Boxee for Schools?
I have had a great experience using Boxee at home to index, browse and watch films, listening to music and viewing pictures.
This morning I thought about its application in a school environment, where resources could be stored centrally on a NAS box or something similar. Boxee handles network shares and would be able to stream the resources direct to the end user.
Obviously this could have a serious impact on network bandwidth and responsiveness but I wondered if anyone else had thought about this. Would it be advisable to roll out to one media rich department only?!
What are your thoughts on this? In principle, it could be the perfect media hub for faculties to share and technicians could download all video resources to one place.
Your comments would be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
Why not just have the media accessible from a network share then?
I know of ClickView which is designed for education sector and handles Videos in what appears to be the same way, or you could whip something up with phpmotion and if you wanted to do it from within a browser for free.
There are users of both solutions on the forums around here, and i'm sure theres other methods, those are just what jumped into my head.
