In order to be able to access the media files and transfer movies to Nexus 7 via home network(I use a Netgear ReadyNAS Duo in my home network.). I have searched the Play store but find no app to do that. Later, I searched far and wide and finally found out a simple solution about how to copy or transfer video from hard network drive to Nexus 7?

1. In your router, forward port 1223 to your network drive’s internal IP address and use TCP/UDP protocol.
2. On your tablet, install “ES File Explorer” and “MX Video Player” from Google Play store.
3. In ES File Explorer, go to LAN tab, menu, New, Server, and configure the options. After done, you will see the network drive as a Samba share. Touch it to browse files, tap on the video file and select “MX Video Player” to play.
Hope above method can work fine for you.
