Re: Why won't Twonky scan network drives?

Incidentally, I came across this after having problems with the linux version (which is on the same box as the media). The linux one kept bombing out whilst my WD TV Live was browsing. Discovered it wasn't killing itself when I told it to stop! The linux init script relies on the killall command, w...

Re: Why won't Twonky scan network drives?

I don't know specifically why it does not work, but it's a REALLY bad idea to serve media up across a network, where the source lives on a network, it's killing the bandwidth stressing the NIC and you may have problems with duplexing. If your media is on another server, ideally you should install T...

Why won't Twonky scan network drives?

Hi folks,

Just installed Twonky 5.1.2 on Win 7 and my video is on a network drive but Twonky refuses to scan it.

Any ideas why?

Cheers.
Paul.

That's not the issue I have. The server works, serves files, is updating itself however most of the time I can't actually access the web interface because it just sits there.

Does anyone know why this might be? It works fine for a while then all of a sudden the CPU usage jumps causing the PS3 to stutter.

Twonky 5.0.46 not listing VOBs??

I've just upgraded to this and have been ripping my DVDs with DVD Decrypter into single VOB files. It's running on XP Pro and serving a PS3.

Twonky isn't showing these, it's showing two VOB files which don't actually exist on my server?

Any thoughts?

Re: TMS 5.0 don't work well with large media libraries

Same problem here.....and it means I can't currently use Twonky as it defaults to My Music when it gets installed and does a scan immediately which you can't halt.

Does this fix the issue I have with my PS3 where it's showing 2 copies of most files in my library? Also leaving out vob files with a lowercase extension!

4.4.9 didn't do it. Should I force a rescan?

Re: Streams does not start and data formats are not supported

Odd. Never had mkvs working on the PS3 through anything as unless Twonky remuxes on the fly the PS3 doesn't support them?

I just remux to either vob or m2ts.

Not sure the PS3 supports h264 in an avi container?

Try demuxing them and putting them in an m2ts container or a vob. All my h264 stuff is either .ts, .m2ts or .vob.

Install the program I told you about then find out what codec they are, then transcode to something the PS3 can play.

Re: Some AVI do not work!!

AVI is a container format, it can contain any number of different video and audio codecs.

Download http://avicodec.duby.info/ or something similar and it'll tell you the audio and video codecs used. Obviously not all of these are supported on the PS3.

You can play DTS DVDs (I assume) so why can't it just pass the DTS bitstream from VOBs or any other files?
