Twonky RMVB Support

Postby madnug » Sun Apr 27, 2008 1:19 pm


I noticed that the Twonky MediaServer 4.4.4 does not pick up RMVB files during folder scans. Is this a limitation on Twonky?

I have successfully played RMVB files on PS3 via the attached USB harddirve, but my PS3 can't see the RMVB files over the UPnP connection to Qnap.

Any advise on this?

I am also having the same problem. I'm trying to stream an rmvb file to my xbox360 using TwonkyMedia v4.4.9

I thought I read that Twonky supported RealMedia rmvb. Is it a version issue or am I just doing something wrong?
