View Full Version : description & TV, Movies folders instead of video folder?

06-16-2011, 11:08 AM
I am having an issue with my Moxi box showing up the descriptions for the movies. I am currently looking for the ultimate tool to display my media, I haven't found the perfect beast yet and have gone through trying out several products. At this point Mezzmo is the closest to what I am looking for however there are two features that I haven't found yet.

1) I would like to see a description of the movie when I scroll over it. ( Playon localfiles does this ) Is this something that can be resolved by a setup change?

2) Is there a way to split TV shows and movies into separate location ( E.G. have a TV folder and Movies folder rather than a video folder )

We don't have a Moxi box here to test this unfortunately, but do you know if Playon stores movie descriptions in an external file or are they part of it's own database? It would help us if you could provide us with a Wireshark log of using Playon and seeing the description - let me know if you're interested in doing this and I'll provide you with instructions.

Regarding playlists - you could create two "normal" playlists in Mezzmo, call one "TV" and the other "Movie" and then drag-and-drop files into those. It's a manual process. If you'd like to automate it, you could create a "smart" playlist and specify "TV" duration to be less than 60 minutes (for example) and "Movie" longer than 60 minutes. It's less accurate, but should work in most cases...

Here are the pcaps :)

The playon plugin is just pulling from mymovies.xml

I looked through and can see the description being passed in several frames : ( 18,19, 21) "LocalFiles.pcap"

If you need anything else I'm more than happy to help.

Thank you for the dump - I'll get this implemented for the next update.
