Thread: Resume - from last point of play ; each file

  1. #1

    Default Resume - from last point of play ; each file

    title. resume feature. start a video file from the last point played.

    Not sure this would work well with the dlna spec. Would be nice to have popup asking to resume but not sure dlna streaming could support this.

    Hi,
    resume functions like this are device dependent, we have an idea on how to make Mezzmo play the file from the position it was last streamed so we may implement this after Mezzmo 3.0 is released (possibly Mezzmo 3.1 or later).

    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

    Some devices even allow the writing of a resume file. I know the WDTV Live supports this feature.

    see here.

    Still using 2 of the old models so this would be a great feature. For all players

    I believe that Mezzmo could implement this as a server side feature. The client does not need to know that you are doing it. Some of the changes are keeping the current status in the DB. For example:

    Total movie length 127 minutes.
    User1 watches movie 1 on front room set for 97 minutes. When they stop the db is updated to include 97 minutes on Front room set.
    User 2 watches movie 1 on bedroom set for 22 minutes. When they stop the db is updated to include 22 minutes on bedroom set.

    Later if User1 wants to continue the movie they use either a playlist continue movie that lists all the movies to continue or (better) when they scroll to the movie they get a submenu that lists Start from beginning. Continue from bedroom view (22min) and Continue from Front room view (97 min). The server would keep track of the movies, play times and media device used (by name). It would simply tell the device I have these X number of films that met your spec. The Media device would not know (or care) that you were continuing a movie. Having it contain the device would allow you to continue on any other (compatible or transcodable) device. Once the movie has been played all the way through the db should remove that listing.

    Thanks for the idea, JohnM. Makes sense and we'll certainly consider it.
