Online Media on TMS 5.1.2 at WHS

Post by Bernhard » Tue Apr 13, 2010 9:26 am

Hi there,

I´m running TMS 5.1.2 on an German-language Acer Aspire EasyStore H340.

I´m trying to use Online Media like Youtube or Shoutcast Radio. But after configurating the tab "OnlineMedia" like shown at the "Intermediate Tutorial 3: Advanced Settings for TwonkyMedia server on PC or Mac" from PacketVideo on Youtube, the TMS did not show the online media neither at the Music tab nor at the video tab!

Please tell me what I have to do to see the media!

Thanks in advance!!

Hi Bernhard,

I am running the same configuration but haven't tried so far to use online media.
However - you may need to allow the dedicated web address to go online. Whenever I try to open a website from the server I'm getting a waring message and I have to confirm that the outside communication is allowed. I can add the URL to a white list. I think you would need to do the same for the youtube or shoutcast URLs.
I haven't tried this but this is where I would start to investigate.
