- Configuring the Media Server in NAS200.
This article will explain to the user about the Media Server and how to configure it. If you use a media adapter to send content to your entertainment system, then you can use the Network Storage System as a media server.
The Network Storage System can be located by compatible media adapters using the UPnP AV standard. Media content on the Network Storage System can then be accessed and played by the media adapters.
Configuring the Media Server.
Open the Internet Explorer and go to the Network storage's Web Based Set-up Utility. For instructions, click here.
Once the set-up page appear, click Administration > Media Server and Enable the Media Server.
Enter the name of the Media Server as it should be displayed on client's devices.
Specify the directories that the media server should scan for media content, the root directory of each drive will be displayed by default. You can specify up to four directories that the media server should scan for media content. Select the appropriate check box to select or deselect a directory and the select file type from the drop down menu.
Once you click Browse, a folder browser screen will appear on the screen. On this screen you can specify the folder or create a new folder and click Apply.
