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?

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!

System: XBMC HTPC with HDMI WASAPI & AudioEngine - Denon AVR-3808CI - Denon DVD-5900 Universal Player - Denon DCM-27 CD-Changer
- Sony BDP-S580 Blu-Ray - X-Box 360 - Android tablet wireless remote - 7.1 Streem/Axiom/Velodyne Surround System
If I have been able to help feel free to add to my reputation +/- below - thanks!
