    In the add-on for View settings, they don't really function with my skin, but the views are natively showing as thumbnails.

    I have had a few crashes, but this might be caused by Matrix being "Alpha".
    Based on what I can tell from the logs, this is happening when I'm navigating through the add-on while it's updating the DB?

    ETA: The watched list works as intended when I pause the Video, or when it's finished playing.

    We'll see how the performance is after a few days. That should give Mezzmo, and the add-on time to sync up.

    Thanks again!
    The skin shouldn't make a big difference. It is mainly a mapping thing. If the addon is working properly you'll see these types of messages in your logs:

    2020-08-17 17:52:54.735 T:3877200608 NOTICE: Mezzmo sync beginning.
    2020-08-17 17:53:15.468 T:3877200608 NOTICE: Mezzmo total Kodi DB record count: 3600
    2020-08-17 17:53:15.470 T:3877200608 NOTICE: Mezzmo sync completed. 1200 videos in 0m 20s checked.

    Those will be hourly. Sometime between midnight and 1AM you will see:

    2020-08-17 00:46:26.305 T:140003518707456 NOTICE: Mezzmo sync beginning.

    This is when it does a full sync.

    Thanks again!
    If I can see the logs when you have a crash it will tell me the cause. Browsing through the playlists shouldn't cause it but I'd need to see the logs to be certain. Did you apply the Mezzmo 6.0.5.0r patch to Mezzmo ? Once Mezzmo is in sync it will disable real time updates so no database updates will be happening when you browse playlists. You can verify that in the addon settings and you should see Kodi DB actor information copy and Kodi DB change detection both disabled. When that happens the only writes from the addon are during the sync process and that will only occur if it finds a new movie or a change to an existing movie. When a change occurs it puts a message in the Kodi log file. Otherwise everything is a read function. Based upon the size of your database from the other message, it will take about 3 hours for a full sync, if you have TV episodes enabled. If not and you are still only doing movies, it should take just an hour with the sync job itself running for around 15-20 seconds.

    Yes, I saw your OP about the 6.0.5.0r requirement, and got it from support. I noticed Mezzmo reports it as 6.0.5.0, there is no "r" designation.
    but I assume that it's correctly installed.

    Last night, I was trying to use the Add-on exclusively, but had at least 3 crashes which exited Kodi.

    I stopped using the add-on, and still had one crash while viewing a TV episode. Restarted,
    and got a Kodi notice that Mezzmo add-on had crashed, Please check the log message. After that no more crashes.

    I am seeing some activity from Mezzmo in the logs, but not exactly like the ones you posted. I have not had any time today
    to mess with it, but I'm off tomorow, and plan to investigate a bit more.

    Just FYI, I did not delete my database. I thought I'd try it along side my current DB, maybe this is the issue?
    I did not see any syncing happening after 12:00AM at all. Maybe because of the add-on crash.
    Also, I noticed little, if any, increase in my DB size, so it looks like syncing id not working for me.

    As far as logs go, I don't mind you seeing them, but I don't want to post them on an open forum.

    Cheers,

    Ron,

    One other thing to mention is that you can disable the background sync process in the addon settings to do further testing. When you disable it you should see this message in the logs every hour:

    2020-08-18 20:48:45.445 T:22212 NOTICE: Mezzmo sync is disabled.

    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.0.9.7) and Kodi 19 beta
    v2.0.0.0u) have been posted on GitHub. These versions contain a number of fixes and and
    minor enhancements.


    Here's the list of enhancements and bug fixes:


    v1.0.9.7 Kodi 18

    • Fixed issue where Kodi sync setting was only being read when the addon
    starts vs. right after a setting change.
    • Added database cleanup functions on Kodi shutdown.
    • Addressed potential minor memory leak by explicitly closing database
    cursors.
    • Fixed a bug where a movie may not get inserted into the Kodi database
    due to a path conflict between a path using DNS vs. the IP address
    • Cleaned up some class deletion error messages in the Kodi logfile when
    running on the Android OS.
    • Improved sync detection and added log messages when the addon enables
    and disables real time updates automatically.


    v2.0.0.0u Kodi 19


    • Fixed issue where Kodi sync setting was only being read when the addon
    starts vs. right after a setting change.
    • Added Database cleanup functions on Kodi shutdown.
    • Addressed potential minor memory leak by explicitly closing database
    cursors.
    • Fixed a bug where a Kodi 18 call was causing the background sync
    process to crash. The Kodi 18 code was removed.
    • Fixed a bug where a movie may not get inserted into the Kodi database
    due to a path conflict between a path using DNS vs. the IP address.
    • Cleaned up some class deletion error messages in the Kodi logfile when
    running on the Android OS.
    • Improved sync detection and added log messages when the addon enables
    and disables real time updates automatically.


    There are separate links for the Kodi 18 and Kodi 19 versions. The Kodi 19 version is based upon the
    latest Kodi 18 v1.0.9.7 code.

    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.0.9.8) and Kodi 19 beta
    v2.0.0.0v) have been posted on GitHub. These versions contain a number of fixes and and
    minor enhancements.


    Here's the list of enhancements and bug fixes:


    v1.0.9.8 Kodi 18

    Fixed a bug where TV episodes might be duplicated in the Kodi database
    when a client switches between DNS and IP addresses in the path table.
    Updated movie dupe checking introduced in v1.0.9.7 to match the new
    episode dupe checking method.
    Loosened episode check to allow for the season to equal 0 in the case
    of some TV shows like Good Witch and similar.
    Added database vacuum command to daily database maintenance to keep
    Kodi database compact.
    Added daily counter reset which tracks the sync process schedule.
    Fixed a bug where a very small number of videos weren't being added to
    the Kodi database during the daily sync process due to an offset pointer
    value. This was only happening with very large Mezzmo databases and
    they were getting caught by the hourly sync process.


    v2.0.0.0v Kodi 19


    Fixed a bug where TV episodes might be duplicated in the Kodi database
    when a client switches between DNS and IP addresses in the path table.
    Updated movie dupe checking introduced in v2.0.0.0u to match the new

    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.0.9.9) and Kodi 19 beta
    v2.0.0.0w) have been posted on GitHub. These versions contain a minor bug fix and a new
    user requested feature enhancement which allows you to Mark videos as watched or
    unwatched. You will see this option in the context menu for individual videos. When clicked,
    it will update both the Kodi database and Mezzmo.


    Here's the list of enhancements and bug fixes:


    v1.0.9.9 Kodi 18

    Fixed daily sync scan counter from double counting the last 20 records
    in Mezzmo.
    Added new functionality Mezzmo Mark Watched context menu option which will
    update both the Kodi and Mezzmo databases when clicked.

    *** Important notes ***

    Mezzmo version 6.0.5.0t patch or higher is required for Mezzmo Mark Watched
    new capability. Please request from support@conceiva.com
    Kodi and Mezzmo databases need to be in sync for this to operate. The
    background sync process should enforce this but if this feature doesn't
    operate properly please check the Kodi logs.


    v2.0.0.0w Kodi 19


    Fixed daily sync scan counter from double counting the last 20 records
    in Mezzmo.
    Added new functionality Mezzmo Mark Watched context menu option which will
    update both the Kodi and Mezzmo databases when clicked.

    A special thanks to Peter for the quick turnaround on the Mezzmo patch and for Ron helping
    with the feature requirements and testing.

    Just an update for those using the Add-on with Android, and Kodi Matrix (19).

    After a bunch of testing, I have found that the following Skins worked well with this addon and Matrix Alpha 1.

    Estuary
    Confluence
    Xonfluence (with mods)

    The following Skin has some underlying problem that can cause crashing and slow load times.
    I may contact the author to see if he has any idea what's wrong.

    Rapier

    The new updates for this add-on are making a huge difference in the speed between Kodi and Mezzmo,
    and the new features are great. It's nice to have the ability to mark/unmark shows as watched in Mezzmo.


    There are some remaining bugs that are causing some strange behavior such as:

    When stopping a video (that is not completely watched), The resume point works well for a short period,
    but then the feature disappears until a restart of Kodi. I'm not sure what triggers this.
    After a restart, the feature returns for a short period then stops working again.
    This is a possible Kodi Matrix bug. Once Alpha 2 is released, I'll update with the results.

    Thanks to Jeff and Peter for all their time and effort.
