Supported formats for streaming playback and transcoding on ASUSTOR NAS

You can use LooksGood and AiVideos to directly stream videos if you have sufficient bandwidth and video codec support. If not, you can use transcoding to convert the video to a lower resolution or compatible format for playback.

Note:
1. For file extensions such as AVI, FLV, MOV, MP4, MKV, TS and other formats, if their codec is not in the supported list above, you will not be able to execute transcoding. For non-supported video codecs you can use Windows Firefox combined with the VLC Web Plugin v2.2.1 for video playback.
2. When using LooksGood on Windows Firefox, the VLC Web Plugin v2.2.1 must be installed. It can be downloaded from: http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/vlc/2.2.1/
3. Please select 720p or a lower transcoding resolution if you are using an iPhone 5 (A6 32-Bit) or older model.
4. Models with hardware transcoding support: AS30 / 31 / 32 / 50 / 51 / 61 / 62 / 70
