Seedboxco.net Review

13:42 Posted by Jurgens Krause , , No comments

 Regardless of why you need one, there are so many Seedbox hosts available that it is becoming increasingly difficult to find the right one for your needs.


I recently signed up for a seedbox from seedboxco.net, and was pleasantly surprised by their offerings. The first thing that stood out to me was the very competitive pricing.


I signed up for the cheapest option, which is already more than I need, with I price that I have not seen beaten by anyone else.

What truly sets Seedboxco's seedboxes apart though is their "AppBox"concept:
With your Seedbox account you get access to a number of App Slots, which you can use for anything ranging from a basic hosted torrent client all the way to a cloud based Minecraft server. Other options include a functional Ubuntu Destktop Environment with VNC support, a PLEX Server, VPN Server or a wordpress site.

To get an app up and running is as simple as a couple of mouse clicks, and within minutes you are up and running.

I used my slots for a Transmission client, paired with an Ubuntu instance which I used to run all the scripts to clean up my downloads and Sync them to my local server, which is something you usually have to pay extra for.

App Installation Screen

I have dealt with a few other seedboxes in the past, in while the App concept might not be as intuitive as traditional seedboxes, it makes up for it by it's sheer versatility.

The last thing that stood out for me was the quick response times to technical queries. I had a few issues initially adapting to the App environment, but the staff were always quick and capable in resolving my problems.

All in all, I can highly recommend Seedboxco.net for your next seedbox


Stay tuned for a post on how I set up scripting on my seedboxco server to automate all my downloads!

Windows 10 - ATI Radeon Xpress 1150

I just spent the last 3 hours trying to get a working driver for an ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 installed on an old Dell Inspiron running Windows 10-64bit.

None of the links on discussion blogs seem to work anymore, and the WDM only driver from AMD did not actually contain any driver (as far as I could tell)

Downloaded Youtube content on Plex

08:40 Posted by Jurgens Krause 1 comment
My internet provider gives me uncapped data at night, but severely capped and throttled during the day. For this reason, I like to download some videos from YouTube and then make them accessible on my Plex server. This is especially handy for my wife, who loves a certain popular exercise channel.

Whatever your reason for putting YouTube videos on your Plex server, this is a handy guide to getting those videos on the server easily accessible.
