Mezzmo consistently receives awards and praise from top web sites, magazines,
blogs, software reviewers and internet users for its streaming features, ease-of-use and
support for all popular UPnP and DLNA devices.
This is a sample of the awards and user reviews that Mezzmo has received.
"Not many folks get how cool Mezzmo is. I hope after this post more people get it. What Mezzmo does is allow
you to use your netbook as a streaming media server. So why would you want to do that? The idea is that the device you have
with you, on the road etc., is likely the device to initially store your media, i.e. photos, music, & video that you
produce or capture when out and about. With Mezzmo you playback this media on another device, like your wall mounted TV
without ever having to transfer the files off the netbook. Mezzmo is able to do this because it is a DLNA or UPnP compliant
media server. UPnP is a common standard that home media systems use to find and play media. XBox and PS3 systems are
compliant. This means if you have your netbook on and within a 100 ft or so of your PlayStation then it will see your netbook
and list its media as browsable and playable media on your TV. How cool is that!"
"With its sleek and well-designed interface, Mezzmo permits you to easily configure which files should be added to your
library, and specify those that you are willing to share. You'll be guided through the whole process with the help of comprehensive
and user-friendly windows...In conclusion, I would highly recommend you to try Mezzmo, because it works as it should, it is full-featured,
and it has a reasonable price."
"Once Mezzmo was set up, all we did was turn on the TV, find Mezzmo in the DLNA devices, choose our movie and go. It really couldn't
have gotten any easier...Presentation of media on the TV seems faster than from any of our DLNA media servers. Any problems I had were
handled promptly and thoroughly by Conceiva's support. It was actually enjoyable talking with them!"

"...Mezzmo definitely is worth the $29.95. The coolest thing about Mezzmo
is that the creators made sure it supports almost any brand available on the market today. Right now it supports over 500 different devices, from
Sony TVs to the Xbox360 and Denon, Onkyo receivers and tablets, phones and Set top boxes. Another cool feature of Mezzmo is that it can pre-transcode
files. This means that once you request to play a specific file like an MKV movie, it will know to transcode, will do it on the fly and will finish
transcoding the whole file to a supported format and save it on your harddrive so later on, no more transcoding needed if you would play the same
movie or music again. It can even pre-transcode upfront without having to start playing a movie."
"...Mezzmo is an impressive piece of software. It can organize all of your media similar
to programs like iTunes and such. Plus it can also stream media to a multitude of devices connected to your network.
Conceiva seems to have a solid support team that monitors their forums and responds directly to user questions. The software
is very easy to install and get running, especially when combined with a Sony PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360..."
"Mezzmo turns your laptop or desktop PC into an on-demand streaming DLNA media server. The software organizes your media
collection, and it can play music, video, or slideshows of digital photos through a wide range of media-streaming receiver
boxes (also known as Digital Media Players, or DMPs) that support either the DLNA or UPnP standards for AV products--a long list
that includes the Xbox 360 and PS3 game consoles--hooked up to TVs or home theater receivers."

"Great DLNA server software! I recently purchased a Samsung LN46C650 46" TV and attempted to set up wireless media sharing with
Samsung's DLNA software, PC Share Manager. After many frustrating attempts at trying to navigate the file folder structure on that, and completely
not being able to view .mov (Quicktime) files from my digital camera, I decided to look for alternative DLNA software. I started looking online for
other programs. When I stumbled upon Mezzmo, I thought the interface looked intuitive in the screenshot; which was very different from the clunky
PC Share Manager. I downloaded it and it found all the pictures and videos on my machine, proceeded to get thumbnails for each, and was all set to
go automatically. I turned on the TV and it recognized Mezzmo and all the thumbnails came up. This is key for my collection because I have over
60GB of pictures and videos, and navigating without thumbnails would have been very slow. The key thing I noticed about Mezzmo is its speed. It navigates
and brings up pics very fast. But what was really great is that the .mov files from my digital cameras would all get transcoded and play automatically.
That was awesome. I didn't have to batch convert them. I would definitely recommend Mezzmo!"
"Great Product. Tried Many Others. Streaming works well, transcoding looks great, and all files play on my Samsung 6500 series TV! I tried
to use WMP, TVersity, and Samsung PC Share Manager before this and none came close. A great product a no brainer for your DLNA device."
"Best DLNA media server I've used. Of all DLNA media servers I've tried (JR Media Server, Samsung PCSM, Serviio, TVersity) this is the most
flexible and does the best job."
"Replaced PS3 Media Server. Seems to stream everything. Nothing has refused to play. I have been using Mezzmo for about a year and every
release gets better. I stream to Xbox, PS3, Visio TV, Viera TV, and a Samsung TV with no problems. Whether it's MKV or whatever, doesn't seem to matter.
Plays 1 GB 480p movies to 25 GB 1080p Full Bluray remux movies the same. Worth the money."
"Amazing!! A must have if you have a DLNA enabled TV. Can stream 1080p video smoothly and seamlessly to my DLNA enabled Samsung HDTV. No more
USB drives to save to and connect!! Also, great support!!! Get this!!"
"Just after I mounted my Samsung UE32C6005 LED TV on the wall I started to fiddle with the AllShare functionality. After a while I managed to get the
PC Share Manager Software downloaded, reading the guides, and finally gotten it installed on my file server. Well Samsung PCSM isn’t very capable, is it? I was so
disappointed. When adding my media library, the progress bar didn’t even move! Something must be wrong! After more googling – I found this forum, where I found the
other media servers that are good-to-go with a Samsung TV. I’ve tried them, some of them work better than others, but none of them are “The Media player” for my TV.
More googling! And then I found Mezzmo by Conceiva www.mezzmo.com This is the media player! Easy to install, simple to manage, and very competent. It works like a
charm, it’s fast, it indexes music and images very quickly. I like Mezzmo and so does my Samsung!"
"Mezzmo is simply the best DLNA media server. Works perfect with my Sony Bravia TV. Customer support is prompt,
friendly and extremely helpful."
"I have a Series 6 50" Plasma which as you all know has a problem playing video correctly when coming over a LAN. But
when the same file is played from a USB stick it has the correct aspect. If it is wide screen then it is played as wide screen.
I have recently downloaded the trial of Mezzmo. This handy app has fixed my video streaming problems. It is easy to install and will
search for all your media files on your own computer and any other media files that reside on another connected computer can be added
to its library. I'm not waiting or Samsung to fix my problem with a perhaps never to appear patch to the Plasmas software/firmware. This
one just works and its fairly cheap too."
"Thank you! After trying a bunch of media servers, I tried Mezzmo and it is awesome. It worked
first time with no configuring required."
"I have a Samsung LCD TV (LA40B750) and I found Mezzmo worked best as a DLNA server on my PC. Mezzmo has a device profile for
Samsung TVs and worked perfect right after installing it on my PC."
"Mezzmo is by far the best program I´ve used for streaming to my PS3, and I have tried most of them."
"Within about 20 mins of installing and telling it the directories that I want to use..., it had cached all the files, downloaded
thumbnails and album covers, etc. All working well. So far, by the furthest - its been the most complete streamer I have found."
"When I bought my Sony TV with DNLA, I was looking for a media server for my Windows 7 PC. Well, I spent a few hours downloading and
trying products, most of which were not very good. Then I found Mezzmo. After I installed it, my TV connected instantly and I could see my media
files immediately on my TV – wow that was easy!!"
"Mezzmo is the slickest media sharing tool I've tried."
"I wanted to watch all my downloaded movies and TV shows on my TV. So, I bought a D-Link wireless media player. I had all sorts of troubles
setting it up to share my files. Finally, I found Mezzmo and the guys at Conceiva got me up-and-running in minutes. I now watch all my movies and
TV shows streamed from my PC using Mezzmo. Excellent software and excellent customer support."
"Mezzmo is like iTunes on steriods! Like iTunes, Mezzmo automatically organizes all my music into playlists, and does the usual iTunes-stuff - I
can rate my music, burn CDs, search for my favorite tracks, create my own playlists and so on. However, unlike iTunes, Mezzmo can handle my collection of
40,000 MP3s (and growing!). Even better, it can stream all my music to my Xbox 360. Now that's cool!"
"I had no idea how to stream movies from my PC to my TV. Mezzmo is sooo easy-to-use. This is awesome fun!"
"I have tried all different software but none has worked correctly on my Acer H340 running WHS. Even the Samsung PC Share
works but found its not stable and when works lists all my videos without folders. I then came across Mezzmo and found this works. All my
videos show up and include a thumbnail. This little app plays all types of videos even MKV, FLV and h261. My days of searching and trying
apps are over. I recommend Mezzmo as a DLNA server for your device."
Español - "Tengo una television Sony Bravia KDL-40NX700 he buscado y buscado software para poder transmitir las películas de mi mac
al televisor y no hay forma. He encontrado mezzmo, que aunque es para windows (tengo el parallels instalado) es el único que me ha
servido para poder hacer el streaming de video, básicamente el problema radica en que hay pocos programas que realizan una transcodificación
del vídeo, (la bravia sólo permite streaming de MPEG-2) y por eso no me sirve ninguno. Pero desde que he instalado este va todo genial!!!!"

"Bought a new TV a month or so ago... a Sony Bravia 40EX403, with the "new fangled" interface - DNLA ! I regard myself as a bit of a "techie" so,
setting this up to stream movies from my PC should be simple, right ????? WRONG, the servers that are available are either not compatible with the TV,
will not play the file formats I already have... or require a degree in programming to get to work ! Indeed, a few server software require OTHER software
in order to transcode... again needing an assumed knowledge on the topic. Then I happened across Mezzmo... installed WHERE I WANTED (not where the
programmed thought it should go !) and setup was SO easy, I thought "this cant possibly be this easy ?" So far all I have done it tell it where my
movies are stored on my PC... the whole folder, it sorts out thumbnails etc automatically. Spent 30 mins or so testing several files that I know other
servers were "picky" with, and they play without issue whatsoever !!! (apart from a couple of 1080p files I have... but I suspect my PC isn't powerful
enough to transcode these "on the fly" !) Also, the infinite amount of settings to fiddle with on other server software simply don't exist with
Mezzmo.... and I strongly suspect are not needed - programmers seem to think we "need" hundreds of tick-boxes, but this only leads to confusion and
ultimately, disappointment. Only issue I have with the server is that of controls (from the TV) - but it is still early days, so maybe I'm missing
something ! All in all an excellent, easy to work software - well done Conceiver !"
"I recently acquired a Bravia KDLHX701 with internet TV. I tried all the free DLNA servers and WMP12. The only one that was easy to use and
worked flawlessly was Mezzmo. The transcoded video was at least two time better then the same video played via WMP12. I highly recommend Mezzmo."
Português - "Muito bom esse software! Funciona perfeito com minha tv samsung. Facil e rápido. Inclusive tem função de transcodificação."
"I have used many media servers such as Twonky, PS3 Media Server, Wild Media Server, Fuppes, MediaTomb, Nero 7 Media home, Tversity, and I
could never get everything I wanted with any of them except Wild MS and it required A LOT of tweaking and still had audio issues. Then I found Mezzmo I
still currently only have the trial but I have a lot of Blu-Rays Stored on my computer in the form of mkv files which not many servers can transcode
properly if at all. It is difficult for any Media server software to play large mkv files but Mezzmo does it flawlessly over my network to multiple
devices such as my Samsung 50 in. 7000 series 3d plasma and the sony Bravia KDL 46-EX500 in my bedroom the setup up is super easy fast and very
efficient. I recommend it to my customers and I recommend it to anyone looking for a media server solution it has made my life much easier and I guarentee
it will satify almost every need except for playing ISO or disk image files. I have had no sound issues or skipping and I LOVE IT ! check out the trial
for yourself and you wont be let down."
"Plays everything you throw at it flawlessly. Will give a thumbnail picture for all videos and pictures available on the server. If you have
older AVI files 320x240 15 FPS, this is the only software that will play them accurately via DLNA. I have not found any cons for this software. I had low
expectations for Mezzmo after trying all the others first but I was VERY surprised by the ease of use and functionality of the software. Very much
worth every penny. I have tried Windows Media player, Wild media Server, TVersity, and I sedora and none of these would play all of my Library
Except Mezzmo. I highly reccommend Mezzio as your first choice for your DLNA solution."
"Mezzmo DLNA Server software (www.mezzmo.com) is very easy to use and to set up. Just add all the files and folder you'd like to share and away you go!
I have my Sony KDL-40EX503 LCD Tv on my network and it plays all the files i have on my laptop and my external hard drive. The picture quality is greatly improved
when using Mezzmo over the standard Windows software. The video images are of digital freeview quality instead of grainy and fuzzy. You can import playlists from
iTunes and Windows Media Player and also arrange your files in any order you want. It also lets you burn CD/DVD audio and data discs I'll be using this to watch
all my movies in the future!"
