Media Player

The media player application allows you to play digital audio and video files that are stored on the network drive directly in the web interface. Simply double-click the files in the file explorer and the media player opens automatically to start playback.

The media player (flash player) supports following file formats natively: *.mp3, *.flv and *.swf. For other file formats, media playback is handled by the available plug-ins of the web browser (e.g. Quicktime for *.mov videos).
