File Indexing

Post by HipsterBrewfus » Mon Aug 04, 2014 2:23 pm

hi, this is my last ditch effort, Im hoping someone can help me!

I recently hooked up my external HD (Western Digital 1TB My Book) Belkin n600 router to use as a media server of sorts. And it works!

Except for one issue...it only indexes the first 5000 files. Normally, for the purposes I want to use it for (video) that would be perfect, except it indexes all the photos and music I have also, eating up the majority of the 5000 files. is there a way to just make sure it indexes the "video" folder of my server?

I know that some of the routers that have a dlna server in the firmware
have put limits on the max items it will index, mostly due to cpu and ram constraints
If the port of the twonky server is running on 9000
change x.x.x.x to the ip of your router,
and open the url in a browser, it will probably report back 5000

Code: Select all

http://x.x.x.x:9000/rpc/get_option?maxitems
It "might" be possible, probably not, to be able to change it
and IF it does, it will "most likely" revert back to 5000 on a server or router restart
normally one would put a number after the = sign, but the following makes it empty, which is no limit
I repeat, it might not work, but worth an attempt

Code: Select all

http://x.x.x.x:9000/rpc/set_option?maxitems=
