Movie lybrary in a cloud service - iglencar - 2012-03-13 17:07

Dear fellow users.
I have almost 16TB of movies and series in my storage, since cloud services like amazon and icloud are becoming very popular, is there any support for me to host my movies in those services and access in xbmc like it was in my storage?

yes, but you might want to be more specific.

Well basicaly, i need to transfer, my 16tb to a cloud service lets say for example icloud. can i add the cloud as a drive for me to get my files from there?
So it can add to my regular library?

using iCloud, no, because users have no direct access. Find a service that supports a file sharing protocol that XBMC supports, like webDAV, FTP, etc.

you might want to test a free service with a couple of files and check speeds before transferring 16TB!
