Air Playit Streams Video From PC to iPhone/iPad/iPod

Have you ever imagined that you can access your video library stored on your home computer immediately wherever you go? Air Playit can help you achieve that. No matter you are sitting at the coffee bar or waiting for your flight at the airport, you can watch your videos over WiFi, 3G or 4G network without waiting.

Air Playit is a video streaming software designed to stream video and audio from your home computer to Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch with support for Google Android OS mobile devices coming soon. Acting as your personal audio video cloud server, Air Playit is capable of streaming 320 different video and audio formats to your mobile devices via WiFi and 3G/4G network.


Streaming videos to mobile devices, particularly a platform as restrictive as the iPhone OS, is not easy as these devices have limited support for audio/video file formats. With Air Playit this is not as issue.

Say for example, you have a video in MKV file format. Your iPhone doesn’t reorganize it. To put this MKV video on your iPhone, you need a video converter to convert it to iPhone friendly format first. Then, sync the converted video to your device via iTunes.

With Air Playit, you will not need video converter any more. Instead of doing the tedious video converting, syncing the videos to your iPhone and filling up your limited memory, Air Playit leverages the ffmpeg library to let you convert and stream those videos on the fly. That is to say, wherever this is network, you can get your device connected with the video library on your home computer instantly.
