I’ve been looking all over to try and find the right storage option for me but I cannot find the right/enough information for me to be able to make my decision. Please help!
I would like to be able to store a large amount of various information - photo’s, docs, photoshop files, videos (mpeg/mp4/avi) etc.
A big must is to be able to stream videos from it both at home on the TV (not smart TV) and when not at home straight to a laptop.
What do you suggest?
For remote connection (WAN)
The easy way is enabling ftp server on MyCloud dashboard.
Then in your OS use a ftp client to access and manage files (upload,download, sync, delete,ect…)
For multimedia my fav is XBMC add audio/video folder from ftp address and you will be able to watch/listen via ftp stream browsing folder remotely.
Remember that for video (specially HD) you will need a GOOD UPLOAD speed from the place you have your MyCloud connected.
I mean FAST connection.
The difficult way is to have openvpn server in bridge mode (tap) enabled on MyCloud (not tried yet but feasible) or in the router you attached the MyCloud or even in a computer in this LAN.
On the remote client WAN side (where you are) use openvpn client and then you could use MyCloud as if you where physically on this LAN.
