MotoCast can be installed on both Mac and Windows systems. Installation will be followed by setting up the remote access, so that files can be streamed at need. Logging in to the MotoCast account will be required. The MotoCast ID created for the user's device will be input. Of course, those who do not have such an account will first need to create it, for free. The utility will open in the system tray and certain settings can be changed from there, respectively content, general, network and account settings. Folders for which users need remote access can be selected from within the settings section, the account password can be changed and proxy or port forwarding settings can be modified.
