    Default Mezzmo for Synology DSM

    I suggest to provide a Synology DSM version of Mezzmo.



    The business case for Conceiva should be quite compelling. There are many Synology users out there that have replaced a noisy and maintenance-intensive Windows PC as their media server with a Synology Diskstation running under Synology DSM - a Linux derivate.

    The native Synology DLNA server has only very basic functionality.

    I am running a Synology Diskstation since 4 years and have just migrated to a newer model with a quadcore Intel processor fast enough even for realtime transcoding. The only thing I am seriously missing is the comfort of Mezzmo on this NAS device.

    Synology Diskstation need less than a tenth of maintenance than a Windows PC, are extremely low noise and cool. Dependent on the setup all data are Raid 1,5,10 protected.

    Best regards
    Bernhard

    Hi Paul!

    Add me to the suggestion list also--I have a Synology box running myself, with 8TB storage, and I really miss having a good, competent DLNA server. I've tried them all, and nothing was as good as when I ran Mezzmo on my PC. For now, Serviio is adequate but hardly ideal.

    Synology's system is pretty hard to beat, as it has a nice interface making it easy for consumers to use (while not dumbing things down), yet it also lets us power users SSH into the box and customize things our own way.

    I'm even willing to beta test, if it gets to that point. I think my Mezzmo license may still be valid.

    Yes a native Synology app would be welcome. I have been using a DS1511+ with 5 3TB drives in raid5 for a long time. Recently I added a DS1815+ with 4 6TB drives. I have media split between the two. I would not be interested in ffmpeg on the box. An Atom processor is nowhere near powerful enough for real time transcoding. I do not even do that with my FX9590. All of my media is transcoded and stored in my devices native format. That is possible because I have standardized the players.
