Air Playit is going to change the way you transfer video and music from your computer to iPhone/ iPad, just say goodbye to the days when you have to sync the media from iTunes. As long as long as your iPhone or iPad is connected with WiFi, 3G/4G network, just play your desired videos and music on your iOS device directly, irrespective of the file format.

Here I would like to introduce this innovative video and audio streaming software to you. Air Playit is composed of a server and a client application, and the connection between them is the wireless network (WiFi, 3G or 4G). The server is mainly for sharing the videos and music folder, and the client application is used mainly for staying connected with the server to get the media streaming from it.

Setting up Air Playit server onto the desktop is simple and quick. Run it and click “Shared Folder”, you can not only add video/music folder from hard disk but also import the iTunes playlist for streaming. Other functions could also be found here, for instance, click “Permission” tab and users can set permission level (Admin, Kid and Public) to the shared file. Under the “Information” tab, the IP address of your server computer is shown. The “Web” tab allows users to access the shared media using any web browser with the URL shown on the server.With Air Playit installed, you can transfer your videos and music wirelessly with little time and effort.

Key features of Air Playit:

The supported video formats include the HD videos MKV, M2TS, AVCHD, TP, MPEG-TS, AVC and MOD etc and regular videos such as MPEG1/2, WMV, ASF, AVI, MOV, RM/RMBV, FLV, MP4, H.264, M4V, WTV, WebM.

Air Playit also works as remote video converter software for you to add/manage video conversion tasks on your iOS device, which enables you to download the audio video files to your device wirelessly over WiFi, 3G/4G network and play them offline at any time.

HTTP server

Air Playit enables users to access the videos and audios stored on a PC or Mac using any web browser.

Besides the above features, Air Playit has even more to offer. For instance, it enables users to add remote server by specifying IP address and supports multi-audio tracks video for you to choose any language in the video file. It can also remotely power off your computer after finishing watching. Compared with other video/audio streaming software, Air Playit has an innovative feature- TV out that empowers you to stream video & music to TV via iPhone iPad etc. It is a good idea to use Air Playit and start a new way to transfer your videos and music and play them on your beloved iOS device.

How to use Air Playit to transfer media from computer to your iOS device.

Download Air Playit server (both Mac and Windows versions are available) and install it onto the computer, and then install the client app for iPad or client app for iPhone on your iOS device.

Run Air Playit server, click “Shared folders” and add the video or music folder that you need to stream to your iPad or iPhone.

On your iPad or iPhone, run the client app and add your server and tap it. The client app will detect and connect to the server automatically by Bonjour service. If sometimes it can’t find the Bonjour connection information, you need to manually input the server address which is shown on the server or close the firewall for a try. Here I would like to take iPhone for example.

Browse the shard folders under the server, then tap your desired folder, select any file that you need and click “Play”, just play the music and video on the go without waiting for the conversion.


Using this software will certainly take care of pain of transferring multi-media files from your desktop to your iOS device. Do let us know your review of Air playit or any other streaming software if you are using?

Vimeo Launched HTML5 Video Player for iPhone and iPad

clip_image001Vimeo is a popular video sharing and streaming website similar to YouTube in functionality. Recently, Vimeo has launched a universal non-flash based video player for Apple iDevices (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch) so that they can run Vimeo videos without Adobe Flash support. This new player is based on the HTML 5 standard, something which YouTube has been supporting for quite some time now.

This universal video player differs from the one previously launched player as the recent one is capable of detecting the device which the user is using to access the Vimeo service and then provides an optimized playback and video feed according to what it detects. The Flash free HTML 5 based player also means precious bandwidth can also be saved and H.264 encoded video can be sent directly to devices like the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. However, service to iOS users is not free. In order for users to avail the Vimeo service on their iOS enabled iDevice, they must have a paid Vimeo Plus account which costs $60 per year in subscription fees.

In a report published by USA Today, Vimeo president talked about the capabilities of the new universal player by Vimeo, saying “The videos will be playable in any browser and work with future platforms as well.” So if you are interested in getting Vimeo content on your iPhone or any other Apple device, you can get it for as low as $60 a year.
