I have buy a License but the Support here is not the best :roll: . I have many Questions here but no answer. Other DLNA Software have a better Support.

YouTube support is configured in the Twonky server Media Feeds configuration page. As far as I know you can't target a specific feed, but I have never tried it.

Thumbnails require 2 things-
1) A mediaplayer that supports thumbnails when accessing a DLNA server
2) Correctly named thumbnail files, i.e. Folder.jpg for music albums and video_base_filename.jpg for videos.

It should still be possible to create your own YouTube feeds.

On TwonkyServer 6.0. Go to server settings page and click on Media Feeds. Scroll down to YouTube and enter topics in the box underneath "Tagged Videos". Make sure to check Tagged Videos as well.

On TwonkyServer 7.0. Go to Settings from the myTwonky browser page. Then go to Connect your online accounts. Let me know if it's not clear from there.

Once you do this, you should be able to access the pages from your connected devices (as long as they support that media file format).
