current build is not a beta as it currently says here. It is a developer build. It has a number of known bugs (15 urgent ones according to their website).
Stick with version 3 if you don't like being a tester or need stability. You can run version 4 alongside version 3 if you like to test but want to keep your stable version clean of problems. Rating is of version 3, the current release build.

This app is pretty good as a music organizer. But as a player it's too bloated and ugly. I prefer XMPlay, also skinable, but way lighter on its feet and much prettier skins.

I have used J River Media Center for many years. I happened to read an article about MM and thought I would try it. I haven't been disappointed. The name is misleading, as it only handles music. But, it's free, so I will certainly not complain. There are plenty of skins to choose from, and able to use the dfx plug-in. J River offers so much more, and I will never can that one. I am tempted to upgrade to the PRO version of MM. No lifetime upgrades for me, I got burned by that scam with MusicMatch. If I was looking for something to just handle music, MM would be the one for me.
