    Which is better? AirVideo seems to be more popular that's for sure.

    Which one offers better quality streams? Less load on my Mac? Less buffering time?

    i have both, quality seems the same, what makes streamToMe better is that you can shuffle the files, also it supports photos, air video does not

    Air video "just works" specially over 3g or remote wifi if you plan to use it away from home. Plex is also worth checking out. Never really bothered with streamtome. Maybe the ugly ui ad something to do with it.

    I just wished Air Video would update to support the new retina display of the iPad 3. StreamToMe looks tempting..

    For ease of use, I did prefer AirVideo over StreamtoMe, but.....I use something else.

    With a bit of html styling I have a great library app with Abyss Webserver, linking to the directories where the the videos are kept.

    Works a treat with idevices, very very small footprint on the desktop computers, and you just use Safari.
