    Default Sort by IMDB rating in XML

    There are several requests to pull IMDB info and sort. It seems hard to implement as I notice that requests go back several years and the responses are that it should be in the next version.

    POSSIBLE SIMPLE SOLUTION...

    "Keyword hierarchy:" to "Group by IMDB rating" and pull this from the XML tag.

    Right now mezzmo can optionally pull metadata from an xml file (Metadata Retrieval Settings).
    Many users are creating XML files with MediaCenterMaster to get the IMDB info.
    If the XML contains the rating a playlist could contain a sorted list based on ratings (ascending or descending).

    Additionally a "Rounding" feature could be toggled by a checkbox that would allow the list to display only whole numbers (e.g. rating of 7.4 would be a 7 and 8.6 would be a 9).

    This would be great to have and would likely satisfy many of the IMDB rating requests.

    The current version of Mezzmo (v4.1.3.0) does collect most attributes from external metadata files (.XML, .NFO, .TGMD), including the rating and IMDB ID. IMDB ratings are translated into Mezzmo star rating (i.e. 0 to 5 stars).

    You can sort your playlist/folders by many different attributes, including rating. Right-click on a playlist/folder and click Properties. On the Properties dialog, change the "Sort by" combo box to the attribute that you want your files sorted by.
