Serviio Web Console 1.2a – 001 Synology package

10.01.2012, Allgemein, Misc, by .

First of all: I can’t give real support for this just because I just don’t have the time. I will try to update it as fast as I can, but it won’t be as quick as the Subsonic or ownCloud package.

So what is it all about?

Serviio is a pretty neat dlna streaming server written by Petr Nejedly (Zip). In February 2011 patters got it running on Synology Disk Stations (his packages taught me how to build my own). At first he didn’t include an interface in his package which wasn’t really a problem because there is a full access remote console available. Then he integrated the PHP web console whis is basically just a bunch of files. Then he began to include the full java-based console and even got it working in one jvm with the server application. Sadly but comprehensible he excluded the console from his packages since version 1.0 because it is just to much work to do for getting the same results you can have by installing the remote console.

But as I am operating my DS from a multitude of devices a build-in console is the simplest solution for me. So I was looking for an easy way to get a console running on my DS and found Marks (mpemberton5s) PHP Web Ui at the serviio Forum, ask him for a permission to puplish it and here it is. 😉

Sadly I can’t get it to work in an iframe window inside DSM (the icon is clickable but nothing happens. Bug?). Now it opens a new Tab, looks a bit stretched on my 16:9 screen, but works fine.

How do I use this?

First of all you have to install patters serviio package carefully and follow the first five steps in instructions. You don’t have to install serviio on your local computer, thats what this package is for.

To install the console package add to your 3rd party sources like the one you added from patters to install serviio.

After installing serviio and this serviio console read patters notes carefully!

Now you are good to go.

    This looks like exactly what I need! Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be any content at

        It looks like it just took some time to show up in the packages list after I added your source URL. When I came home tonight it was showing up, but it didn’t this morning for some reason.

        Thanks–this is a much better solution than installing the console on another machine!

  3. Awesome job, I much prefer having the console availible from within the Diskstation/web interface. Seems to work for me with the exception that I cannot add a new directory to scan. It seems to miss the last charater of the dir name, adding an extra space also does not work.

    eg /volume1/TVHeadend -> /volume1/TVHeaden

    I am using Firefox.

    Your notes say to go to to finish the installation. But when I place that link into a browser I get a „not found“ error page from Synology. I also tried but had the same result.

    Is there something I have to enable to be able to access?

    Thanks in advance for your help and hard work.

    Perfect solution! But you forgot the tab for images in Metadata. All working fine, but can’t enable making thumbnails for images and photos, because there’s no „Picture“ tab… Can you fix this little problem?

  8. Hi to every one, it’s genuinely a pleasant for me to go to see this web page, it contains important Information.
