That works already. You may need ffmpeg installed and configured (see the guides on Transcoding), but it already works for me with Twonky v6.

Or have a look at a script (tw-video-scraper) I just released, to automatically retrieve screenshots and movie posters from the internet. A guide to setting up ffmpeg thumbnails can be found here, but obviously I like my script better :wink: because it produces more relevant thumbnails

Great, I haven't read all documentation yet.
Many thanks.

As Internet Radio is yet not supported, I take that Internet TV i a way ahead :)

However it would be really awsome to be able to play a youtube video-playlist on my TV.

Dear Twonky,
Feature: Adapt file name/extension to transcoding target type.

When transcoding files from flac to wav for example, Twonky should present the file type differently.
On the fly transcoding can only start when the file is selected on the client. When the client is not showing the source file (because some clients filter on file extension) there is no way to start transcoding.

For example: When for the sony bravia transcoding on the fly for flac to wav is selected, Twonky should present all *.flac files as *.wav in order to have them listed on the client. Then when one of the listed files (*.wav) is selected transcoding is started and the stream is send to the Bravia.

Please let me know what you think.
Kind regards Michel

I've passed your feedback onto the people who do transcoding for us. :D

I think it's still not possible with 6.0.38:
it should be possible to enter multiple Artists (e.g. like it already works with Genres).

Artist1,Artist2 in the mp3 Artist tag will lead in Twonky tree to:

+1 for configurable blacklist. /srv is where I would like to place media to be served by TwonkyServer.

I hope it will be supported very soon. It's the only way the Twonky software will ever be considered a decent media player. The issues comes from the fact Twonky was originated in germany that does not need subs really as everything is dubbed. Once started international sales the demand became higher and higher...

New Feature Requests: server auto update

Could be great if under config tab, we can have an "update" option, that downloads the latest server files & let us chose whenever to install (auto/manual).
Now, all manual is pain in the a..... :?


New Feature Requests: Hierarchical keywords with jpg's

Posted: Tue Aug 14, 2012 4:11 pm

Hello Twonky-Team,

more and more image programs allow hierarchical keywords of image collections, i.e

holiday->2011-> hawaii

It would be nice to reflect such a structure in the keyword navtree.
Proposal (for the above example perhaps using XP keywords property): "/friends/smith/ben;/friends/smith/mary;/holiday/2011/hawaii"

For the XML NavTree language there would be a mixture of "buildon=res" and "buildon=pv:av:Keywords" necessary.

I hope I have made me clear, english is not my native language.

Add the ability to create additional media types.
E.g. audiobooks need completely different NAV trees ( instead of artist), details (e.g. description) and functions (e.g. stikt order, never shuffle) compared to music albums. Also the genre type are very different (e.g. 'EasyListening' makes no sense for audiobooks, 'Crime' makes no sense for music) Currently I need to work with multiple Twonky instances.

Also a developer documentation would be very usefull. (Creating NAV trees, changing appearance on the WEB page and in DNLA clients..., probably someone can create this from the forum posts - e.g. phibertron's posts are extremly usefull)

Your best bet is to also post this on the community site

Segregated Categories or Archives

Posted: Sat Jun 27, 2015 10:11 pm

Some of my CD's are aging, and I've come across a couple that succumb to bit rot. To preserve my collection, I've re-ripped my entire collection to Flac. Side benefit is I have an archive of high quality files along side my mp3 archive. Downside, I have duplicates of many albums.

It would be nice if I could index these files, either as a separate server listing [ie. for HQ content], or a segregated category within the database that would not blend the listings of both archives [ie flac files indexed in a separate category (or listing) from all the rest]

I could see such a feature handy for parents who do not want "juniors" content mixed with their own, or spouses who have opposing interest [ie. Anne Murry vs Anthrax].

Nav Tree by Shared Folder

Posted: Sat Jul 09, 2016 2:58 pm
by maultby
My video library is structured into 3D Movies, Movies, TV Shows.
I've used playlists (wpl) to separate 3D Movies and Movies and this works fine.
My TV Shows has a deep folder structure and consequently I need that folder structure to show when browsing TV Shows. To use playlists for this would require that I rename all the video files and any embedded titles to have their folders prefixed which would be tedious with 900 files. A nice solution would be to be able to assign a NavTree to a Shared Folder (with the option to show file-name instead of embedded title when By Folder is the Nav Tree type)? Alternatively an option within a playlist to show the file names referenced by their Folders?
Can either be done with current TwonkyServer 8.3? if not can this be added to the wish list?

I have been using Twonky for some time now. Recently, my network topology changed so that I'm using multiple subsets (i.e.,,, - some of which are connect via OpenVPN tunnels. Without forwarding multicast traffic between these networks, it would be great if it was possible to use the existing REST API to pass ipaddress locations to my TwonkyServer of devices that can render content such as AppleTVs, Xboxs (EX:""&static=True). This could proactively initiate a conversations between the devices and create a uuid profile for that device in twonky's db so that I can Beam to them at a later date using the REST API Beam functionality. As it stands, these devices are not discoverable by Twonky, so, in some cases, I'm using 3rd party apps and remote exposure ( to pass locally via upnp which is less secure for me. If there is another way that I'm unaware of of getting them cataloged as Twonky renderers without going through multicast discovery please let me know.

Thanks! Michael

A setting in audio playback options that disables and bypasses the volume control, guaranteeing that no data or offset is changed on playback. An indicator can show MAX VOLUME to insure that the user is aware.

If this feature were in Twonky, it would be unique in the industry and add another compelling reason for audiophiles to use Twonky.
