If you are like me and are a real movie lover, then you probably have a sizeable Blu-ray/DVD archive. Well, I ripped my movies and put them on my NAS so that I can watch them any time without have to haul out all the Blu-ray/DVDs. The one limitation in the past that I have had is that devices like Chromecast and Fire TV cannot play videos directly from that NAS media server. So, I’m looking for an alternative storage location for these movies and I found Amazon Cloud Drive storage is a good option with the launch of unlimited storage for Amazon Cloud Drive.
