This player also provides the ability to view digital images using Picasa Web Albums, and of course plays CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray Discs.
This powerful Blu-ray Disc player is able to stream video, music, game content and images from mobile devices, the Internet and other components. It also supports the popular Yamaha AV Controller App for Apple iOS and Android devices that provides seamless control of the player.
