      How to sream video from Synology NAS to Sky Q box

      How do I stream video and audio from Synology NAS to Sky Q box?

      I can successfully stream media content (video, audio, photo) to other devices - Sony, LG, Panasonic TV's and Apple devices
      But cannot see an option on Sky Q box to see media players.

      Also, is it possible to install Synology applications on Sky Q box - DS Video, DS Audio etc

      You can’t is the simple answer. The Q Box will accept audio but not video and the only apps available are those that Sky force on to the box.

      If you want some form of central media hub it is best to base it on open source stuff not proprietary stuff that is owned by a company fundamentally opposed to giving you entertainment without wrapping you in region locking and screw you out of as much money as possible practices. Sky and more especially their hardware will always let you down for anything above basic use designed for lowest common denominator. It's not bad it's just sky as they've always been.

      You can install Plex on your synology nas box, then install the plex app on any device. I can do this with my synology nas drive and Samsung tv https://www.plex.tv/apps-devices/
