Re: Streaming videos from NAS
I just bought the velo( my first media streamer actually). All my videos are stored on my NAS (synology). I enable media server and even itunes server on it. But someone velo still does not see my NAS when it scanned the network.
Any advice would be much appreciated. thanks thanks
the included media server on your nas and itunes make use of DLNA/UPnP. VEOLO out of the box does not support this as it also not mentioned in our specifications.
For the VEOLO to be able to 'see' your NAS you will need to activate SAMBA (windows file sharing) Protocol on your NAS.
An alternative to SAMBA would be to use NFS which is faster and more stable as well. Please check your NAS manual and/or config on how to activate this.
If you want to use UPnP there is of course apps for that which allow you to discover your media server.
One of those is for example 'arkmc' which only works wirelessly though. I'll try to find some more and let you know.
