Hi there all
I'm a complete noob to Linux and the world of optware running on My Book World Edition (White Light), but am loving it.
Twonkymedia 4.4.4 is not quite working as I would like. I stream to a PS3 and mainly create m2ts files as this would appear to be the most convenient container that holds h264 video (>4.1 main profile) and AC3. Twonymedia does not handle the time of the file and sees them as near infinite. While it streams for a straightforward play, skipping does not work well at all. TVersity running on my PC does a great job for 95%+ of my files, but why have my PC running if I don't need to.
I have just installed MiniDLNA with no problems. I edited minidlna.conf and added /shares/Public/Videos as the media directory (not preceded with a 'V') and started minidlna. I keep all my videos in subdirectories of Videos. Presto, straight into the PS3.
However there are no 'titles to display' I tried copying files to the Videos directory and even creating a Video directory but to no avail.
Does anyone have any tips on having MiniDLNA find the video files and stream to PS3. I feel I'm so close and just missing a final trick here. Some questions I have include:
- Do I need to stop Twonkymedia?
- Do I need to be explicit about the V prefix to the media directory?
- Do I need to specify some file types and link them to a decoding engine (I think I read this in a post somewhere)?
Mnay thanks, Brett
