    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.1.5.1) and
    Kodi v19+ (v2.1.5.1) have been posted on GitHub. These versions contain a new
    database CSV export facility for Mezzmo data and some generic uPNP bug fixes.


    New Features and fixes

    • Added CSV export capability for Kodi and Mezzmo addon databases.
    • Modified Logs & Stats GUI reporting limit to the 2,000 most recent records.
      Older records can be access via the new CSV export utility.
    • Added inserting the Mezzmo audio track language field to the Kodi DB
      streamdetails table. Previously just the codec type and # of channels
      were inserted.
    • Fixed improper duration information from Twonky uPNP servers impacting
      displaying music and videos.
    • Fixed artist information from Windows 10 uPNP servers.
    • Fixed displaying some audio tracks from Tversity uPNP servers.


    If you have version 1.1.4.4 or 2.1.4.4 installed (or higher), the update will be
    automatic. Otherwise please use the links below for manual installation.


    There are separate links for the Kodi 18 and Kodi 19 versions. The Kodi 19 version is based upon the
    latest Kodi 18 v1.1.5.1 code.

    Kodi 18 link

    Kodi 19+ link

    Click on the download source as a zip option and then to add it to Kodi by using the install from zip file option.
    Again, going forward future versions will be automatic within Kodi itself so downloads should only be needed
    for new installations or Kodi client rebuilds.

    Below is an updated list of tested uPNP servers with the Mezzmo addon.


    List of tested uPNP servers:



    Server Features
    Mezzmo Video, Audio, Images * Full Mezzmo integration
    Windows 10 Video, Audio, Images
    Kodi 19 Video, Audio
    SiliconDust Video
    PlayOn Video
    Tversity Video, Audio * Over native uPNP
    Plex Video, Audio, Image
    Synology NAS Video, Audio, Image
    Twonky Video, Audio, Image


    Mezzmo, by far, has the richest set of metadata, tightest integration and full
    database sync support. The others are limited to what they support over uPNP.



    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Default Updates

    Hi Jeff,

    I updated to 2.1.5.1 working great so far, thanks.

    I really like the improved support for pictures.
    This was the main reason for the update.

    I noticed the new auto update feature. Can this be turned off? I don't see the option to do so.

    Thanks,

    Ron,

    Thanks for the feedback and let me know if you want any additional picture features. Yes automatic updates can be turned off. Go into the addon information and disable the Auto-update setting. I would suggest upgrading to 2.1.5.2 to fix a bug and then you can turnoff Auto-update.

    Jeff,

    I did see that setting in the information, however it is greyed out, and is not settable.

    Thanks,

    Ron,

    I think that's a Kodi issue with their autoupdate detection. If you really want to force it not to update and ensure you do all updates manually (I.e. pull down the zip file and similar, like before) I can tell you what to comment out in the addon.xml file for the Mezzmo addon.

    Make a backup copy of the addon.xml file lcated in .kodi/addons/plugin.vode.mezzmo. In the file you will see this section:

    <extension point="xbmc.addon.repository">
    <info>https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Conceiva/MezzmoKodiPlugin/manifests/kodi-19.xml.gz</info>
    <checksum verify="sha256">https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Conceiva/MezzmoKodiPlugin/manifests/kodi-19.xml.gz.sha256</checksum>
    <datadir>https://github.com/Conceiva/MezzmoKodiPlugin/releases/download</datadir>
    <artdir>https://github.com/Conceiva/MezzmoKodiPlugin/releases/download</artdir>
    <hashes>sha256</hashes>
    </extension>

    Delete these 7 lines and only these 7 lines, then restart Kodi. If everything works the addon will restart fine. If not, either restore your backup add.xml file or just reinstall the addon.


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Jeff,

    Found the issue.

    If Kodi is set to notify but don't update, the setting is disabled.
    When I changed it to automatically update add-ons, it's enabled, and can be changed.

    Thanks for the effort,

    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.1.5.3) and
    Kodi v19+ (v2.1.5.3) have been posted on GitHub. These versions contain a
    minor fix / usability enhancement.


    v1.1.5.3 Kodi 18

    • Removed command introduced in version 1.1.4.3 which would cause the uPNP
    server discovery message status window to be displayed anytime a uPNP
    server stopped responding. This added extra unnecessary clicks to recover
    from a Mezzmo or UPNP server restart.


    v2.1.5.3 Kodi 19+

    • Removed command introduced in version 2.1.4.3 which would cause the uPNP
    server discovery message status window to be displayed anytime a uPNP
    server stopped responding. This added extra unnecessary clicks to recover
    from a Mezzmo or UPNP server restart.

    If you have version 1.1.4.4 or 2.1.4.4 installed (or higher) and autromatic,
    updates enabled this update will be automatic over the next 24 hrs. Otherwise
    please use the links below for manual installation.

    There are separate links for the Kodi 18 and Kodi 19 versions. The Kodi 19 version is based upon the
    latest Kodi 18 v1.1.5.3 code.

    Kodi 18 link

    Kodi 19+ link

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


    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.


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    I decided it was finally time to begin documenting how the Mezzmo Kodi addon works and provide more information so people can maximize the features and capabilities of Mezzmo and Kodi working together with the addon. I've started a Wiki page . It's still a work in progress. Feedback, fixes, additional content suggestions and such are most certainly welcome.


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    I've spent the past week updating the Mezzmo Kodi addon Wiki. There is now a lot of content there with major sections on How it works, Getting started, Settings, Managing Your Library, Logs & Statistics, Library Views, uPNP servers and more. I also added a lot of Frequently Asked Questions, lots of screen shots and more. There are very specific topics on adding content, removing content, sharing across Kodi devices, parental controls, movie sets, resume point sharing, managing and locking metadata, playlists and much more. You may want to visit the Wiki just to find some ways to better utilitze certain Mezzmo capabilities.

    I hope you find this useful and feedback is welcome.
