How do you access the package manager from QNAP

RE: How do you access the package manager from QNAP
The contentDir field should be populated if the /share/Multimedia folder exists when you install MinimServer. If you have "Disable and hide the home/multimedia features" enabled on the QTS System Admininstration page (the default setting), the /share/Multimedia folder doesn't exist and contentDir won't be populated. Perhaps this is what happened. It doesn't depend on what model of QNAP NAS you are using.

To enable transcoding, you need to use MinimWatch to install MinimStreamer from the Packages tab of the Properties page. After doing this and relaunching MinimServer, you will see the stream.transcode and stream.converter fields on the System tab. The stream.converter field should have the value 'ffmpeg' and you should leave this value unchanged.

You are correct in thinking that your NAS is capable of doing transcoding itself and this is what MinimServer and MinimStreamer do when installed on a NAS.
