Thread: Playlist no longer plays next file in list in loop

  1. #1

    Default Playlist no longer plays next file in list in loop

    Hi, This problem has arisen in the last few days. My playlists will no longer play the next file automatically on the andoid app on Fire TV. I have the loop option selected, but no joy. It just returns to the list of files, when one video has finished. I have not made any changes to the andoid app, other than to reinstall it to try and rectify the issue. The only difference in the last few days, is that I upgraded to Mezzmo Pro, and thats when the trouble seems to have started. Even playing a single video, when finished, throw me all the way back to the server screen, instead of the folder I'm currently viewing. Very strange. I have hunted evrywhere for a possible cause, but cant find anything. I rely heavily on playlists on the Fire TV android app on a loop, as my partners snoring would wake the dead, so I wear a bluetooth headband, listening to Mezzmo Android going through an entire playlist continuosly and reloop again at the end, its been a life saver. Bit dissapointed with the pro version to be honest. I mainly got it to stream outside the home network, and add some functions, but despite following detailed instructions, I cant get that to work either. Any suggestions, gratefully received.

    Hi,
    are you using the internal video player in the Mezzmo app or have you unchecked the box to use the internal video player in the app settings? It sound like the main activity state of the Mezzmo app is being lost after playing a video due to the Android system reclaiming memory and not allowing the activity to keep running in the background. Have you changed any system settings on the Fire TV?

    I am using mx player, I think I've solved the playlist problem, but I tried so many different options I cannot remember which one did the trick! It also deleted a large selection of the folder I was viewing last night, I restored it this morning on the PC server. I even did a repair install. It still seems to lose server details on android after playing a file on its own though. It forgets the server its connected to, Ive tried the sticky thing, but that keeps disappearing. Ive even replaced and upgraded the ethernet cable connecting them. It jumps back to the server select screen, it wont remember or disconnects the main mezzmo server coming from the pc. Many thanks for your suggestions. How do I stop android reclaiming memory and not allowing running in the background? Also whats the optimum device profile for Fire TV? Thanks again.

    The profile to use is Conceiva Mezzmo (Android). Please try using the internal Mezzmo app video player by going to settings and checking the box for using the internal video player and this should resolve the issue and keep the Mezzmo app in memory.

    Many thanks, I'll give it a go, as it kept crashing last night. So, I'll go for internal app video.

    I have isolated it to the android app, having reinstalled both server and app, but still getting the same problems. Is there a beta version of the Android app I could try, running on Amazon Fire TV?

    Many thanks

    Hi Jon,
    I don't have a Fire TV device here to test it and there is currently no beta version to try. The playlist is stored in the Mezzmo application class which remains active while the video player is playing so upon returning to the app after playing the current video so it should be able to play the next file from there. Does the app still return to the top of the library with no server selected when playing using the Internal video player?

    It now doing it intermittently, I even tried using a different media server, but it only seems to be certain playlists (not all) that are affected. Which makes me think it could be a decoder/codec problem file related or something. I have tried internal player and mxplayer, on which I cant get the custom codec installed like I used to. Maybe my Firetv is becoming outdated, I'm pretty much out of ideas. I noticed a Mezzmo update dropped last night, so that may have an effect. Thank you for your response. Jon

    I was able to go to the office on Tuesday and grabbed a Fire TV so I will do some testing here to try and reproduce the issue.

    Make sure you have the setting checked "Queue all videos in current folder when playing" in the Mezzmo app's settings
