Has anyone manged to get the Optware version of Ushare to serve media files to Windows Media Player, is so what did you do?
I installed on2share on my laptop to get access via the MP11. picked up all the Upnp in the house…. nice bit of kit …..
WMP is a upnp server, not a client
although ushare streams video nicely to xbox 360.
only problem is, the implementation doesn't work for my music,
it only shows 1000 files, and does it 'flat' i.e. no directory structure :-/
can't comment on th on2share program that etsme mentioned..
I can see it is a media server in window media player it just says 'no files found'
Similar but slightly different behaviour for me.
On2Share for WMP11 shows mp3s and avis.
On2Share for MediaCenter 2005 on the same PC only shows the mp3s. It never has any video files listed. Yet the same files Can be played over samba/windows file sharing.
I've not checked the 1000 file limit.
I ended up uninstalling as using it to view videos through media center was the main reason for trying it out.
try this out … you will love it…. fresh out the box, or shall I say in "the box" twonky will watch any ./ you tell it to and serve it up to any device you have on your network (360 WMP nokia 95) anything!
give it a go…source files found here
you can compile it from your SSH with:
or run ~ ipkg update
~ ipkg install twonkymedia
works fine for me on all platforms and media formats, including "Ubuntu" "Vista ultimate" and "Xbox 360" HDwmv files and FLAC.
i tried what you sugested through optware and with the wget command and neither worked. I'm really keen on getting the My Book working with my Xbox 360, its the only reason i'm hacking it.
i did try running the Optware updater and Twonkymedia isn't on the list of apps, the wget command just brings up a 404
well the wget works for me…

are you sure that your WD has access to the internet? ect… DNS set up correct and things like that ?
I have just installed Twonky 5 mins ago and am now streaming music to my laptop!!! This is after failing with both Ushare and MediaTomb, ok I have to pay but with the £ / $ exchange rate at the moment I think its a steal!! Its brilliant well worth it.
Worth every penny…………….
the lads/lass's that wrote this software know what us "media heads" want.
