Show on appletv photos store on QNAP installed on diferent network

Post by PGaspar » Fri Apr 02, 2021 6:11 am

Hi all

Im planning to buy a Ts-451d2-4g to store photos.
The photos will be organized manually on folders on the QNAP.
However I would like to have access to the photos on a appletv that is NOT in the same network of QNAP.

Is this possible? Which configuration I must to do? It will be possible witb QMedia app on appletv or should I use another solution like Plex?

Thank you l for the support

you would need a site2site vpn (best done via 2 routers) ..what apps would work on appletv ..I dont know

plex would work even without that (tunneled via plex gateway servers)

Hi dolbyman

I have acess to the routers on the two places. I can setup the router whete the QNAP will be installed and also the router where the appletv ia installed.

I was thinking to install on appletv QMedia or Plex or any that could be necessary. I just would like to have sure if will work because buying the QNAP depend of that

Thank you

Ok thank you. Qmedia it will not be an option then right?
If I use plex then it will not be necessary to set any definition on the router right? Plex it will make the photos be available on every network isnt it?

I dont use these qnap apps...they are amateurish at best .. just use Plex

Plex will also work without portforwarding (Plex gateway) .. QNAP apps would need a VPN or portforwards (gets you hacked)
