Thread: Removing the Year sub-playlist from videos

  1. #1

    Default Removing the Year sub-playlist from videos

    Hi

    I am using the default Videos playlist. I don't like my movies being sub-categorised by Year. Is it possible to stop Mezzmo from doing that and removing the Year sub-category completely?

    Thanks in advance

    All playlists in Mezzmo can be changed or removed or you can easily create your own new playlists.

    To remove the 'Year' playlist, select it in the tree in Mezzmo and press the DEL key. When prompted, click Yes (don't select the checkbox to also delete all your files in the Year playlist).

    Hi and thanks for the prompt response, sorry for responding so late...

    The Year playlist is a sub-playlist, not a primary one. Also I tried deleting one but nothing happened. This is my library tree and the Video playlist:

    Try running Maintain Library and this should update the active playlist for you. Normally you do not have to do this, but it seems your active playlist was not updated automatically for some reason.

    Understand. Next, I'd suggest you delete the active playlist (select it in the tree in Mezzmo and press DEL key) and then recreate it again. That should get it working. When deleting your active playlist, don't choose to delete your files also (i.e. just delete the playlist).

    No - when you delete a playlist/folder, the default action is to only delete the playlist/folder itself not the files contained inside it. You will be prompted to also remove the files inside the playlist/folder if you wish.

    Thank you but sorry I don't understand

    It is the metadata I'm concerned about, I understand I can elect not to delete the actual files when I delete a playlist. Are you suggesting I delete the Library\Video tree as per the screenshot above? Isn't that what holds all metadata??

    Sorry - I was not clear. Your Mezzmo library contains entries for files and playlists/folders. The entries for files hold all the metadata about files (such as title, album, artist, description, artwork, etc.). The entries for playlists/folders simply contain pointers to files. So, deleting a playlist just deletes the playlist entry and does not touch the files or metadata for the files.

    I was suggesting that you delete the 'Genre' active playlist since this playlist is not working properly (i.e. it has year sub-playlists when it should not). So, click on 'Genre' playlist in the tree in Mezzmo and press DEL key. Click 'Yes' to confirm the deletion. Now create a new Genre playlist. Click on 'Video' in the tree in Mezzmo. Click 'Create Playlist' -> 'Active Playlist'. On the Active Playlist Properties dialog, type 'Genre' into the Playlist name edit box. Next, click Add -> Genre and then select the 'Video files' radio button. Click OK and you should have a new Genre playlist under Video.
