    Hello,
    I just was able to install VLC on my Ubuntu 11.10. I could play video locally using VLC but could someone please explain me in a nutshell how to stream it to my iPad?
    The whole idea behind it was not to play it on my PC but stream it to iPad. Therefore I've bought VLC Streamer. It looks that I succeeded to install it on linux but just don't know how to use it :)
    Thanks

    Search the app store for VLC Streamer. That should link your iPad to your computer.

    Well. Finally I was able to stream video from PC to iPad.
    But now I have another issue I.e. I have video but don't have audio.
    The same movie plays fine audio locally on PC but when it's streaming it does not stream audio.
    Could anyone help with that?
    Thanks

    For MY information: He wants to stream from Ubuntu to his *IPAD.* Is there a forum specifically for that? If not, what forum SHOULD he use?
    Thanks.

    Sorry guys if I put my thread in a wrong Place.
    My point was that I was looking for some who uses VLC with Linux because based on experience it does not work properly on Linux with iPad
    Actually I expected to get real help from VLC site but here wanted just get some input if some has one :)

    The thread is OK where it is. I have used VLC for years (Windows version) and would be curious to see how this would work. VLC has enough going on under the hood that it should be possible. I'll do some playing around and see if I can figure it out.

    It works for me on Windows as well.
    On Linux it works only while it's streaming . After that it does not work
