I have been using Livedrive.com storage for awhile.
They are saying on official blog. I can stream movie and music to xbmc straight from sever with ftp.
http://blog.livedrive.com/tag/xbmc/

I could have set up ftp file very easily.
However I have never successfully watch a movie!
The movie keeps buffering every 1min or 2min.

I have very fast download speed (50bps) internet.

There seems like few threads about this issue on this forum but i can not find any solution.
Dose any body know what should i do ?
Or more over if there is anybody who are streaming HD movies successfully from livedrive sever?

I asked about this issue to livedrive support but they never reply it!

Please someone help me.

I guess you have 50Mbps and not 50bps Wink

But anyway - you should upload a Debug Log here else we can't help you.

I think FTP is generally considered the fast protocol, so I'd guess the problem is a bottleneck somewhere between you and LiveDrive. Have you tried streaming the file in VLC or one of the other media players?

Yes probably Livedrive.com has problem.

You have to try playing a movie and then upload a xbmc debug log including this try. Then we can have a look.

Were even HD movies working fine?
What about musics?

In my case, Music works fine for each songs but there are 2 minutes gap between next song start playing.

Also What plan do you have in Livedrive?
I have unlimited briefcase plan which is not offered from livedrive.com anymore.
Somebody mentioned unlimited play user can not use xbmc streaming.
