  1. Thank you s much, its working fine now. Now the CPU usage is up to 70% depending the video files, and in iPad I choosed to show it in 720P only. Download Text Editor in Package Center. Stop Plex Media Server and uninstall it in Package Center. Download and install Plex Media Server again (im using the latest PlexMediaServer-1.18.7.2457-77cb9455c-x86_64) Go into Control Panel -> User and give your account read/write permission for Plex. In File Station you will be able to see the Plex folder now. Find the .xml file and add VaapiDriver="i965" at the end before /> and save it. example mine ended like this: WanTotalMaxUploadRate="74000" VaapiDriver="i965"/> The box "Use hardware acceleration when available" in Plex can now be ticked. Thanks once again for the help from everyone
  2. How do I see if it contains any files, by SSH? Do you have the same motherboard, DSM, bootloader and Plex thats hardware trancoding working for you? Shouldnt I be able to have the trancoding in Plex box ticked, and when its needed the transcoding should do the work? Now its either have it ticked with video lagging, or unticked with playable video but high CPU usage. Thanks in advance
  3. Im not sure, i want hardware transcoding to work like i wrote here:
  4. Where can i find the driver pack and how to install it? Im using: DSM 6.2.1-23824 Update 6 1.04b J4105 Thanks in advance
  5. I still havent figured it out what driver to use, where I can find what driver I have now? Is it the driver for the motherboard? Im using: DSM Version 6.2.1-23824 Update 6 Bootloader 1.04b When I SSH to see if transcoding is working I get this: Could not chdir to home directory /var/services/homes/admin: No such file or directory admin@SilverFang:/$ cd /dev/dri admin@SilverFang:/dev/dri$ cat /usr/syno/etc/codec/activation.conf {"success":true,"activated_codec":["mpeg4part2_enc","h264_dec","h264_enc","mpeg4 part2_dec","aac_dec","aac_enc","vc1_dec","vc1_enc","hevc_dec","ac3_dec"],"token": "26e42f20ea913ecb6237e691394c6d77"} Are these 2 video files working for you smoothly with hardware acceleration on in Plex? https://www.dropbox.com/s/25zwkyvpbemc5hx/Test.mkv?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/akkngy10bn0ham8/SF%20Test.mkv?dl=0 Thanks in advance
  6. Didnt know if Plex Server issue, the Plex app, the iPad or the movies. Thanks a lot, will check on the driver.
  7. So let me understand this, im a noob, sorry for that. In Plex server settings I have these settings: For "Disable video stream transcoding" I have the box unchecked/disabled. For "Use hardware acceleration when available", if I have the box checked the videos is lagging, if unchecked the videos play fine but with high CPU to 97%. For "Use hardware-accelerated video encoding" I have the box checked/enabled. Shouldn't I be able to have both (last 2 above) enabled and it should only be used when required? I have the latest Plex version and have restarted it. When I run SSH I got 'Permission denied'. admin@SilverFang:/$ rm "/volume1/@appstore/Plex Media Server/lib/dri/iHD_drv_video.so" rm: remove write-protected regular file ‘/volume1/@appstore/Plex Media Server/lib/dri/iHD_drv_video.so’? Y rm: cannot remove ‘/volume1/@appstore/Plex Media Server/lib/dri/iHD_drv_video.so’: Permission denied When I try with sudo rm it says 'No such file or directory'. admin@SilverFang:/$ sudo rm "/volume1/@appstore/Plex Media Server/lib/dri/iHD_drv_video.so" Password: rm: cannot remove ‘/volume1/@appstore/Plex Media Server/lib/dri/iHD_drv_video.so’: No such file or directory -Disable video stream transcoding Disable transcoding of the video stream in transcoder operations. With this set, the transcoder may still transcode audio as well as remux video. -Use hardware acceleration when available Plex Media Server will attempt to use hardware-accelerated video codecs when encoding and decoding video. Hardware acceleration can make transcoding faster and allow more simultaneous video transcodes, but it can also reduce video quality and compatibility. -Use hardware-accelerated video encoding If hardware acceleration is enabled, this controls whether it's used for encoding, in addition to decoding.
  8. I thought I could watch movies with Plex on my iPad Mini 4 and not having the NAS run on 97% of the CPU, if I have hardware transcoding enabled.
  9. When running "cd /dev/dri" nothing happens, only a new line to enter command. But when enter "cd/dev/dri" with no space or "dev/dri" it says "-sh: cd/dev/dri: No such file or directory". Any ideas whats wrong? Maybe my motherboard not supporting hardware transcoding? Edit: The 2 videos that Plex app are struggling with, either by lagging when hardware transcoding is enabled or using 97% CPU, the 2 videos is working fine in Video Station with max 50% CPU.
  10. When I SSH with cat /usr/syno/etc/codec/activation.conf it shows: {"success":true,"activated_codec":["mpeg4part2_enc","h264_dec","h264_enc","mpeg4part2_dec","aac_dec","aac_enc","vc1_dec","vc1_enc","hevc_dec","ac3_dec"],"token":"26e42f20ea913ecb6237e691394c6d77"} Tried 4 different anime videos: 1.

  11. Hi, Bought Plex Lifetime Pass to be able to use hardware transcoding. When I enable hardware transcoding the video is barerly playing (lagging alot) but audio seems ok, and CPU is less than 3% on the NAS. When I disable hardware transcoding, video and audio plays fine, but CPU is around 97% on the NAS. Im playing on my iPad Mini 4 with the Plex app. Any idea whats wrong? Playing 1080p .mkv anime episodes thats not really big in file size, max 2GB but it doesnt matter if its 300MB. Xpenology (Synologys +918) Case: Chieftec Compact Series IX-01B Mini-ITX PSU: Chieftec AC Power Adapter CDP-085ITX 85W Motherboard: ASRock J4105-ITX - Intel Gemini Lake - Intel Onboard CPU socket - DDR4 RAM - Mini-ITX Memory: Corsair Vengeance SO-DIMM DDR4 2400MHz 2x4GB (CMSX8GX4M2A2400C16) Hard drive: Seagate Barracuda ST4000LM024 128MB 4TB USB stick: SanDisk USB 3.1 Ultra Fit 16GB Thanks in advance
  12. Got it to work by: Enabled SSH in DSM (NAS). Enabled Admin user in DSM (NAS). Downloaded PUTTY to Windows 10. Opened PUTTY and entered the IP address from the NAS, and press open to enter the NAS. Login as: admin Password: I set a new password when enabled admin user account in DSM. Paste with right click/Enter: cd /dev/dri Paste with right click/Enter: cat /usr/syno/etc/codec/activation.conf Results was below: {"success":true,"activated_codec":["mpeg4part2_enc","h264_dec","h264_enc","mpeg4part2_dec","aac_dec","aac_enc","vc1_dec","vc1_enc","hevc_dec","ac3_dec"],"token" :"26e42f20ea913ecb6237e691394c6d77"}
  13. Hi, I know DSM should not be updated, but what about File Station and other apps, is it ok to update? Thanks in advance
  14. Was trying to connect with my iPhone and iPad but couldnt see PPTP option. After some googling I read it was removed after IOS 10, and PPTP is not secure. Back to the Asus router and enabled OpenVPN instead, exported the config file, downloaded OpenVPN Connect app to iPhone and Honor 8, imported the config file and now its working fine Thanks so much for all the help, appreciate it alot, learning new things too
  15. Hi, I have set up VPN server in my Asus RT-AC-1900U router, PPTP with user name and password. And it shows me what VPN server address to be used when connecting it from phone etc. On my android phone Honor 8, I can get VPN to be connected. But how do I connect to DS Photo or DS Video, do I need to enable anything on DSM? Using the same IP address works when im home, but not when outside, do I need to use another IP when im outside? Thanks in advance
