    Default V2.6 Database showing duplicate Video files under Playlists

    Hi,
    I've just noticed that I am seeing a lot of duplicated Video files when viewing the library through Smart or Active Playlist views. Not every file shows up twice, but a lot do.

    The files are located on a NAS and the difference is simply the file path to discriminate between the two e.g.
    Entry 1 : \\Nas\Multimedia\\1.Films\Drama\127 Hours.avi
    Entry 2 : \\Nas\Multimedia\1.Films\Drama\127 Hours.avi


    i.e. SOME entries have an extra backslash. I'm using Win 7 x64 and \\NAS\Multimedia is a mapped network drive to Z:.

    In Folder view there is no duplication.

    This was a clean 2.6 install dollowed by an upgrade to 2.6.1. I have run Maintenance under 2.6 and 2.6.1 both with and without 'Update all files' and all with and without 'Remove media files....'

    Does the mapped drive [Z:] definition in Windows Explorer have the extra backslash? i.e. \\Nas\Multimedia\\? If it does, then remove the extra backslash in your mapped drive definition. Then remove this folder from Mezzmo (along with the files). Next, add the mapped drive/folder back into Mezzmo and hopefully that cleans it all up for you. Mezzmo converts mapped drives into full UNC paths when you add your folder into your Mezzmo library and that's what Windows tells Mezzmo your mapped drive points to.

    I do have the same problem and my drive is not a shared drive it is USB connected to the PC and there is not any extra backslash in Windows Explorer.
    And I se the dublicates in the 'all video files' folder.
    I have write about this problem some time earlier but dont get any solution.

    Hi Erik - I am happy to re-open your issue and try to resolve it. Can you tell me the full path for two files in "All Video" that are duplicates?

    Here are examples.
    I:\Animation_A-F\BALTO_1.mpg
    I:\\Animation_A-F\BALTO_1.mpg
    H:\.......
    H:\\.........
    The only difference is the extra backslash.
    It is almost every files that are duplicated, about 1000

    Paul,
    the definition of the mapped drive does NOT have an extra backslash. I attach a screen shot of the output of 'net use' - Capture.PNG.

    My question is really not so much 'Why is there 2 backslashes?' but more 'Why do some entries have 2 backslashes whilst the majority have just one and are therefore not duplicated?' The files were in place BEFORE Mezzmo was installed.

    If it helps, I could try uninstalling Mezzmo and then install 2.6.1 directly. I could then see if the duplicates appear before or after a DB maintenance - or indded if at all?

    Bodders & Erik, Many thanks for the follow-up information. We'll do some testing here to try to reproduce the problem. Bodders - if you want to start from a fresh Mezzmo database, that would be helpful for us to know if v2.6.1 does create the duplicates before or after maintaining the library. Thanks for offering to do this.

    OK - will do that today.

    BTW - have just noticed that in ...\Appdata\Local\Conceiva there is a Mezzmo.db (52kb) , MezzmoTranscode.db (15kb) and mezzmoMediaServer.ini. All dated 19/05/2012. These same files are ALSO in the sub-folder mezzmo - Mezzmo.db is 32MB and 21/05, Mezzmotranscode is 15kb and 21/05, MezzmoMediaServer.ini and 17/05.

    The INI files are different i.e. \Appdata\Local\Conceiva\mezzmo\MezzmoMediaServer.i ni is :-
    [Transcoding]
    FFmpegPath=C:\Program Files (x86)\Conceiva\Mezzmo\
    TranscodingFolder=C:\Users\******\AppData\Local\Co nceiva\Mezzmo\TranscodingFiles
    [DB]
    FileName=C:\Users\*******\AppData\Local\Conceiva\M ezzmo\Mezzmo.db
    Port=53168
    UseFolderJPGForVideo=0
    PlaycountPercent=20
    DeliverOnlyFoldersInRoot=1
    DetectIPhone=0
    Name=Mezzmo
    [General]
    StartupMode=0

    whilst \Appdata\Local\Conceiva\Mezzmomediaserver.ini only has:-

    [DB]
    FileName=C:\Users\Mark\AppData\Local\Conceiva\Mezz mo.db

    Could it be that the two sets of DB files are giving rise to the duplicated entries i.e. a merged view?

    Thanks for reporting this. We'll check it out & fix it. However, I am confident that it will not be the reason for the duplicates.

    Some more info.
    I have seen that new added files is not duplicated.
    Then I tryed to run a total library maintain, after this all files are now duplicated.
    The status when running is counting all the files two times.
    In 'library properties' the 'number of files' is duble as many as I have.
