Review: Stream video, music, etc. from desktop to iOS with StreamToMe for Mac

Stream your favorite media files over Wi-Fi or 3G, quickly and conveniently, using this easy-to-use application.

StreamToMe for Mac allows you to stream media from your desktop to iOS devices using Wi-Fi or a 3G connection, without the need to convert files. The app's features and performance are top notch, making it an excellent option for high-quality media streaming for any occasion.

StreamToMe for Mac comes with a sleek interface that displays local servers and devices on the right side of the screen and a fully-functional media player on the left. There is an additional option to manually input an IP address for streaming, if you wish. To detect devices for streaming we had to download the companion server ServeToMe and install it on our test Mac. Installing an iOS version of the app on a mobile device is also necessary in order to stream to an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. Enabled devices appear under local servers in the main program interface. With just a click on the enabled device we were able to select -- or search for -- the music we wanted to stream. Playback started right away and available album artwork was displayed in a large preview screen. When trying to play videos and view photos, playback was just as smooth. Additionally, we really appreciated a full-screen option for viewing, available in the playback window and from the app's menu bar. Apart from the basic playback functions, the menu bar also offered a link to a Help file.

StreamToMe for Mac performs exceptionally well and is a great solution for anyone looking to stream their media files over Wi-Fi or 3G to a mobile device. It's lightweight and has plenty of features, and the playback quality won't disappoint you.
