    I went into Mezzmo and categorized the suspect file and all is ok, the suspect file and all the other files appear correctly.

    So the .60 did not do what you expected? If the file isn't categorized then all files (not folders) do not show in the list.

    Ok, So it is only failing if the category is blank ? I didn't test for that scenario. I'll take a look.

    Yes it appears so.

    I uncategorized that file and again the regular files did not show in the list after a 'Refresh'.

    Perhaps Mezzmo builds the list but if one file is not categorized then the building fails and none show.

    Ok. I have a fix for when the category is blank. I thought I was catching it with 2.1.6.0 but realized I wasn't checking for it being empty. I'll push out 1.1.6.1 and 2.1.6.1 in the morning. In the mean time if you want to download it it here as v1.2.6.0a to ensure it fixes the issue. Click on Code and then Download to download the file.


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Thanks for helping with this. I've spent more time with this section of code and realized it needed some work. This is some pretty old code with some limitations like if a video had multiple categories it would only find the first one, even if a better category was number 2 or 3 in the list. When I added the native mode moviset support in 2.1.5.8 I only complicated the code logic.

    I've updated the entire code section, simplified and streamlined it, keeping the fix you tested. I've got a bit more testing to do and if everything goes Ok I will push it out as 2.1.6.1 later today.

    To your earlier comments on how this works, when you browse a playlist Mezzmo sends a list of titles and all associated metadata to the Mezzmo Kodi addon. The addon then parses each item one by one, folders first and then individual items. If an exception failure occurs, like we saw, then the addon stops iterating the list from Mezzmo and displays however far it got through the list. In this case I presume the video you had issues with was the first item in the list. Otherwise it should have displayed items with a proper category before it hit a blank one and got an exception.

    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.1.6.1) and
    Kodi v19+ (v2.1.6.1) have been posted on GitHub. These versions fix a bug
    introduced in v1.1.5.8 / 2.1.5.8 of code which could cause some videos not
    to display properly while browsing your library. They also improve the recently
    added feature which allows manually adding servers.

    A big thanks to Ian for identifying and troubleshooting the category bug.


    v1.1.6.1 Kodi 18

    • Fixed bug introduced in v2.1.5.8 that would cause videos not to be
    displayed if Kodi was not in sync with Mezzmo and the category type
    was not set to movie or TV Show.
    • Further improvement of the category type code to simplify the logic,
    better handle multiple categories for a video and fix issue that would
    cause items not to displayed if the category was blank for a video.
    • Added check for improperly formatted or missing duration in Mezzmo
    that could cause an exception error and videos not to display
    • Improved manual IP server additions to include the ability to use
    nonstandard ports and certain non-Mezzmo servers.


    v2.1.6.1 Kodi 19+

    • Fixed bug introduced in v2.1.5.8 that would cause videos not to be
    displayed if Kodi was not in sync with Mezzmo and the category type
    was not set to movie or TV Show.
    • Further improvement of the category type code to simplify the logic,
    better handle multiple categories for a video and fix issue that would
    cause items not to displayed if the category was blank for a video.
    • Added check for improperly formatted or missing duration in Mezzmo
    that could cause an exception error and videos not to display
    • Improved manual IP server additions to include the ability to use
    nonstandard ports and certain non-Mezzmo 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 v1.1.6.1 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.


    You can find more information on the native mode operation on the Wiki page. Note that when you first enable
    native mode you will need to wait until the addon completes a daily sync cycle to update some of the Kodi data
    format in order to properly display metadata. You can also clear the Mezzmo data in the Kodi DB if you would
    like to speed up the process. Once a complete sync cycle has occurred everything should operate as expected.

    For those interested in Kodi Nexus compatibility the Kodi 19 version has been updated to support the Nexus
    database numbering scheme but full testing hasn't occurred. This is planned for the near future.

    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

    Everyone,

    One of the goals with the Mezzmo Kodi addon is to make things as easy and automated as possible
    to improve the overall Kodi experience. With that in mind and seeing some comments in the Kodi forums,
    I am contemplating adding a new feature called Quick Play. The concept is to add a context menu item
    which would allow quick access to your favorite videos and have it driven by special Mezzmo Keywords
    (i.e. Kodi tags). The concept is similar to existing addons like Super Favorites and such but a bit automated
    where the feature would sync all Kodi clients automatically and potentially not require another addon. It
    wouldn't be as full featured as Super Favorites and similar types of addons, for those who need all of their
    capabilities but for those wanting a simple, integrated way to quickly launch their videos, this Quick Play
    feature may be enough.

    I've mocked up a proposal on what it might the feature might look like.

    Please click here to see the Quick Play Proposal.

    Feedback is most welcome.


    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Kodi v19+ (v2.1.6.2) have been posted on GitHub. These versions contain a couple
    of fixes and a few enhancements. In addition the Wiki page continues to be
    updated with a lot of new content. Feedback on the Wiki page is welcome.


    v1.1.6.2 Kodi 18

    Removed Kodi from manual uPNP server additions due to random port usage.
    Kodi uPNP servers will still be discovered via the automatic process.
    Fixed bug where bookmarks were being set / cleared for the underlying
    movies when their trailers were being played.
    Improved usability where addon GUI would restart after native mode
    search was completed. Native mode search completion now goes back to
    native mode menu.
    Added new Diagnostics settings section with options for temporary server
    response logging to aid in troubleshooting Mezzmo and uPNP XML metadata
    responses. The settings will disable after an optional number of server
    responses to avoid overly expanding the Kodi.log file size.

    An updated version of the Mezzmo Kodi addon for both Kodi v18 (v1.1.6.3) and
    Kodi v19+ (v2.1.6.3) have been posted on GitHub. These versions contain a minor
    enhancement and v2.1.6.3 is focused on supporting Kodi 20, Nexus. Initial testing
    with the Alpha 2 release has been completed and two modifications were needed.
    Additional Nexus testing will occur as the beta and production processes occur.


    v1.1.6.3 Kodi 18

    Improved the reliability of the SSDP automatic server discovery process
    and standardized the code between Kodi 18 and 19 versions.


    v2.1.6.3 Kodi 19+

    Improved the reliability of the SSDP automatic server discovery process
    and standardized the code between Kodi 18 and 19 versions.
    Initial fixes for Kodi Nexus 20 Alpha 2 release. Fixed video database
    numbering and Mezzmo addon automatic update repository format.
    Added support for new Kodi 20 feature which disables native mode Mezzmo
    context menu when native mode sync setting is disabled. With Kodi 19
    the Mezzmo context menu is always presented in native mode operation.

    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

    Hi Jeff,

    I got a few questions about Nexus if I may.

    Is it possible to migrate from 19 to 20, or do we need to start over?

    Have you noticed any performance improvement over 19?

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

    Thanks!
