I set this thing up recently after it had been sitting around for a couple of months. Got a 2tb drive ("documentation" says no larger than 1tb). First impression was "what a pile of crap". Crappy documentation. Very poor functioning on the remote. Very un-intuitive control via remote. Only a blank page on it's http server.
But the above tip makes it useful to me! Thanks!
With both vlc and movieplayer I can display the camera of my choice on Linux computers.
