Enjoy your entire video collection everywhere! *
Get more of your video library on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. Air Video is a great solution to watch your AVI, DivX, MKV and other videos.
* Video Streaming *
Don't synchronize your videos, watch them over air! Suddenly the capacity of your devices is infinite!
* Live Conversion *
Air Video supports almost all video formats and performs the conversion "on-the-fly". No waiting for files to convert, they are done in real time as you watch!
* One Touch Offline Conversion *
If you want to store your video inside the device instead of streaming it, Air Video will convert it for you to iPhone friendly format. Forget the hassle with conversion settings, just one tap and the video conversion is on.
* * *
Air Video comes packed with features. It can share folders on your harddrive as well as iTunes playlists. It supports live conversion and offline conversion where the entire file is converted upfront. It lets you customize the conversion settings, zoom and crop the video.
* 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. Otherwise you will need to configure the port forwarding manually.
* Air Video will not play DRM protected videos. All video content purchased through iTunes includes DRM. Video podcast content is free and does not include DRM protection.
The free server software (available for OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and Microsoft Windows) is needed to stream and convert the videos and can be downloaded at http://airvideoapp.com .

What's New in Version 2.4.16
Improve iOS 7 compatibility
This use to be my "go to" app... Now?
This is the saddest app story. AV was amazing. I was able to effortlessly play 570 movies from a network drive, I was not bogged down with wasted memory saving converted copies of movies I am watching. AV could recognize vast amounts of movie files in a folder instead of me having to cherry pick through each folder for the vid file. There was never a buffer, pre-start so that movie would be ready to go in 15 min... None of that. It would just always work.
But now - what a mess. It freezes, it dumps me out of the entire program, it holds up on the source main screen and closing. Making for a tragic waste of valuable Audio Video time. So much for impressing friends. I am not mentioning the complete loss of remote watching. Now, I just get stuttering movies and finally "server unavailable" or "offline?"
Get this fixed. Drop your other failed AV HD and get back to basics. This is very disappointing.
Still love the app immensely, but I note that latest update is much more sensitive to WiFi signal/noise levels. Using enterprise-class access point with better quality issues mitigation, works better. Simple Airport Express and Linksys devices at same distance can't stream as consistently.
Also had crash issues at first... Install app, reboot iPad, launch... Be sure to reboot. If still crashing, reboot again, remove app, reboot, reinstall, reboot. I 'fix' many app update crashing issues that way, regardless of developer, this is no different. No issues now.
Does not work anymore. :(
I LOVED this app when it worked. It worked great for the whole last year and now it has a serious problem. I don't know what is going on. The "unexpected error" message pops up everytime I try to play a video. I have tried everything I could think of to fix the problem but nothing seems working. For now, I just restart the server computer everytime I want to watch a video but it only works less than an hour. 40-50minutes after restarting the server computer, the error message always pops up and stops everyting. It means I have to keep restarting the computer if I want to finish watching one video. I noticed there is Air Video HD and wonder it will have the same problem or fix my problem...
