Local Area Network Hosting URL Hacks etc. Need Explanation

It's obvious Rise Vision doesn't support local files for playback etc. And it has to be accessible through http etc. Are there explicit guidelines as to how this has to be input or the proper syntax? I see mention of adding .com and then changing the HTML or installing IIS on a Windows machine to accomplish this. I just want to see what has worked in these regards and maybe a little more info on steps taken. I have a Synology NAS (has built in Apache I hear) and am supporting a comic book store that wants to play movie trailers, reviews, soundtracks etc in the background and running multiple displays using their slow internet bandwidth won't work. I just really need to know how to properly input into that URL field to try this out.

I want to run 3-4 devices with all media being hosted in this one NAS.

Hi Bob,

We recently made a change where the workaround involving adding a '.com' to an address is no longer necessary. The modification involving HTML was in the Presentation itself in order to point to the proper path for the video.

You should be able to add the URL to the video on the server without needing to do any extra hurdles. If you're using Apache, you shouldn't need to worry about IIS.
