index external media folders

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'd like to know if it's possible to index a network folder so it can be used with DS audio and DS video in DSM 5.

I read several advices, but they seem to only work in older versions of DSM.

 

Any ideas?

if you open Control Panel and Media Indexing (the purple 'film reel' icon) then choose 'Indexed Folder' from the top tabs - you can add any shared folders to be indexed.

I was able to play musics and video from a USB drive under DSM 5.2 with a symbolic link

 

I am trying to figure out whether I can do the same with DSM 6.

Thank you, but doesn't work for SMB mounts. They don't show up. If I mount them via ssh, it doesn't work either.

USB should work but is not useful for me.
