03-01-2014, 09:43 AM
We are just putting the finishing touches to Mezzmo v4.0 and our brand new Mezzmo (Android) app.

We would like to invite a limited group of Mezzmo registered users to provide feedback how it performs with their devices and collection of files.

A few of the new features in Mezzmo v4.0 (Windows) that we would like feedback on:

Reading and streaming Blu-ray ripped files and Blu-ray ISO files.
Content ratings for files, folders and playlists. All countries' rating systems supported including MPAA.
Restrict streaming files, folders and playlists to your devices based on a selected content rating (e.g. R-rated content) for full parental control. Set times when content restrictions are active (e.g. between 6:00AM to 9:00PM). Use PIN code in Mezzmo (Android) to bypass content restrictions.
Smart playlist rules in Active playlists so you can now filter your active playlists.
Collecting more metadata for movies and TV shows - including posters, backdrops, taglines, content ratings, IMDB links, web site links, release date, keywords, producers, writers, production companies and more.
Collecting more metadata for photos - including EXIF, XMP and IPTC metadata.

Set your Mezzmo database location to your preferred drive & folder.
Optimized, smaller Mezzmo database files.

This Beta testing is limited to registered Mezzmo users only.
We will limit the number of Beta testers to keep it manageable for us. We apologize if we cannot fit you into Beta testing group.
Mezzmo v4.0 Beta installs side-by-side with your existing Mezzmo version so it should not affect your existing Mezzmo server and Mezzmo library.
