I bought this NAS in the belief it would enable me, alongside backing up all my important files, to provide me with a means to access my music files remotely when at work. I am able to play music files on my mobile device (though seem to be stuck only being able to do so using the built-in music player rather than one of my choice?!?) but seem to only be able to have extremely limited access to my files remotely through the god awful My Cloud desktop app. Again it provides an option to play music but within WD own software rather than through my music player of choce! Is there anyway to get round this or any options that can be turned on that I have missed?
If, as I fear, there is no alternative I have created an idea on the suggestions page asking to add ability to open files remotely in explorer. http://community.wd.com/t5/Network-Product-Ideas/Ability-to-remotely-map-folders-from-My-Cloud-Ex2/idi-p/862582
Edit: Managed to find a work around for when accessing files on PC - please see http://community.wd.com/t5/WD-My-Cloud-EX2/How-to-configure-webdav/m-p/862594 - however, still trying to figure workaround for on my phone.
