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

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

Re: Please provide update for Synology

I did as you asked to send PM to them (zip & patters). I didn't wanted to disturb them in the beginning and was waiting any replay here in forum. Unfortunately no replay, PM sent in different time week or more ago. And also i asked in Synology download page about it but seems that page is totally dead. Last post there like from August and my post awaiting for moderation. I have feeling that i am not the only one who post there awaiting moderation. :mrgreen:
If honestly, my opinion that serviio for synology is discontinued. We will see that probably in future was my feeling correct or not.

Re: Please provide update for Synology

I too wondered if support for Synology has been discontinued. I get the message "A new version of Serviio (1.10.1) is available" .

Of course there could be very good reasons why the guys haven't ported it across yet, but would be nice to know if there will be any updates in the future.

Re: Please provide update for Synology

+1

We really need the NAS version to be treated like the mainstream releases rather than patters having to update it as a hobby when he has the time.
& please don't take that up wrong patters, I think this is a great bit of work you have done. I just think the same time and effort should be put into the synology build as all the other builds.

I purchased the pro license under the assumption that this was the case. If it comes down to time and life getting in the way, then maybe this branch could be moved to github or similar where other users can contribute and help out taking some of the burden off patters. I for one (and I am sure there are many like me) would be willing to test and help build if the current knowledge of the project was shared.

Again patters, what you have done has been great and is much appreciated, serviio & synology work great together. I just think that the synology build has to be treated as a core build of the software from now on.

Re: Please provide update for Synology

Good Day.

I see the new version 2.0, but no option for Synology.

Will there be a Synology version 2.0?
