DMX Storage Channels can also be altered via the HTTP-Server. The interface currently works in most of the Webkit-based browsers (e.g. Google Chrome) and Mozilla Firefox (Version 4+). The interface can be enabled in the [VFS] menu.

Tested browsers:

Browser Version Works
Firefox 23 yes (see note)
Chromium 28.0.1500.95 yes
Konqueror 4.10.5 yes
Android Browser Android 4.3 yes

When using Firefox with a version < 23, make sure to enable "Support <input type=range> for Firefox".
