Thread: Active Playlist problem

  1. #1

    Default Active Playlist problem

    Hi
    I'm trying to organise my movies first by 'first letter' and then by 'first word' - I also use a smartlister filter where type has to be video. This works fine if the movie has at least two words in the title .ie
    A <= part of hierarchy
    Adams <= part of hierarchy
    Adams Rib <= film I can select in the folder 'Adams'

    my problem happens if the movie name is one word e.g
    A <= part of hierarchy
    Avatar <= part of hierarchy
    'nothing here' <= empty folder

    How can I fix this so that I can pick Avatar as a movie to play ?
    thanks

    The sql being executed to get the files is looking for a title like Avatar followed by a space character, to work around this you can edit the title in the properties of Avatar and add a space to the end and this will allow the file to be listed.

    Thanks for your reply , your solution certainly works; however I have a lot of files and I would not like to do this again. Does Mezzmo have any scriptable interface that could be interacted with ?
    A simple script to iterate through all the files in the db and if there are no spaces in the current title field then append one would do it I think.

    I think we can fix this so that it does not need the extra space added by adjusting the sql statement generated so that it checks for the word with a space following and also the word with no characters following it. Please send an email to support [at] conceiva [dot] com and we will send you a patch to try.
