Works well, but needs an update...

Love this app which seems to work pretty well, but third party remote is not compatible with the app.

You can only use the original Apple TV (4K) touch surface remote to control the playback of video. Trying to use a third party remote such as a harmony remote paired for use with the Apple TV will not allow the play bar timeline to be scrolled through. Also, CC is always turned on by default for every episode and has to be manually disabled. These are quite annoying!

Has worked good with Apple TV, 3rd gen

I was using this app on a Ruko, but everytime they updated it broke. So I bought 2 Apple TVs and installed the app. It has run flawlessly from the beginning. I have all my videos on a Synology NAS in the mkv package to avoid wear and tear. This app makes use of the hardware transcoder in the DS916+. The sound quality is very good as it will pass through the video to my equipment. The picture rivals the disk itself. As the hardware transcoder is used the the cpu hardly runs. I am totally satisfied with the app and the nas.

Still not functional

This is not a bad app, when it works. That said, there is still a critical flaw when used in conjunction with some synology products. In my case, the DS218PLAY. The issue is that any video transcoded by the NAS and downloaded to the app in iOS is unplayable, displaying only solid green video. This has been verified after lengthy exchanges and testing by Synology tech support, with remote access to unit. They are aware of the issue but their recommendation was to use VLC the player instead. Not really an acceptable response from a company that posts the ability to transcode and download video to your device as a key feature. Please fix.
