DSM 7 VideoStation don't read video


Recommended Posts

I managed to install DSM7 with Tinicore on my test machine without any trouble.

 

Suprisingly, I struggle with Video Station which is not abble to read any video, even an old one with no usual codec trouble.

 

Have you got any Idea to fix it?

 

Note : I know that there is lot of other software more powerfull than Video Station but I really want to stick with DS Video.

 

Thanks.

I had the same problem, you have to activate them:

 

https://github.com/dmc31a42/synocodectool-patch

 

 

Run the following commands:

 

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dmc31a42/synocodectool-patch/master/patch.sh



chmod +x patch.sh



sudo ./patch.sh -p

 

 

 

Then run the following command:

cat /usr/syno/etc/codec/activation.conf

 

 

If it works you should get this message:

"success":true,"activated_codec":["hevc_dec","ac3_dec","h264_dec","h264_enc","aac_dec","aac_enc","mpeg4part2_dec","vc1_dec","vc1_enc"],"

Thanks for the tricks.

 

Unfortunately, my SN seems to be in a wrong format which lead to a fail for this script.

I'll have to see how to generate and change my SN. Surpisingly when I built the image with tinyCore I used the command ./rploader.sh serialgen DS918+, but it seems that something went wrong.

Yes DSM 7.0.1-42218 update 3...which explain everything since my SN is actually in the right format XXXXPDNXXXXXX.

 

I'll wait for the update of the scipt.

I updated the script:

 

https://github.com/Yanom1212/synocodectool-patch

 

Run the following commands:

## Delete the old version of the script.

rm ./patch.sh


## Install and run the new script.

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Yanom1212/synocodectool-patch/master/patch.sh



chmod +x patch.sh



sudo ./patch.sh -p

 

Then run the following command:

cat /usr/syno/etc/codec/activation.conf

 

 

If it works you should get this message:

"success":true,"activated_codec":["hevc_dec","ac3_dec","h264_dec","h264_enc","aac_dec","aac_enc","mpeg4part2_dec","vc1_dec","vc1_enc"],"

Question, is this what I need to get hw transcoding enabled using dsm7u3 on a rp build?

I installed rp and dsm7u3 on another branded nas box (baremetal) that has a pentium n3710 cpu, and this box originally did hw decoding / transcoding on its original software from its manufacturer.  Now after I got dsm7 on it, and installed video station (and its supporting files) and media dlna directly from package center inside dsm7, and when I try to play a video from video station it plays for 8-10 seconds and buffers, plays another 8-10 seconds and buffers..... afaik the i915 module installed as part of building the bootloader with rp, I installed video station directly from inside dsm7 and package center (not sure I was supposed to or use another method).   So would using your script enable the hw decoding of video station? or did I mess something up?

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

I can´t unlock ACC in Surveillance Station in DVA3221. I´m running DSM 7.1-42661 Update 1.

Surveillance Station is complaining because Advance Media Extensions is not installed.
