- Some kind of control over the iPhone buffer size so it doesn't stop every 10sec on poor connections

This would indeed be a very useful function. Preferably a client setting, but a more general server setting that controls either the amount of data to buffer or the number of seconds, would work just as well.
It would definitely make this application unbeatable!

EDIT: Read somewhere that the buffer size is locked by the iPhone and can't be modified. If so, just ignore this post

I think what have been done deserves appreciation, and those requests doesn't mean the App is lacking, but rather we are seeking the optimal, amazing, unique App in App Store. So, here we go ...

Wish List:
1. Global setting for each Wifi and 3G when live encoding.
2. Simple mode and advance mode. In simple mode, you just click the video and the App will decide wether to do live encoding or just stream the ready-encoded video. When the device is connected through 3G, the App will always request live encoding with the global setting applied.
3. Portrait and landscape video play.
4. Auto-mount network drive in mac. Or, support for full network path; i.e. afp or smb://server/media/movies. Currently, if you restart your mac, none of the NAS folders content are available until you browse them in finder.
5. ACL user groups.
6. On-screen Numerical Keyboard if the password is numeric.
7. Option to sort video by date of modification or creation. If browsing satellite recorded video, you find the latest at the top.

1. The ability to play audio files.

2. The ability to password lock only certain files and folders. My fourteen year-old nephew and I are both using Air Video and I cannot put my large collection of violent horror movies on the server because I know he would get into them and watch them.

Hi Devs,

it would be nice to have an option for deactivating the menubar icon on OSX. You could integrate a shortcut e.g. ctrl+alt+cmd+a for still having access to the Air Video preferences.

Would it be possible to improve the server logging to show date & time of video play, and to show duration in timecode as in hours, minutes, seconds?

I notice that hewn a user views a converted file there is not trace in the logs

Be nice to see who is watching what when and for how long.

Great start.

When queing files for conversion (for offline playback), I'd like the ability to queue all items in a folder, rather than just one at a time.

Log page full. Discarding all subsequent entries!

That is in the log after monitoring for a while, any chance in increasing the logging ability to maybe longer or no limits?

If possible:

Be nice if one could have a favourites or auto history on the client side like one has in iphone safari browser, so quick access to previously uncompleted movies.

Be nice for large directories for alphabetical selection on the right of list, like they have in iphone contacts.

Be nice if server showed date & time stamp in logging

Be nice if logging went on for longer or unlimited

Be nice if logging actually logged use of encoded files, as notice sometimes one can view files with no trace in logs.

Be nice if it were possible to put multiple passwords on different directories so one can control content better, ie; differentiate adult from normal movies, or private from other? Makes it more family user friendly.

Yes, please! Without at least timestamps it's hard or impossible to correlate messages being logged during testing of Air Video while I'm not near the server computer to monitor for them.

It's frustrating not being able to easily determine which messages (if any) are related to problems I'm troubleshooting that might be useful to me and/or the developer.

Be nice if logging actually logged use of encoded files, as notice sometimes one can view files with no trace in logs.

A simple, fixed-format usage log with some basic usage statistics would be appreciated.

I love this a lot. Thanks.
Only one thing that I want to have in this.
I have so many tv dramas series and movies so that I opened it, I was confused what I saw last time.
I can see my status on regular ipod videos function like watched & unwatched status as small blue dot.
Please add this thing to easy navigation.

Thanks again.

If you drag the network drive from finder into your login items (system preferences -> accounts) and make sure it appears before Air Video Server in the list, then the drive will be mounted before air video starts and all should be sweet.

Search is a bit tricky - we would have to index the videos. Right now the "benefit" of not indexing it is that you can share entire drive without having to worry how much content you have there and how long will it take to index.


Hi: I am not sure I understand your point above, but just wanted to add myself to the "Please add a search capability!" brigade.
The full version allows access to all one's videos, GREAT;
but not having the ability quickly to search this library blunts this key selling point a bit, NOT SO GREAT (IMHO).

Otherwise, thank you for this really fine S/W
