Video support

On MyCloud iOS app, I could'nt open many videos : wmv, mkv, avi...

We should be able to open any of them.




Can anyone offer an opinion on any product potentially in development that would resemble a 6 or 8-bay EX4 (lets call them EX6 or EX8) in a similar form-factor as the EX4, only 6 or 8 bays wide, along with upgraded CPU and RAM ?


I do not expect anyone from WD to break ranks by releasing internal plans, however an indication that such a product may become available sometime during 2015 would be useful and avoid my thoughts turning to alternative 5-8 bay products


Why does this matter to me ? I have an EX4 with 4x 4TB WD RED drives, in a single RAID-5 configuration, now more than 80% full with 10-20GB incremental consumed daily


An interim solution would be to upgrade to 4x 6TB ED RED drives either in-situ or in a second EX4, however this leaves me with three areas of concern


(1) the time taken to rebuild a 4x 6TB RAID-5 array

(2) an asymmteric configuration between a 16TB EX4 and a 24TB EX4

(3) what to do with 4 perfectly good 4TB drives ? An EX6 would support these and pair with a 24TB EX4 or an EX8 could accomodate all my 2TB WD RED drives sitting in two againg HP EX490 WHS servers

In MyCloud iOS app, it could interesting to allow to split screen in 2 parts to see 2 differents documents/pictures/videos at the same times.
