Dropbox(-like) support? - effemmeffe - 11th Mar, 2013 05:38 PM

Right now I'm using transmission on my mac computer to download (legal!) videos.
Transmission watch a folder for new torrent files and starts them automatically.
That folder is under my dropbox so I can put a new torrent to download from remote, let say when I'm in the office or during holydays.
I'm planning to buy a new RPi to run transmission and acting as a nas for my current RPi running XBMC and I'd like to have the same kind of dropbox (or dropbox like) automation.
Any idea?
Thanks in advance.

Some help appreciated.
