When I’m using My Cloud on local network, I just mount the folder as a drive and just open videofiles in Total commander with a simple enter key (or double click). Potplayer automatically opens and plays it instantly (streaming).
When I’m at work I do the same but with wd2go.com login, the Java mounts the drive, and I can use it from Total Commander. But in this case, when I try to open a media file, PotPlayer opens it, and I see that my network traffic is downloading the film instantly, but PotPlayer does not want to stream it. In fact when the download process done, Potplayer opens it and play it from temp folder automatically.
Is there any way to make it work, to play videos without downloading outside of the home network? Android application is streaming the videos nice and easy, but why can’t windows do the same? Maybe PotPlayers fault? Any working alternatives to give a try?
edit.: newest VLC media player does the same, opens video file download first, then play.
