The app works great! It's the perfect tool for enjoying your movie DB stored on a Synology disk station! I love the possibility to play or download movies on your device or to play it on a chromecast or Airplay device without any efforts! Also the app design, i.e., GUI/menu paths are smart and easily understandable. For me, there is nothing that could be improved.
It's good, but there could be improvements The video streaming gets sloppy every once in a while and keeps loading for no apparent reason. Also, having access to your own personal synology profile would be nice, sometimes the videos you have in your personal profile aren't exactly entertaining for everyone so it'd be nice to have that feature
Good but not perfect Updating my review since alot have changed. DS video have got a much better and nicer past 2 years. But the app for android is still not perfect. I have a few tv-shows with 10+ seasons and to watch the latest episode I have to hide manually every season. This I have do every time. The app version for Samsung TV is better with this becuse you just press a button to change season. A plus for that.
Waste of time It either tells u password is wrong or to cheack ur network. Both password I entered was right and nothing rong with network as tried on other devices . New update still crap blames internet and says check your conetion. It is fine everything else is fine on it. Deleted as waste of time.
Annoying When playing on Chromecast if the device goes to sleep the video freezes and you have to start from the beginning or find your spot. It does not work like the Netflix app or youtube where the video will keep playing even if the screen turns off and runs in background with a notification. This wastes battery. Please fix this issue.
Chromecast! OMG. it works. I have an older 210j and its streaming over Chromecast without hiccups. Super simple to use from my Samsung Note 4. mkv and m4v are all fine. DS Video has come a long way!
．DS video is now available on Android TV
