WD MyBookLive 2T on 02.42.03-027 : Core F/W
I needed my Samsung Blu-ray player to accept more type of Video files from my MBL on Twonky so I tried WD's DLNA. It worked better. I can play mkv, wmv, and DVD VOB files. Plus there is a picture with each file.
However, my other devices (Mostly music) did not connect to the MBL with WD DLNA. So decided to try having both on after going to back Twonky then back to DLNA. If WDMediaServerPatch.deb and Twonky5MediaServerPatch.deb worked for you then this should work:
1. Apply WDMediaServerPatch.deb if you have the TwonkyMedia server enabled.
2. Enable twonkymedia.sh script to be executed
logon on as root and type:
chmod +x /usr/local/twonkymedia-5/twonkymedia.sh
3a. To start TwonkyMedia server type:
3b. To stop TwonkyMedia server type:
Now you have two DLNA Media servers running. I have tested both running at the same time.
Control WD's DLNA through the UI dashboard: MBL_IP/UI Settings > Media
Control TwonkyMedia through the web page: MBL_IP:9000/config sharing
I found the WD DLNA folder structure too cumbersome. So I stop sharing media on Public and created a new share "Videos" using MBL_IP/UI Settings > Shares and enabled Videos to share media.
Then I symbolically linked the folders I wanted(Movies and TV-Shows) from Shared Videos to the new Videos
logon on as root
cd /DataVolume/shares/ ln -s /DataVolume/shares/Public/Shared\ Videos/Movies/ Videos/ ln -s /DataVolume/shares/Public/Shared\ Videos/TV-Shows/ Videos/
Go to the dashboard: MBL_IP/UI Settings > Media and rebuild the database
