Sorry for the loooooong gaps between posts, but work commitments have kept me busy.
This post is all about ‘Air Video’ which allows you to stream movies from your computer to your iphone.
And guess what, you can even watch AVI’s and MPG movies as it converts them to Apple’s MP4 format on the fly!
There is a free version which limits how many movies you can access off your drive, and an unlimited version for just $4.19 NZ .
It’s dead simple to use and bloody cool!

Enjoy your entire video collection everywhere! *
Is your iPhone/iPod touch full and yet it contains only a fraction of your video library? Are your videos in format unsupported by iPhone/iPod touch? Think of all those AVI, DivX, MKV and other files in your collection that would take weeks to convert just to be playable on iPhone.
Air Video is the ultimate solution for these problems.
★ Video Streaming ★
Instead of having to synchronize your videos to device you can now watch them over air. Suddenly the capacity of your iPhone/iPod touch is infinite and the nuisance of iTunes is gone.
★ Live Conversion ★
iPhone and iPod touch are very picky about the video formats they can play. Normally this means you need to convert the entire video before you can watch it. This can easily take an hour!
With Air Video this is no longer an issue. Air Video supports almost all video formats and performs the conversion *on fly*. That means you don’t have to wait until the file gets converted any more. You can start watching it almost immediately.

Air Video comes packed with features. It can share folders on your harddrive as well as iTunes playlists. It supports live conversion as well as offline conversion where the entire file is converted upfront. It lets you customize the conversion settings, adjust resolution, zoom and crop the video. And you can have unlimited set of user defined conversion profiles.
* Compared to full version Air Video Free limits the number of displayed items in each folder.
* Air Video works over local network and over internet (including 3G). However to enjoy streaming over internet your router must support UPnP or NAT-PMP protocols so that Air Video can setup the port forwarding for you.
* Air Video will not play DRM protected videos.
* Live Conversion requires firmware 3.0.
The free server software (for both Mac OS X and Windows) needed to stream and convert the videos can be downloaded at http://www.inmethod.com/air-video/download.html
If you are a Mac user, OS X Leopard (10.5) is required for Video Conversion. For Video Streaming, OS X Tiger (10.4) is enough.
