Flash video support

Post by robmck » Wed Jan 30, 2008 1:44 am

I'm trying out twonkyvision and am liking it better than all the other upnp servers I've tried. One problem: it doesn't show flash video (flv) files. My archos 705 player happily plays flv files (either local, or streamed from other upnp servers).

Any idea how to get this to work?

I couldn't find anything for it in the ini file.

While we're at it, what about other media types twonkyvision doesn't know about? E.g. my Archos client can display raw NEF files from my camera. Would love to be able to browse these through twonkyvision.

You can edit the device profile file yourself to enable the abovementioned filetypes.

You may need to do a little bit of sussing out and trial and error and make sure that you back up the original file.

Cool! Is resources\clients.db where I need to play? Any hints on what to look for in the logs to find the device name?
