Ratings and Reviews
Great except for the last update
This app worked great for me until the last update. Now, when watching videos on my iPad, while on the same network as the NAS itself, it opens up DS File and plays them through that app. On top of that, 99% of the time, it opens the video 1 second before the end, plays that 1 second, then returns me to DS Video. So I have to tap on the video progress bar within that one second to scrub to a different location and can have more time to get to the beginning. Synology, please fix huge and pointless annoyance immediately.
Good, could easily be better
Once you get accustomed to some quirks this is a good and functional app. Simple is good, it is, and I hope it stays that way. Navigating your library isn’t super intuitive initially but you’ll figure it out. If you Synology guys could add a repeat/loop video option like you have in the mobile and browser-based apps that would make my day for real. Oh, and when you use the search function in ‘all videos’ you can swipe to pop down to the second video in the search results (why not the first? I don’t know) but swiping left or right just pops you back up to the search bar and renders the feature basically useless unless you get lucky and the second one in the search results happens to be the one you want to watch. It would be real nice if that got fixed. Thanks for the good work, guys.
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.
