Where is Twonky Server product heading?

Post by mgillespie » Sat Jan 28, 2012 5:20 pm

I'm all rather confused about the large number of Twonky products, with lots of feature overlap, some pay, some free etc.

I would like to know where the "classic" Twonky Server is heading, does it have a future? I am concerned that it's the end of the road for end-user NAS builds.

If I head to the TwonkyMedia download page, it lists Linux, but once you download, you realise it's only "desktop" Linux for Intel architecture.

Can someone from Twonky let us know what future the other Twonky Server builds have?

Thanks.

That's a good question. The "Classic" TwonkyServer still brings in a lot of money, so I expect we will continue to support it. As far as I know, we plan to continue to support all of the NAS builds as well. We just recently posted a link to 6.0.39 for all NAS builds. Let me know if you can't find the link for those.

I have bought Twonky server, for windows, now running 6.0.37
In addition I have bought a Qnap NAS (ARM) including some v5.x software, having the same error as the former win- 5.x , not showing Video but point at pictureslibrary. I would like to try upgrade, but I have not the faintest clue whether it little or big endian.
I am aware there is no support on NASbuildts, but can anyone direct me which version, optionally where to start.
And, as the Twonkylicence is included on the NAS, where do I find the key?

If the build included is one that needs a key,
then it will be located in the twonky server ini (not the twonyk server default ini)

You might find some QNAP install tips here: http://www.twonkyforum.com/viewforum.php?f=8 or in QNAP's forum.

If you can't find a key by other means, you can buy one on Twonky.com. You can buy a key for any of our products and it will work with any server version.
