When can we expect some documentation?

Post by ejhh » Sat Mar 21, 2009 11:05 pm

I purchased Twonkymedia some time ago and am disappointed to see that there continues to be NO documentation for this software.

I could perhaps understand if it was free software but I paid money for this. While I do have it working well on my Buffalo Linkstation Live NAS, I would like to explore some of the more advanced features but with no "Help" facility and no documentation I don't understand some of the configuration options.

Can we expect some documentation to be written?
Will it be this year or next?

Come on guys! Professional software should contain documentation.
Please let me know
thanks

What specifically do you want documentation on?

I agree, things like the following would be nice and probably avoid a lot of unnecessary trawling through forums and repeated questions:

- command line parameters
- location of configuration files
- format of configuration files

Im very new to Twonkymedia server and have only been trialing for a few days now. So far i've found it to be a great product that seems to do what I want. The only thing I really would like is some documentation.

Yes I'd appreciate some more documentation too, especially given the reluctance to support NAS installs, I spent a lot of time recently poking around in the dark getting it working. Eventually I did, but it would have been much quicker with some good doc.

I'd like to see -
> Any command line arguments to start or communicate with the server
> All the ini file settings and what they should be used for
> XML tree documentation (I know we have that separately already, just want to make sure we don't lose it)
> Advanced configuration such as Transcoding and making things behave differently for different clients

I really believe Twonky is a great product and CAN do a great many things if only you can figure out how ;-)

Full ack, this is the minimum of docu which should be available
