I have a Synology DS412+ with DLNA activated and a brand new WD TV Live device with wired network connections
I have installed and then powered the WD TV and it was able to connect by itself to my network, get an IP and found the NAS just by using it’s factory settings and now I am able to see movies by navigating through NAS video folders.
This is great but… the Media Library does not work. I read several posts here and there and come to a setting in my mind.
The idea is to have a dedicated synology account with R/W permissions on the NAS video folders and link it to my wired connected WD TV box. From there, if I am right, I will be able to add those NAS folders in the Media Library so
the metadata capture process can start and store the results in those NAS video folders as well.
Now comes the questions because I am a bit lost on how/where to do such settings :
-) What user / password the WD TV device is using by default to connect to the synology - DLNA ?
-) How to define a dedicated user account in my synology with DLNA feature activated ?
-) How can I enter this new dedicated synology user account into my WD TV network settings ?
-) How to proceed to add the synology video folder to the media libray ? just by going on it and push “Option” button on the remote ?
-) Is the DLNA feature on the synology impacted by this new setting ? Will I still be able to navigate through NAS video folders like now in DLNA and have also the Media Library dashboards and such ?
Sorry if some questions are stupid but I prefer to ask before to avoid nasty surprises
