Your video file will display in Windows/File Explorer or (My) Computer.

If you have changed the host name of your Seagate Wireless Plus, the new host name will display.
- If you connected the drive with the USB cable, then it will show up under your list of disk drives, as usual.

If you are connected via wi-fi, connect to your home network in your network settings.
