Soon to be released Version #4 of accessv4.htm:
What this project has turned into is one very powerful media server for the Dreamcatcher with all the up to date news, weather and more.
For example my newly purchased Fire stick from Amazon now displays all the media and Othernet data on the living room big screen TV
Hardest part was setting up bookmarks in the Firefox browser, tricky uses the button with the three lines on it to get back to the pin it menu.
First you need a simple log in book mark for Othernet “192.168.1.233” on my setup.
Second bookmark link to Robert’s othernet.htm must be the long “192.168.1.233/FS/get/home:////external_sdcard/othernet.htm”
Note the “guest/” and the IP address is for hotspot mode on the Dreamcatcher.
First log in as guest with bookmark, start bookmark for Robert’s othernet.htm and have fun.
Starting this way solved all the screen navigation problems with the Fire Stick 4k everything runs full screen.
Same procedure works on the Amazon silk browser,seems to support more video resolutions.
Lots more to come over the next days.
Ok listen up, version #3 only requires the correct IP number in the startup bookmark easy to setup easy to use, version #4 will basically require you to set up the correct IP numbers for the selector buttons in the last section of the accessv4.htm code and any customization of the links, #4 if you like to customized things.
I have included Robert’s code offerings in the version #4 package othernet.htm archive.htm current.htm, the main example of othernet.htm has a typo that causes errors, these files plus the old version of othernet.htm all work and are in the package also included version 3 in version 4 package read help4.txt.
Amazon Firestick 4K demo on big screen, because of a lack of buttons/controls the messages,news, Wikipedia are best read in full screen mode. Ok just figured out how to scroll, get inside the frame press the center of the joystick then hit the ring up or down
Clicking on links “Modified,Name,Date” in the message windows will change the sort order of the files. Found Firestick browsers do not support PDF files.
