No, it's simply "remote desktop-functionality" to a computer within the network itself..

Re: Which mediaserver to use?

I've tried Infuse awhile ago, however it doesn't transcode and that doesn't work when you're on 3G/4G only.. It requires signup at some other service aswell to keep track on which movies you've watched and not and that annoyed me aswell.

Re: Which mediaserver to use?

1) Sometimes the movies just won't play. It gives me a spinner and spins what seems forever. Stopping and starting the movie will sometime fix the problem. 2) Subtitles are sometimes not displayed even if they're visible for Plex. Restarting the movie might fix the problem. 3) Subtitles are sometime...

Which mediaserver to use?

I've used Plex on my Synology for ages but I'm fed up with it now for many reasons. I've investigated a few other servers but came up empty. Plex = Bugs. Latest UI-update and I've had it.. Not userfriendly for kids (which is a must, some kind of click-n-play UI..) Emby = Not UI-friendly for kids eit...

Re: DS918+ ,M2 cache and Virtual Machine Manager

I've added another 8GB RAM to my DS918+ (12GB total) so the cache advisor (wrongly) says "memory on your diskstation is full so it's not possible to create SSD caches". Will it be possible to add anyway if I got myself some NVMe's?

DS918+ ,M2 cache and Virtual Machine Manager

Anyone has checked the performance on a DS918+ equipped with M.2 cache using "Virtual Machine Manager"? If there's a noticable performance increase running a Windows7 VM for example?

Thanks

Re: Storing emojis in MariaDB10 (from PHP)

Found the answer: 1) Make sure the database/table/fields collation is "utf8mb4_general_ci". 2) Make sure you use "charset=utf8mb4;" in your databaseconnection (PDO in my case). In case of converting existing tables with data, make backups first. I was experiencing dataloss in some cases but a simple...

Storing emojis in MariaDB10 (from PHP)

I've googled alot but can't still get it to work with my website... I can't get emoji's to be stored properly in my MariaDB database. I've tried setting a few different charsets (UTF8...) for my tables but well, no. Either the emoji goes missing (and the rest of the string gets truncated) or just tu...

Re: VMM performance: Windows 7 vs Windows 10

I don't have any numbers, Windows 7 just feels snappier and a bit more responsive than Windows 10.

VMM performance: Windows 7 vs Windows 10

My experience is (on my DS718+, 8GB) that Windows 7 running on VMM is alot more responsive and quicker than Windows 10 with the exact same settings. Anyone else noticed this or is it just me? :)
I am a bit surprised by this to be honest..

Re: DS218+ & Video Station

Have you tried running Plex? My DS718+ can hardware-transcode h265 material with Plex (even if there's issues with subtitles every now and then).

Re: VM's are very slow

A hint would be to install your VM on a volume consisting of an SSD. Will improve things quite a bit!
