did you have issues streaming mp4 or mkv files? It seems WMS doesn't support these.

comment How can I copy a directories contents alone?
shell scripting is programming, just as much as say, javascript is. However, you'll probably get a better answer on ServerFault.

comment How to enable hardware virtualization on Asus motherboard
FYI on my M4A78LT mobo, it was called "secure virtual machine" under the CPU tab. Sometimes I wish manufacturers wouldn't try to dumb things down.

comment Audio issues during KVM switch
dude, you're the man! I thought it was the KVM until I plugged the speaker directly into the back of my PC, and it still dropped volume when switching to the other PC. I think the root cause is that the KVM disconnects all USB (as my USB speaker soundbar cuts out completely).
