okay, start off my saying i have a wd my book live personal cloud 2 tb and a wd tv live streaming media player.
let’s say i have the a movie called “blair witch” on a usb when i put the usb into the wd my tv live the meta data of the movie aloing with a youtube option to watch the trailer would also be available to me. is there a way to do this with the nas because right now on how it is set up there is no option.
i called wd and asked them because i recently purchased a 3 tb some other drive and it seriously bothered me that i could not watch the trailer on the nas. the customer of the other nas company said that the nas could download the info and it should work as a usb with the youtube trailer. yet it didnt . so i called up the company i bought it from returned it and payed 30 dollars more for 1 tb less of space for a wd brand thinking it would work because they said it would.
so far it has not. i called again today. the woman on the other end of the phone said once again that it could in fact be done but she could only help me so much since it was sunday and the other office is closed.
i was reading online on my phone and i was reading that it could not be done. when i see the file and click options a menu usually pops up with options to copy delete and to view the youtube trailer as happens with the usb. with the nas i do not get nearly as many options as i do with the usb.
so is there anyone out there that could help me with this dilemma of being told it can be done by the tech support team of wd and tiger direct and then reading online that it can not in fact be done.
thank you in advance.
ps i also have all the current updates for my router wd tv live sreaming media player and as well as my nas. thank you
