MediaMonkey is a Windows-based media player/library, with built-in file tagger & organizer, Audio CD ripper/burner (limited speed on free version), Data CD burner (also limited speed on free version), transcoding tool, Replay Gain tool, and lots others, all in an integrated user interface natively themed as a (skinnable) media library.

It maintains its library in a database that is compatible with Microsoft Access database format, and as such, the database entries can be changed by using Access or other compatible programs. However, it also stores most of its information into the media files' tags (ID3v1, ID3v2, Vorbis comment, WMA, APEv2, and WAV tags are supported), thus ensuring usability with other media players.

MediaMonkey also provides auto-tagging/auto-renaming support, in which tag information are deduced from file's path and name (or alternatively through Amazon which support tagging/adding Album Art), or reversely, renaming (and relocating) files based on their tag or path information.

Finally, MediaMonkey also support integration with various portable DAPs, including Apple iPod, iRiver, and Creative Labs devices.

Supported Formats

In addition, MediaMonkey provides scripting interfaces, so it is scriptable (built-in support for JavaScript/VB Script) and also controllable by external applications (through Winamp Compatible Messages or OLE Automatization Server/COM+).

Finally, MediaMonkey is skinnable. Many MediaMonkey users have developed various skins for it, which you can find in the MediaMonkey Wiki.
