    Hi!
    I'm thinking about getting an iPad 2, and I've heard that you can now play files from Computer to iPad using Airplay, is this correct? If so, I have a few questions:

    - Is it limited to iTunes purchase only? I've encoded alot of my DVDs to mp4 format, so i'm hoping I can play them without them filling the iPad up.
    - Do Videos show up in the Video interface with album art and such?

    Thanks. :)

    AirVideo is the best. It will encode files on the fly.

    Yeah AirVideo is a good call. AirPlay actually goes the opposite direction to what you want - it streams audio and video from the iPad to an Apple TV, not even to your PC.
