My son was visiting today and I saw our WD Live do something I did not know was possible. We were watching a video on the WD live which was located on a shared drive on an external computer in the other room when suddenly the screen went black and we started viewing pictures located on his Android phone. It took a while to believe what I was seeing, but once I decided it was really happening we viewed all the pictures on his phone and it was great. Once we were done with that I did not know how to get control back again so power cycled the WD player and everything was normal again.
So my question is - what happened there! There was so much chaos here I never got what he pressed on the Android phone to make that happen. I just know he was viewing pictures on his phone and he was about to quit when it happened. Someone may have even hit something on the WD remote for all I know. I was just wondering if anyone could point me to how that could happen and is it an officially supported feature. I can’t find anything that describes such a feature. The Android was logged into my local WiFi network and so was the WD Live. Is there some way to view pictures on an Android by “pushing” them to the WD Live player?
