Connecting to NAS using PlayerXtreme (iPhone app)

Post by cattrall » Mon Jul 25, 2022 5:37 pm

I have a TS-251+. I can access it remotely using my iPhone or iPad with no problems using the Qnap apps (Qfile, Qvideo, etc...) But I would like to play my videos through, for example, PlayerXtreme. (I'm sure there are many other apps that would be similar...)

In PlayerXtreme, under 'Add Files' --> 'From PC/NAS' ... I can add a NAS. But I have not found a way to connect to my NAS - no matter what I enter the connection fails. Can someone please advise what I should enter for the following settings:
Protocol (options are SMB, FTP, SFTP, FTPS, WebDAV)
Address (I've tried myQnapcloud web address, etc, to no avail...)
Domain (or do I just leave this blank?)
Username (I presume my 'admin' username)
Password (I presume my 'admin' password)

Any and all help much apprecaited,

Geoff

Hope that access is only via VPN..do NOT expose your NAS directly to WAN (look at all the people paying bitcoin for ransomwared NAS)
