Hi Folks,
the "old" version of Twonky Media Server is runnng well on Raspbian by doing this commands:

Code: Select all
mkdir /usr/local/twonkymedia/
cd /usr/local/twonkymedia/
wget http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/6.0.30/twonkymedia-kirkwood-6.0.30.zip
unzip twcdonkymedia-kirkwood-6.0.30.zip
chmod 700 twonkym* cgi-bin/* plugins/*
route add -net 224.0.0.0 netmask 240.0.0.0 dev eth0
/usr/local/twonkymedia/twonky_start.sh start


I tried to get a new version to run as well: http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/7.0.8-Special/ I picked the kirkwood version with no luck. Is anyone able to get this version to work? I think there is only a little step to success!

Greetings,
Thomas

The correct commands given above seem to have gotten managled a bit. This worked:

Code: Select all
mkdir /usr/local/twonkymedia/
cd /usr/local/twonkymedia/
wget http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/6.0.30/twonkymedia-kirkwood-6.0.30.zip
unzip twonkymedia-kirkwood-6.0.30.zip
chmod 700 twonkym* cgi-bin/* plugins/*
/usr/local/twonkymedia/twonkymedia.sh start


The Twonky Server is at http://<hostname>:9000

Create startup and shutdown scripts in /etc/rc3.d to automatically start and stop the software.

Thanks to the previous posters. I've been trying for a few days without any luck.
Find below the steps for the latest version of the Twonky 6.x.x branch. I've tested and it works with the latest image.

Code: Select all
mkdir /usr/local/twonkymedia/
cd /usr/local/twonkymedia/
wget http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/6.0.39/twonkymedia-kirkwood-6.0.39.zip
unzip twonkymedia-kirkwood-6.0.39.zip
chmod 700 twonkym* cgi-bin/* plugins/*
/usr/local/twonkymedia/twonkymedia.sh start

I installed Twonky 6 and registered it but whatever I try to open on my DLNA TV, it shows as not supported format (video, audio, pictures)

Code: Select all
mkdir /usr/local/twonkymedia/
cd /usr/local/twonkymedia/
wget http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/6.0.39/twonkymedia-kirkwood-6.0.39.zip
unzip twonkymedia-kirkwood-6.0.39.zip
chmod 700 twonkym* cgi-bin/* plugins/*
/usr/local/twonkymedia/twonkymedia.sh start

When I do the above all is fine until the final line where I get the error
Code: Select all
Starting /usr/local/twonkymedia/twonkymedia ... /usr/local/twonkymedia/twonkymedia.sh: 91: /usr/local/twonkymedia/twonkymedia.sh: /usr/local/twonkymedia/twonkymedia: not found

I know that the file is there, I can see it when I do 'ls' and it has the permissions -rwx------
Any ideas?

I got Twonky 7.0.8 running using

Code: Select all
mkdir /usr/local/twonky/
cd /usr/local/twonky/
wget http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/7.0.8-Special/twonky-kirkwood-special-7.0.8.zip
unzip twonky-kirkwood-special-7.0.8.zip
chmod 700 twonky* cgi-bin/* plugins/*
mkdir /var/twonky
/usr/local/twonky/twonky.sh start

Once up and running I used webmin to add the service at bootup and shut down.

Hi,

I have installed Webmin but I am having difficulty and setting up the start on boot for Twonky (im fairly new to this). What script did you use to get it to start.

Also is there any solution over Twonky changing the IP on its links when accessing outside the main network?


Many thanks

I have just discovered twonky and it seems to do what I want of my Pi. I would like to know if there is a demo version available before I pay for a license?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

You'll need to change the twonky.sh script to work nicely with Raspbian:

Change:

# Default-Start: 3 5
# Default-Stop: 0 1 2 6

to:

# Required-Stop:
# Default-Start: 2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop: 0 1 6

I did this and then used Webmin to start on boot and off we went :)

Got this from here: http://server.vijge.net/archive/twonky-dlna-with-video-thumbnails/

Hey you guys,

Anyone got the twonky-kirkwood-special-7.0.8.zip or newer on hand from a diffrent source?

That would be great so i can complete my project.
