Price

Twonky charges $ 19,95 for the Server, but there's a trail period of 30 days. You can add the key in the webinterface once you purchased it.

Installing TwonkyVision on Unslung 6.8

Twonky has self-installing NSLU2 packages. The installation on Unslung is very simple: 1. Get the latest Version for the from twonky.com (March 2010: Version 6.0.23 http://www.twonkyforum.com/downloads/6.0.23/) 2. Unpack the package und follow the installer (don't forget to enable telnet and set the HTTP-Port of your Slug to 80 if you have changed it (you can do it in the Webinterface). You can change it back to your old port after installation 3. Install it and go to the Webinterface to make the configuration

Thats it - have fun

Added lines 106-152:

Lance Benson - ADDITION - July 10, 2006

Here is a way to set up twonkymedia manually under unslung 5.5 or 6.8.

This assumes you are going to put your music files in a publicly shared directory on the slug, e.g., "Music". When you have telnetted into the slug, this directory can be referred to as "/public/Music".

Copy all your music files and playlists into the Music directory (folder, from the Windows viewpoint).

Download and unzip the twonkymedia files for the NSLU2, e.g to a Windows or *nix machine with access to the public data on the slug.

Copy the file "twonkymedia" to the Music directory.

Create a minimal ini file to tell twonkymedia where to find the music and its database. You can do this in the controlling PC or by telnetting into the slug and using vi. The file should be called twonkyvision-mediaserver.ini, and should contain, at a minimum, the following three lines. It should also be in the Music directory.

contentdir=/public/Music friendlyname=MyTwonky? dbdir=/public/Music

Telnet or ssh into the slug and create a startup script in the directory, \opt\etc\init.d. Give a name in the form S99twonky, where the "S" says that the script will be run on startup, and the two-digit number gives the order in which the script will be run. Nothing else depends on twonky, so it can have a high number. Use vi or a similar editor to create a file with contents like the following, for instance.

  1. !/bin/sh
  2. if the server is already running

if [ -n "`pidof twonkymedia`" ]; then

   # kill it
   /bin/killall twonkymedia 2>/dev/null

   # give the server time to shut down
   sleep 2

fi

( cd /public/Music/;

 /public/Music/twonkymedia -D >twonkylog 2>&1)

This script kills any currently running twonkymedia items, and then runs twonkymedia from the /public/Music directory. This also logs any error messages to a file called twonkylog. This log can tell you if you have any problems in, for instance, your playlists.

When you shut down and restart the slug, twonkymedia should be running, its database will be created in /public/Music, and the .ini file will have been greatly expanded. You can perform the reboot by entering Do_Reboot in your telnet or ssh session. After the reboot has completed you can telnet or ssh back in, and run "ps -ef" to see that twonkymedia is running (with maybe a dozen or more threads).

To recapitulate, you can set up twonky on unslung by copying the program to the public directory which contains your music, creating a 3-line .ini file for the program in the same directory, and creating a short startup script in the /opt/etc/init.d directory. This was tested in 6.8, but should work in 5.5 as well. Other installation locations and procedures are of course possible.

Revisions and corrections welcome.

Wibbleman - UPDATE - March 2006 - UnSlung5?.5beta & Twonky Trial V3.1. I got this running fine with Netgear MP101? as the Player. Theres a few things to watch out for, the install script seemed to do some wierd things, so i edited it for safety before i ran it. You may need to change things like TCP port (default 9000 clashed with my SlimServer) and note the Trial executable is name "twonkymedia-trial", so need to change install/init.d scripts etc. Works fine, and about 10-50x less CPU to stream media, drive the web interface or index a music collection than slimserver does...

The mediaserver tries to find a configuration file called twonkyvision-mediaserver.ini in the current directory. There is no template delivered with the mediaserver distribution, but the mediaserver creates one using default values if it does not exist. Thus, run the mediaserver once, terminate it and then edit the file.

When testing the MediaServer?, you probably start with the "AV Media Controller.exe" from the Intel tools package to check out the media tree.
