Sort of presentation videos.

Post by Wal » Sun Jan 30, 2011 6:43 pm

Hello from France,

I have a problem I can not solve: when viewing videos from directories, they are sorted by date of creation, not by filename as I would like so. What should you do to make this display correctly?

Of course I found that the bypass is to change the creation date to achieve a consistent presentation, but it is not at all satisfactory as a method!

My version of Twonky Sever is 6.0.28 and my PC is running XP Pro SP3 update.

Thanking you in advance.
Regards.

Wal

Are you using your own defined view? The reason I ask is on my setups, from Twonky 4 up to 6.0.30 videos have always been sorted by title without me needing to do anything about it.

Here is a post of mine that may help you tweak some of the nav tree sort issues

No I do not use personal definitions, only what comes standard. Perhaps you have dates in order to sort filenames. To check now enter a new file that should come between two existing and control that appears at the end of the list

Thank you.

I'll try to understand what you did. But it's very difficult for two reasons:
- I have no documentation on the incorporation of these files and no idea how is the relationship between file name and keyword file. When we talk about as I do not even know if the file name or title tag ...
- My English is very basic and I do not understand everything (even with the Google translation is very often folk)

Maybe you have links to documentation that discusses the creation of these XML files (not generalities, but in the precise use Twonky)

Thank you for the links, that's what I was looking for but find it because the choice of keywords into a search engine is particularly difficult in a foreign language.

I'll try to analyze and understand these texts.

Thank you again.
