    Have you noticed any performance improvement over 19?

    I'm just wondering if it's worth it to upgrade or not.

    Thanks!
    It is possible to upgrade from 19 to 20. In fact I tested upgrading from 18 to 20. I would hold off quite a bit until Nexus is production and not in alpha code. The upgrade from 19 to 20 will be less eventful than 18 to 19, which changed the version of Python from 2 to 3. However, there are likely some addons which will break when going to 20. I found 2 older calls in code I was using in 19 which are no longer supported in 20, which prompted the Mezzmo Kodi addon bump to 2.1.6.3. One thing to note is that the things that may break when going from 19 to 20 may not be readily apparent and might only be seen in the logs.

    I will be doing some performance testing between 19 and 20. So far I am testing with the Windows builds and am seeing about a 10% improvement when browsing the Mezzmo library. There's a new method Kodi has for displaying items in the GUI, which is supposed to speed up performance even more. That's going to require a bit of code changes and will likely appear in a future release of the addon. I'll update as that testing proceeds.


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.1.6.4) and
    Kodi v19+ (v2.1.6.4) have been posted on GitHub. These versions contain two minor
    enhancements and v2.1.6.4 is focused on supporting Kodi 20, Nexus, including
    support of a new rendering method for improved performance when running in the
    normal GUI mode. This will improve the speed at which playlists display, especially
    large playlists on lower powered devices. Additional Nexus testing will occur as the
    beta and production processes occur.


    v1.1.6.4 Kodi 18

    Fixed issue where movie title may not always appear in the video information
    panel when using the Estuary skin.
    Improved artwork detection and metadata for certain uPNP servers.


    v2.1.6.4 Kodi 19+

    Fixed issue where movie title may not always appear in the video information
    panel when using the Estuary skin.
    Improved artwork detection and metadata for certain uPNP servers.
    Added support for new Nexus 20 metadata rendering method for Mezzmo and Generic
    uPNP servers.

    If you have version 1.1.4.4 or 2.1.4.4 installed (or higher) and automatic updates
    are 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 v1.1.6.4 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.


    *** Note for Kodi Nexus 20 users ***

    Please keep an eye out for items not displaying when browsing your Mezzmo or uPNP playlists. The
    new Nexus 20 rendering method is quite a bit different than Kodi 19 and before so there is a lot of new
    code in use. I've tried to test for all possibilities but there could still be situations where a playlist
    may get truncated or doesn't display due to something unique being received from the server being
    browsed. If you experience this, please let me know right away.


    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've created a new Wiki page in order to highlight new proposed features for the Mezzmo
    Kodi addon. With the Wiki page it is now much easier to provide provide some screenshots
    of what the new features might look like and get feedback. Currently there are 3 new feature
    proposals being considered.

    Quick Play

    Movie Sets

    Movie Versions


    As new features are proposed they will be added and as they are adopted they will be
    removed from the proposal Wiki page. Features which are proposed but not adopted
    (i.e. complexity, redundancy etc..) will be moved to the bottom.

    Feedback is very welcome on the proposed features as well as any new features you
    might be interested in seeing added.

    Additionally I've spent quite a bit of time updating the Wiki page for Managing Your Library
    and Movie Trailers. New topics include: Deleting Content, Backup and Restore, and Local
    Movie Trailers.

    I hope you find these helpful.


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    A new proposed feature called Immediate Full Sync has been added to the Proposed New
    Features
    Wiki page.

    Brief Description:

    Currently the Mezzmo Kodi addon allows clearing of the Mezzmo data in the Kodi database
    via the addon settings option "Kodi DB clear Mezzmo data on startup". This Immediate Full
    Sync proposal would modify this setting adding an option to allow a clearing of all Mezzmo
    data in the Kodi DB followed by an immediate full resynchronization of Mezzmo to Kodi DB
    with progress indicator dialog box. Currently when you clear your Kodi database the
    background sync process handles the rebuild, which takes longer.

    This feature request seems very helpful and is likely to be implemented. Feedback is
    welcome.

    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.1.6.5) and
    Kodi v19+ (v2.1.6.5) have been posted on GitHub. These versions contain a bug
    fix, some minor tweaks and a new feature enhancements which allows a full
    resync of your Kodi DB from Mezzmo on demand. Previously you could clear
    the Kodi DB on demand but the rebuild process was tied to the hourly sync.
    Now you can do a total rebuild on the fly. It isn't something you will likely need
    to do often but it will be handy if you need it.


    v1.1.6.5 Kodi 18

    Improved clarity for the notification message when no Mezzmo sync server has
    been selected.
    Extended functionality of the clear Mezzmo from Kodi database setting option
    to now allow a full immediate resync of all Mezzmo data into the Kodi database.
    Modified default setting for the Auto Background Sync and Performance Logging
    from disabled to enabled.
    Fixed obscure bug that could prevent setting the Mezzmo sync server if any UPnP
    server responded without proper manufacturer information.

    v2.1.6.5 Kodi 19+

    Improved clarity for the notification message when no Mezzmo sync server has
    been selected.
    Extended functionality of the clear Mezzmo from Kodi database setting option
    to now allow a full immediate resync of all Mezzmo data into the Kodi database.
    Modified default setting for the Auto Background Sync and Performance Logging
    from disabled to enabled.

    processes operate.

    A new proposed feature called Kodi Selective Sync has been added to the Proposed New Features Wiki page.

    Brief Description:

    The Mezzmo Kodi addon currently is an all or nothing solution except for parental controls. Even with parental controls it becomes an all or nothing per device so if you wanted to run multiple profiles in Kodi, each with a different view of your Mezzmo library in Kodi, that currently isn't supported by the addon or some other external sync solutions. Selective sharing of your library by Kodi device in GUI mode is currently supported.

    What this proposal may provide is up to 4 different user selectable, fully customizable, sync profiles for your Kodi instances. These can be shared across Kodi instances and tied to your Kodi profiles. See here for more details on how this proposed might work. This feature would provide centralized control of what each Kodi device and/or profile would see in native mode operation. Now from one place you could quickly change profile content on the fly and not need to touch each Kodi instance to edit what each sees from Mezzmo. This central control has always been available for parental controls but not multiple selective sharing profiles of the library content to individual Kodi devices.



    Feedback is welcome.


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.1.6.6) and
    Kodi v19+ (v2.1.6.6) have been posted on GitHub. These versions contain a
    couple of bugs fixes and a major new enhancement Mezzmo Selective Sync.
    This feature is pretty unique for Kodi syncing solutions and provides up to
    5 custom views of your Mezzmo database for Kodi. Now you can create
    distinct views of your Mezzmo library across Kodi profiles or Kodi devices,
    all being managed centrally.


    v1.1.6.6 Kodi 18

    • Fixed issue where manual Full Sync completion notification message would not
    appear and sync logs improperly indicated 0 records processed if the Mezzmo
    database contained less than 1000 records.
    • Added progress indicator dialog box when manually clearing the Mezzmo data
    in the Kodi database.
    • Fixed issue where Kodi might hang when running multiple profiles and logging
    out of a profile.
    • Added new Mezzmo Selective Sync feature where you can select up to 5 options
    to do full or partial synchronization of your Mezzmo library to Kodi. This
    will allow up to 5 profiles on a Kodi instance each with its own specific
    user definable view of your Mezzmo library.


    v2.1.6.6 Kodi 19+

    • Fixed issue where manual Full Sync completion notification message would not
    appear and sync logs improperly indicated 0 records processed if the Mezzmo
    database contained less than 1000 records.
    • Added progress indicator dialog box when manually clearing the Mezzmo data
    in the Kodi database.
    • Fixed issue where Kodi might hang when running multiple profiles and logging
    out of a profile.

    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.1.6.7) and
    Kodi v19+ (v2.1.6.7) have been posted on GitHub. These versions contain a
    new feature called Prefer Local Trailers and a few minor fixes.

    *** Important Note ***

    Support for Kodi 17 and below will likely be stopped in the very near future for new
    releases and fixes. If you are running Kodi 17 the Mezzmo Kodi addon will continue
    to function but new features and fixes will cease and you will need to disable
    automatic updates. Kodi 18 full support will continue.


    v1.1.6.7 Kodi 18

    New feature, Prefer Local Trailers, added which allows only syncing local
    trailers to the Kodi DB when found or otherwise it will sync You Tube
    trailers if no local trailers are found. This allows You Tube trailers
    for the Mezzmo web interface and local trailers for all other clients
    with Kodi getting the higher quality local trailers.
    Added the ability to export the Addon movie trailers table including all
    trailers, associated movies, trailer order and whether local or You Tube.
    Changed Full Sync completion message from OK dialog box to Kodi notification
    to eliminate manual intervention being required for process to complete.
    Corrected log message showing the wrong number of Mezzmo records synchronized
    to Kodi if user aborts a Full Sync request prior to completion.


    v2.1.6.7 Kodi 19+

    New feature, Prefer Local Trailers, added which allows only syncing local
    trailers to the Kodi DB when found or otherwise it will sync You Tube
    trailers if no local trailers are found. This allows You Tube trailers
    for the Mezzmo web interface and local trailers for all other clients
    with Kodi getting the higher quality local trailers.
    Added the ability to export the Addon movie trailers table including all
    trailers, associated movies, trailer order and whether local or You Tube.
    Changed Full Sync completion message from OK dialog box to Kodi notification
    to eliminate manual intervention being required for process to complete.
    Corrected log message showing the wrong number of Mezzmo records synchronized
    to Kodi if user aborts a Full Sync request prior to completion.
    Fixed issue where a few fields in a couple of tables of the CSV database
    export utility would be UTF-8 encoded vs. plain text.


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