Wow, this device has so many nooks and crannies that I’ve still got so much to uncover. In my last two posts I looked at images – watching a slideshow on your O!Play thanks to DLNS streaming and accessing Flickr – but today I am looking at music playback on the ASUS O!Play BDS-700 media player.

ASUS O!Play BDS-700 media player

To start with go to the Home menu and select Music. You will need to be connected to your DLNA server here so if you haven’t done that yet, then visit my post here that will talk you through exactly how to do it.

Locating your music is as basic as accessing it via folders on your PC. It’s the same setup after all. Once you’ve hit a folder that you like just select the song you want to start listening from and press the Play button on your BDS-700 remote control. Ta da! Music playeth.

If you decide you hate the song or you happen to have tapped the wrong one, just use the ASUS O!Play BDS-700 remote buttons to skip through the various songs. The buttons you need are the same as for a Blu-ray or DVD – the double arrows below Play.

Boy do I have a hard life – boogie and write while reviewing this ace gadget.

The next feature that I simply love is the one where you can set your image slideshows to music. It’s not as simple to activate as this last step but not rocket science either. Go back to your Home page and select Photos. Navigate along to the images you want to use (my walkthrough is here) and once they are fullscreen tap the remote to get the menu up at the bottom left-hand side of the screen.

Next press the up arrow to get to the choice between image or music files, select the music icon, tap the down arrow and choose Select Files. A pop-up box will open saying DLNA – press OK. Now navigate to your music files exactly the same way as you did above.

When you hit the folder you want to listen to, press the red R button and the setup will automatically clear the screen. Press Play and enjoy your slideshow to music on the ASUS O!Play BDS-700 media player. Lovely…

    Yes. The remote control design is compatible with majority of
    smartphone devices because it connects to a web browser.      

    Since it’s controlled via the internet, you could control the device even
    in your kitchen, like  your music volume.
