As ZumoCast has vanished from App Store for some reason, it seems that we have to turn to the paid app Air Video for streaming videos. Luckily, today a found an excellent replacement of ZumoCast which has been put on App Store just couple of days, it’s called Air Playit. This app is free, worth keeping.
It contains two parts: a server on PC/Mac and the client on iDevices. Users can stream videos to iPhone iPad iPod touch from PC/Mac hard drive via Wi-Fi, 3G even 4G. (The quality is as good as with ZumoCast, if not better.)
Download the server and client from:
Then run Air Playit on iPhone iPad or iPod touch, it will automatically search the server via Wi-Fi or 3G. Then add the server to your server list on iDevices. Click it and you’ll see all your shared files. Now you can play any video/audio as you like. Easy!
Personal experience: watch Avatar on iPhone 4
video: 1280 Kbit/s
audio: 256 Kbit/s
It’s very smooth and clear.
