Important notes​

  1. Your Synology NAS may not notify you of this DSM update because of the following reasons. If you want to update your DSM to this version now, please click hereto update it manually.
    • Your DSM is working fine without having to update. The system evaluates service statuses and system settings to determine whether it needs to update to this version.
  2. Depending on your Synology NAS model, this update will restart the device.
  3. AAC-encoded content can be decoded and natively played back by most end devices, such as smartphones, tablets, computers, and smart TVs. Server-side transcoding of AAC-encoded content has been a redundant and resource-consuming process that was removed in DSM 6 starting from this version.
  4. Advanced Media Extensions must be updated to version 1.0.2-0039 to be compatible with this update.
  5. Video Station must be updated to version 2.5.1-1668 to be compatible with this update.
  6. Audio Station must be updated to version 6.5.7-3383 to be compatible with this update.
  7. Media Server must be updated to version 1.8.5-2902 o be compatible with this update.

Compatibility & Installation​

  1. The following drives will be updated automatically to the latest firmware version to fix an unexpected issue that may occur during repair or other read/write operations: HAT5300-4T (firmware version 1401 and 1402), HAT5300-16T (firmware version 1401), HAT5310-8T (firmware version 1401), and HAS5300-16T (firmware version 1401).

What’s New​

  1. When users select Outlook as the system notification service provider, they will need to sign in with OAuth 2.0, which is a safer authentication method. Previously configured Outlook accounts will be migrated to "Custom SMTP server". We strongly recommend re-configuring the settings for authentication to ensure your Outlook account security.

Fixed Issues​

  1. Fixed an issue where files shared via SMB may not be discoverable through macOS Ventura's Spotlight search.
  2. Fixed an issue where files shared via AFP may not be discoverable through macOS Ventura's Spotlight search.
  3. Fixed an issue where a Synology NAS running DSM 7.2 may be unable to update its domain database after syncing data from a domain controller running DSM 6.2.4.
  4. Fixed a security vulnerability (Synology-SA-22:23).

Just updated to DSM 6.2.4-25556 update 7, but that was, it seems, a big mistake. I cannot play any videos anymore with the DS file app on my iPhone nor iPad. It was possible before up to 2160p, now nothing. I can find and load videos, but they won’t play, but freeze. What is going on? That is a serious downgrade! I have rebooted both the NAS and iPhone and iPad, but it won’t help. Also logging in is now erratic?it keeps coming back with inlog screens, but logs in after about three times. Totally weird. Can I downgrade to update 6, because it worked just fine before? Note: all packages are also up to date, had to repair 4 of them after updating to update 7 from update 6.
 
The software requirements in the update are not showing as available, my Apps are X.1 back , do I need to update the this code first ?

If you are asking if the packages need to be updated before updating DSM then the answer is no. But those listed packages need to be then updated to at least the indicated versions: if they are not automatically updated post-DSM update then Package Center should indicate there are updates available. If that still doesn't work then just go to the Synology Download Center web page and download the installer files and do a manual update.

Note that updating will mean upgrading the listed media packages such that they won't transcode AAC audio in files to something else. The justification being that most devices now support the native playing of AAC audio.

Understood and thanks
 
Please check this:
In DS FILE:
First un-check HTTPS From login page and see if you can play videos.
If you can— Turn HTTPS Back on, and go into DS FILE Settings (Gear)
And:
Un-check: Play streaming media over HTTP

And see if that fixes it?
I did all that (I was already familiar with it), but to no avail: still would not play anything. Here is the kicker, however. Where directly after the update (and subsequent update of dependent packages) nothing would play (browsing would work though), days after it plays almost everything again automagically. It is as if the NAS performed some sort of re-index of all files and after it completed most files became playable again. Although it seems fine, a lot of files that played easily before without glitches, up to most 2160p videos (except for those larger than approx 25GB, they sometimes would halt intermittently and glitch), now a lot more videos would be choppy, stop and go intermittently. But at least most of them play again. Apparently the Synology did something in the background, hogging resources and processor that made it impossible to let anything play through DS file on an external device like an (newer) iPad or (newer) iPhone. After it was ready it would be able to. I have no idea, however, what processes would have been responsible for this, nor was I made aware somehow that this could happen before this update (I did read the modification txt file before though). Anyone has a clue?
