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, ReplayGain tool, and lots others, all in an integrated user interface natively themed as a (skinnable) media library. As of version 5, MediaMonkey is also available on Android.

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, WAV and AAC 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 a 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. MediaMonkey 3.2 added support for Palm Pre.

Supported formats

Additional formats may be supported through Winamp input plugins (see below)


(This section is not checked against MM version 5, not against MM for Android, and and not against any differences in versions.)

MediaMonkey supports most Winamp's input, output, DSP, general, and visualization plugins.

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.


MediaMonkey is available in a freemium model with a free feature-restricted "Standard Version" for Windows / Android, and a paid version called "Pro" for Android and "Gold" for Windows. The "Gold" is available in two tiers, one with upgrades during the 5.x cycle included, and one for "Lifetime".
