NO, I did not try to use chrome, simply because on this computer I do not have it installed. my other room’s computer does and my 4 linux mint 17 boxes have chromium but not invested any more time, yet to this problem
I use pepperflash in 3 of the linux builds. no idea, never , yet, tried to access using the laptop or other desktop. I was trying to set up another streaming server set up on one of the networks i have here. I was having troubles with the tv getting to stuff in the mybooklive shares. am trying serviio, cyberlink’s server for media, and KooRaRoo which is fairly good and fast, I got rid of my nero home essential dlna due to problems of its own.
but, thanks, i will try the other computer and chrome, it is there and up to date.
I will also look into the desktop apps though i do not think they do what i am looking for the wd2go to do. I have all the WD smartware installed and do use the desktop apps, netview and WD Link routinely, but for the usb connected 3tb extra storage i have in the mybooklive home personal cloud 4tb media. i do not use any back up or safepoints, can not spare the space they take up.
will try your suggestions, and appreciate the time /response
I did not originally realize that the ‘cloud desktop app’ was a separate thing. I had not installed it, just did.
Howver, i do not have any trouble accessing my Mybooklive duo settings, shares directly from any of my computers, Linux either. It has always been great and readily available repository for my videos, movies, whatever even the usb connected extra 2tb works well , slowly, but not a snail and availble throughout the local networks.
My issue has just been recent with the Oracle Java redirect when trying to go through wd2go on line. I have ,as stated, all current and updated OS, drivers and that includes flash, oracle java. just did it on each appropriate computer.it went through the whole process and even cleared up any outdated installs. no idea why, still , i can not get past the oracle page, did not go through any of the hypertext links there, yet. wanted to check out here for others with similar issues, first to make sure it was not a bad redirect or hijack. at least that was cleared up.
