    Default Enhacements for playlists such as Last Played

    If mezzmo tracked when each item was last played, we can create smart playlists that:
    Show the last 10 videos that were played (kids always want to watch the same thing a few times)
    Show what videos have not been viewed (would be enhanced with random sort feature: see below)

    Also, add a option to sort a playlist randomly and you can have it reshuffle every time the library is maintained. If you want to limit this to smart/active playlists, then to recreate the same effect, add an option for smart/active playlists to limit its pool to a particular folder/subfolder.

    Flatten folder playlist option so all files from subfolders appear in the root.

    My Samsung LN52B750 TV will automatically play the next media in the same folder. This is annoying and I rather have an option to have it stop after each one. I don't know if this is a client or server feature, but can this be solved on the server-side? Perhaps add an option to playlist prevent continuous playback?

    Thank you for the suggestions.

    Last played feature is on our development to-do list and it'll find it's way into the next major update, hopefully.

    Re-sorting a playlist randomly is a neat idea and I'll add that for future development as well.

    You can create a smart playlist to have a flat structure with all the files matching a certain criteria in one playlist. Another option (if we're talking about Active playlists) is to uncheck the "Deliver only folders in root" from the Media Server Settings dialog - that will deliver files as well then.

    Regarding playing next media automatically - the TV does that and there's no way we can prevent it. There has to be a setting on the TV to change that - I know there's such a setting on our C-series here, for example.

    In Mezzmo I have columns named "Play Count" and "Last Played", but these are always empty. Have you implemented that feature and it is not working properly for me, or is the implementation still missing?

    No, it's not implemented yet, but should be with the next major update. Once it's active, then this will work.

    It should be available with the next major update - scheduled in the Q1 of 2011. Basically it should appear at the same time as we introduce server feedback into the GUI.

    Just to let you know - Mezzmo v2.4 has just been released. It includes the "Play Count" attribute for files that is auto-incremented whenever Mezzmo streams a file. You can use play count in your smart playlists to list files last played, never played, etc. View or change the play count for a file using the Properties dialog in Mezzmo. Full release notes are at http://www.conceiva.com/products/mezzmo/whatsnew.asp
