Play directly to a media player

If your digital media player is UPnP enabled, the Networked VGA Grid can play direct the media player to play recorded files, without browsing through menus in the player.

Recorded files must be in MPEG-TS format and use the supported codecs: H.264 with MP3 or AAC audio. Having a viewer password could prevent the ability to use UPnP.

To play directly to a media player:

  1. Login to the Admin panel as admin. See Connect to the Admin panel.
  1. Ensure Share recorded files through UPnP is enabled on your Networked VGA Grid and for the channel or recorder you wish to share. (See Enable UPnP.)
  2. Go to the recorded files list for the desired channel or recorder. (See View list of recorded files.)
  3. From the list of files, select the file you want to play and click on the Play To icon for the file; a list of visible digital media players is displayed.
  4. Select a media player; the recording plays on the screen(s) connected to the media player.
