I’m tyring to figure out exactly what the WD Live is suppose to do when I tell it to make Video/Pictures/Audio available in the Shares section.
I have a couple of media server devices, media server and bluray player, that read media server clients and make the files on those clients available to my media servers. Both devices work with other network storage devices that have media serving enabled. I can use UPNP in both media servers to “find” the files being offered up for playback by those media clients. Both media servers use UPNP to do so.
I can also use those two media servers in either simple network mode, thinking SAMBA, or in NFS mode and I can find the 2 WD Live’s I have and playback media files stored on those 2 drives. So the drives are found and accessed in non-upnp mode.
When I turn on the media serving options in the WD Lives shouldn’t their media files in Shared Video, etc., folders be seen by the UPNP media servers?
Or do the WD Lives mean something else when I enable Media in the Shares setup?
