The WD TV Live may not have the clout of Roku or Boxee, but these little streaming boxes are a good choice for streamers and home media enthusiasts. They added Spotify to the lineup last month, which makes the box a solid replacement for your laptop or iPod when you just need a few tunes, and now they’ve announced Vimeo and Playjam access as well.
That’s really all there is to it.
You know Vimeo, no doubt, and Playjam is a games channel full of time-wasters to play while you’re waiting for your movie load up or transfer. They’ll both be installed via a firmware update for the WD TV.
I really can’t make the news last any longer than that. I’m going to use this space to say that hopping around Vimeo randomly really produces some excellent results. A ton of people I know in the creative industry have cool side projects and things there, and you can find all sorts of crazy animations, short documentaries, and insane music videos there, and the community is very supportive. It’s better than YouTube for just leaning back and browsing for interesting stuff.
Okay, that’s probably enough words that this post doesn’t look weird.
