    Default Start watching in one room, finishing in another room

    I'm running Mezzmo for Kodi on 2 different media players. Is there a way to configure mezzmo to allow me to pickup where I left off watching from the other media player ?

    Hi,
    yes Mezzmo shares bookmarks between Kodi instances, so if you stop the video on one Kodi instance a bookmark is sent back to the Mezzmo server then when you browse to the file in the other Kodi instance the bookmark will be used to resume playing from the last position.

    Ok, I thought that was how it was supposed to work. I'll try it again - the first time I did it, I created a bookmark, exited the movie, went back into the movie, and .... no bookmark.

    Peter,

    Does the newer v5.1.1 automatically set the UseGlobalBookmarks=1 in the MezzmoMediaServer.ini file to enable global bookmarks or is that no longer needed ?

    Thanks Jeff, I forgot about this. The UseGlobalBookmarks=1 needs to be set in the MezzmoMediaServer.ini file for the bookmarks to be shared between devices.

    This option you might want to expose via the GUI in a future release or make it a default.

    Where exactly is MezzmoMediaServer.ini located? I've searched my entire drive, and I can't find it. The only INI file I found was CER.INI, and it's not a text file.

    MezzmoMediaServer.ini is located in your Mezzmo database folder, go to options in Mezzmo to find this folder. Then edit the file in a text editor and under [DB] add UseGlobalBookmarks=1

    Stop and restart the Mezzmo service after updating and it should work fine. I really like the feature. I have 4 Kodi clients with the Mezzmo add-on where I share the bookmarks...
