Air Video HD is the ultimate streaming video player for all videos stored on your computer. If want to watch them on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple TV, this is the app for you.

Download and install the server software on your Mac or PC (Linux coming soon) and you’ll be watching your videos on your device in seconds. Going somewhere without network access? Download is just one tap away.

Don’t worry about video formats, codecs and bitrates, let Air Video HD handle the dirty details for you. If needed, Air Video HD will transparently transcode the video (“on fly”) so that it plays on all supported iOS devices, including Apple TV (with surround sound and soft subtitles). But we took special care to ensure that transcoding is only done when necessary. No matter what format the video is in, AVI, DivX, MKV and other videos just work.

Major Features in Air Video HD 2.0

* Beautiful user interface optimized for iOS 8. With special support for iPhone 6 and 6+, we make sure your valuable screen space is not wasted

* State of the art playback pipeline. We take our transcoding seriously. Support for soft subtitles, H.264 passthrough for your HD videos and surround sound on Apple TV will let you enjoy your media the way it is supposed to be.

* Video Download. Going somewhere without internet access? Air Video HD is the easiest way to get your videos to device. Simply browse to your video and press download. That's it. With one slider you decide if you want to prioritize video quality or save space on device.

* Synchronized settings. You can stop video on you iPhone and resume on your iPad. Playback settings (including subtitle and audio selection), history and many other are synchronized as well.

* History. Quickly navigate between previously visited folders and played files. See which videos have already been played and which are new. Did we mention that history can be synchronized across all your devices?

* Audio and Subtitle synchronization adjustment (2.0). Your subtitles being out-of-sync is no longer a problem, you can correct it in just few taps.

* Video playback speed control (2.0). In a hurry? Speed it up!

* Aspect ratio control (2.0). Now you can finally correct those those weird looking videos. Also works when playing Apple TV of course!

* Many other features waiting for you to explore

Absolutely awesome app!

Air Video HD is one of the most indefensible iOS apps that I would rate a simply "must have". The reason for that is that iOS devices are notoriously fussy for the format of the file your video file must be in for it to play properly but we do not live in an Apple world! Files come from a variety of sources and devices and it can be frustrating when you can't play them. With Air Video Had you don't have to ever convert another file to make it compatible. Your Mac or PC does that in the background on the fly in response to you requesting to watch a video on your iPad. And it's not hard to set up too. The app may not be free but neither is it expensive, and when you see what it can do in conjunction with the server software which is free, I believe it is worth every red cent! This is one app I do not begrudge the app developers their fee, and nor will you. I don't believe there is anything quite like Air Video HD out there. The quality and ease of use will amaze you! Highly recommended.

Simply excellent

This app not only streams movies of any format to your phone, you can tell your PC to convert movies to itunes compatible format from your phone, and then even download them and store movies on your phone, all controlled from the phone. the server software lets you pick any folders on your Mac or pc, and the phone will then be able to play any movies in them. I have never had any issues. with other apps I have always ran into issues with either no video or no sound, but this app has played everything perfectly.

Go get it! You won't regret it! Promise

As far as I'm concerned this has it all, easy streaming to iPad or iPhone offline mode and with my smart TVs I can then stream from iPad to tv in full quality. Easy download and conversion and haven't found a video it won't play. It's the ONLY APP I use for video content on my iPhone and iPads and can easily be running 4 devices plus off my Mac mini no sweat
