Using an iPad with a Synology NAS – Using picture in picture mode with Youtube videos

As YouTube can be an invaluable resource while learning how to setup a Synology NAS. When working from your iPad, it can be useful to also be able to see a video while you work in Disk Station Manager (DSM).

So in this video, we take a look at how you can use Picture in Picture mode, to watch a YouTube video while also working in Disk Station Manager.

Notes: Currently we have been unable to workout how you enable picture in picture mode on an iPad when in the YouTube app. So we have stuck with open YouTube from within Safari.

Quick reference notes:

  • Locate the double A icon located on the left side of Safari’s address bar.
  • When you select the AA icon a menu will open
  • Select Request Desktop Website

Notes: Please note that the Mobile mode version of Disk Station Manager, will not show all of the setting and options that the Desktop mode version of DSM will. So while DSM in Mobile mode is easier to work with, we recommend that you use the Desktop version of DSM when initially setting up your NAS.
