    Lightbulb Mezzmo (Windows) v5.0 and Mezzmo (Android) v2.0: Invitation for Beta testers

    We are just putting the finishing touches to Mezzmo (Windows) v5.0 and Mezzmo (Android) v2.0.

    We would like to invite a limited group of Mezzmo registered users to provide feedback how these new major versions perform with their devices and collection of files.

    New features in Mezzmo v5.0 (Windows) include:

    • URL streaming. Add video, music or photo URLs to your Mezzmo library and stream them to your devices or web browsers. See 'Add To Library' -> 'Add URL' dialog.
    • Web interface. Browse and stream your Mezzmo library to any web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc.). Works with computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, TVs, etc.
    • Remote browsing & streaming. Connect to your Mezzmo library from outside your home and browse & stream your media anywhere in the world.
    • Web Access setup. Create web accounts for users who want to access your Mezzmo library. Restrict access to certain playlists, folders or files with specific content rating. Create a personalized home page for users. See Media Server -> Web Access dialog.
    • Permanent Links. Use permanent links to provide access to particular media in your Mezzmo library. Includes fully embedded players. Great for adding links your blog, Facebook page, Twitter page, etc. See File Properties dialog (General tab) for a file's permanent link.
    • Plugins. Python-based plugins let you add new channels to your Mezzmo library so you can browse and play media from any source, including internet web sites. See 'Add To Library' -> 'Add Channel' dialog. This Beta contains a sample SHOUTcast internet radio plugin for you to try. Many more coming! Development of plugins is open to third-party developers to create new and exciting plugins.
    • Live streaming. Stream audio or video that has no finite duration (examples: online radio station, online TV, etc.). Set an audio or video file as a live stream in File Properties dialog (Audio or Video tab).
    • Intel QuickSync hardware encoding support. See Transcoding Settings dialog.
    • h.265 (HEVC) video encoding.
    • Preferred audio language. See Options dialog (Streaming page).
    • Restrict access to playlists/folders by device or web access user via Playlist Sharing Permissions dialog.
    • Set auto-refresh intervals for folders and linked playlists. Mezzmo automatically looks for changes (new files, deleted files, etc.) at each interval. This removes the need for daily maintenance and running Mezzmo (Windows) app (i.e. Mezzmo server will do the auto-refreshing for you). See Folder Properties dialog or Linked Playlist dialog.
    • Lock files from being further updated during maintenance. See File Properties dialog.
    • New device support includes: Sonos audio devices, Sony Playstation 4, Kodi media player, LG TVs (2015 models), Loewe TVs, Oppo 105 Blu-ray players, Panasonic Viera TVs (2015 models), Samsung J-series TVs (2015 models), Sharp Aquos TVs (2015 models), Toshiba Blu-ray players, Vizio TVs (2015 models), WD TV media players, web browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc.) and many more.
    • Improved DVD, Blu-ray and subtitle handling.
    • Many bug fixes and improvements for issues reported by users.

    New features in Mezzmo (Android) v2.0 include:

    • Fully Android TV compatible.
    • Fully Amazon Fire TV compatible.
    • New built-in video player with subtitle support and audio stream selection.
    • Improved user interface that supports both touch-based and non-touch-based Android devices.

    • Many bug fixes and improvements for issues reported by users.
