Volume playback priority

High data rate video playback is very hardware demanding. As Silverstack offers a multiple destination backup option, your valuable clips will be stored in different volumes. Different types of volumes may have variant interface connections. To increase playback performance in Silverstack it is possible to select the playback priority.

To accomplish that you will have to go to the Volumes tab, select the volume you want to set its playback priority and adjust it on the right panel (figure 1 #1).

If your main playback volume is offline, Silverstack will automatically select another volume in the order of your playback priority . If no priority is selected, Silverstack will randomly select the playback source volume.
