WD TV Play also lets users enjoy a variety of media they already own, such as photos, music and videos. Users can play content located on any computer or network attached storage that has a DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) server, as well as from any directly connected digital camcorder, camera or USB drive.

WD TV Play's wireless or Ethernet connections support Full-HD 1080p video streaming. The setup process is simple so that users are up and running in minutes. Once connected, users navigate a an app-based user interface to play their entertainment or personalize their home screen with favorite apps.
