Video Station losing features

Post by Rhody » Fri Apr 05, 2019 10:55 pm

I have a TS-251A with firmware 4.3.6.0895. Video Station version is 5.3.7.

I have HDHomeRunDVR running and recording TV shows from a HDHomeRun quatro tuner. I used to use Video Station in the Chrome browser to watch the shows remotely. I had Video Station configured to launch VLC media player to stream the TV shows.

After the last update (4.3.6.0895 is dated 2019/03/28), Video Station does not give me an option to launch VLC media player. Rather, it opens its own media player (Media Viewer). However, the Video Station media player cannot play my recordings due to an unsupported audio format.

My question: Is there a way to configure the updated Video Station to launch VLC media player rather than the inadequate Video Station media player? Is there any way to point VLC media player to the video file on my NAS?

I'm surprised we're the only 2 people with this problem

Submit a helpdesk ticket to QNAP regarding the loss of this feature as they do not actively monitor this forum.
