I have all my media in /Public in the default directories of Shared Music, Shared Pictures and Shared Videos. The default setting of the Twonky server to index Public worked fine, but I didn’t like the way it pulled album art out of music.
I changed the sharing settings from /Public (All content types) to /Public/Shared Music (music), /Public/Shared Pictures (photos), and /Public/Shared Videos (videos), and saved the settings It started indexing right away.
An hour later it found no videos, a couple dozen songs and less than 100 photos from a collection of 10K files! I’ve restarted the server, rebuilt the index, etc to no avail. Change the settings back to /Public (all types) and it finds everything again without problem.
What am I doing wrong? Why can’t I restrict sharing to certain folders of certain file types?
