Hi,

With my iPhone i used to stream videos from my Synology Nas through filestation client. Now on Android it starts downloading instead of playing.
I don't want that.

Then i also want to open f.e. documents like pdfs from the web  with Dropbox to save them there directly but android doesn't give mute that option. Iphone did.

Please advise.

Assuming you have a higher DSM version installed, did you install Synology's own Media Server through the Package Center? That's one way to play (through upnp/dlna, use correct app, like built-in the Samsung, or general app like bubbleupnp).
Another is to browse the NAS as a Windows share with ES Explorer,  MX player will just play the file.

For files on the internet, you need to download it first before you can upload to Dropbox, there's no other way. You're seeing Apple's shortcomings as a wanted feature now.
