    Default Show Missing Files

    Trying out Mezzmo and after setting everything up, I had a hard drive failure on the drive I store my video files on. Mezzmo still has the playlist, but is there a way to have it show you the files that are missing, maybe highlight the file in red or yellow or something similar? Or, does it already do this and I am just missing something?

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    currently Mezzmo does not contain a method for showing you files that are missing. If you know the path to the files you could create a smart playlist with the condition that the path is equal to that path and then this would show all the files that were on that drive http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...mart_playlists

    If you just want to remove them from the library you can run Maintain Library and check the box to remove files that cannot be found on disk.

    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

    This would definitely be a nice option to have, maybe under the customize columns. You can add one that says highlight missing files and it would highlight filenames in yellow or red that are missing, or make a column called 'file exists' or 'file missing' and then just put an X in that column if the file exists or is missing, depending on how you make it.

    Just an idea.

    Thanks!
