Stream all of your videos from the web – wherever you are

BackupBob makes it easy to upload your files and sync them between all of your PCs, but we’re always looking for new ways to help you make the most of your files once they’re online. Backing up your videos online is a great way to keep them safe – and we’ve always let you stream them to your mobile device with our BackupBob Mobile app for iPhone and iPad. Now we’re excited to announce that you can take advantage of our fantastic video streaming from your web browser too – wherever you are!

With BackupBob you can now log in to your web portal and play any video file straight from your browser. It doesn’t matter what format the video is in – we support almost every type of non-DRM video – and you don’t need to wait for the video to convert or process – it will stream straight away on the fly. Simply go to any video in your account and select Play Video:

If you are using an HTML-5 enabled web browser then you should find that you have full control over your video playing experience – you can skip forward and backwards through the video, view your video full screen and more. If you don’t have an HTML-5 enabled web browser yet then don’t worry – you can use our Flash player, which will let you view full screen, but won’t let you skip back and forwards through the video.

Have any thoughts or feedback on the new video streaming? We’d love to hear from you! Simply tell us your thoughts in the comments section below this post.
