DS Audio on Amazon Fire TV ???

Postby Daveiw100 » Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:37 pm

How can I install DS Audio (or DS File) on Amazon Fire TV ?
Or is there another method to play audio content from Synology NAS on Amazon Fire TV ?

Plex is your answer. Install Plex on DS via Package Center.

Hi telos,
Thanks for your reply.
Unfortunately my Synology NAS is DS413J which does not support Plex

My DS213J has the same issue, BUT I manually loaded Plex from Plex site... Now I have v1.10.0.4523-648bc61d4 running. For the most part it does OK, however, it periodically shuts down and I have to manually restart (via Package Center). Oddly it has never stopped when in use, but it always seems to happen overnight. I'm not sure why. But for music, it is my only link to my TV/Roku.

Other possibilities...
Bubble UPnP server

or this?

Good luck.

Hi telos,
Thanks for the info. I will try to install Plex as suggested.
Meanwhile I can successfully play music from DS413J via my WDTV box
