WDC access from smart mobile

Thanks dear. I have 2 Qs plz.

  1. I want to set this in my coffee shop to allow customers view my videos (wdc connected to a wireless router via cable) on local network rather than consume internet bandwidth, the Q is : do they have to install an application on their devices (Android, IOS, PCs… etc) first to be able to view and play the videos ? or can access videos from their internet browsers. if yes then this will be a withdraw issue.

  2. is there a limited number of devices that can access the cloud all at a given time  ?


Here is the link to the User Manual. Reading it should answer your questions.



The My Cloud is not a web server. You’d need an app on the phone. And that app cannot just automatically connect… Users must be individually authorized.
