Thanks for the reply JRM75.
I have tried the Recreate Library Option. I have gone even as far as deleting everything and starting from scratch.
I have about 380 gig of media that I am trying to get tversity to serve up. No movies or video’s. Mostly pictures and music. All pictures are jpg and all music is mp3. Due to to its size, I have to keep them separated. I also ran older versions of Tversity without any issues in this same configuration. It ran without issue when I had it on Windows Media Center with XP SP3.
Once I migrated to just Windows XP SP3, its been problematic.
I have read a lot of people having issues with XP SP3 but I just can’t get myself to roll it back right now due to the risk of running into issues with other software that I have installed on the box.
I like the tweak option and have programming experience so I have no issues doing that. What files do I need to look at? The other thing I have tried is increasing the priority level of tversity.exe and mediaserver.exe. The results were mixed so I cannot say for sure if it improved the issue.
Let me know what else anyone can come up with.
[quote=“JRM75”]Have you tried the Recreate Library option (it resets the library)? I had this problem once, the fix to it is to put all your videos, photos,etc. in a single folder or directory. Then, when your about to add the item make sure the “search for” settings is checked for Video, Photo, and Audio. If you know how to program Tversity Media Sever (not the GUI itself) to take a higher priority for resources, you won’t need to do this. I have a folder named “My Media” in my Tversity Library with over 60 gigs of movies, audio, and few photos. Also, I heard that the Always Transcode option lets you transcode things on the fly automatically when you access an item and suspend them, it will keep transcoding the rest of the file while you’re streaming other stuff. Although, I think the Max amount files it can transcode simultaneously is 2-3 files, then the rest depends on your computer and network’s performance/speed.
Another thing, you should not use Service Pack 3. If you compare the service pack with Windows Vista (w/ it’s SP1,etc.), you will notice incompatbility problems with third-party software/programs. Note: if you uninstall Service Pack 3, you will probably have to reinstall any Internet Explorer Updates (this includes IE7, if you have it installed), and in some rare occasions you computer’s video driver and/or motherboard chipset software.[/quote]
