Streaming music to android

Hi folks,

I have music on my MBL and I’d like to stream it to my android phone.

Someone recommended I get ES File explorer.

This sees the correct Share but if I try to access it it says:

Login fails

This may be caused by:

  • The account has no permissions

Guess I have to give ES File Explorer my MBL User password somehow?

Or is there another way to steam music?


Hello, you can stream your files using the My Cloud app. Check the following link for more information.

How to access files on a WD My Cloud, Mirror, EX2, or EX4 Personal Cloud drive using WD My Cloud Mobile App

Thanks for your response.

Yes, I already have WD My Cloud and WD Photos working.

But My Cloud isn’t much of a music player is it?

It seems to just play an album and that’s it.

Whoever told me to try ES File Explorer suggested that I could navigate to my music library then it would ask me to select an app to play the track and then I would have the whole functionality of a dedictaed music player.

Is this possible?


“Guess I have to give ES File Explorer my MBL User password somehow?”

Yes you do. under “Network/LAN” you should be able to add the info to the server you are connecting to.
