Streaming Audio Video to iPhone 4S, No Sync, No Waiting

Play Different Audios/Videos on iPhone 4S

Since iPhone 4S' launch on October 2011, many people fell disappointed (including me) because the hope for a full-fledged and completely redesigned iPhone 5, let alone the absence of some rumored features - a bigger screen, NFC, and a tapered design.

But if you can watch videos in various formats on iPhone 4S, it is act worthy. However, this attempt may be obstructed by the following issues:

1.Incompatibility: iPhone 4S can play MP4, H.264, M4V and MOV directly without extra video conversion. But it is not compatible with the “outsider formats” like AVI, WMV, FLV, MPEG2, MKV, etc. So one has to change the formats of the incompatible videos to the compatible ones using some video converter.

2. Storage: Storage and memory have always been a major concern for iPhone 4 owners since the capacity is 16GB, 32GB or 64GB maximally. It takes much room to store a lot of videos on iPhone 4S. Also it is inconvenient if you execute file deletion every time once after finishing playing a video.

3. Sync: In order to transmit the videos from personal computer to iPhone 4S, one needs to use iTunes - the front end for Apple's QuickTime media player. That is to say, iPhone sync with iTunes on a Mac or Windows PC is required (except for iOS 5 though).

These factors listed above will surely consume time and cause inconvenience to users. But there is a solution called iPhone streaming, and also a corresponding trouble shooter called Air Playit.

How Does Air Playit Work:

Air Playit is a multimedia streaming application that helps all people live convert and stream videos and music to iPhone 4S from PC or Mac.

If video or audio files are included in the shared folder of the server, one can realize streaming audio video to iPhone 4S and play them immediately without waiting for conversion and sync at all.
