Seem unable to use MinimStreamer with Syno Community’s version of FFmpeg
Hi, hope you can help again. I’ve just upgraded the ffmpeg capabilities on my Synology NAS by installing Syno Community’s latest version of ffmpeg.

No issues with the installation process, with Bubble UPNP Server picking up the change quickly and without any problems. However, despite ffmpeg continuing, I think to, be situated in ‘/usr/local/ffmpeg/bin/’ the web console for MinimServer now informs “MinimStreamer: converter not installed” and MinimWatch is coloured red. I use MinimStreamer as a converter a lot how do I get it working again?

I’m using MinimServer 2 (update 201) and MinimStreamer 2.0.9 with a full licence.

What do you have in the stream.converter property?

Stream.converter is set as "/usr/local/ffmpeg/bin/ffmpeg". I'm a bit perplexed, I've just restarted MinimServer and everything now seems to be working again. Thanks though for promptly getting back to me Simon..

After changing this property setting (or perhaps after replacing the ffmpeg file), a restart is needed to make MinimStreamer use the new value. I'm glad to hear it is working now.

On my Synology, the path to community ffmpeg is

/var/packages/ffmpeg/target/bin/ffmpeg

Thanks. I can't explain why but on my NAS that folder seems to have the same content as /usr/local/ffmpeg/bin/ffmpeg

The community package has probably created a symbolic link.

On my Synology (DSM7) I don't have /usr/local/ffmpeg/bin/ffmpeg

However
/var/packages/ffmpeg/target
is a symbolic link to
/volume1/@appstore/ffmpeg
