    Default Web Access user levels

    What's the difference in user capabilities between a normal web user and one which has Admin rights ? I have been looking and don't seem to see any. I also hit the Help button on that user settings dialog box and it doesn't bring up a help screen.

    Sorry for the lack of documentation. As mentioned in a few other posts, we are busy writing our new wiki and that will contain all information about the new features. Hopefully, available later this week.

    Regarding Admin rights, in the current version of Mezzmo (v5.0.3.0), a user with admin rights gets the following extra features in Mezzmo's web interface:

    • User ratings. Ability to click on the star rating for files on the Details page. Your star rating selection is saved back into your Mezzmo library for that file. Great for rating files as you play or view them in your web browser.
    • Download files. Ability to download the file instead of playing it in your web browser. Click the Download button (next to the Play button) on the Details page to download the original file via your web browser. Useful for transferring a file to another device or computer.
    • Launch URLs. Ability to bypass Mezzmo's web player and launch (play) the file using the default/plugin-based/extension-based player in your web browser. Click the Launch URL button (next to the Play button) to launch the file via your web browser. Useful for playing a file in another media player if you are having troubles with Mezzmo's web player.
    • Access Reports. View a report of user access to your Mezzmo server. Go to Mezzmo settings page in web browser and click REPORT button. Useful for knowing who accessed your Mezzmo server and when they accessed it.
    • Share content on social media sites. Share content as permanent links on popular social media sites. Click the Facebook, Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, etc. buttons on the Details page. You must have permanent links turned on for this feature to appear in Mezzmo's web interface. Useful when you wish to share a link to one of your files on your Facebook page, etc.

    We will be expanding this list of admin features in future versions of Mezzmo so that owners of Mezzmo can use admin rights to control and manage their Mezzmo library remotely via their web browser. For example, we are just finishing up adding the ability to pre-transcode a video and audio file that requires transcoding. There will be a Transcoding button (next to the Play button) to start transcoding. A progress bar will be displayed to tell you transcoding progress. This is useful for preparing a file for playback so that FF/REW and Pause works (in some cases, it may not work due to video format). This will be available in the next Mezzmo release.

    Mezzmo Android: Install it on your tablet, smartphone, Android TV or Amazon Fire to browse and stream files from your Mezzmo library to all your devices. Full details at http://www.conceiva.com/products/mez...mo_android.asp
    Mezzmo for Kodi Add-on: Install it into Kodi to stream files from your Mezzmo library directly in Kodi. Full details at http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...odi_user_guide
    Mezzmo for Roku App: Install it onto your Roku to stream files from your Mezzmo library. Full details at http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...oku_user_guide

    Thanks Paul. This is helpful. I'll put another plug in for adding the Play-To option for Admins
