Thread: Request: More metadata, and more control of how it is displayed by DLNA clients

    Default Request: More metadata, and more control of how it is displayed by DLNA clients

    I mentioned this in the Support forum, but thought I'd log it here as an official feature request, in two parts:

    Part One:
    ---------
    I'd like to see more information imported as part of the metadata import/editing process. Specifically:

    TVShowName
    SeasonNumber
    EpisodeNumber
    Network
    MPAARating/ContentRating
    DateAired/ReleaseDate
    LibraryDateAdded

    At a minimum, these additional fields should be usable by Action and Smart Playlist logic. I use a program called "Media Center Master" to manage my XBMC .nfo metadata as a point of reference.

    Part Two:
    ----------

    As part of a Playlist's properties (as I would want the rules to be different for a playlist of TV Shows vs a playlist of Music, for example), allow customization of how the metadata fields are presented to the DLNA client, for example:

    DLNATitle = "{SeasonNumber}x{EpisodeNumber} - {Title}"
    DLNACreatedDate = "{DateAired}"

    Customization of the fields would of course be optional, with Mezzmo presenting them in its current default manner otherwise.

    These features together would GREATLY enhance the type of listing that would be possible on the clients.

    Thanks for considering!

    That would have to be implemented in your TV's firmware - most current DLNA devices do not show any extended information. Some show more, some show less.

    Lack of meta data control and options is my main bugbear with Mezzmo, now that I think I've solved my stuttering problem. It's pretty much the only reason now I'm still investigating XBMC.

    We'll be adding more metadata support soon, so then Mezzmo will be even better

    When you add support for more metadata, it would be really nice if you could add support for the <absolute_number> tag that Media Center Master adds. Some shows, like Firefly, was not sent in the "chronological" order, and it would be nice if I could sort my episodes on the absolute number for those shows rather than the broadcasted episode numbers.

    Thanks for the suggestion - we'll look into this. Can you please provide a sample that has this tag?

    Would love to see metadata support include:
    i) the ability to pull information from file structure (name and path), and
    ii) the include "Custom" field(s) in the file's properties that we could use to include keywords/tags that could be used in playlist filters.
