    Default Feature Idea

    I'm going to start out by saying that I might not articulate this in the best way, but I am going to try.

    Have you thought about setting up "virtual channels" in Mezzmo? The idea is this. Set op these "channels" where you can put specific paths in them and they "broadcast" whenever activated with the contents of the paths, but in a random manner, sort of like a TV channel. As an example, I could add in five or six folders (with sub-folders) from various TV series and it would play them by choosing random episodes from the various series. The series themselves would still be played in episode order, but the episodes played would be random.

    As a "more specific" example. I set up a "virtual channel" called 'Sitcoms R Us'. In that "virtual channel" I put in the paths to 'Modern Family', 'Big Bang Theory', 'Mork and Mindy', and 'Friends'. As soon as I selected this "virtual channel" in Mezzmo, it would automatically begin streaming an episode (picked at random) from one of these TV show paths. But it would play the episodes, from each series itself, in order. So like starting with season 1 episode 1, and so forth, but the actual show itself, like 'Mork and Mindy', 'Modern Family', Big Bang Theory', or whatever gets picked at random.

    I hope that this makes sense. If it doesn't, I will endeavor to clarify.

    This is similar to a request we have had previously where the playlist should allow you to play an episode from a series that you have not watched yet from a random group of series in episode order. Currently we do not have the ability in Mezzmo to create a playlist like this, we can excluded episodes that have been watched using a rule playcount = 0 but we cannot display episodes in order and randomize them with other series or only display the next unwatched episode of a group of series in random order. This is something that a plugin may be able to do in python more effectively by getting a list of episodes and just returning the next unplayed episode then randomizing the order in the group of selected series.

    Currently the python plugins can only deliver information to the Mezzmo server and not receive information so we could not pass a list of series and episodes to the plugin and have them filtered but this might be an idea to explore.
