Password protect part of the video collection

Post by Bascy » Wed Apr 06, 2011 8:24 am

I'm investigating the possibilities of Twonky to see if we can use it in the near future when our very old and bulky TV set is due for replacement. I'v got a readyNas setup, and trying out TwonkyServer on it.

Besides our music and photo collection, our video collection consists of a lot of movies for the kids, and a few movies for the parents and then a few movies i don't want the kids to see.

Is it possible to restrict access to those movies? i.e. password protecting a part of the library?
Any suggestion is welcome
