Thread: Mezzmo App wish list

  1. #1

    Default Mezzmo App wish list

    Please make it so that I can connect to server over 3g/4g

    then, can I get video stream with transcode so I won't see much lag?

    like the airvdeo for IOS.

    I can connect to server through VPN, but videos are not transcoded so file is large and has so much lag..

    Thanks

    You can decrease the video bitrate of your transcoded files using the following settings:

    • Edit your device in the Media Devices dialog. On the Device Settings dialog, set the Connection setting to the lowest bandwidth connection type (i.e. Wireless B). This tells Mezzmo the maximum permitted bandwidth when transcoding files.
    • Go to the Performance tab on the Device Settings dialog and move the Video bitrate slider to (say) halfway. This tells Mezzmo to further reduce the video bitrate when transcoding files. You can adjust this further by trial and error.
    • Go to the Advanced tab on the Device Settings dialog, and change the "Deliver media files supported by the device" to "Never Deliver". This tells Mezzmo to transcode natively supported files.

    Can you tell me how to connect to server via 3g/4g?

    I don't want to connect to vpn everytime I want to watch video

    That's more important than bit rate

    Sorry - not sure how to do this without a VPN. Perhaps some other users can provide some advice.

    That's where you come in.

    as for the main mezzmo program create setting that allow external connection using some other ports

    for the app create a setting on the app so user can find server by IP address and port.

    Hello,
    first i would like to say that Mezzmo is a great app.
    But for further improvement i miss some features as follows:

    - app should save last icon size when reloaded
    - modern and coloured icons
    - better optimisation for tablets
    - jump direct to details view by clicking video file or other media types instead of long press and then to click more details
    - when start playing a music title the app should go direct to now playing
    - option to use app over Internet
    - option to load backdrops (over mezzmo server) from music artists and from movies (from internet or from mymovies)
    - option to change colour of the theme like light for example

    So these points are my wishes after using the app since some weeks.
    Thanks in advance
    Christian

    Hi Christian,

    Thanks for the suggestions for our Mezzmo Android app. We'll add them to our development task list.

    - jump direct to details view by clicking video file or other media types instead of long press and then to click more details
    If you touch the file's artwork/icon, then it will go directly to DETAILS mode. If you touch the file's text it will play it.

    - option to load backdrops (over mezzmo server) from music artists and from movies (from internet or from mymovies)
    Mezzmo v4.x automatically collects backdrops for your music, movies and TV shows, so should see them in Mezzmo Android when you go to DETAILS mode. To check this, go to Mezzmo Windows and right-click on a file and click Properties. Scroll down to the bottom of the Properties dialog to check if you see backdrops. If no, then try running Maintain Library with the "Update artwork" checkbox selected and this will try to get backdrop artwork from the web for your files.

    Hello Paul,
    thanks for your answer. Mezzmo generate backdrops from music cover or from the artwork by movies. I mean mezzmo should load backrops from web like www.htbackdrops.org for music artists or should use the fanart.jpg from the program mymovies which is in the same folder as the mymovies.xml file.

    Thanks for the feedback. We'll look into www.htbackdrops.org and fanart.jpg for a future version.
