Like many people, I thought it would be great to backup my videos to my Synology DS, and then have the DS upload them to youtube. Infact, the documentation claims Photostation 6 can do this from withing the DSM.
Sadly it turns out that you can only send them one at a time to Youtube from Photostation.
My workaround has been: Install Cloud Sync package on Synology.Set up my GDrive account in CloudSync to sync in one direction (upload from Synology only). On the DS, copy a batch of movies from their usual directory to the new sync directory for GDrive.Sit back and wait, as synology moves all those files to GDrive.The next day, go to Youtube, click upload. Select, 'upload from Photos'.Here I find all the movies that synology moved to gdrive.Youtube still has to process them, but the batch upload is done, and the processing doesn't take too long.When processing is done, I remove the movies from the sync directory on DS, which seems to automatically delete them on GDrive through s…
Thanks to Synology Disk Station Management (DSM) GUI it seems fairly reasonable, despite the learning curve.
My goals are:
to create a VPN that I can access from abroad and use to browse the internet.to create a mapped network drive on a remote laptop that will save backups to the server at home.
It all seems fairly straight forward.
DSM allows you to install 'packages', such as Proxy Server, VPN Server, Easy-Internet, etc...
The first thing I did was create a 'Quickconnect' Account. This allowed me to access the DSM remotely through a browser outside of my LAN.
I set up an L2TP/IPSec type VPN in VPN Server package, and after some fiddling with Android, was able to connect while on my WiFi. I figured I needed some DDNS service to log in remotely, but it didn't make sense to have to find a 3rd party service.
I became a custom ROM fan with my Galaxy S2 and CyanogenMod years ago...and loved it so much that I consulted CM forums when it came time to upgrade to a new phone. I wanted to get a model that was well supported by the CM community, and settled on and LG G3. I had no trouble running CM 12.1 on it for a year or two...granted there were a few non-functioning features (wireless charging, NFC) but that didn't bother me immensely.
At some point I started getting an error message...'Unfortunately Photos has stopped working', or something to that effect. This error began after transfering a photo to the phone from a portable HD through USB OTG. That error, and a second bug that caused my camera to hang, and delay about 3 seconds between pressing the photo buttton and actually capturing the image, made me seek out a new ROM.
I watched a great vid from Max Lee at LGG3root.com, found the crDroid distro for my D855, and combined it with Open GAPPS Pico package as suggested. As TWR…
