1. Air Video. This does all my heavy lifting. Any video I have on my desktop computer or Drobo can easily be streamed and transcoded on the fly to my Apple TV via this little beauty. LOVE. IT.
2. Netflix. I watch on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV and love that I can easily just go from one to the other and come back right where I left off.
3. A bunch of TV network apps like CTV, CBC, CityTV and Global for when I miss recent shows.
Though I also like Hulu Plus, HBO GO & Cinemax, Sunday NFL Ticket, and the directv ipad app (but it doesn't work away from home). We don't have premium or nfl subscriptions for directv, but parents do. So i use their name & password for it.
I was using air video then I bought an external hard drive and put everything on it in iTunes. I'm considering going back to air video, or I should say, thanks for reminding me how easy it was. iTunes isnt very friendly right now.
I just found this thread and decided to try Air Video. What a great app. And I have to agree that it's a little more flexible and easier than streaming with iTunes, because of its converting on the fly capabilities. Thank for the heads up.
