It would also be helpful to note that /usr is hidden from finder.

If you want to access the config file, you'll need to do it through Terminal.app. If you're not comfortable using a Terminal, you might want to contact a nerdier friend, haha.

I can give you a brief run-down here:

1. Open Terminal.app
2. Typing this will change your current directory to the one specified:

Code: Select all

cd /usr/local/mediaserver/
3. Nano is a good editer for newbies. Commands are listed at the bottom.

Code: Select all

nano twonkyvision-mediaserver.ini
Edit it, then save it.

I should warn you: you have infinite modification capabilities while in terminal, and while most are protected and can only be accessed through a sudo, you must take care not to damage things.

Good luck.
