Twonky doesn't read AVI tags

Post by Frodo00 » Mon Feb 13, 2012 12:34 pm

I have tagged all my video files (*.avi, XVid) properly, but Twonky server just ignores the tags while building up the database for the navigation tree. Does anyone have an idea how to customize Twonky, that the avi tags get included in the tree?

What software did you use to tag your video files? We support several tag standards for photos and music, but I'm not aware of a tag standard for videos. I could be wrong of course.
