hi
i have some .avi films on my disk station that will not play through video station or plex ('the video format is not supported')
is it possible to stream it from the DS to VLC on my MAC and play it that way?

I don't see why not. As long as your MAC sees the NAS as a network drive, VLC should have no trouble navigating to it and playing the file. I do this all the time on my PC.
