I was wondering if I could add some of my home movies to my new ipad to show some of my friends. Is it possible to do and if so how?
Air Playit does similar, but is free. Works very well. Can be used over 3G as well--or on a remote wifi network.I've just started using an app called Air Video which not only let's you connect to your PC/Mac via WiFi and play all your .avi files but also concerts them ready for storage & playing on your iPad Had no issues with it thus far and is very easy to use.
Air PlayIt's latest update solved all problems for me. Now it works so well that I have deleted AirPlay on my iOS devices and uninstalled the server part.Yeah used to use Air-PlayIt but it just kept reporting that I had reached my max folder size for converted movies when I hadn't, also kept crashing... This however looks very similar, does exactly the same job but all without crashing - hence the reason for moving from Air-PlayIt
I didn't mean the streamer app. I'm talking about the VLC Media Player app that was released in October 2010 and pulled from the App Store the following month. You can add .avi and other file types to the app in iTunes.I tried the VLC Streamer app and it worked well enough at the time but I did used to get the odd jumpy video or strangely a green screen with audio... Also didn't particularly like the GUI.
It should still be in your iTunes library on your computer even if you deleted it from your phone. Just check the box next to it and sync it back on.I know was just saying I also tried the streaming app since it was also related to my initial post
As for the fabled VNC app, I remember installing it ages ago before it got pulled - I'm guessing it won't be listed in my purchased items?
