    My name is Nicholas and I am a brand new iPhone 5 user. Im coming off an older droid and boy am I glad I made the switch! So far I have no complaints with my i5. A little bit about me... I race motocross nationals and I travel a LOT to race. Now to my question...

    Ive done a fair amount of searching but I can't quite find what Im looking for. I want to be able to watch movies that I have on my computer at home on my iPhone when Im in a hotel. I decided to go with the 16gb instead of the 32gb because I wanted to buy a LifeProof case too and I couldn't afford both. SO.. space on my phone is a concern. Ive been experimenting with the cloud and I just got Photostream to work (WHICH IS AWESOME! But I wish I could use it over 4g rather than just wifi). I have quite a few videos/movies that Ive downloaded from places other that iTunes and I want to be able to watch those. I will have wifi at my hotel... is being able to watch movies that are stored on my computer on my phone possible via wifi?!?! Any help or ideas would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    if I understand, you want to watch your video stored on your macbook air on your iPhone ?
    Did you try DropBox ?

    Look up this app called AirVideo. Their server has an option for internet log in. You just have to make sure your MBA is on and the server is running.

    I believe Plex is more popular, but I am unsure if they have the internet log-in option.
