Access USB storage on the base station via local network, e.g. NFS, FTP, SFTP, SSH, SMB

As per "How do I view videos saved on a local storage USB device?", we're advised to remove the USB drive and insert it to the computer.


> Insert the USB device into a USB port on your computer.


Please implement a way to access the USB drive via local network. For example, expose it via NFS, FTP, SFTP, SSH, SMB or whatever. As soon as we get at least one way of accessing the videos over the local network, no other way is really needed.


And/or access from the mobile app.

Mobile app is not enough, a programmatic/scriptable way of accessing the storage is needed.


an alternative would be to save the files on a NAS.


I would like to be able to access the USB drive from my network and not have to pull it out of the base station.
