Libox: Access Your Media Files Anywhere

Posted on July 26, 2010. Filed under: Freeware/Shareware, networking | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

MakeUseOf has a post about Libox which will stream your Media Files Anywhere from your computer.

You leave your home computer on, and use this to sync and stream your media (music, video, etc.) to the computer/phone/etc. you’re currently using.

“With LIBOX you can access your media anywhere you have an internet connection. After you installed LIBOX Desktop application on at least one of your computers, go to the LIBOX website and login with your account. You will be automatically redirected to the Web Access interface where you can play your music and view your movies and photos.”

Since it’s coming from your (presumably) legal copy at home, you can legally use it yourself.
