View Full Version : parental control not working on Windows media player

01-24-2014, 04:51 AM
I installed Mezzmo on home server and added some video files in two folder, one for personal and one for my children.
and I used "Playlist sharing permissions" feature for hide personal video folder on PC in livingroom.

it works on XBMC and windows explorer correctly but Windows media player ignored parental control and shows every files on server on its Library.
How can I correct this?

(I seen a post this is known issues. was it still not fixed?)

This issue does exist for Windows Media Player in the current version of Mezzmo (v3.4.4.0) since WMP does not browse using the playlists and folders you have defined (and assigned permissions to) in your Mezzmo library but uses it's own playlists - so it bypasses your permissions.

We are just finishing Mezzmo v4.0 at the moment and it includes new parental control & content rating features that will let you restrict what playlists, folders and files get delivered to your devices. It is expected to be released within the next month. It is a free upgrade for all registered users.
