DropBoxee Loads Drop.io Files Into Boxee

DropBoxee Loads Drop.io Files Into Boxee

Want to load up to 100MB of video, audio or pictures into a Boxee media centre without any file copying or configuration? DropBoxee, a new Boxee app, grabs and plays just about any media from a drop.io stash.

100MB is a pretty firm limit, of course, so movies and substantial playlists are out of the question for now. But DropBoxee seems like a pretty convenient way to pass along playlists, photos and small home movies to friends using Boxee, or just set them aside for yourself when you’re away from your entertainment centre. As demonstrated at the developer’s page below, DropBoxee can play back audio tracks while the other files in a drop, like pictures, are being viewed, making for a neat, quick slideshow maker.

DropBoxee is a free app and is available through the App Box repository on up-to-date Boxee software. Loading files into drop.io “drops” doesn’t require any registration, and passwords are optional.
