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.
This is a solution to a persistent problem on my SII (running CM10.1)...low storage space error. This handy app replaces the procedure in terminal emulator for clearing log files when low storage space warning appears. This error is due to an accumulation of around 1Gb of log files called "dumpstate_ril_RESET_BY_CP_SILENTRESET" or something like that.
This app can be set to automatically clear the logs directory on boot, among other nice features!
