Air Playit Server
Stream video from your desktop to iOS with Air Playit Server

If you want to watch a video you have stored on your hard drive on your iPhone or iPad, the chances are that you will have to convert it into a suitable format. At the very least you will need to copy the file into your video library and both of these processes can take a long time. Air Playit offers and alternative, making it possible to stream video stored on your PC or Mac to your iPhone or Ipad without the need to perform lengthy conversions first.

AVI, MKV and WMV files can be streamed in real time, with any necessary conversion performed on the fly. This means that in order to watch such videos you need to have a network connection, but for those times when a connection is not going to be available, you have the option of converting videos in advance and downloading them to your iOS device.

Air Playit can be used with a wifi or 3G connection, so it can be used almost anywhere to access the video files you have stored on your computer at home. Performance is obviously superior over wifi, but 3G performance is also impressive.

The desktop software makes it easy to manage your video collection, and you have the option of configuring permissions for different types of videos. Videos can be made public so that they can be accessed by anyone, but there are also Admin and Kids groups that can be PIN protected. The software can also be used to make your video collection available through a web browser.

The server software is available for both Mac and Windows, and in order to use the app you will also need to install the relevant software on your iPhone or iPad. Both Air Playit HD - Streaming Video to iPad and Air Playit - Streaming Video to iPhone are available free of charge and can be downloaded from Downloadcrew.

Air Playit 1.5 ships with support for DRM videos purchased from iTunes store along with performance improvements.

Verdict:

A great alternative to Apple’s AirPlay that is far more flexible and can be easily tailored to suit your requirements.

Review for Air Playit

Posted by: Simon Levin, 25 August 2011 03:45

Air Playit is enables its users to stream any video or audio files that are stored on their PC straight to their iOS device. The live conversion means that video libraries can be converted instantly to a format that iOS devices can read. It works perfectly.

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
