    Hi Pavlov,

    Thanks for the screenshot. I can see you have the 'Music' tab at the bottom of the tree in Mezzmo selected. When selected, this is searching for all you music files in your Mezzm olibrary and only shows them - which can take a little time depending on the size of your Mezzmo library. If you select the 'All' tab at the bottom of the tree in Mezzmo, then all folders/playlists/files will be displayed & it will be much faster. Let us know how you go.

    Thanks but I think the problem required more drastic measures...

    I finally managed to do a complete uninstall with Revo uninstaller followed by a clean install.

    After rescanning all media everything is back to normal. Mezzmo and computer don't freeze up when I scan media files and photo folder contains only photos found in My Pictures instead of multiple copies of album artwork.

    Now I'd like to figure out how to play my entire music collection or selected genres randomly on my Oppo BDP-93. This is very easy to do with my Squeezebox Touch and Logitech Media Server - I just check the genres I want ans press "Play random songs" The thing is that the sound of the Oppo's S/PDIF output is better than the Touch's when feeding my DAC.

    Great that you are up and running now, Pavlov. We'll look into the issues you mention and try to reproduce them here.

    With regards playing your music, on your Oppo connect to Mezzmo server and browse to the Music playlist. Then browse to the Genre playlist and select the Genre you prefer and play the songs listed there. Mezzmo does not yet have random playback - this is typically a feature of your DLNA media player (i.e. your Oppo). We are looking at adding random playlists into Mezzmo for a future version.

    If you don't like the default playlists that Mezzmo creates when you install it, then you can create your own. In Mezzmo, click on the Music playlist in the tree, and then click 'Create Playlist' and choose the type of playlist you would like. For example, choose 'Smart Playlist' and enter the search criteria for the smart playlist. For example, File type is Music and Genre = rock and Year is in the range 1980 to 1989 to create a list of all rock music from the 1980s.
