This supposed to be here, but whatever. Fits both blogs.
I was looking for something like this for a long time now. I keep books, Documents folder and some app settings in Dropbox to sync between computers. This also allows me to quickly open books in iBook app on iPad, but videos were always a problem.
I sync Podcasts using Instacast but while it is really good with syncing, the subscriptions management is left to be desired. And for non-podcast videos there was no solution in sight… Until now.
Turns out there is a whole undergroun BitTorrent lab producing some amazing tools like BitTorrent Sync. I have installed it on my server computer that holds all the media library, chose folder to sync, copied the secret string and pasted it in on my notebook.
This is it, it started file exchange, no annoying dialogs or popups, the little icon is spinning in the menu bar and the files are being transferred. Pretty much like Dropbox, except that I can’t access the files online. But hey, it’s free and there is no size limit!
So far it is simply amazing, the only thing it is not exactly fast somehow. Which is strange since both computers are in the same networks. I’ll let it run for a while and will see what comes out of it.
