you don’t have to convert any of your movies, tv shows or other music videos to watch them on you iPad. if your computer / mac is on, you can now stream all your videos directly without having to convert them from avi, quicktime, mkv.
– this brilliant Air Video app for iPad does the conversion, on the fly, for you.
all you need is to download and install application for your computer / mac & ipad of course. by far the best app of this kind i’ve used (if you’ve streamed via wifi network, you’ll know there’s always a problem. not with this app).
the free version is limited to 4 files, but it displays files randomly. just go in & out of a directory to see one you want. $2.99 to remove this annoyance. it even works of a CD / DVD!
