Installing Twonkymedia UPnP Server

This will allow proper UPnP serving to Playstation 3 & XBOX360 Consoles - something alot more interesting now they both support mpeg4 (Divx/Xvid) Codecs. UPnP is improved in 1.04 firmwares but this will add the feature to 1.03 Firmwares. This tutorial is originally from here - PS3 Forums

TwonkyMedia isn't free, but it includes a 30-day trial. According to their website, it currently costs $39.95 for a TwonkyMedia license (version 4.4.x). Twonky don't provide telephone or email support for software installed on to a DNS-323, so be happy that it is working for you properly before buying the license key.

Which Version to Install?

Twonky Server version 4.4.18 installs most easily and works well, but is no longer being updated for more recent UPnP clients or getting new features. Additionally it allows you to edit the navigation trees for example to include A-Z sorting of large music or video collections.

Currently the latest version is 6.0.1, which can also install and run without problem, but requires some configuration changes after installation. Extending the navigation tree requires editing XML files, or at least replacing the default XML files with downloaded versions (eg from this QNAP forum post

Downloading the Twonky software

Download links for 4.X, 5.X and 6.X versions of the software are available from this links on this page of the Twonky website.


Enable telnet

To install TwonkyMedia, you must first enable a telnet server on the DNS-323. Some might consider this hacking, and it does require some basic knowledge of Linux, so if you're not comfortable with Linux or don't want to modify your DNS-323's startup process and config, I would not recommend proceeding. (This is not a permanent change and can be easily backed out.)

Telnet Install Instructions

Another way (and the way I went) was to install MLDonkey, which not only installs Telnet but also a edonkey/torrent interface for your DNS-323, all by copying a few files via ftp.

NOTE = Since the firmware 1.05, the DNS-323 has BitTorrent support.

Install TwonkyMedia 4.4.18
