    Info Free macOS media player: IINA

    I saw reference to IINA in an online article discussing media files and playbacking using free apps such as VLC [all normal so far] and IINA [what?? never heard of it]. So this is a Mac-only app based on mpv and written using Apple's Swift. If you're going to google it use 'mac iina' as 'iina'...

    Social Media Scheduler

    Question for the community. Has anyone found a social media post scheduler that you can self-host on your Synology? I am looking for something similar to HootSuite and Buffer. The main platform I am looking to schedule posts for is on my twitter account. Thanks in advance.

    Start DSM Media Re-Indexing from PHP App

    I use a home-brew PHP application to manage media files, including the movement of .mkv and .m4v video files within DSM's indexed 'video' folder. The PHP apps run on the same server as the media files, under Web Station / Apache. Unfortunately, files moved using PHP 'rename' do not trigger...
