Mezzmo app gives Fire TV owners an alternative to Plex


Mezzmo has released a new app for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick that plays content from DLNA / UPnP media servers. Mezzmo has their own media server software for Windows PCs, available for around $20, but the Fire TV app also works with other media servers, like Plex. Mezzmo can stream video and music files with poster, album, and backdrop artwork. If you already have a media server like Plex setup, or are just interested in new ways to play your local content through your Fire TV, you can give the Mezzmo Trial app a shot for free for 15 days to see if you like it better than your current Fire TV media player app.

    I wonder why I’d switch from Plex or Infuse to Mezzmo? Does it offer audio passthrough for DTS like Infuse or MrMC does?

      I don’t know, but I made the switch to Emby a few weeks ago and couldn’t be happier. Went from Kodi » Plex » Emby » Kodi with Emby plugin. It’s so nice having the server/client relationship with the Kodi interface/customization.

        I’ve been thinking of doing this. To clarify, does this mean you’re really just using emby to maintain your database and make it available to multiple Kodi boxes?
        I don’t need transcoding or any of the other features but a common library that doesn’t require each firetv to update would be nice.

    I have been looking as to how you use this with Plex as your server. But I can’t find any instructions anywhere. Anyone have any clues !??
