Please provide update for Synology

I notice you have updated all the products historically supported, except Synology.

I use a DS413J. Very happy with this NAS (for what I use of it). Mainly use it to store videos and my itunes library.
I have tried the built in server for the video. Mixed results with some features more appealing than Serviio, others are much better on Serviio. Frankly would like to find a way to create upper level types to separate family and commercial videos but that seems to be the main failure of the Serviio product (or lack of documentation to do so)

Recently I see you have released the update for ALL the other historically supported platforms but you seem to be abandoning synology.

If it is because of a lack of bandwidth and beta testers, here is one. A senior developer also (retired) who used to be a release engineer also.

Please do NOT forsake me.
thanks
Earl

Re: Please provide update for Synology

All of the NAS implementations are maintained by users rather than by the developer of Serviio (@zip). There are a number of reasons for this. In the case of the Synology NAS @patters keeps them up to date - as patters is doing this voluntarily, releases can a little while longer than the mainstream for operating systems supported natively by zip.

ps. I'm sure patters would welcome support if you are a developer with time.... reach out perhaps.

would like to find a way to create upper level types to separate family and commercial videos
What I do is:

  • Create separate shares for my commercial releases (in my case D:\Video\Movies and D:\Video\TV Shows) and home videos (in my case D:\Video Camera);
  • For the commercial shares - enable "Retrieve descriptive metadata" for the shared folder. These titles will appear under the Movies and Series categories in Serviio;
  • For the home movies - disable "Retrieve descriptive metadata" for the shared folder. These titles will only appear in the Folders and Titles categories in Serviio. I'd prefer that they didn't appear in Titles but I haven't worked that one out yet.
I recognise it would be better to have a dedicated category, but until/if that is developed the above has worked well for me.

Re: Please provide update for Synology

You might send a PM to Patters. He's the one that maintains the Synology build. There might be hardware or OS reasons he hasn't been able to update it yet. Or, life might have gotten in the way... :D
