    Default 2 Requests: movie information import by script & choise of audio stream

    This are just two ideas, don't know if one or both are useful to other users or even possible to implement.

    The first is to use (semi-)automatic import scripts for information from sites like imdb.com , since it is very unpractical to do this by hand for a whole movie collection.
    Maybe you could have a look at the tool "Ant Movie Catalog", it has solved this very good.

    The other thing is probably not possible but would be very practical. My Samsung LE40c579 only plays the first audio track and there is not option to select the second one.
    So if I have a movie with multiple audio tracks for different languages I either have to remux it each time or I have to keep multiple copies.
    Is it possible to make Mezzmo stream not the first but one of the other audio tracks to the TV ?

    Thank you for the suggestions.

    Actually both of them are planned and the first one is pretty much already implemented - just need more testing. The second one will be coming when the next major update is released (along with subtitles).

    Hey there's another thing I have recognized. Mezzmo has problems adding films to an active playlist with a modified-date older than 1973, can you fix this please in one of the next releases? Thx.

    Do you mean the Year tag or the actual file modified date (from the OS)? Can you please describe in a bit more detail what the problem is and we'll try to reproduce it here.

    I have used a batch tool that changed the file modified date from the OS of all video files/movies to its release date, so that when I add them to Mezzmo the Year tag is automatically set correctly. This worked fine for all movies not older than 1973.

    Did you add the files to Mezzmo before or after running that batch? If the files were already in the database, then you'll need to run Maintenance to update the information.

    First I run the batch, then I added them. I know this problem is kind of curious, but it's a practical solution, for example if I run Maintenance with option to update all files and overwrite existing information, all movies have still the correct date, except the movies older than 1970.
    I've done some testing and found out it's 1970 and not 1973, also I have taken some screenshots which explain the problem good.
    I hope I don't bother you, but I think it's a pity that this almost perfect tool has this little bug .

    Here is a link to ths screenshot, if I attach it to this post it will be resized.

    Thank you for pointing this out. I understand what the problem is now - the functions that Mezzmo uses to get file time are actually limited in that they can only retrieve dates after January 1st, 1970. Actually Windows won't let you set the computer date to be prior to that either.

    What does the Windows Explorer show for those dates?

    Explorer shows no date for all files older than 1980 in the file properties and in the column for "modified date" of the detailed view.
    In the column which is simply titled with "date" and which shows usually the modified date too, it shows the creation date instead.

    Yes, that basically confirms that it's not really valid to set those dates to be prior 1970. Is there a specific reason you'd want to set the Modified date? I mean, in Mezzmo we have a "Year" attribute that can be used to specify the year of the movie.
