We already have a nice idea of file sharing services, lately we have talked a lot about Dropbox, Box, and the comparison between them.

  • Playback in browser – Several formats are supported to have a playback in the browser without downloading.
  • Desktop Uploader – An uploader for files greater than 100 Mb in size is available.
