**NO NEED TO CONVERT OR SYNC**
Why bother converting your stuff to an iPhone/iPod size or iPad format before you can view it? Syncing files to your iOS device is a pain.
StreamToMe's companion program *ServeToMe*, which runs on your Mac or PC, does that for you. StreamToMe users can download ServeToMe for free from http://zqueue.com/streamtome
ServeToMe converts the files to an iPhone/iPad-friendly format *on-the-fly*, so a single touch will start playback on your device in as little as 5 seconds.
**UP TO HD QUALITY**
You can stream movies up to HD quality (1080p) over WiFi to your iPhone or iPad from most recent Macs and PCs.
- *Movie files*: in MP4, AVI, MOV, FLV, MPG, MKV, WMV and more formats
- *Music files* in MP3, AAC, FLAC, ALAC, M4A and more formats.
- *Photo files* in JPG, TIFF, PNG, GIF (RAW files are not supported)
You can *pause and seek* through the file on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad as though it were actually on your device.
**WiFi or Cellular**
Stream over 3G or 4G anywhere from your Mac/PC to your iPhone/iPod/iPad. You can watch your movies, listen to your music wherever you are. Use a dynamic DNS address to find your computer and *stream away*.
**WHAT YOU NEED**
*StreamToMe* runs on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad so long as you use iOS 3.1 or greater.
You also need the free *ServeToMe* program running on either an Intel Mac (OS X 10.5 or later) or a PC with Pentium4 or greater running XP SP2, Vista or Windows. A 1.8Ghz Core 2 Duo or faster is recommended. PowerPC Macs are not supported.
ServeToMe is a *free program* that StreamToMe users can download from http://zqueue.com/servetome
StreamToMe requires a continuous, direct connection between your Mac or PC and your iOS device. Network settings may affect the ability to connect.
StreamToMe is a transcoding server and may require significant CPU power to perform transcoding. To play movies in 720p or greater, a 2.4Ghz dual core CPU or better recommended. Pentium 4 and Atom CPUs are not recommended for the server.
Connecting from an external location (Cellular or non-local WiFi) requires UPnP/NAT-PMP or manual port forwarding on your router. Some configuration may be required (help at http://zqueue.com/streamtome/support).
StreamToMe/ServeToMe can stream authorized iTunes protected content by redirecting through the Safari app on your iOS device. StreamToMe/ServeToMe does NOT play back other DRM-protected audio or video formats.
What's New in Version 3.9.1
Fixes for problems playing playlists via AirPlay. Improvements for filename and sort key display in listings.
By far the best streaming media app!
Great update! The UI fixes make this great app even better!
Everything works flawlessly. Setup was a breeze. (Ignore the reviewers who cannot not setup the app properly. It's incredibly simple if you follow the short instructions)
The server app is straight forward and very easy to setup and configure. I was HD streaming in minutes. Video quality is excellent and it streams very well over 4G/LTE. Music streaming with iTunes playlist and metadata integration is one of the best features and sets this app far above the others.
One of the other very nice features is direct streaming without re-encoding. (unlike that other streaming app) This keeps the cpu load down, battery life up, and streams almost instantly. Adaptive bit rates based on network speed are also a big plus.
Thanks to this app, I no longer have to sync and store GBs of media on my phone.
Buy it. It will change the way you use media on your iDevice.
Horrible interface, unpredictable connectivity
Un-iOS like interface. Plus, half the time it can not find the streaming server, which it to, carries a weird (windows inspired, I can only assume) user interface.
