I agree with The Oolong Man
's implications of Musicmatch
Jukebox's problem. It is too tyrannical
. It does too much automatically, without asking. If you use TweakUI
to disable cd-autoplay, then tough. Every time MMJB
starts it turns it back on. In Win9X
I disabled auto-insert at the hardware level, but in Win2k
I can't find that, and it's just plain obnoxious no matter what.
In the latest version of MMJB
I too can not get it to stop bugging me about claiming file formats.
It is buggy. It just now(last version I think) started having real playlist
use - a couple versions ago I wanted to open a playlist
I created in Winamp
and burn it to a cd--Musicmatch would only let me open playlists created in musicmatch
, or residing in my "My Music
" folder(which I don't use).
I personally find Musicmatch to be extremely slow and kludgy
, despite running it on 600mhz
machines with 128mb RAM
. It has flashy
and useless stuff
that you can't get rid of. I often hit "hidden" links in the interface, which go slowly launching a web browser
when I was just trying to drag the player over a few pixels.
Musicmatch isn't free(its disabled shareware
(and other ripping
utilities) are completely free, and IMO
faster, more stable, and just plain better.
Regardless, I've used Musicmatch Jukebox a whole lot for ripping cds, and would probably have paid for the full version
if not for the problems listed above.
