Hello,

I think I did... but I couldn't tell you how I did it!! I will see if the setup is still on the server and get back to you if I can figure it out :).

Re: Xbox 360 headache, It will playback ONLY WMV over Twonky

Hello, I am having the exact same problem. MP3s and Pictures work gracefully as ever with Twonky 5.1.2 but no video at all (although, haven't tried WMV) will stream anymore. I get the same error code in the Xbox as everyone else. I have resorted back to using 5.0.68 as someone else suggested. I have...

Flac to Wav for Xbox 360

Hi, I've got TwonkyMedia Server 5.1.1 running absolutely fine on my Ubuntu Server computer. It streams MP3s more than happily to the Xbox 360. Including Xvid videos. The works! However... has anyone managed to get Flacs to transcode on the fly and play through the 360 yet??? Can anyone post their cl...

Re: TwonkServ 5 won't boot at startup...

If you follow this thread EXACTLY, you shouldn't have any problems.

http://www.twonkyforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=5065

It seemed to work fine for most people (until Twonky got borked a while back - but is now fixed).

Good luck! Let us know if this doesn't work.

Re: Ive tried and tried - Cant get to run at startup

Ahhh, thats another elegant solution to the problem. Both seem to work quite happily. I wish the SH had these values by default.

They could easily add an "If" clause for Ubuntu in case it causes problems for Red Hat users.

Cheers for this!

Re: How To: Install Twonky 5.0.46 on Ubuntu 8.10

Bump.

I have revised the original post to reflect recent changes with TwonkyMedia, updated all the links and checked all the code.

It all works fine again.

Thanks to all that helped out!

P.S. Maybe this guide should go in the FAQ section of the main site?? It seems to be fairly sought after.

I still have the same problem myself. Which is odd, because videos work fine, its only music that doesn't.

I havn't tried the Beta yet, I wonder if that fixes it?

Can you tell me how you got the 64bit version working and on what OS specifically?

I tried on Ubuntu Server 8.04 64bit but I couldn't get it working - then I heard there was a package you could install to make it work, but I never figured out exactly what that was.

The way it starts via Ubuntu Tweak only starts the server when a user logs in. This isn't the case when you are running via a server, as a user never logs in.

If you forward port 9000 on your router to the IP of the computer that is running TwonkyMedia, you can then type the External IP address of your computer at home (Which can be found from http://whatsmyip.org) and do everything you could on a LAN.

Re: Unknown artist in XBMC

I found out the problem. You need to make sure your Mp3s are tagged with ID3V2.3 tags, NOT V2.4.

If you use Debian or Ubuntu, I suggest installing EasyTag via a simple "sudo apt-get install easytag".

Then set your tag pref's to ID3V2.3.

That should fix your problem!
