    • Not really a plugin but close enough :) Had to try it out. Install is really for Fedora and most of the guides I found for installing on Debian were for version 6. Here is what I did to get it working (haven't tried transcoding yet and still playing).

      Source Code

      1. apt-get install chkconfig ia32-libs
      2. wget http://d1ctzy5vhd42ul.cloudfront.net/twonky-i386-glibc-2.2.5-special-7.1.2.sh
      3. chmod +x twonky-i386-glibc-2.2.5-special-7.1.2.sh
      4. ./twonky-i386-glibc-2.2.5-special-7.1.2.sh
      5. chown -R root:root /usr/local/twonky/*
      6. mkdir /var/twonky
      7. Change lines in /usr/local/twonky/twonky.sh and /etc/init.d/twonkyserver (not sure if both need to be changed but I did anyway).

    • Yup..more or less what I did to install Twonky 7.1.2 Special.

      Intial impressions:

      What I like (so far):
      • Fairly easy to install (would be even easier if someone wrote a plugin :mrgreen: )
      • Easier to use webgui.
      • Media Index presented to client is more intuitive than minidlna
      • The Album View for Videos as it more-or-less maps to my folder structure 1:1
      • The Aggregation feature....good if you have several sources of media scattered around the house (and not all on OMV)
      • Works well with my Samsung TV (better than minidlna)

      What I don't like:
      • Time taken to scan the media (I have a large collection)
      • Trial period is very short...60 days would have been better
      • Confusing product packages...what's TwonkeyManager all about ???
      • $20 price tab...$10 would be reasonable for home users :mrgreen:

    • I agree with your likes and dislikes. I would add to the likes the fact you can view by date. This shows me items recently added and most likely to wathc. I would add to the dislikes that transcoding is not easy to configure (haven't done it yet). I don't understand why they don't have an Ubuntu/Debian installer.

      TwonkyManager doesn't make sense to me either but since there is no linux package, it made the decision easy :)

      Nope :( I didn't like installing ia32-libs and all the dependencies it has... but it does work.

      I agree. My past experience with transcoding has been bad. I tried twonky in the past running under WinXP Quad core and the clients struggled to stream the movies because the server could not keep up...and these were only DVD VOB files..i.e. Standard Definition. So for me Trancoding is a non-flyer on my HP-N40L microserver which has low-spec AMD dual-cores. There's no way they can transcode HD on the fly AND stream simultaneously. May be the new s/w is a bit more efficient...may try it.

      Their target market is embedded devices ..i.e. NAS's and as such they sell to OEM's who embed/package the s/w so twonky don't seem to spend much time packaging for individual consumers.

    • This post is very old and for OMV 0.5 which is based on Debian Squeeze. The ia32 package name has changed. Try apt-get install ia32-libs

    • This package is only in the i386 repository, which is not active by default.

      Source Code

      1. dpkg --add-architecture i386
      2. apt-get update


      Then try to install it again.

    • twonky is installed ...
      got my version from here (direct link to 7.1.2-special here)
      but still not running correctly ...

      Source Code

      1. root@mynas:/# ./etc/init.d/twonkyserver start

      3. Starting twonkywebdav ... Twonky Version 7.1.2
      4. For image conversion and scaling the TwonkyServer utilizes ImageMagick. For details on the license please see /usr/local/twonky/cgi-bin/convert-readme.txt

      the lib is located in libgcc1, which is installed ... but only x64, i think (folder /i386-linux-gnu is missing in /libs)
      after installing the i386 version via

      1. apt-get install libgcc1:i386

      twonky runs like a charm ;)

    • Strange... I don't have libgcc1:i386 installed. I am using Twonky 7.2 though.

    • Since I use twonky as my main media server right now, I would like to share updated instruction with latest version of twonky installation:

      1. We need to install ia32-libs package and 7zip (as I got some issues to extract with default zip):

      Source Code

      1. apt-get install chkconfig ia32-libs
      2. sudo apt-get install p7zip-full

      2. Creating directory on OMV root and moves there:

      Source Code

      1. mkdir /usr/local/twonkymedia
      2. cd /usr/local/twonkymedia

      3. Download latest twonky media server which could be find here (please be noted that we need Linux i686 glibc version for our installation):

      Source Code

      1. wget http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/8.3/twonky-i686-glibc-2.9-8.3.zip

      4. Extract downloaded file by command:

      Source Code

      1. 7z x twonky-i686-glibc-2.9-8.3.zip

      5. Open .ini file in same directory:

      Source Code

      1. nano twonkyserver-default.ini

      and add there command for port which will be twonky GUI port for access:

      Source Code

      1. suppressmenu=divAutoShare
      2. httpport=9000

      Save & quit file.

      6. Run script for file and execute after to start up our server:

      Source Code

      1. chmod +x twonky.sh
      2. ./twonky.sh start

      7. Open and to add line for autorun twonky:

      Source Code

      1. nano /etc/rc.local

      add in file below line and twonky will be loaded automatically after reboot/startup of system.

      Source Code

      1. /usr/local/twonkymedia/twonky.sh start

      Save & quit file.

      ...and that's it. Server is now running and boot up on each server start. Twonky media server now available under GUI on your domain.page:9000 port.

      Please also keep in mind that above manual prepared for x86 architecture as my system runs on OMV 2.2.5 i386 due to lack of powerful hardware. :) So if need x64 architecture, please download media server and library file in first step accordingly.

      Have a fun!
    • Hello,

      great, I can use my twonky on my OMV server now! I use the x64 version. But the twonky doesnt boot with server start. An Error at boot says Failed to start /etc/rc.local Compatibility .

      Maybe a little failure from me.
      Can you help me?
