Okay, so the short answer is-

Install Docker
Search for /ijabz/songkongdocker image
Download and Launch image in a Container
Ensure share network with NAS and mount Music folder

but this is a work in progress.

I just have this working on a Synology 218+ , by the end of next week I should have fixed a couple of glitches and have proper install instructions. This method should then work for any NAS that supports Docker and that should include your particular QNAP NAS. But please note Docker is currently only available for Intel based NAS so this would not work for NAS's that use PowerPC or Arm based chips such as many of the lower cost Synology NAS machines.

We will create a native package instead for such machines unless there is chance of ARM based Docker becoming available for Synology soon, will have to research the situation regarding QNAP.

Hi, so its not officially released yet but I can now confirm we have SongKong working very nicely on a Synology 218+ and performing just as speedily as on my PC. It should work on any Intel based Synology Disk Station and instructions are at http://www.jthink.net/songkong/install_docker_synology.jsp

It should work for any Qnap that has Container Station (this includes some ARM processor models). So please take a look at https://www.qnap.com/en-uk/how-to/tutorial/article/how-to-use-container-station/ and if you use this in conjunction with my Synology instructions you should be able to get it working.

I should have my own QNAP within a few days.

We now have SongKong available for QNAP and since TVS-x82 series is listed at one of the servers supporting Container Station then it should work with your TVS1282, please see http://www.jthink.net/songkong/install_docker_qnap.jsp for install instructions.

Hi.

I installed Songkong on my qnap tvs1282 nas and followed the instructions on your website on how to install the container station and the latest intel songkong container. After i click create and the instance comes up, I am unable to see any music.

My music is located in in the .. /Multimedia/Music folder. I also have a shared folder called music where everyone has read / write access and guest can access.

I've tried creating various containers and each container cannot see the music in the music folder. Can you help.

But did you map your music folder to /music as explained in step 13 of the instructions http://www.jthink.net/songkong/en/install_docker_qnap.jsp

By default Docker apps are isolated from the actual files on your nas they are running within their own virtual computer within the nas. So you have to explicitly map a real folder to the songkong /music folder for it to be able to see the contents.

Paul,

Yes i did. I have a lowercase share for /music and i did enter the same thing that you have listed in step 13 of the install instructions and its not showing the subfolder under music when i initially going into Songkong. I can show you in filestation that i have a share defined for music with everyone read/write and then my actual music is located in ../multimedia/music on the server. In filestation and in windows i can see the music folder when i browse via windows or via filestation.

Can you let me know when you are available for a teamviewer session? I can install it and start a remote session with you. I am on the US east coast in eastern time zone.

Before we do that could you please email support@jthink.net

- Screenshot of SongKong
- Screenshot of QNAP folder config for this container, found as follows:
* In ContainerStation select Containers (last item on left hand side)
* Click on songkong
* Select Settings
* Select Advanced Settings
* Select Shared Folders
- Run Create Support Files from the Songkong menu (this willl send me your log files).

Issue is on last screen print above is that its not showing me all the subfolders under /music in Songkong. I showed via the screen print that i did of filestation that their are numerous folders - subdirectories under /music on server.

No, it should be the the latest version 5.13, if you are getting 5.11 please try redownloading the image.
