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.

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.

Great before the last update

The last update has been frustrating. I used to download videos onto my phone, simply, without any issues. Now I’m forced to transcode it to a high low or medium version. I don’t want to transcode it. I don’t want to wait for the transcoding and I don’t want a duplicate, I just want the video in its original state. And why would anyone want to choose “high” when it makes the file size bigger than the original??
