For home medial lovers, there are numerous programs for viewing multimedia such as Video Station. This application provides access to Movies, TV Shows, Home Video and TV Recordings stored on the Synology DS713+. If the files are properly titled Video Station will pull down the metadata providing movie posters and descriptions of the associated movie or TV show. Video Station works with AirPlay and DLNA streaming. If you had a USB digital television tuner you can even stream and record live TV shows.
