    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.1.2.4) and
    Kodi v19 (v2.1.2.4) has been posted on GitHub. These versions contain a couple
    of bug fixes including a major fix where some Kodi skins could not display certain
    category types from Mezzmo, including the recently added nosync feature.



    v1.1.2.4 Kodi 18

    • Major fix of contentType errors impacting many Kodi skins not being
    able to display content with certain Mezzmo categories including the
    nosync category feature implemented in v1.1.2.2.


    v2.1.2.4 Kodi 19

    • Major fix of contentType errors impacting many Kodi skins not being
    able to display content with certain Mezzmo categories including the
    nosync category feature implemented in v2.1.2.2.
    • Fixed invalid duplicate file messages in Kodi logs due to LibreElec
    Raspberry Pi fix in v2.1.2.2.


    There are separate links for the Kodi 18 and Kodi 19 versions. The Kodi 19 version is based upon the
    latest Kodi 18 v1.1.2.4 code.

    Click on the download source as a zip option and then to add it to Kodi by using the install from zip file option.


    A huge thanks to Ron B. for his patience and time in helping identify the content type errors.

    Feedback and feature requests are always welcome. I would like to understand how many of you use the
    addon to play music from Mezzmo ? This could help guide future feature development.

    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.1.2.5) and
    Kodi v19 (v2.1.2.5) has been posted on GitHub. These versions contain a bug
    fix and a couple of enhancements.


    v1.1.2.5 Kodi 18

    • Improved fix of contentType errors. The addon settings now include
    an All Other Content View setting to handle default contentType
    view mapping vs. v1.1.2.4 which had a hard coded default.
    • Fixed an obscure bug where the sync process could fail if a duplicate
    file was found but it was not fully discovered by Mezzmo and was
    missing information.
    • Added support for a Music Video Mezzmo category type and associated
    Kodi view settings.


    v2.1.2.5 Kodi 19

    • Improved fix of contentType errors. The addon settings now include
    an All Other Content View setting to handle default contentType
    view mapping vs. v2.1.2.4 which had a hard coded default.
    • Fixed an obscure bug where the sync process could fail if a duplicate

    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.1.2.6) and
    Kodi v19 (v2.1.2.6) has been posted on GitHub. These versions contain a minor
    bug fix and a new enhancement adding bookmarks for audio files. Due to a Kodi
    bug you won't see the bookmark icon when displaying audio files but if you right
    click and bring up the context menu you will see the Play From bookmark.


    v1.1.2.6 Kodi 18

    Fixed Kodi sync % calculation could be greater than 100% if Mezzmo
    records were deleted.
    Added bookmark feature to music / audio files. Mezzmo will now
    automatically set the bookmark so you can continue replay from the
    bookmark point like with video files. This will be helpful for long
    audio / music files like audio books and similar.

    *** Note this feature requires a Mezzmo update. Please contact
    Mezzmo support for the update ***

    screen.
    Added new functionality Mezzmo Mark Watched context menu option
    for music / audio files which will update the Mezzmo database
    when clicked. This is the same feature which exists for video
    files except the Kodi database isn't updated since audio files
    currently don't sync between the Mezzmo and Kodi databases.

    In case you might be wondering why there haven’t been any Kodi addon updates recently, it is simply because there are no reported bugs or pending feature requests. I do have one minor enhancement which has been coded but not released yet. It provides for a popup dialog box when you do a search and no results are found. The dialog box will tell you that no results were found in Mezzmo vs. today you get back an empty playlist which could be the result of a failed search, no results found or something else. The new dialog box will tell you with certainty that the Mezzmo search was successful but no matching results were found.

    One idea I wanted to get feedback on is Kodi handling of movies with multiple trailers. Natively Kodi can only handle 1 trailer per movie. Whereas the Mezzmo Android client displays all trailers and allows you to choose which one to play. I’ve looked at ways to handle multiple trailers in Kodi. There are a couple of options like randomizing a single trailer from the trailer list and passing it to Kodi (vs. today you always get the first trailer in the list) or adding a context menu item where you get a dialog box with all trailers and you can pick from them. The second option would likely be tied to the background sync process where a database of trailers would be populated by the sync process and the context menu code would query the trailers for the movie selected.

    There is also the option of doing both where when you select the Kodi native trailer option from the video information panel you get the single randomized result and if you have background sync enabled you can get the context menu option.

    I wanted to get feedback on whether anyone would find handling of multiple trailers of any value. I am fine with the current Kodi single trailer capabilities but wanted to get feedback from others.



    Thanks,

    Jeff

    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.1.2.8) and
    Kodi v19 (v2.1.2.8) has been posted on GitHub. These versions contain a couple
    of feature enhancements.


    v1.1.2.8 Kodi 18

    Added dialog box response when no matching search results are found
    on the Mezzmo server when performing a search. Previously an empty
    playlist was presented.
    Added new setting which you can select between 0 - 60 minutes to
    stop a paused playback. 0 means never stop a paused playback. This
    feature is useful if you walk away for a length of time and forget to
    stop something you are watching. The bookmark will be set so you can
    resume watching where you left off.

    2.1.2.8 working well here, the stop a paused playback feature is really useful.

    Thanks for testing Ron. I agree, it is a handy feature. I got the idea from another Kodi addon which was written just for this function. I looked at it and thought it would be an easy addition to the Mezzmo addon. I do have a question. Would it be helpful to have a popup box appear after the addon stops a paused playback, to let you know why it stopped ? It writes a log message but a popup might be more user friendly.

    I don't think I'd need it, but could be useful for others.

    The only concern I'd have is if the pop-up box interferes with the screen saver operation. The thing I like most about this new feature is if I forget to un-pause it, the Kodi screensaver will work as intended.

    Thanks for the feedback Ron. I hadn't thought about the screen saver aspect of this. A notification message would work and not impede the screen saver but a typical Ok dialog box would require the user to hit the Ok button. I'll leave it as is for now, until I hear further feedback. I have tested the notification message option.
