MusicMatch Jukebox is a music manager and music player, with support for playlists.
This program stopped their development in the year 2005 so that there are features that don't work anymore. This is because the program makes use of Internet connections that don't exist. It's very common that the program displays the following error ”Sorry, your Internet connection could not be detected”. Even so, the program remains functional and can be used as an audio player and music manager.
MusicMatch Jukebox today remains as the music player preferred by some users. This is because it allows to organize and label easily our music library. The import of our music collection is simple, as we only need to add the directory or directories where we have located the music, and the program automatically analyzes files tags and displays them in the “Library” section.
We can organize our Library by album, artist, genre, and rating. This allows us to quickly find what we want to listen. In addition, the program features a search engine that can search by artist, album, and genre. we can create simple “Playlists”, selecting those songs that we want to include in the List that we are creating.
Other functionality that we can use, is the conversion of CD music to MP3 format, making it possible to perform the reverse operation, that is to say, create an audio CD from selected songs from our music library. To perform this action, we just need to drag the songs we want to record and press the “Burn” button.
When installing the program, we must introduce our year of birth, and the program will check our age and let us continue with the installation. We also need to introduce our name and e-mail. When it displays the option “Personalized Music Recommendations” we must check “No”.
At the end of the installation, we must check the following box “Do not install Yahoo! Toolbar” and click “Next>”.This way we avoid to install Yahoo! toolbar in our browser.
When the program runs for the first time, it is advisable to choose the “Basic Setup” option.
The program is free and offered a paid PRO version with additional features. So we will have to ignore all references to the PRO version, as we will not be able to make use of them.
