RE: how to install minimstreamer on qnap
Not in front of my PC currently so cannot give blow by blow instructions.

You need to load MinimWatch on a PC or Mac if you haven't done this already.

MinimStreamer is installed through the system tab, I think, in MinimWatch. If it's not system have a look at the other tabs and you will see one with components available for install and components installed.

MinimStreamer will show in available components to install

RE: how to install minimstreamer on qnap
Peter is generally correct, except that you need the Packages tab in the Properties dialog which you access through MinimWatch. The instructions for installing MinimStreamer are under 'Package Management' in the MinimServer User Guide. AFAIK, they are the same for all platforms. Which, if any, of these instructions are not working for you?

RE: how to install minimstreamer on qnap
i think I was expecting a new window/programme to be visible but obviously not.
Is there a way of just having the search/list by folder in the library view. I don't want artist/date/genre etc.

You can set the indexTags property to the special value 'none'.

RE: how to install minimstreamer on qnap
I installed minimserver on Qnap TS-459Pro and minimwatch on PC Windows 10. But tab Packages in minimwatch is empty. Why? How i can install minimstreamer for minimserver on my Qnap? I want to stream dsf transcoding to wav as in Asset UPnP 5.1.
And I can't set two different folders for music library on Qnap: Multimedia and Usb. Only one.

Are you selecting "Options > Properties (watch)" or "Properties" from the MinimWatch minim icon? To install packages on the QNAP, you need "Properties".

The Packages tab should never be empty. There should always be something under "Installed packages".

You can do this using MinimWatch. On the Server tab of the Properties window, click the + button to the right of the "contentDir" field.

What is the exact error message from MinimWatch?

This right-click menu with some selections greyed-out (and a grey colour for the MinimWatch system tray icon) means that MinimWatch couldn't find MinimServer.
