Streaming from External Drive to iPad
Does anybody know a way to access and play videos on an external drive or iMac hard drive wirelessly? I'm running a tutoring business and I need students to be able to watch tutorial videos on an iPad but:
1) I don't want to put them on the actual iPad because that limits how many videos I can put on, and,
2) I don't want to put them on the web because I don't want the videos to be distributed on the web
Thank you to anybody who can help me find an app or method for doing this.

theres a few solutions depending on what exactly you want, one that would work for any of them,but cost about €3 per ipad is PLEX.
PLEX is fantastic, and free on mac /pc but the ipad app costs i think €3. basically you can put all of your movies on a mac, run plex media server, and then the ipad app, or any other mac/pc can stream the movies, either over wifi or (using myplex) over the internet.
in a totally different direction, if you mean you want to carry your ipad to show students videos, you can buy cheaply now, portable hard drives with a wifi connection, amazon has lots of them, but it'd be cheaper using plex.
