Non recongnized directories and (XMP) Tags

Post by elgonzo » Fri Sep 07, 2012 10:05 am

Hi,
Non recongnized directories
#######################
I installed the new Version of TwonkyServer 7.0.9 on a Debian Linux Server.
Now i mentioned, that there are some Directories, witch are not recognized of twonky.
This is the tree:
The contentdirectory is /multimedia
The 5 missing directories are here (not origininal Name, but the same lenght of name):
/multimedia/DigitalPhoto/Holidays/dir1
/multimedia/DigitalPhoto/Holidays/dir2
....
/multimedia/DigitalPhoto/Holidays/dir5

So i set the parameter "autotree=4" in twonkyserver.ini.
Now i saw 4 of 5 directories, but i didn't know, why i ccould not see the fifth directory (dir5).
The length of the absolute pathname of dir4 was 56 characters.
The length of the missing directories was 57 character. So i renamed the directory and now i can see it too.
My questions:
1. Is this a bug or controled by a parameter in the twonkyserver.ini?
2. "autotree" is obsolet since Version 6.
But what means defaultview=advanceddefault ??

XMP Tag
#######
I use XMP Tags to have a better overlook of my JPG's with my mediaplayer (WD HD Live, or on Android-Tag with bubbleUpnp).
Xmp.dc.subject XmpBag 1 Text 08/2010

My aim was to create the tag "Text 08/2010".
But to my surprise, now i can see the tag "Text 08" which contains another tag "2010".
So is this a real rule to use the character "/" to create sub-tags?

I havent seen an issue with folder depth or folder name lenght
not to say that one doesnt exist
are the folder symbolic links?

Yup, autotree is not used anymore

It is the default view.xml file to be given to a client
there a couple of different ones, they can be changed per client in the config page

I know in the past, they were seperated with ;
I guess / is another delimiter they may have added for photo tags

Thanx for answering!
I just can tell you the results of my multiple tries..
"autotree" should be obsolet, but it helps me to see deeper sub-directories
Also the use of shorter names of the directory.
There are no symbolic links.

Q: Is there a detail log of the process, which is responsible for the update of the twonky-database?
