Phenomenal. Works like a dream
It is so rare that you get an app like Air Video HD. Not only does it work perfectly as advertised without any fiddling or tweaking, but I was pleased to discover the wealth of encoding settings that are available to the user beyond just the simple streaming function. Air Video HD smartly utilizes VLC media player for encoding- one of the most functional and fully compatible pieces of software ever written. In no time at all, I was able to set up the home server to gain access to my personal storage of over 200 GB of videos- mostly eLearning courses on web development, programming, game design, and 3D Animation from sites like Udemy and Lynda. Now, I have all of these videos ready to stream on-the-go. The server response time is BLAZING FAST! I was so surprised at the quality of service. No hangups when navigating large folders of content, it streams source videos in crispy HD just like it would be at home, and there is no stuttering or buffering during playback.
For your review purposes, my experience is on an iPhone 6S using T-Mobile's LTE network. What that tells me is that Air Video's service is very well streamlined. It is using my carriers capabilities to the fullest, so if you experience slow or choppy playback, it is most likely your cellular network to blame!
Best app for viewing your collection on the go.
I've owned the older version of this app so I can say for sure they know how to keep the best parts and just keep upgrading from there. This version has a nicer interface and the playback ui is very simple and easy to interact with. I especially like the 30sec skip back and forward buttons(though i wish i could change that to 10secs) scrubbing is a nice upgrade from the older version. downloading files for faster viewing has always been a plus. and streaming over 4g/wifi hasn't shown me any problems. i love the multiuser mode so i can restrict certain folders for certain people(ie pg rated content for the younger friends/family). the server software is easy to set up and i got streaming in less than a minute. this app is worth the price if you want to view your vids on the go.
I've been a user of this App from the beginning. I purchased the original Air Video app then the Air Video HD. I loved this app at first, but as my library grew over the years the app hasn't kept up.
For starters, and this is by far the biggest let down, still after all these years no metadata artwork or information. I spend all this time adding artwork, descriptions, actor information to my library, but the app doesn't display any of it, not even artwork. The developer said he was working it, but that was a few years ago and still nothing. Frankly, it's inexcusable that artwork is not displayed. Instead you get an ugly, random, scene pic as the poster.
I can go on about the lack of What's New, or Continue Watching features after all this time. This app was a leader in streaming your home movies, but like I already said the app just hasn't kept up and now when I compare it to Plex it's simply disappointing and has fallen way behind the competition.
