View Full Version : BMM on NAS
August 9th, 2011, 11:17 AM
Is it not possible to install BMM on a Qnap NAS so I dont need to have a computer on to stream local content to my iPad?

Requires BMM to be installed on W7 (Vista should work) or OS X. But that's only for local media to your iPad (same as any other transcoding app for iOS). Watch Later and Featured will work without BMM.

So the answer is no I need to have the computer on? If that's the case it's useless to me. :(

Right, the answer is it won't work on a NAS unless it's running W7 or OS X. This is the same as any other video transcoding software for iOS platforms that I'm aware of (Orb, AirVideo, etc).
But again, that's only needed for playing local videos on the iPad, not for online videos that are in the Friends or Watch Later sections of the app.

It wouldn't be much use on your NAS anyway unless all your media is in a format native to the iPad.
The CPU's in most NAS are very low power chips (Intel Atom is considered high end) and don't have the processing power to handle transcoding video.

I run Air Video on my Acer H340 Easystore with WHS V1 SP3. I also have a H340 with WHS 2011 that runs Air Video. on both NAS it is set as a service and works flawlessly for over a year now.
I was able to install the BMM on the WHS V1 as a service and it runs, but as per my own post it stutters and is un-watchable. funny how that is the case when Air Video can playback without any issues

See my response to your original post (no need to post about the same thing twice in two different threads ;) )
