    Hi, - I was the original poster, but got side tracked by a new born !

    This is getting closer to what I wanted to achieve - infact the 'title' naming in the path allows me to only show the DVD rips.... but what I wanted was to show all my main movies in the same smart list.
    So, for example my avi/mkv and main DBD rips movies (with title) etc from multiple folders combined in one smart play list.

    .... so what I really want is a filter which shows all main movies 'except' those shorter VOB files (so I don't have 25 entries for the same film)
    Any thoughts on how to do this simply ?

    Perhaps you could add [Duration] [is greater than] [01:00:00] to your smart playlist and this would restrict the playlist to list only those videos with a duration of greater than 1 hour (or whatever duration value you specify). This would remove the shorter, unwanted VOB files.

    The time limit was no good as all the different films and clips are all different lengths, so missed / selected ones I didn't want.

    However - based on your explanation that the filename for the gapless multi files is not the 'real filename'.. I did this:

    1) File path contains videos (to only get my rips instead of all the films that come with albums etc
    2) File Name does not contain vts_
    3) File Name does not contain video_ts

    This seems to work for me and still includes the gapless multi main films (as the filename is not the real filename)...... as far as I can see with limited testing.

    Glad you worked out a set of smart playlist rules that covers your movies

    Hi Paul,

    Don't know if its a 3.4.2 thing, but the Smart Playlist thing you gave me using the #title function (see earlier in the post), isn't working properly any more, see image...

    Screenshot (5).jpg-

    Mezzmo also seems to be ignoring the dvd's/vobs it shows quite happily under the folders\DVD's Full Copy item - they don't show up under Directors/Gendre etc. Have tried maintaining the library and every box is ticked under the metadata retrieval box thingy. Any ideas ?

    Thanks very much

    We have fixed the issue where your files don't show up on Director/Genre/etc. This will be included the Mezzmo v3.4.3.0 release that should be released later this week.

    Regarding your smart playlist, take a screenshot of the Smart playlist Properties dialog so I can see the smart playlist rules that you have defined.

    Its supposed to be the one you gave me on page 1 of this post. Am sure there's something obvious in there somewhere, just not to me....

    Thanks again

    The smart playlist appears to be working (i.e. listing your DVD video titles), but the names of the titles do not appear to be correct. Instead of "vts_01_1", it should be like "101 Dalmatians". Do you have "Use filename as titles" checkbox turned on in the Metadata Retrieval Settings dialog? This setting is the most likely reason for titles like this.

    If the smart playlist is not working as it should, let us know in more detail what is wrongly listed.

    Hi,

    Yes, 'Use filenames as titles' is selected, actually, every box is ticked for both video and folder tabs.

    Not sure about the more detail bit - in the previous screenshot, with the vts_01_1 names, all the files are named like that, though technically by the time I get to the bottom of the list, its up to vts_43_01.
    If I look at them under the Folders\DVD's Full Copy item, they are all named as expected from the folder name.
    Maybe I have too many boxes ticked (except I want the metadata for the Director/Gendre etc but with the actual name and picture from my computer) ? or maybe I should wait for 3.4.3 ?

    Thanks
