Thread: Smart Playlist Help

    Default Smart Playlist Help

    I saw an older post that was trying to do something similar and I believe the workaround was to modify the xml files with a line to make movies similar, which I'm hoping to avoid. I'm trying to create a playlist that shows what I'm currently watching and remove it after it's been watched from the playlist. If I use 'Any', I can point to a file path (Y:\Narcos\Season 02\) and have another (Y:\Longmire\ Season 05). How do I implement the count so it doesn't include all of my files? So if I watch X amount of Narcos S05E01, I won't see it again and I'll know where I left off. These paths I'm trying to add could be across multiple drives also.

    Guessing 1 way to do this is to create a folder and copy the stuff in there. Then I can use 'all' to a specific path and count < 1. Anyway to do this without having to move the files?

    One way would be assign a category value to the files in these two folders. In Mezzmo, click on one of the folders you mention to display all the files. Select all the files (using Ctrl or Shift + click, or using Ctrl+A) and right-click on one of the selected files and click Properties. On the Properties dialog, enter a value into the 'Category' edit box such as "watching". Click OK. This will save that category value into all selected files. Repeat the steps for the other folder's files. Now edit your smart playlist. Set the rule to be:

    Match [all] rules:
    [Category][contains][watching]
    [Play Count][is not][0]

    This will list all files with that category that have not yet been played .

    Thank you. I changed the Play Count is not 1 and I believe this will work the way I'd like it to.

    Thanks again.

    Quick question about the Category Value. How is this originally populated? I just happen to notice that my tv show episodes say movie and not tv show. Any easy way to fix this with large collection?

    Thank you

    Hi,
    Mezzmo populates this value using information from an Internet metadata lookup or by parsing the filename looking for season and episode information. If a file has season and episode information it is categorized as a TV Show. If you have a large collection of files that are marked as movie and not TV Show you can update them all at once by selecting all the files and go to properties then change the Category to TV Show and it will be applied to all selected files. You can create a Smart Playlist with rules like 'Category is Movie' and 'Episode is not 0' and this should list all TV Shows that have been marked incorrectly as movies.
