Roku channels that let you access your Dropbox files from the cloud


Cloud Storage is a term that you probably have heard thrown around a lot of in the last several years. It is nothing more than an allocated space on a computer server that let's you store files. While there are many such services that offer free limited storage accounts, one of the more popular ones is Dropbox.

Once you sign up for a Free Dropbox account they give you 2 gigabytes of free online cloud storage. You can use this space to store photos, music, videos or any other legal files. 


Once files have been placed in your Dropbox account they can easily be shared with family or friends. Or, simply leave them there to back up something you don't want to lose. The best part about Dropbox for streamers is it can also be used to store video, music or photos that can be played on your television with a Roku or Android Media Streamer.




Dropbox offers one of the nicest and easiest to use interfaces to manage your files. They offer software that you can download that integrates nicely with your Mac or Windows computer for keeping a folder in sync. 

What this means is you can designate a folder to backup important files. Every time you update, delete or add a file into this folder on your computer, the folder will also automatically sync with your Dropbox cloud storage account folder. This is done in the background and requires no extra steps on your behalf. This is a great feature for those of us that always seem to forget to backup important files.

Dropbox also integrates nicely with Android or iPhones, tablets and laptops to keep them backed up to the cloud as well. If you decide you need extra space in your Dropbox account, this is available for purchase. Extra cloud storage can get quite costly and depending how much space you need, you may be better off by buying a NAS (Network Attached Storage) that can do the same thing for no monthly fee.

DriveCast takes it a step further and is more a web-based media manager. It integrates nicely with all your web based media and is more like a web-based iTunes solution. It even includes a recording feature that lets you record internet radio channels by time or date.
