How can I add home movies that are stored on my computer to my server or NAS so that they will play back on the IMC or MP?

Movies stored on the computer can be added to the ReQuest Server via the upload folder (link to Samba instructions) or directly to the NAS share’s DVDs folder (link to NAS Guide).   The movies must be in the correct DVD ISO format.  We recommend WonderDVD’s WonderShare Video to DVD burner software: http://www.wonderdvd.com/wondershare-video-to-dvd-burner/how-to.html.  The WonderShare software allows conversion of several formats including: MP4, AVI, Mpeg, QuickTime and iTunes movies.
