@ iwings

 

Do you have a compiled version of VLC v2.21 for QNAP? I followed your link to the VLC page, but it was just for the sources.

 

Thanks for AirVideo HD for QNAP!

Yes. sort of...
It’s in /share/[DRIVE]/.qpkg/AirVideoServerHD/opt/bin
 
Don't expect much. It's there for transcoding purpose.

@ iwings How hard is the QPKG to update to the latest versions? Would it require a lot of work or be complicated?

Well, there's another thread I missed because of broken notifications :-/. As far as NAS support is concerned, the biggest issue right now for us is general lack of QuickSync support. Last time I checked devices with required hardware were still rather scarce. Supporting hardware acceleration on linux through va-api is rather big task and if we decide to go for it we must know that there's enough hardware support out there for the effort to be worth it.

I think they are becomming more common now.   I would vertainly value an official app. :)

 

Its working for me now apart from one thing which I am not sure is this app or just a bug in general.

 

iPhone 5 and 6 and 6+ are all playing.  But the iPad, when you play a file shows you the thumnail, then fades to a blurred version of that.   Then you see "Playback failed for <filename> Cannot Parse.

 

If anyone knows of a fix please let me know!

Love your product.  First purchase for my new Apple TV.

 

Add me to the list of people that would like a QNAP NAS version of Air Video HD.

Ok, I have been reading through the various forum posts to see how I can get Air Video HD to work on my QNAP NAS.

 

I have an iMac as my main computer, connected to a QNAP TS-453 Pro.

 

I have transferred all my videos over to the NAS and now want to have Air Video HD running on the NAS so I can access remotely with my iMac turned off.

On my NAS I have the following folders with video content created:

/Multimedia/Videos/Movies

/Multimedia/Videos/Movies - Kids

/Multimedia/Videos/TV Shows

 

From one of the Linux related posts I received instructions for and downloaded:

AirVideoServerHD-2.2.0

vlc-2.2.1

I extracted them to my iMac's downloads folder.

 

At this point, I am not sure what to do next.

 

Do I copy these files to the NAS?

     If so, where on the NAS do I copy the files.

Also, in one of the posts I saw instructions for editing the Server.properties file to add shared folders.

     Does anyone have a sample of this so I can see the proper syntax.

Anything else I need to know?

 

I know this is asking a lot but if anyone who knows what they are doing can put down detailed instructions for how to get this to run on a QNAP NAS, I would GREATLY appreciate it.

 

Thanks in advance.

I've copied my original post below.  I am trying to get Air Video HD to work on my QNAP NAS.

 

Are the Linux applications that I downloaded from this site also good for a QNAP NAS?  If so, how do I get it loaded and configured on the NAS (see my original post below).

 

If not, any word on a QNAP NAS version of Air Video HD?

 

Thanks!
