Has anyone figured out how to install air video on xpenology

Recommended Posts

Air Video can stream videos in almost any format to your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. You don't need to copy your videos to the device just to watch them. It works extremely well.

I want to see it it will work on the xpenology build.

 

I'm not even sure it's possible. I have used it for several years now on my WHSv1 and have recently built a nice new nas. I'm going to miss being able to stream mkvs to my ipad/iPhone.

 

I did some research and found someone has releases Jar files of the server but after that I'm lost as to what to do with them. (Or if it would work at all)

 

Here is a link to the jar files if anyone wants to try it out? Or just tell me flat out it won't work so I can try to find something else

The iOS App Store reviews. I'll test it out. I assume it works over the Internet too?

It's a free app you have nothing to loose by trying it, if you don't like it use something else like plex. Yes it will work over the internet assuming you have made the necessary changes in DSM & opened the relevant firewall ports. You will probably want to use a DNS service too unless you have a static IP.

so apparently the most recent version of Video station has no DTS support which is like 99% of my movies. Going to look at Plex now. I really wish air video worked (its just what i used before)
