Goflex access app For an app that's supposed to allow you to stream your videos it is very poor in doing so. Can't even stream videos created by the Samsung galaxy nexus that created the video in the first place (reporting unsupported video format for device). Please update the app to provide the ability to view or download when pressing down for a few seconds on the selected video before it automatically tries to stream when video is selected.
Won't stream Bought this to stream workouts while I travel. It won't support video files such as MKV and MP4 though I download them and they play fine on my Droid Razr Maxx. What makes it even more sad is the same video files play just great on my iPod touch with little or no buffering. What gives Seagate? Great potential for this product, but if you don't fix these problems no one is going to use it!
Wasted Potential I chose a Seagate NAS drive specifically because the box advertised this app. I wanted to stream my music and video to my phone. This does not accomplish the task. The only option is to download the files rather than stream?! Really? Its okay for pictures though. I will be exploring other options... You make nice hardware Seagate, but this software leaves much to be desired.
Fail Fail Fail After updating to Lollipop app disappeared from my device. I will not install on my Nexus 5. It installed on my Nexus 9 but will not run. It has NEVER worked on my Nexus 7. Wouldn't it be nice if Seagate actually updated this thing to work with devices made in the last 2 years? Old Review (for older devices): *Video Playback Works Great* It takes a while to logon, but once on, navigation is easy and video playback is great. The quality of the video looks pretty good on my 3G phone. However this app seems to depend on flash, which is no longer supported. This app won't even install on my Nexus 7 running Jelly Bean.
Maaaan dis some bullsh*t!! Really??? bought a 3tb drive to back up and store my movies for streaming on my NoteII but I get a error message saying unsupported file type Googled "why can't I. ......" I see people complaining about this issue since 2011...WTH I would have thought that this would have been addressed by now. Can one of you fix this problem so we can stop complaining? I Just want enjoy the drive that I have paid myhard earned money for or do I need to take my business to WD??
Needs better video playback functionality Great for remote access to the drive. Poor for video playback. Could be better. Update: works for Nexus mobile but doesn't work for Nexus 7 tab although its not needed because you can access your server from your browser.
