    Hi Jeff,

    The latest release (n) is a few seconds faster.

    My TV shows, Documentaries, and Concerts folders are now loading within 1-2 seconds; very nice.

    My two movie folders are opening a few seconds faster than before. (takes about 9 seconds to load ~300 movies, was about 12 seconds before).

    Nice improvement for sure.

    Thanks for your hard work,

    Ron

    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.0.9.1) and Kodi 19 beta
    v2.0.0.0o) have been posted on GitHub. These versions contain a number of database changes
    to allow the addon to differentiate between movies and TV episodes.

    Here's the list of enhancements and bug fixes:


    v1.0.9.1 Kodi 18

    • Fixed issue with Kodi database cache clearing where not all records
    in the cache table associated with Mezzmo were being deleted.
    • Improved handling of TV Episodes in the Kodi database so that they
    now appear as TV episodes vs. movies, with the proper season, episode
    and similar information when an actor search is performed.
    *** If the Add TV Episodes option has previously been enabled a
    Kodi database clear on startup is required to repopulate with
    the proper tags. ***


    v2.0.0.0o Kodi 19

    • Fixed issue with Kodi database cache clearing where not all records
    in the cache table associated with Mezzmo were being deleted.
    • Improved handling of TV Episodes in the Kodi database so that they
    now appear as TV episodes vs. movies, with the proper season, episode
    and similar information when an actor search is performed.
    *** If the Add TV Episodes option has previously been enabled a
    Kodi database clear on startup is required to repopulate with
    the proper tags. ***


    There are separate links for the Kodi 18 and Kodi 19 versions. The Kodi 19 version is based upon the
    latest Kodi 18 v1.0.9.1 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.

    These releases should be the last changes for a bit unless a bug is reported. There are no new features
    on the request list. When Kodi 19 is officially released the version numbering will be better aligned.

    Feedback and feature requests are always welcome.

    Thanks Ron. I appreciate the feedback. I am thinking longer term about the database sync activity being a background process vs. real time as you open playlists. That's a bit more coding effort. I do have a question. If you disable the change detection option but leave actor copy and caching enabled, how does that change the performance numbers above ? I believe some of the performance is greatly impacted by the individual device CPU processing power and storage type for the Kodi database. I don't have an nVidia Shield to test with.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.0.9.2) and Kodi 19 beta
    v2.0.0.0p) have been posted on GitHub. These versions contain a minor bug fix.



    v1.0.9.2 Kodi 18

    • Fixed bug introduced in v1.0.9.1 which would cause invalid metadata
    changes to be detected in TV episodes. The only impacts were a slight
    slowness loading large TV episode playlists and erroneous Kodi log
    messages stating that a metadata change was detected.


    v2.0.0.0p Kodi 19

    • Fixed bug introduced in v2.0.0.0o which would cause invalid metadata
    changes to be detected in TV episodes. The only impacts were a slight
    slowness loading large TV episode playlists and erroneous Kodi log
    messages stating that a metadata change was detected.

    latest Kodi 18 v1.0.9.2 code.

    Default Background Tasking Feedback Request

    Ive been testing some early background tasking code for the Kodi addon. Before I get too far into development in this area Id like to get some feedback on what folks might be interested in and a better understanding on how folks use their Kodi clients.

    I am looking at 3 potential features for background processing:

    Loading the remaining TV episodes for a series whenever you click on a TV episode for the first time. Currently the Kodi database only gets updates with the episodes in the playlist you are browsing. As you browse more seasons it gets updated.
    Checking existing movies in the Kodi database to see if they have been deleted from Mezzmo or if there are any metadata or codec changes . Right now the only way to delete a movie in the Kodi database that has been removed from Mezzmo is with a database clear function. Metadata and codec changes are currently detected at playlist browse time if the feature is enabled in the addon options.
    Full Mezzmo and Kodi database synchronization.

    One of the big questions around any background tasks and the timing of the tasks is understanding whether folks generally leave their devices powered on when not watching video content or whether you turn them off. Kodi provides the ability to background task only when videos arent playing to avoid impacting the performance of the device but the devices need to be powered on for background tasks to run.

    I am curious to get feedback on the features above and your current usage. Also if there are any other similar features you might be interested in seeing.


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.0.9.3) and Kodi 19 beta
    v2.0.0.0p) have been posted on GitHub. These versions contain bug fixes found during bulk
    synchronization testing between Mezzmo and Kodi using ~12,000 files in a single update.


    v1.0.9.3 Kodi 18

    Fixed 2 bugs found in streamdetails change detection and title checking
    during bulk Mezzmo/Kodi sync testing which would cause Kodi not to be
    updated with Mezzmo data when browsing playlists and would abort the
    upcoming Mezzmo / Kodi sync process feature.
    Updated TV Episode dupe checking to match on series name, season and
    episode. This eliminates duplicates in the Kodi database due to episode
    naming and display title differences across playlists.


    v2.0.0.0q Kodi 19

    Fixed 3 bugs found in streamdetails change detection and title checking
    during bulk Mezzmo/Kodi sync testing which would cause Kodi not to be
    updated with Mezzmo data when browsing playlists and would abort the
    upcoming Mezzmo / Kodi sync process feature.
    Updated TV Episode dupe checking to match on series name, season and
    episode. This eliminates duplicates in the Kodi database due to episode
    naming and display title differences across playlists.


    There are separate links for the Kodi 18 and Kodi 19 versions. The Kodi 19 version is based upon the
    latest Kodi 18 v1.0.9.3 code.
