    Glad to hear it is working, your idea for locking the app to only send content to a specific device is interesting. We could add a password or pin to lock the device list to only allow certain devices to be selected but this would not prevent using another app to play a file to the TV and interrupt the playing content. We may consider adding something like this.

    maybe lock the tablet or phone to the device on the server side so only that phone or device will work with that tv or with itself

    The app doesn't actually talk to the server when playing a file or when performing an action such as pause, stop, seek, etc. The app talks directly to the device and tells it which URL to request and then to stop, play or pause, etc. so it would not be possible to use the Mezzmo server to prevent actions being performed on the device.

    One possible way you could keep them separate would be to put each TV and phone in a separate subnet and this would prevent them from controlling each other's TV using the app, this would probably require adding an extra router and also you would need to have the PC running Mezzmo server in both subnets.
