We need DS Video app for Sinology NAS. samsung already has it.  

Hi, We need this app for our tv!  @LG TEAM When wil be this app available? Please Thanks very much.

It's really a shame that LG TV can't have a DS Video app. I think that my LG 55c6v is almost perfect in my home chain, but it miss DS Video app to be really perfect.

^^^  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.

Other family members could access it, if your phone died you could still access it, if your phone breaks you can still access it, guests could access it, kids could put on their own movies, everyone can decide what to watch together looking through the choices on the screen, if you lose your phone you can still access it, a long way down the line if the phone app no longer functions or something happens to android/apple it would nice for the tv to be somewhat self sufficient

I'd love this app available on LG and file types like m4a songs should really be able to be played as it's an open source format so free to use . I hear samsung have both these on their tv already...

Yes, Plex is an alternative, but it is not free, DS Video is!

Plex Media Server, players for desktops and streaming devices all free.

What do cost money are Plex Pass and mobile apps.  Plex Pass is not essential for day to day use, but the ability to sync content to mobile devices makes it well worth the money in my opinion.  If you are on the Plex mailing list they occasionally run promotions, my lifetime membership cost considerably me $74.99 instead of $119.99.  When it comes to the mobile apps, well they are not not exactly expensive.  

Of course you have to have a Synology device that is supported by Plex so it is not the be all and end all.

A article on Plex Pass will tell you whether or not you need it:

Today I have an old sony, with 5V line issues (so no USB, no WI FI, etc...).

I am using DS Video from Android and IOS, streaming to a chrome cast, the same way I am watching YouTube or Netflix today.

I intend to buy a new TV and for now the main option is OLED55C8P, a very expensive model in Brazil.

My Sony with chromecast goes to my son's room and I would like to use my wide content in DS918+ directely to my new (probably LG) TV, with DS Video, that in my personal opinion is better than Plex.

It wolud be great if LG and Synology work togheter to achieve this.

      Oh, Best Buy, you didn't tell us you had a brand new TouchPad in stock. We left our number and everything. Did we do something wrong? Why don't you ever call anymore?
      In all seriousness, we're not surprised that the Best Buy in Santee, California, found a brand-new 32GB to sell. How it got on their shelves isn't likely to be a harrowing tale of dragons and sword fights and multitasking cards. Like tipster nfrisbie1, we're more interested in how this Best Buy location thinks they can get away with asking full list price - $599.99 - for that sells for close to a third of that on eBay, which is itself notably higher than the that . You so silly.

      It was early December. The whirlwind year that was 2011 was coming to a close and the future of webOS was still a great unknown. But one developer stood up and proclaimed, "My name is Zhephree, and I shall build an app to catalog my media!" And so it was done.
      Fast-forward to today and Geoff Gauchet's Wooden Rows app is now available for TouchPad owners. The app leverage's Amazon's vast database of books, CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, and video games to allow the user to build a searchable library of their own personal physical collection. With that library put together you can then even keep track of when you've loaned things out to friends. Wooden Rows is not a content portal - you can't watch your movies, read your books, or listen to your music through it, nor will you likely ever be able to - it's a personal inventory tracker. If you've got a large media library, we can think of much worse ways to spend $3.99.
      If you're in the mood to spend that amount twice, Zhephree has also cut their price of their other flagship app by a dollar, bringing the social network aggregator incredible! (properly lowercase and exclaimed, for the record) down to $3.99 as well. The move is a permanent price cut, and should be an easier pill to swallow for users looking to unite their Facebook, Flickr, foursquare, and Twitter existences in one cohesive stream.
