  1. Make the Play/Pause/etc controls available from all tabs

    The controls at the bottom of the main tab could be visible in all of the tabs, to allow us to control the currently playing music without having to return to the main tab.

        • Start MM on connect

          In Miscellanious Settings on Remote Server.
          It can detect that MM is not running, it can start it anyway. Make it to start MM on event (connection).
          It seems to be not difficult and very useful - really, if I've started MMRemoteApp, I obviously want to use my MediaMonkey without extra taps (or walking to my mediacenter).
          Thanx.
          (If I missed that idea anywhere - sorry, point me and del this please.)

          • Support for Skip Counter (MM4)

            When skipping to the next track, actually increasing the Skip Counter of the current track before moving to the next track would be consistent with the behaviour of MediaMonkey 4. It is also nice for users of auto rating scripts such as AutoRateAccurate. :)

            • Ability to switch which collection AutoDJ plays.

              I have 200k songs. I only play using AutoDJ rules. Would be great to pick which collection plays from remote. I.e. kids collection, Christmas music collection, all music, pg music, etc..

              • Extend Previous/Next track to Android Wear notification

                Enabling a permanent notification also pushes a notification to Android Wear with album art, which is fantastic. But regardless of what buttons are set to be shown on the regular notification, the options available on Android Wear are Play/pause on the main card (working) and volume up/down on the second page (not working). Would it be possible to add previous/next track to the second page?

                  Hi there! I don’t have an Android Wear, so I have no idea how that stuff works. If you could explain it very thorough, I may have a chance, otherwise, I’ll just have to wait until I buy an Android Wear (if I ever do).

                        Hi there!

                        Do you mean the file information in “Details”, or do you mean the track information on each individual track in the Playlist and Library?

                        If it’s the former, I assume you mean customizing the sequence? If it’s the latter, I assume you mean customizing which information is showing (instead of the default Album and Artist).

                        Please let me know what you mean

                      • UI improvement needed!!!!

                        Stop making me try to tap a goddamn tiny triangle on the edge of the screen to access options!!!!!! Give me a bigger button!!!

                              Bitte um Hilfe, da erst alles Vorbildlich lief kann ich das skipen nicht verstehen. Auch steigt das Gerät aus oder hat keinen Servetkontakt. Das kommt sehr oft vor.

                                Hi there!

                                Could you please try to explain in English? My German is quite poor.

                                My first tip is to simply restart MediaMonkey. Judging by the little I understand, this sounds like something that happens with my MediaMonkey sometimes when it can’t find the music files for some reason.

                              • Add option to Queue (F3 button press with "queue list plugin")

                                Add option to Queue file (F3 button press with "queue list plugin")

                                see: http://solair.eunet.rs/~zvezdand/QueueList.htm

                                • Restart MediaMonkey once per day at a set time.

                                  It would be nice to exit and restart MediaMonkey once per day.

                                  - Make a note if it was currently playing or not.
                                  - Kill the MM process
                                  - Wait a few seconds
                                  - Start MM back up
                                  - If it was playing before, click the play button
