Thread: Playto feature gets" cannot stream file to devicesince Mezzmo server is not running"

    Default Playto feature gets" cannot stream file to devicesince Mezzmo server is not running"

    I just did a completely fresh new install of Mezzo, and now when I chose any video file for the "playto" feature, I always get a message saying "cannot stream file to devicesince Mezzmo server is not running". The mezzmo service is definitely running. I checked the service and also according to the GUI, it says "media server running". This absolutely worked on the exact same tv before I uninstalled and reinstalled which I did for other reasons. Ideas?

    You may have blocked Mezzmo app from accessing Mezzmo server. Go to the Media Devices dialog in Mezzmo and make sure you have allowed access for any devices/apps with the same IP address as your computer that has Mezzmo installed on it (typically, you may see Windows Media Player listed with the same IP address). Restart your Mezzmo server and hopefully this fixes things up.

    I was able to fix this by completely uninstalling Mezzmo and then reinstalling and instead of adding folders via "tools-> setup your mezzmo library", I added folders in "Library -> Music or Video or Photos". I would have thought the results would be the same either way, but they definitely are not. I tried both ways by completely uninstalling and removing all folders and settings and then reinstalling. After adding folders via the Library, I no longer received the error.
