    Default Automatic Library Update

    I use Tversity and Mezzmo.
    Tversity fails to properly transcode some files which Mezzmo easily handles. +1 for Mezzmo.
    But Tveristy allows me to configure it to automatically update every hour. I like this because a frequent use of my media server is downloading and watch TV shows during the course of an evening.
    Unless I am missing something, Mezzmo does not have an automatic update feature and I have to run back to the PC to update as new shows are downloaded.
    I assume this would not be complicated to add.
    If it is altready there, please advise.
    Thanks.

    Hi keiser,

    If you download files regularly, or the contents of a folder on your computer changes regularly, then I would recommend you add a folder into your Mezzmo library. Click "Add To Library" -> "Add Folder" and select the folder that contains your files. Mezzmo reads this folder every time you access it (either from your DLNA device or in your Mezzmo application). So, it will show any new files that have been added to the folder on your computer or remove files from the list that have been deleted from the folder on your computer. This means it is truly dynamic and you do not need to do a library update every hour, etc.

    Also, Mezzmo does let you maintain your Mezzmo library (click Maintain Library to do this). In this dialog you can also set a daily schedule to run maintenance if you wish.

    Mezzmo Android: Install it on your tablet, smartphone, Android TV or Amazon Fire to browse and stream files from your Mezzmo library to all your devices. Full details at http://www.conceiva.com/products/mez...mo_android.asp
    Mezzmo for Kodi Add-on: Install it into Kodi to stream files from your Mezzmo library directly in Kodi. Full details at http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...odi_user_guide
    Mezzmo for Roku App: Install it onto your Roku to stream files from your Mezzmo library. Full details at http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...oku_user_guide

    I am aware of the daily update but that doesn't help me in the course of an evenig.
    I was not aware of the dynmaic feature and will add a folder. If that works, all problems solved.
    Thank you.
