Watching videos through Air Video sever on your iPhone/iPad/iPod is almost as simple as using Apple’s videos app. Not all videos can be played on your iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone with Air video, like those movies purchased from the iTunes store which are DRM-protected files.
Also the Air Video app will open your computer files up to anybody with the app on your local network, so don’t open access to anything private when adding your media folders or playlist to Air Video. Alternatively you can turn on the optional access password in the app.
