Play videos from Synology nas

Hi,

I would like to play videos on mi Iphone 4. Videos are located on a Synology nas, I can see them with ds file, an app for Iphone, but when I try to open, it does not give me the option to view, only download. I don t want them to download or run a conversion on them, I would like to stream them to my Iphone. Note: there is a streaming function on the Synology but i m not sure id I need it?

Thanks,
J.

I dont have definate answers with how NAS works but ds files aren't they a store file? from Apple Mac?
.DS_Store
.DS_Store (Desktop Services Store) is a hidden file created by Apple Inc.'s Mac OS X operating system to store custom attributes of a folder such as the position of icons or the choice of a background image

Try using vlcstreamer from the AppStore.  There's a free version which is ad supported. You'll need to run the streamer app on a PC that can see the NAS though.

Not with the VLC suggestion, that needs a Bonjour service running on the host.
