I just want to make sure i do not lose any files.
No, you will not lose any files.
Although they have done their best to look good, people somehow have more success following my post to enable SSH.
Feel free to use any of the how-to's
feedback is appreciated
I'll do that.
Just to clarify. The file paths won't change either right? if an itunes library point to a song on public/music/…. that file will still be found in that location right?
Lastly, i am doing this to install TwonkyMedia (http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/forum/t-46375/twonkymedia-on-mybook-possible-clue). Any other advice you might have would be greatly appreciated.
No, don't worry…
The only thing that will change is access to your Linux-device
I had mediatomb and twonky on the worldbook. Although I liked twonky at first I stopped using it because it didn't allow XBMC (the media player on the xbox) to see the corresponding subtitle file.
I'm now using the worldbook as an SMB-share.
I wrote an install tutorial here….. [http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/forum/t-72617/installing-twonky]
I also use XBMC, and it finds the files on my worldbook perfectly. It's just a shared drive on the network ( i think). I never understood what the advantage of streaming to the XBMC would be if it can just read the files.
The reason i need twinky now is for my New Linn DS (very excited about this). The Linn needs Twonky to stream to it. I was going to get another drive just for the FLAC files my Linn will need, but i have room on my world book so for now…..
In your opinion, can the world book handle Twonky just fine? Is Twonky meant for a stronger processor? If i were to get a new drive for the twonky would you recommend another worldbook?
The worry i have is that I have Utorrent writing to my world book all the time, and that twonky (and by extension the sound quality) may suffer from it.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
