Stream from NAS in a browser

Postby Puggyx » Mon Jul 17, 2017 8:55 pm

Hi,

I made some search but didn"t find what i want.

I have a QNAP TS-231P. I manage to activate DNLA server, etc .... but is there a way to open a browser on a pc, connect to my NAS and watch a movie stored on it in the browser ? Like it does in youtube or when you put a video file in google drive, it displays the movie in a internal web reader

I thought video station can handle this but it asks me to open VLC .....

Thanks

did you try using plex ? they have an inbuilt video player :)

by the way are you doing this over your lan network?

did you consider just adding a shortcut to your NAS, then browse the share, open the video file then playback on your Desktop using MPC-HC ?

To create a shortcut on your windows 10 desktop, right click, create shortcut, then use this

Code: Select all

\\your lan ip here OR your NAS name

I thought Plex was to index my movie collection only ... I'm install it

I want to watch over the network, not only in my local one

The goal is to ** in browser without any application on pc like does in youtube or gdrive

yes it does that too, but it also has a video player as well :)

are you trying to connect to the QNAP over the internet from remote location, on your home network is what i meant :) Cause if it's the later, just using smb to browse to share then open playback using your own video player of choice will get the job done.

vlc is u streaming using link. Plex media player may work too if you login to the plex app browse from there and open a video perhaps.
