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.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
