I bought a TP Link Archer C1200 Router today, attached a 2TB HDD, started a ftp server. My Phone (wifi) can read, open, and play videos from the ftp server, but my Windows Explorer can only Copy, when I right click on any file, it shows only a limited amount of options (image below). And if I open the file, it shows "How to open?" (also image below). I do have Full Write Access, as I can delete and copy stuff from my phone (wifi).

Other 3rd party FTP softwares does work on pc but I don't want to download extra softwares as they are buggy and I also want to access the drive as if it was an actual drive on windows explorer's native drive, so I woudn't have to download a entire movie to play it halfway. Raidrive does put virtual drives
