Is the current xpenology image able to Transcode?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, i was just wondering if the xpenology software (current version) is able to transcode to my I-devices like iPad, iPhone and Macbook...compared to an original synology server?

 

I just saw this on the Synology website about Transcoding https://www.synology.com/en-us/knowledgebase/faq/577 ...and i saw that the DS3615xs machine (which i have the current xpenology bootimage for) is stated as an Group 1 - Type 2 machine, which will not transcode either MKV, MP4, MOV, M4V files..nor either transcode to full 1080P, but "only" 720P..but the Type 1 machines will do it all almost?? Can someone more experienced explain me actually why?

Use Plex, and it will transcode just fine. I personally don't care for the built in media apps.
