Thread: Is there a way to play next video like music does?

    Default Is there a way to play next video like music does?

    Hi,
    I'm not sure if this is a Mezzmo thing or a feature of the TV (Pananic Viera in this case)

    For music files, once one track finished the next track plays. Quite sensible really.
    For photos, it can skip to the next one after a short pause as a slideshow. Also quite sensible, even better with the built-in background music turned off (that's a TV thing not Mezzmo. But being able to drop in a background track for a set of photo's would be pretty good huh?)
    For video...

    Not really an issue for a series like CSI, Walking Dead, etc where one at a time is enough, but would be nice to be able to set off a bunch of Thomas / Dangermouse / TreeFu Tom for the kids without having to keep going back in every 5 minutes to click next. Might have to go back every five minute to settle the latest dispute over who's playing with which toy or climbing Mt Sofa but there's no fix for that...

    Thoughts?

    This is a feature of the firmware of your DLNA device (your Viera TV). When the file is playing on the TV, press the Tools or Options button on your TV's remote control and check if there is a Repeat setting. Typically, there are 3 settings for Repeat - i.e. repeat none (i.e don't repeat), repeat the same file continuously, or repeat the folder / playlist. You want the latter setting.

    If your TV does not have repeat settings, another way to do this is to use our Mezzmo Android app. If you have an Android tablet or smartphone, then installing Mezzmo Android app on it will let you browse your Mezzmo library and select files to play on your devices in your home. The PLAYLIST mode in the app lets you repeat none, repeat the same file continuously and repeat the folder / playlist. More details here - http://www.conceiva.com/products/mez...d_features.asp.

    One thing I've seen on most DLNA clients is that when you play videos using the Select or Ok button then it is video by video as you describe. However, when you use the Play button (often the button with the right facing triangle) it will play everything from the point you have selected in the folder.
