Twonky does not see/serve .m4a files

Post by Budgie » Tue Aug 21, 2012 4:18 pm

Hi,
Recent BBC radio broadcast downloads have been appearing as .m4a files. As usual I have been transferring them to my NAS (Qnap TS219 Pro II) which is running QPKG version of Twonky 6.0.39.
Unfortunately Twonky does not appear to see or serve these files. I thought it was a tagging problem but all tagging is in place and looks OK. Can anybody suggest possible cause and solutions please.
Regards,
Budgie

Did you check to see if they are listed in the web interface?

If they are listed in the web interface, what client are you using to stream to,
and does it support .m4a?

In short, my mistake. BBC tagging uses tags not used by me so I didn't look in right place. Problem solved and Twonky is working well.
