Default Best personal video streaming

I just started ripping my DVD's and storing them online along with all my other files. I currently have Dropbox but you can only stream the first 15 minutes of a movie I have on there(I think this is a recent restriction). So then I decided I'm going to switch to Google Drive since its cheaper anyway, but if you want to stream within the app you need to download the file first.

I have successfully installed Flash Player and been able to browse in Firefox on my tablet and view it that way on Google Drive but the quality is poor and controls are difficult.

And I have a USB to microUSB adapter and have played files from a thumbdrive(which works great) but I'm going to end up getting all my movies online anyway so an online streaming solution would be best.

Does anyone have any suggestions that they use?

I signed up for an Amazon Prime membership. You get free 2 day shipping on a lot of items and they have 100's, or maybe 1000's, of free streaming movies for prime members. You can also rent streaming movies.

Netflix is good, but it doesn't have the selection of new movies that Amazon does. Most of Netflix's new movies are DVD.

I have Amazon Prime, i'm talking about streaming my own movie collection. I have the mp4 files, i'm just looking for the best online site to store them so I can stream them.

Ohhh ok, gotcha. I misunderstood. Its been a long day.

Have you tried Box? I'm not sure what their storage limitations are.

A few others, that I know nothing about:

Zumocast

Jukulus

Viddler

Vzaar

That looks very promising. I can still back up my movies to Google or Dropbox for peace of mind, but stream them from my computer. Thanks!
