Did anyone reverse engineer Photo Station ?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I really like the DS Photo app that automatically synchronizes my photos on my phone to my old synology NAS. I've build a new NAS that supports more than one disk since my Synology NAS only supports one disk.... Instead of installing DSM on my new NAS, I was wondering if anybody has tried to reverse engineer the Photo Station package so that the DS Photo APP can synchronize against a non DSM-running server ?

 

I tried a year ago using wireshark, but it turned out to be a quite cumbersome and it wasn't easy to figure out how it knows which photos has already been synchronized.

If anyone is interested, here is my code: https://github.com/Exchizz/SynologyPhotoServer

 

It's not working completely, but some things are working such as logging in and as far as I remember upload photos.

 

Has anyone ever done something like it that's working or does anyone know how the APP/package knows which photos has already been upload ?

 

Thanks in advance :>

Just use one of thousands of apps that support photo sync through webdav, ftp, sftp, etc.

Plex?

 

Plex is nice for streaming movies, but how does this relate to my question :> ?

Plex has a photo sync feature which pretty much "just works". You need to purchase the client (5$ one time) or pay for the subscription, though, to use it.
