Specify new Media folders

Post by Abernus » Fri Apr 30, 2010 12:00 am

Hi all,

I recently bought a ReadyNas DUO with the aim of streaming media to my PS3 (this problem will be posted in teh PS3 sections) I have a gone throught the tutorial videos and now have a fair idea of how to use the server on my NAS. However I want to use my own folders for the media not the default Twonky ones.

On my NAS box I have a folder called Media ( no permissions set on this) within this there are 3 sub folders, Photos, Music and Movies. I want to be able to use my Movies folder as the default location. In the Sharing tab I added the following: //readynas/Media/Movies manualy as browsing only shows "/" However when I rescan it finds no media (there are 3 short films in there)

Can anyone advise?

Maybe you should check where "contentbase" points at? Unfortunately in the current versions it's no longer visible/adjustable from the interface. Either have a look at your ini-file or try
http://twonky-ip:9000/rpc/get_option?contentbase
obviously you have to adjust your ip (and possibly the port). To change the setting try
http://twonky-ip:9000/rpc/get_option?co ... =your-path

Hope it helps, Georg

I tried as you suggested, I put the following in:

http://192.168.1.14:9000/rpc/get_option ... YNAS/Media

The responce I got was: PROPERTY NOT FOUND!

Any suggestions, also where is the ini file located when the Twonky server is installed direct on my NAS drive?

That might just mean that no value is set for that property i.e. it is using a default value.

Try setting it to what you want it to be anyway with http://twonky-ip:9000/rpc/set_option?co ... =your-path and then read it back out again with get_option.

You shouldn't need to prefix the path to your folders with //readynas as that is only to refer to your ReadyNAS from elsewhere on the network. For example, my Linkstation is at //wilma on the network, my contentbase is set to /mnt/disk1 and my music folder is just Music as it sits at /mnt/disk1/Music on the LS.
