Review: Air Video Server HD for Mac streams videos from your computer to iOS

Stream videos from your Mac to your Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch without the need to convert using Air Video Server HD for Mac.

Air Video Server HD for Mac makes it easy for you to watch your favorite videos streamed from your Mac computer on an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or Apple TV. This fantastic application installed quickly on our test Mac and detected and played videos on our iOS devices without any delays or errors.

If you have videos on your Mac computer, then you know how hard it can be to share and view them on your other devices such as iPhone and iPad. Air Video Server HD for Mac streamlines this process by eliminating lengthy conversion and file transfer processes, all from an intuitive, clean interface where you can explore available videos and stream them over Wi-Fi. In addition to saving you valuable hard drive space on your iOS devices, an added advantage of Air Video Server HD over other similar applications is its ability to play a variety of formats, such as AVI, DiVX, and MKV (to name a few), making it an extremely capable video player. Additionally, you can choose to download videos over Wi-Fi, which is great when you're on the go. Video playback in the iOS application, Air Video HD, is seamless. We tested a 400MB MP4 television episode; the file loaded within three minutes and the playback quality was excellent. We really liked that the fullscreen viewing options did not impair playback and that the file retained its original clarity.

If you have a lot of videos and are looking for a manageable way to share them between your computer and iOS-equipped devices, then you should look no further than Air Video Server HD for Mac.
