Thread: A small update on our Mezzmo

  1. #1

    Default A small update on our Mezzmo

    Thought I would write a small update on our use of Mezzmo since it's been put into actual service driving our two WD TV Live SMPs and multiple Android devices.

    It's been working perfectly.

    WD TV Live Gen 3 devices (and perhaps others) have a well known problem when streaming from SMB shares. The WD devices have a very annoying habit of taking (frequently) the role of Master Browser and completely messing up the network. With the media server, this ceases to be an issue. In fact, we gave each of our WD devices its own workgroup name
    and now they can be Master Browser of their own individual workgroup.

    I've seen no issues of any video type failing to play, or any subtitle issues, including the BD PGS subtitles. Although WD devices won't display PGS, Android and the MX Player handle them fine.

    Two things I would like to see added someday (these were mentioned previously)

    1. Sending a sorted playlist/folder to the renderer.

    2. Retrieving and attaching metadata to the movie/show directories. I place each movie/show in its own directory and it would be nice to see the metadata/art when the root folder is opened.

    And that's it. I tend to try and keep things simple so I'm sure a Mezzmo power-user could probably find more. But for me, those two items don't even rise to the level of real issues.

    Now, if Conceiva would add a free development or test-server only license to each license level, that would be nice too. Trying out different ideas on the primary media server is just asking for trouble.

    Hi Jim,

    Many thanks for the feedback & I'm glad Mezzmo is working well with all your devices in your home.

    Regarding the two things you would like to see:

    1. You can sort your files in playlists using most metadata attributes & Mezzmo server delivers your files in that sorted order to your devices. Right-click on the playlist/folder and click Properties to set the sort order. We are also currently working on "Play To" features where you will be able to push files and folders/playlists to your devices. These should be released in the coming months.
    2. In the upcoming Mezzmo v3.3, we have made some nice improvements for folder/playlist artwork so you should see folder artwork displayed on those devices that display artwork for folders (e.g. WD TV Live media players).
