This seems to have gotten little notice here on MacRumors (or anywhere else for that matter), but it is possible to use Mac OS X's built-in Web Sharing feature to stream iTunes videos to the iPad. In fact, this even works for DRM-protected content so you can stream movies and music videos that you may have purchased from the iTunes Store. The process is very simple and it seems to work flawlessly -- even on my lowly G4 Mac mini running Leopard. To give credit, here is the first mention of this capability that I found within the MacRumors forums: http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=9589251&postcount=12 However, a step-by-step guide on setting this up was just published today on MacObserver, and here is a link to that article (I'd suggest using this article on MacObserver, since the original note on MacRumors didn't fully explain how to enable the streaming -- it's very simple, but hey, it's nice to have the step-by-step directions): http://www.macobserver.com/tmo/answers/stream_videos_and_music_from_your_mac_to_your_iphone_or_ipad/ Frankly, this is probably the best tip I've yet seen for the iPad. I had struggled to find just such a solution using one of the various streaming apps that are available for sale on the App Store but none of those worked to my satisfaction (they have nice GUIs, but their streaming performance was less than ideal). I tried both AirVideo and StreamToMe -- I prefer the latter of the two -- but this simple and completely free solution using Mac OS X's Web Sharing works perfectly (in my hands). A couple of notes: 1.) This method is completely free and uses capabilities that are native to both Mac OS X and the iPad (i.e. no hacks, no extra software to install or buy). 2.) You view the video in Safari on the iPad, but you get the full movie player experience with full-screen mode, zoom, volume and position controls, the works. 3.) The iPad's video out is supported, so you can use Apple's component video cable to view the video on a big screen or HD TV (DRM-protected content can't be viewed over the video output). 4.) Even though the video is viewed with Safari, you can create a bookmark or even a home screen icon to launch you right into the directory/folders view so that you can play the video with just two taps (one to launch the bookmark/Safari, one to play or select the video). 5.) It works on HD video or any other format as long as it is iTunes/iPad compatible (i.e. no support for MKVs, VOBs, etc.). 6.) For some reason, music streaming only seems to work for MP3s. There may be a way around this, but I haven't done enough work to find out how. In any case, I'm not certain why you'd use this method to stream music since with this basic setup there is no way to use a playlist or listen to music in a continuous manner (i.e. you'd have to pick the music one at a time). 7.) The CPU overhead on the serving Mac is extremely low. In fact, using my G4 Mac mini I was able to stream an HD movie to my iPad while I was also streaming a movie to my Apple TV and the Mac mini was still 90% idle. 8.) You can use this technique to view PDFs and text and image files on your iPad (RTF, TXT, JPEG, PNG, possibly others). Thus, you can setup a shared documents folder on your Mac and view same on your iPad.
