Looking for ways to stream video to my IPAD. Are there free or paid apps around that will do this easily or is it a must to setup client and server software. Never done anything like that before and new to the apple world. So I guess I am looking for the easy way out, if the can be accomplished.

AIR VIDEO! I swear by that app! I've been using it a ton and their iPad version was just approved about a day ago! It works great!

It is well worth the price ($2.99). They also have a free version you can test out to see if you like it... the free version only allows you to see 3 random videos in your folder.

This program is THE BOMB!!!

Air Video is just amazing to say the least setup went without a hitch and the streaming quality is great.
Thanks again for your help in suggesting a great Ipad app.

I've read accounts of good experience over the internet - even using 3G (obviously by an iPhone user)! I am blown away with the quality via local WiFi. I plan to go to my sister's house soon and try from her WiFi. I'll let you know how it works.

It will be interesting to see how you make out using it over the internet. Yes the local WiFi is without a doubt the best..

AV is awesome. I tried it yesterday and it works great over the Internet. Really impressed with this technology.

It worked great over the internet! It may have buffered a few secs longer but it was perfect. I even ran one video that was 1080p!

I wasn't able to get it to work over the internet. It does work well on my Wi-Fi, but even with a brand new router using either auto or manual mapping of the port I could not make it work over the internet. Hopefully they make that part work better in the future.
