I might add more features later, such as adding your own videos to it with the push of a button (if I can get help with uploading files through safe-js, which I asked about in this dev thread )
Currently limited to the 25mb file limit though, so no real movies can go on here yet due to that MaidSafe limit but that should change soon with vaults hopefully!
(At the risk of sounding controversial, I hope this shows everyone just how INSANELY EASY it will be to make a SUPER DISRUPTIVE encrypted-traffic Netflix-killer on SAFE. The code I gave above is literally all you need, along with the video files.)
Fork popcorn time my friend! What I love about safe is the network will give you a reliable amount/fast seeders to everything for every peice of data, even the most obscure. Keep up the great work Will!
I don’t know if you’re familiar with Kodi, but their concept and UI is pretty great too. She plays nice on Linux distros too.
I just have two complaints about it, 1) the setup is too cumbersome for any people who are not tech savvy. 2) you have to back out of file pages if the link doesn’t work, forcing the user to re-scroll through dozens of paginated lists.
Other than those two, Kodi might be a solid base to build on.
