Synology - DS Video App

Recommended Posts

Yes we need a DS Video app, or some app that can connect to the Synology Video Station / Synology Media Server with nice GUI.


I am really dissapointed by LG Webos and its DLNA player, SmartShare and the whole user experience. SmartShare is really the worst piece of Smart TV software that I have ever seen.


Unfortunetly I already have an LG TV, but need to buy a new TV for my Living Room, and wont be buying LG for sure because of the crappy apps on its Content Store.


I will probably buy a Samsung, because it has much better apps and has support for DS Video.

I spent a lot of money on my 55eg920v but I feel that LG has just abandoned me now that webos 3 is out. 

I will not buy LG again. 

Where is the itv hub? 

I use smartshare with my synology but the app is hardly feature rich and really is as basic as it could be and is a joke in 2017

Does LG really think that I should replace a TV that cost nearly £3k

Yes, life is good, but no thanks to LG

I have 3 LG TVs due to the supperior IPS panel technology but app store is far from recommended. I'm waiting for the synology  video app "DS Video" for a couple of years, I see a lot of people asking for this app and no feedback about a future release.

I'm re-thinking about buying LG tv in the future. LG, it's in your best interest to listen to LG TV owners app suggestions. 

Samsung have this app for ages.

This Message is for LG Developers,

 Hi Folk, pls. talk to Synology to develop DS Video for WebOS on LG TV's. I've three TV's and two LG Monitors at home, but I'll change to Samsung if nothing happens very soon.

^^^  I always use the DS Video app on my phone and just cast to the TV.  Why would having the app on the TV make it any better?  I find the response to apps on the phone and casting much quicker than comparable apps on my LG TV.

      How do I raise a feature request for WebOS?
      I got a replacement for my 43UJ752T Nanocell with 55SM8100 Nanocell however I noticed that on WebOS 4.7 I am no longer able to adjust the screen like I was able to do on my old TV for applications like Youtube, Netflix, Amazon Prime etc, the aspect stays at 'Original'
      With the option to adjust the aspect ratio I was able to get rid of black borders for some movies and avoid seeing the bleed from Edge LEDs at the bottom. Now with that option gone I need to keep seeing the white patches throughout the movie, Annoying!

      The built-in webOS Photo & Video app is great: easy to use interface, excellent codec support, good compatibility with other devices on my home network.
      But it is missing one key feature...
      Please add support for browsing chapters in *.mp4 (and other file types) as per the following:
      As a user, I can see a list of chapters in the media file I am currently playing (if there are any) As a user, I can jump to any chapter in the media file I am currently playing As a user, I can easily jump to the next or previous chapter in the media file I am currently playing As a user, the list of chapters includes both chapter number and chapter name (if a chapter name is given in the media file I am currently playing) As a user, I can see which chapter is currently playing both in terms of chapter X of Y and its name As a user, I can see how long (minutes & seconds) each chapter is As a user, I can see how long and how many minutes are remaining in the current chapter As a user, I can briefly see the chapter number/title and duration when I jump to the next or previous chapter
