Monkey Around with Your Media Files

SUMMARY: MediaMonkey for Windows lets you organize and play multimedia files, supporting visualizations and a party mode.

MediaMonkey is a multimedia organizer and player for Windows with support for many types of files including AAC, FLA, MP3, OGG, and WMA. Files can be organized and viewed by file location, album, artist, composer, and genre. Besides reading ID3 tags, you can key in a variety of classifications such as tempo, mood, occasion, and quality, plus album art and lyrics can be added.

Besides multimedia playback, MediaMonkey supports ripping files from CD, burning CDs and DVDs, converting audio between formats, syncing with external audio devices, downloading podcasts, visualizations (additional visualizations can be obtained online), and a special "Party Mode" that prevents changes to your media library and helps prevent switching to other Windows applications (with an optional administrator password lock).
