Large video files problem

Post by mackowiakp » Tue Apr 12, 2011 9:00 am

This post is dubled from LINUX section because it is not Linux related problem. I have several ripped BluRay DVD`s. Such video file has 7 to 8 GB size. I use TwonkyServer on MANDRIVA Linux (32 bit). No large files are listed in "Video" folder. How can the problem be resolved? I use EXT4 as filesystem type wich support files larger than 4 GB. Peviously I used MediaTomb on the same server and large file problem was not present. Any idea?

I'll mention this to our engineers. Is anyone else having problems with this?

I haven't tried 7 GB files but I have a number of 4 GB+ files that play happily through Twonky 6.0.32 (Ubuntu 9.04 64 bit with EXT4).
No longer running Twonky

So probably it is a problem of libraries. As I know TWONKY is 32 bit application compiled on UBUNTU. I use MANDRIVA (32-bit) and MediaTomb works properly. But MediaTomb was taken by me from Mandriva repos.
