    Default Just Some Honest Thoughts On Mezzmo - Evolve Faster Please

    Hi Guys - As a long time Mezzmo user, I love Mezzmo and the support provided for the app. However, with the limitation of Mezzmo - use only inside my network, I began looking for an external streaming solution. The last and best one I found is Plex. The over IP dnla stream is great with Plex. So for the last year or so, I have been running both media servers. Mezzmo as my rock solid dnla streamer in-network. Plex as my streamer over external IP. BUT gradually, Plex has taken over the primary streamer everywhere for me at this point. It works just as well in-network as Mezzmo. I am at the point where Mezzmo is an after thought.

    Today, I got excited to see the 4.* version out, along with an Android app. My first thought was cool!, the guys finally caught up. Only read up on the app and discover it is just a Mezzmo remote control. While useful, hardly a need. In July/Aug of 2013, I asked if Mezzmo was going to go in the directions of Skifta (OOB) and Plex. The answer was 'it is in our plans'. If so, when?

    My apologies... but you guys have to hear this from a loyal Mezzmo customer.

    Thanks for your thoughts. Always welcome.

    We prioritize our product roadmap based in part on what our userbase is asking for and that is what Mezzmo v4.0 + Mezzmo Android represents - e.g. Blu-ray streaming, better parental control via content rating, more metadata, better looking artwork, smart filters in active playlists, Chromecast support, Xbox One support, Android app, display titles, sort titles, etc.

    The launch of our new Mezzmo Android app is just that. It's the starting point for us on the Android platform and there's a ton of exciting things that we want to do with it. There's also a ton of Mezzmo server features in our development queue - including the much-requested URL streaming and your wishlist feature of external streaming.

    Now that Mezzmo v4.0 and Mezzmo Android have been released, we can start planning the next set of features. I have already lodged your vote for external streaming to be one of them .

    Can I vote twice? (or twenty times?)

    Add my vote to the list. It's not a showstopper for me but external streaming would be #1 or #2 on my list of desirable features.
