Synology Moments and viewing mp4 in timeline view in Shared Photo Library?

Edit 31May21 : Synology support recognise this as a bug. Their response is that unless a video has the following XMP tag then Moments will also look to the modification date not the creation date when ordering them after a copy event all videos : XMP.video.Date.UTC (In UTC %Year:%Month:%Date:%Time format) quicktime videos : Xmp.xmp.com.apple.quicktime.creationdate So that leads to 2 questions 1) where can I find this Tag? Synology supprt tells me that some of my videos have it, and some don't, but can't explain to me where to find it 2) if I find the Tag, can I edit it? Can I bulk edit at the same time? Can anyone recreate my bug : In copying .mp4 files from Moments User Photo Library to the Shared Photo Library, the Creation Date is overwritten by the modification date of the copy, and the Shared timeline view orders .mp4s then by the date of copy. This does not appear to be the case for .jpg, .mov, .heic etc. So - if today I copy say a month's worth of files from my User Library into Shared, and look at the Shared Timeline view, everything looks OK apart from all the .mp4, which all are ordered into today, and not by creation date. If anyone can recreate it, are there any fiendish workarounds? I attach screenshots of a .jpg and .mp4 each in my User Library, and then the timeline view and metadata as seen in the Shared Library Annoyingly, it is not consistent - an .mp4 from 2 years ago, when copied to the Shared, remains with the correct Creation Date and is ordered correctly in the Shared Photo Library Even more annoyingly, a jpg from 2 years ago, when copied to the Shared, had its creation date modified and appeared in the Shared as today aaaarggghhh oh fyi the use case : having a shared photo library of family stuff that both me and my partner can selectively add to, rather than having a shared album that only either of us can add to

Migrate from (DSM7) DS218+ to new DS920+?

Could you please advise on how to move from my existing DS218+ (2 x 4TB) to a brand new DS920+? The 218+ is running DSM 7, which I assume the 920+ won't be. Is it possible to upgrade the DS920+ to DSM 7 and then swap the drives from the DS218+ into slots 1&2? I assume that the DS920+ needs at least one blank drive in bay 1 to allow the DSM 7 update. Once I do that, can I eject it and use it elsewhere instead? I have ordered 2 x 2TB drives for the DS218+, as we plan to keep it as a remote backup for the new DS920+.

Best NAS for client/vm automated backup?

Hi there, I'am looking for a new nas for my SMB office (10-15 client pc, 2 phisical servers and 2 virtual machine). I'am a QNAP nas adopter with a first really satifatory experience with a TS-259 Pro (still working) and another one really worsth with a TS-453A who completly dead after less than 2 years of work. Now I'am looking for a better stable and upgradable solution for file sharing and centralized backup and I'am interested in Synology DS1621+ or QNAP TS-673A-8G. I like to try the newer ZFS filesystem proposed from QNAP but the Synology Active Backup for Business suite seems to offer more complete backup solution. So my questions: - There is a integrated baremetal backup solution for windows clients also for QNAP nas? Currently I'am using the QNAP NetBak Replicator for backup file folders from clients but the Synology suite seems to be most complete. - The Synology Active Backup for Business could backup also the free Esxi Hypervisor VM or only vSphere solution? - The ZFS filesystem offers some real advantages in the client/server backup procedures? Thank you for your time! Regards

Best NAS for iPhone camera backup?

I am about to by my first NAS. But I can not find good information about some details that are on high priority to me. I want: * Instant upload of iPhone photos and the possability to have them deleted automaticly from iphone after uploaded. * iPhone Live Photos support (on auto uploaded photos and browsing photos) * to be able to use my iPhone to browse my photo collection stored in my NAS. I plan to have nothing locally stored in my phone so there will be plenty of space for a big cache files for thumbnails. I am comfortable with configuring systems but can not really say what NAS brand that I want. But if one of them are better on my wishes above - that will be what I go for.

TS-109 Pro not visible?

Bought a second hand TS-109 Pro, downloaded QFinder Pro and the latest firmware 3.3.3. All installed correctly but cannot see it on the network or map a drive in windows 10 When I click Details in QFinder Pro, it comes up with a log in screen where I put default username and password, the it does a little search for a few seconds and closes down??? When I click on Network Drives, there is nothing to select in the Select IP Address dropdown box??? I know it's an old system but I wanted to try it out to share music and videos on my network. Thanks in advance

QNAP HBS versioning/snapshots only to external backup?

I have a Backup job set on a daily schedule in HBS 3 from a QNAP to an attached external USB Drive. When I did a test Restore job I only see a single backup version available from the most recent backup of the day before. How do I save these daily scheduled backups as versioned backups more akin to Time Machine? I've watched some of your (very helpful) videos about snapshots but as far as I understand it, the snapshot lives on the main source QNAP. I was hoping to get the versioning only on the external USB backup. Are you forced to turn on snapshots on the main QNAP first and then the HBS scheduled backup job would also grab the snapshot data each day? Essentially I’m asking what’s the best way to replicate w/ HBS (or a different QNAP app) how Time Machine can backup daily versions to an external drive only. Thanks!

Synology Moments won't play videos?

This video (https://youtu.be/Lk0N0M5MLLc?t=340) shows that Synology Moments is supposed to play videos right in the app. But on both my Pixel 3 and my wife's S10e, when tapping on a video to play, we get prompted with a "select which app to play this video in". We're both connected to the same server, so I'm wondering if there's a server-side setting that I need to change. I can't imagine that Synology would remove that functionality if at one point it did play videos, as shown in the video linked above. Thanks for the help.

To sync or symlink, that is the question...?

Hi everyone, here’s the photo setup I’m trying to accomplish in Moments: 2 separate personal accounts that store individual photos from before 2013 & a family account where all photos/videos since ‘13 are stored. I enabled the shared library, so I can be logged into my personal account and see my photos as well as our family shared photos. Both my wife and I are backing our iPhones up to the family account (Home>Family>Drive>Moments). The issue is that I have to do a manual copy from the Family account to the /Photos folder for the pics and videos to show up in the shared library. Taking all this into consideration, I’m wondering the best way to sync the Family Moments folder with the /Photo folder. Is it better to symlink the Family moments folder to the /Photo folder or create a script that runs nightly to copy its contents to /Photo? Ideally I would like to prevent duplicate copies (same photos in the Family Moments folder and the /Photo folder). Help please :D
