I used the old Version Madsonic5.0-B3860-012.spk on my Synology 1813+ with installed but stopped serviio package and Java 7 in the past.
I had also problems to activate transcoding, but I can't remember how I fixed this.
Now I tested the newest version "Madsonic5.1-B5060-016.spk" (deinstalled Madsonic before), but now with Java 8 an deinstalled serviio and installed again.
After installation I updated to 5.1.5150 by copying madsonic.war and madsonic-booter.jar from file "20140927_madsonic-5.1.5150-standalone.zip".
After log in and scanning my media-Files I only can play music (mp3).
Playing a movie leads to "Error loading media: File could not be played!".
In help it shows "WARNING no transcoder found!":

WARNING no transcoder found!
I tested with copying the ffmpeg binary from serviio directory and replaced the old one in /volume1/@appstore/Madsonic/transcode.
I changed permission to 775 and the owner to "madsonic" (instead of root after copying).
Transcoding does not work!
On 4.6.2014 you wrote:
Serviio is only needed for the ffmpeg version. With newer versions of the Madsonic plugin, there will be no more dependency on this package (ffmpeg).
Is this done with current version (5.1.5150) for Synology (after copying madsonic.war and madsonic-booter.jar)?
Or is serviio package still be necessary?
How can I get transcoding back to life?
Can we expect a current package for Synology or is copying madsonic.war and madsonic-booter.jar over version 5.1-B5060-016 enough?
Thankz for this fantastic tool!
If I copy the ffmpeg from the Synology (from /use/syno/bin), the help page shows "ffmpeg version 2.0.2 (30.05.2014)".
But I still can not play videos.
