When connected via HTTPS and attempting to playback video recording using the Synology DSCAM IOS Application on an iPhone the following error is displayed:

“An unknown error has occured.  This may be caused by an untrusted certificate.  Please install a trusted certificate on your Synology NAS and play again”


Apple’s IOS doesn’t trust the self installed certificate on the Synology Diskstation


Install a trusted certificate or turn on “Play Video over HTTP” in the settings on the DSCAM app.
