WD Sharespace and PS3 Video Tree Issues

Post by bladedge » Sun May 02, 2010 12:16 pm

Hi, Im new here and i think im in the right spot so here goes,

I have a WD Sharespace running TwonkyMedia Version 4.4.9 connected to my network and my PS3.
I have my videos on the Sharespace in Different Folders eg


however the PS3 just sees them as 1 big list so they all appear and play but arent separated
i have seen that a custom video tree can be created but i cannot get it to se individual folders on the HDD, if i create 3 folders then i get the 3 folders but cant seem to separate the data into those folders everything just appears! i Have also seen that i cant upgrade the twonky version as it is installed on a NAS.

Any help would be appreciated!

Hello, if you want to have folders the way you suggest then you need put the folders themselves inside a sharespace, i.e.:


with Video being the sharespace. You can actually call the sharespace anything you like or have multiple sharespaces all with videos in them because Twonky doesn't see it as a folder at all. I find this quite handy because i have a dual drive nas and my videos won't all fit on one drive. My NAS is a QNAP one but i'm sure it will work the same as yours.

Hope this helps.
