View Full Version : v3 Upgrade

So does anyone else have to re-transcode their entire library after the update? I just added 3 new video files and did my normal right click on video playlist and pre-transcode playlist and now it has queued my entire library for transcoding. :mad:

Oh, and can someone point out where I the series playlist is? When I try to create a new playlist I'm only getting the original options.....

Hi rsedlik,

One reason that you could see new files being transcoded (that were already transcoded in the previous version) is possibly due to subtitles (either burning into the video or embedded as subtitle channels). What device did you pre-transcode for? What device profile is assigned for this device (see the Media Devices dialog)? That will help us understand what is happening.

Regarding the Series playlist, it should have been inserted under the Videos playlist (perhaps you have removed the Videos playlist?). You can easily create the Series playlist yourself. Do the following:

Select the 'Videos' playlist in the tree in Mezzmo (or wherever you want the Series playlist to be located in the tree).
Click 'Create Playlist' -> 'Active Playlist'
In the 'Active Playlist Properties' dialog, give your playlist a name - i.e. "Series".
Click the Add button and choose 'Album / Series'.
Click the Add button again and choose 'Disc / Season'.
Click the 'Videos files' radio button.
Click OK and your Series playlist is created. Any video files in your Mezzmo library that have Series, Season and Episode information will be listed here.

Let us know if you have any problems.
