today I got my WD Wireless Pro that I want to use to stream my music library in the car.
As the Audi MMI supports only maximum 10'000 Songs on a SD card or harddisc, I was looking for a DLNA solution, where this limit does not exist.
I added my 75'000 songs on a directory 'music' and the default Twonky Server is offering them to the MMI for streaming. So far, so good. It works, but is a bit slow, and, when searching on the directory level, the songs in an album are presented in alphabetical order, not the order on the album (even, if the filename is 01 - Money for nothing and 09 - Brothers in Arms it sorts first 'Brothers in Arms' and so on ...).
Therefore, I wanted to try out the Plex Media Server. However, I'm quite cautious, and when the system tells me, that the installation of Plex will deactivate Twonky I'm not hitting 'yes' with ease ...
Basically, I have a solution, that works, but I'm curious, if the other opion is better
Anyone of you tried both versions?
Are there significant differnces when streaming to a DLNA client?
One thing I already found out is the .plexignore file, to exclude directories and files from being added to the library. For my use, I only want to stream the music in the music directory.
Once Plex is installed, can it be deinstalled and Twonkey be activated again?
Thanks for your thoughts and help!
