-New user interface for the Wi-Drive app
Solution to video playback problem
if your like me when you saw this product( the kingston Wi-Drive) the first thing you thought was that ill just copy all of my digital copies to this thing and play them off of that and they won’t take up space on my device well theres a little problem called DRM that has to do do with a copy/piracy protection embedded in the mv4 file which dozen allow the video playback which is exclusively stated in the online wi drive users manual what I’m going to try to do is first put the movie on the device and copy the movie from the device to the wi drive and see if that docent work
Some good, some bad
In general, this app is great and is easy to use. There are two problems with it though.
First, it occasionally crashes. This is annoying, but happens relatively infrequently.
Second, if you have local movies that you want to watch (i.e. You've downloaded them to your device from the drive) the app will absolutely destroy your battery. I just did a test where it took 15% of the battery in 10 minutes with the display on a pretty dark setting. This doesn't seem to happen as much when you're actually watching a movie via wifi. I suspect that it continues searching for a hard drive even when using local content.
Excellent For Movies On The Road
We are using the Wi Drive and app exclusively to watch movies while we are traveling on the road. We have had no problems with either the drive or app - my family can watch up to three movies at once, and there have been no glitches or drop-outs. The ONLY reason I am not giving FIVE stars is that the app does not allow you to connect AV cords to the iphone/ipad so you can connect and view the movie to an external monitor or TV....developers - can that be on the update list please???
