MediaMonkey for Android is coming soon

If you are a fan of MediaMonkey you will be happy to know that it is being developed for Android by fellow XDA forum member, BulletproofIdeal, to celebrate the upcoming release of the fourth version of the desktop client.

If you are not familiar with MediaMonkey here is how the wiki describes it:

MediaMonkey is a proprietary digital media player and media library application developed by Ventis Media Inc., for organizing and playing audio on Microsoft Windowsoperating systems. By using plugins, it can be extended to handle video and other media formats as well.

This is a work-in-progress beta, but it is well underway. Checkout the list of planned features after the break:

  • MM.db sync and merge
  • Non-native codec support (Ogg, Flac, Ape)
  • Basic library managment (Tag with search, media scanner to load non-native codecs)
  • DLNA control point for MM4
  • DLNA renderer for MM4
  • Lockscreen widget with swipe controls
  • Companion MM4 plugin to handle syncing
  • Skin support

Most of all, MediaMonkey developers have given support for this project. Expect to see support for music early on, but with enough momentum, video may come as well. So far interest has been high, so head over to the forums to track this project and give your valuable input.

    Yes, MediaMonkey is easily the best music player I’ve seen for Windows. This is definitely going on my phone!

    Very nice, I’ll hope, MM for Android is coming soon …

  • Kalowski

    I wonder where we’re up to with this?

  • Daniel

    alright! hoping the syncing capabilities will be spot-on, still get some artwork issues with MM and PowerAMP, any word on whether it will be free or not? If I end up having to pay for another music player I will be slightly annoyed, and also hoping it matches powerAMP on user interface and style, that picture shows it to be very Winampy atm

    seems like a lot of crickets…  is this project dead in the water?  That would be a shame.
