New Synology software allows streaming direct to Apple TV

According to synology's notes of it's latest beta software - here

8. Video Station
Supports streaming videos to Apple TV (Requires DSM 4.2).
I don't own a synology, but can anyone test this out?

Could be the answer we've all been waiting for

Link is broken. I'd be happy to test it when I can get it.

I'm gonna poo a little if this is the case. I have been waiting for this on my Synology for quite some time! I may wait a bit for the stable release though...

It'll be downright amazing if it works, usually it's just the uber crappy Firefly DAAP software which the Synology already has.

Link working, downloading now. Can't test till I'm home though. Will post ASAP.

I've been a big fan of Synology for some time, it's one of the nicest peripherals I've ever used. Stable, easy to use, reliable, constant updates and fully featured. Even if the ATV streaming is a bust I'd still recommend it highly.
