Re: Tips for configuring TwonkyServer to work with a Samsung

This unfortunately is still not resolved, and disappointingly Twonky 7 has removed the ability to transcode full stop, unless I'm missing something.

Re: Transcoding WMA to MP3 for Samsung TV

Did you ever get transcoding of WMA to MP3 working for the Samsung TV ? I've given this a try following the posts here and have not succeeded. I have tried both vlc and ffmpeg.
