Getting Started with Mediaflux Explorer

Mediaflux Explorer is a Java application that you run on your desktop computer. It interacts with the Mediaflux server via the secure HTTPS protocol. This application complements the standard web-based Mediaflux Desktop interface. The focus of the Mediaflux Explorer is uploads, downloads, queries and sharing of data.

The HTTPS protocol is the most robust way to move data in and out of Mediaflux.  This is because uploads and downloads are atomic (one transaction – the server is told what to expect) and because it is very difficult to corrupt an HTTPS data stream.
