I’ve got my “My Cloud” up and running at home and I’ve been able to play MP3’s remotely via work WiFi for several weeks - I just browse to them in the My Cloud App, click them and they play - no problem.
Today I tried to do the same and, although I can browse through my collection, the file won’t play - the player’s position bar showing the position in the track stays at the start and doesn’t move even when I press the play button.
I can browse through my cloud using the app with no problems. I can open an image file and view it with no problem. I can browse to an MP3, download it and play it locally on my android phone with VLC player with no problem.
My only issue is with streaming the file through the My Cloud app (which used to work fine until this morning).
The only other thing I can think of is that we had a power cut at home 2 days ago and I’ve not used the android app since then. I’m only using ~100GB of the My Cloud so I presumed the directories would have rebuilt themselves and, since then, I’ve played MP3s from it via WiFi on my SONOS system with no problems. I don’t think this is part of the problem, but it’s the only thing I can think of.
