  • Use the Seagate Media App
  • Disable Internet Mode
  • Stream to only one device connected directly to the Seagate Wireless Wi-Fi network
  • Turn on Stream and Download mode
           stream and download
  • Let the drive index in advance (if a lot of content was added turn the drive on and let it sit while it catalogs the files)
  • Play only .mp4 (non-DRM) videos that has less than a 4Mb/s bit rate
  • Minimize the distance between the Seagate Wireless device and your mobile device
