WD MyBookLive UI Settings for Twonky Interface

Post by phibertron » Thu Aug 09, 2012 3:42 am

For the WD MBL users out there
I posted some information on the community site on how to get the WD Web UI working with 7.x status info
The culprit is twonky-config.html
The WD script needs to find the port for twonky
But it is trying to get it from twonkymedia-config.html
So either edit the script, or rename the file
Your choice

In /DataVolume/cache/twonkymedia
make a copy of twonky-config.html
and rename it twonkymedia-config.html

I think the following command should do it

cp -r /DataVolume/cache/twonkymedia/twonky-config.html /DataVolume/cache/twonkymedia/twonkymedia-config.html

you have 3 choices

1.
edit the script that twonky uses to get port for the status screen
(cant remember its name or path at the moment, I thinks its getmediaserverport.sh or something like that in www)

2.
create the folder /CacheVolume/twonkymedia
copy "/var/twonky/twonky-config.html" to "/CacheVolume/twonkymedia/twonkymedia-config.html"

3.
edit /etc/init.d/twonky and append -appdata /CacheVolume/twonkymedia so that will be the new appdata folder
stop and start twonky
copy "/CacheVolume/twonkymedia/twonky-config.html" to "/CacheVolume/twonkymedia/twonkymedia-config.html"

Omg. look what i have done. and i am a imba noobie for these kinds of things like writing code.

twonky-config.html this file was in /var/twonky/twonky/twonkyserver
I coppied that file as you said and pasted as media

But at tthe end the status is not changed.


Then look what i did. ı changed back the below one to "MEDIA"
# get info_clients option from Twonky
cat /CacheVolume/twonkymedia/twonky-config.html | grep "URL" | awk '

Now in the status date is shown but wrong date
version is shown in pictures. =)

media players are shown but 2 blank spots then the players.


What do you say ? =))

like codeing, there is usually more than one way to get it done
some quicker than others, but it in most cases its the end result that matters

good work dude =)

That is the normal behavior for a installing or re-installing firmware in most scenarios

Twonky can serve mkv, what is your client?

nope my friend.

519 can not stream mkv. that is why we are trying to upgrade to 709.

Is it possible if i am mixing x264 and mkv to each other.? I am talking about 720p-1080p files while writing mkv.

In regards to mkv, 5.x does stream mkv, it might not be working for your client, but it does do it

This is from 5.x clients.db

I cant post with links on the mybookworld forum, so I put it here

1. I dont know the state of you nas, but IF you re-apply the current firmware, the following will work

2. connect to nas via ssh with putty.exe

3. copy and paste the following into the putty window

Code: Select all

/etc/init.d/twonky stop
cd /usr/local/
mv twonkymedia-5 twonkymedia-5-old
mkdir twonkymedia-5
cd twonkymedia-5
wget http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/7.0.9-Special/twonky-powerpc-glibc-2.2.5-special-7.0.9.zip
unzip twonky-powerpc-glibc-2.2.5-special-7.0.9.zip
mv twonkystarter twonkymedia
mv /usr/local/sbin/writeTwonkyContentDir.sh /usr/local/sbin/writeTwonkyContentDir.sh.old
/etc/init.d/twonky start
exit

4. connect to http://mybooklive:9000 and enter your key

YOU ARE THE KING.....

Let me ask another question. Do your MBL goes in to sleep mode anytime?? (sleep option is checked)

my MBL is connected to my adsl modem router. modem router is always online.

I want MBL to go in sleep mode even while my computer is online(after not using for a while) and after shutting down the computer..

how is yours?

Post by phibertron » Sat Sep 08, 2012 4:33 pm

mine will and does go to sleep mode
but this ability can be affected by a lot of things

it will not sleep if...
if you have an open process looking at any of the shares \\mybooklive\public
if you have a web page open to anything on the nas like twonky or mybooklive ui
if you have the wd2go app running on a mobile device
if you have a dlna clinets periodically sending heart beat to it

but it wil go to sleep, if none of the above are in the way
If I check that nothing is touching it
it can take between 10 to 20 minutes to goto sleep
and at that point the light on it turns from green to blue

FYI

http://community.wdc.com/t5/My-Book-Liv ... 120/page/7
Folks,

We pulled the firmware update down, because we found an issue with the remote access servers when multiple people were connected. This was something we did not find in our internal testing. We hope to get this fixed and published as soon as we can.

I will leave this thread open so we can continue to hear from those of you that did successfully update your firmware.

Hi My Friend.

I think now there is a new FW for MBL http://www.wdc.com/wdproducts/updates/? ... wdfmb_live
And i saw that the sleep problems are resolved. now i want to update the FW again.
After the update will it be possible for me to install twonky 709 again with the command you gave?

Thanks.

It should work fine
However, each firmware upgrade does its own thing
sometimes it doesnt remove the folder "/usr/local/twonkymedia-5-old"
in which case when you run the script the following line

Code: Select all

mv twonkymedia-5 twonkymedia-5-old
might ask for confirmation to overwrite it

Outside of that, it will do the job

Good to hear

Yeah the update was actually a patch, a little different than a firmware upgrade
the patch fixed issues in the last firmware update

I think my problem with sleep mode is somethnig related what you said before. Patch did not change anything for me.

By the way my writing speed from pc to MBL is 10mb/s
pc -ethernet- router -ethernet- mbl

pc ethernet is 10/100/1000
router ethernet is 10/100

Do you also think that this writing speed is so slow? and is it about my router is not 1000mbps ?

what do you suggest to speed up?

when people ask me how fast is 10/100/1000mb/s, I tell them this

As a general rule you would see the follow file transfer rates
(if HDD speed and Cache and not factored in)

10Mbits/s is about 1MByte/s
100Mbits/s is about 10MByte/s
1000Mbits/s is about 100MBytes/s

I would suggest getting a gigabit switch

PC -> Gigabit Switch -> Router -> Internet
TV -> Gigabit Switch
XBOX -> Gigabit Switch
PS3 -> Gigabit Switch
NAS -> Gigabit Switch
Printer -> Gigabit Switch

connect "one" port on the switch to the lan interface of the router
connect "everything else" to the switch
internet traffic will go out from the switch to the router
local network trafiic will be gigabit as long as the clients are gigabit

Note:
The exception to this are any clients connecting the router over wifi
if the router is also a wifi router
as it would have to get back to the switch over the 10/100 port
but they are wireless and at present not cpable of gigabit speeds
that is until 802.11ac becomes out of draft status

The speed of read and writes on the nas will be different, for various reasons
but it wont because of you network =)
You should/will see a drastic improvement with a gigabit switch

thanks for the great answer.

Do you think that the below product will do as you said?

Those links are both for routers
You can either buy a new gigabt router or add a new gigbat swtich to your existing router
the choice is yours, here are some links to unmanaged gigabit switches

http://netgear.com/business/products/sw ... fault.aspx
http://homestore.cisco.com/en-us/produc ... iewcat.htm
http://www.dlink.com/us/en/home-solutio ... t/switches

Note:
If you decide to buy a new router, make damn sure that it will work with your dsl provider
I'd call your provider to make sure that it does before buying one

There is no way to bypass it, without entering a key
If you have purchased a key just enter it on the main page

Code: Select all

http://mybooklive:9000/#status
or like this

Code: Select all

http://mybooklive:9000/rpc/set_option?cdkey=1234-1234-1234-1234-1234-1234-1234-1234

Code: Select all

http://mybooklive:9000/rpc/set_all
If you havent already purchased one, you can get one here, http://twonky.com/store/index.aspx

My friend,

With Liksys x3000 my file transfer speed from pc to mbl and mbl to pc is increased. it is around from 9mb to 35mb.

But the playback of movies does not changed. (mbl ethernet x3000 ethernet lcd tv) all the cables are cat5e.
movies still stops in every 10 seconds...

What do you think the problem is arising from?

its possibly the bitrate of the movie is to high for the tv
what is the format of the media in question mkv mp4?
you have a samsing right?

or possibly the twonky streambuffer
the is what is use currently on WHS it helps with blueray buffering for multiple clients
streambuffer=131072 (128MB)

note: its all about how much ram one has, the WD mbl has 256MB

you should be able easily increase it, try testing with these values 32768, 49152, 65536
you have to restart the server for it to take effect

# buffer size in KB used for streaming (16MB)
streambuffer=16384

Here are some quick rpc calls to do just that

Code: Select all

http://mybooklive:9000/rpc/set_option?streambuffer=32768
http://mybooklive:9000/rpc/restart

Code: Select all

http://mybooklive:9000/rpc/set_option?streambuffer=49152
http://mybooklive:9000/rpc/restart

Code: Select all

http://mybooklive:9000/rpc/set_option?streambuffer=65536

My friend i think the problem is about the file format. it is mp4.
this is the file.
http://extratorrent.com/torrent/1805198 ... 9836252838


I tried with another file which is bigger in size and bitrate. "Tree Of Life 1080p mkv" There is no lag with this movie.
I totally dont understand why it lags with stevie wonder's mp4 file.

How can i learn the present streambuffer on my MBL ?

Thanks.

it could be the settins they chose when they made they encoded it that your tv doesnt like on that file
did you create it or download it?
if you created it, what settings did you use?
if not, game over

If you look on the WD forums, there a lot of people talking about that
it has something to with the wd2go remote access feature of the nas
and something about it and the current firmware

in the world we live in, software and hardware has so many more variables for developers to deal with
but yeah I would agree the world needs better QA departments in a lot of companies these days
