    Hey thanks for that. I got to test it out last night and it works well, although i only want video files to be sorted that are from a specific folder.. I.e E:\Movies and sort them from A - Z. Mezzmo however picks up all the video files on my computer. Is there away to make Mezzmo only sort the video files from 1 specific folder? i tried the file name condition but then Mezzmo doesn't find any movies..
    thanks

    What did you enter in the file name condition? Can you please post a screenshot of one of those playlists' properties and I'll see if there's anything wrong.

    Thanks for the screenshot. Try changing the file path to "starts with" and see if that works. When you have "is", it means an exact match, which in case of file paths will not work, since it will try to match a single file.

    Yeah it worked. Thanks for your help, much appreciated.
    Quick question, any idea on when the next major update might be?
    cheers

    *update*
    i just checked the 0-9 playlist and that still seems to be grabbing videos from other drives and folders, would you know why that is?
    thanks

    I'm glad it's working Sorry, can't give an official ETA on any major releases. The next minor update should be out within the next couple of days.

    Does it have the same attributes? Does it use a "match any"? If it does, then any condition is matched, so that'll explain it. The only way to fix it at the moment is to actually create separate lists for each digit. We'll be allowing more flexibility in creating smart playlists in one of the future versions, so then you'll be able to create various combinations of conditions.

    yeah its 'matched to any' because if i set it to 'match all' wouldn't it look for file names that start with 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 etc? all at the start of the name?

    Yes, that's why you need to create discrete playlists for each of those digits (at the moment, as I said in the future you'll be able to combine things better).

    A quick (dirty?) way of solving the issue of items that have Numbers in their title (e.g. 2012, 3:10 To Yuma) is to (ab)use the Album field.
    1. Prefix the field with a non-alphabetic character like '#'
    2. Create a Smart Playlist named '#' or '0-9'
    3. The rules are as before, but use '<Album> <starts with> <#>'

    Because the Title is unchanged, the displayed list should omit the '#' character.
