With no fanfare, Dropbox has arrived in the Roku channel store. And the video playback possibilities are highly intriguing.
Dropbox is a simple way to store and share your files. And now you can bring all the photos and videos in your Dropbox straight to your TV.
While I haven’t yet taken the app for a spin, I’m envisioning a scenario where exported TiVo recordings could live… for a Plex alternative or even in conjunction with Plex, in handling those transcoding and archival duties. Hm. Those of you with Blu-ray rips may have some interesting options as well.
In reviewing my Dropbox account this morning, it appears I have 55GB available. That’s decent, but pales in comparison to Amazon’s $60/yr cloud storage plan to include unlimited storage… but doesn’t yet have an equivalent Roku app. And then there’s rumors of a new Apple TV with, once again, an app store — which I’ll need for any scenario given Apple’s stingy iCloud plans.
