Since its announcement in Barcelona last year, Option XYFI has gone through a lot of improvements. Today XYFI has achieved a giant step in introducing the Files & Media sharing and the Media files streaming features on the device.
Current devices in the field can also benefit from these new features by doing a firmware update.
Major improvements in this release 3.0.0 are :
Files and Media storage over WiFi – in previous firmware versions, files stored on the microSD are only accessible when XYFI is plugged to a PC and through the USB connection, not over WiFi. This new firmware allows Files and Media content accessible over WiFi (upload and download)
Files and Media storage sharing – not only the files are accessible over the WiFi, they are also shareable amongst XYFI users if the administrator chooses to do so
Streaming – XYFI users can also stream media content stored on the microSD over WiFi. Media files means video or music files. That means that a streaming server is installed on the XYFI enabling all 8 XYFI users to stream simultaneously either on different files or on the same media file.
Note: The streaming server can handle all popular media files. Please see document attached for the list of compatible media file formats
The user guide is updated to reflect the Files and Media and Streaming new features
A network compatibility problem is fixed in the module firmware. This problem was seen in operating the XYFI on some networks
