    Playing HEVC videos via Syno Photo?

    How is this still an issue? Just from rough checking, it appears that 90% of my videos are of the HEVC variety whether they are .mov or .mp4. How did Syno release a photo/video management app that can't play a very common video codec? Are there any solutions? I have the Advance Media module...

    How can I rename or remap the "Shared Spaces" folder share? By default it is named "photo" which confuses family members.

    I understand that the personal photo folder is /home/Photos and the shared spaces folder is /photo. Why is it named /photo? Should it be named /SharedPhotos? Or at the very least be plural since it's the shared equivalent of the /Photos folder within each user's home share? Ideally I would...
