Twonky Server7 Configuration

Post by Shockmaindave » Thu Dec 01, 2011 12:49 pm

Hey, can anyone tell me where the Twonky-mediaserver.ini file would be on a clean install of 7.0? I can't find it anywhere.
Thanks.
Dave

Phibertron,

I'm on Windows 7.

I've also been having trouble with your "Display folders at the root" xml files. They don't seem to work--and I love them. Have you got any ideas?

Thanks--
Dave

I think I just figured out why they won't work. The mytwonky.com site requires video/photo/music headers.
Or, as is more likely, I put them someplace wrong.

Good luck finding something out. I can't remember if I ever thanked you for the work you did on them. If not, thanks.

Phibertron,

No rush. It was great when you found out how to do it, but we've lived for years without it.

I found where the Windows 7 twonkyserver.ini is on Windows 7: AppData\Roaming\TwonkyServer. The AppData directory is invisible by default, so it was hard to find. I don't know if Twonky Central changed that to make it harder to modify, but the move from the old Program Data directory came as a bit of a surprise.

I think the difference is if it is running as a user or system service
that defines wether it goes into <user>\appdata or to <all users>\?
could be wrong about that on win 7

Sadly I have actually never installed it on windows 7, just win2k3 and some vm's

In windows 7 the <all users> is different than in pre-vista there is no appdata
its a link to progamdata for the most part

as a tweaker, the first thing I do is show all files, dont like surprises, or unknowns
