Thread: Mezzmo insists on "Getting video artwork"

    Default Mezzmo insists on "Getting video artwork"

    When I add a folder Mezzmo starts fetching video artwork even though I've disabled any metadata aside from "Get text meta data from file path" in the metadata retrieval settings. I've got thousands of files so if I were to add all of them it would literally take days to complete.

    Any way to disable this tedious operation that I don't want or need? I can't cancel it because it's a system task so...

    There is no way to completely disable getting artwork, if Mezzmo does not get artwork from the Internet or file path then a screenshot from the video is generated. Possibly we could add a setting to disable getting any thumbnails and just use a default image.

    That would be awesome. I love the program but until there's some way to opt out, the cripplingly slow fetching of meta data simply makes it unusable for me in its current state.

    That would probably speed things up quite a bit.
