Seems shortsighted to install BETA versions of iOS or OS X on devices/systems running "essential" apps before they're updated/supported (if necessary). Of course developers want to know about and fix beta-related issues, but it's reasonable if updates are delayed to ensure compatibility with official public OS releases.
Which conversion software (and version of it) are you using?

Might get noticed more if posted to one of the previous topics specifically discussing this issue.
iTunes and iOS devices don't support MKV format files.
Which version of Air Video Server are you running?

You can test with the free version before getting the paid version.

I really don't know what the current mainstream demand and expectation is for higher quality apps in the Android market (or iOS market, for that matter). Stats seem to imply that with Android more people are willing to settle for inferior apps that are free than would pay for superior alternatives.

Surely developers will have to start making these apps for android as their market share is hudge and increasing over apple. These android users will find an android app that does the job and then when developers like the ones making air video finally get there app out it will be too late to catch back up market share.

Regardless of market share I think the odds are still higher for developing successful paid iOS apps. But maybe Android developers with enough incentive and resources are increasingly willing and able to take and overcome the risk (actual and perceived).

And multi-platform development/support challenges can be a significant factor. Especially smaller developers like InMethod surely have valid reasons to remain focused on improving existing products rather than venture into new markets. The complexities of growing a business isn't something everyone want to undertake; comfortably sustaining what's successful can be more desirable.

Just my 2cents......

Mine, too.

But not the strategy I would've taking give current trends.

We're only speculating about developer strategies here, of course.

Because Android users are cheapskates compared to iOS users?

Statistics claim that iOS is generally more financially lucrative for developers than Android, e.g. from Who’s Winning, iOS or Android? All the Numbers, All in One Place | TIME.com:

Who’s making money from app downloads?

According to Canalys’s data for the first quarter of this year, iOS users are spending much more on apps even if they’re downloading fewer of them overall.

Which OS and version?
Short answer: no.

Did you overlook the search link in every page header?

Whether or not anyone thinks it's "cheap crap", I had no trouble with Air Video streaming to my iPhone 3GS and iPad 2 using a WRT54GS router (Tomato firmware) directly connected to the server system.
Which OS and version is the server running on?
hein wrote:(I have too many useless icons in my menu bar as it is).

Recommended shareware utility I use to generally help with that issue:

Bartender | Mac Menu Bar Item Control

Once you have configured Air Server it just runs, so there is really not much need to use the menu icon.

The icon could be made more useful by displaying a non-zero number of connected clients.

I would prefer to have the preferences available from the System Preferences Other section.

I wouldn't mind Air Video Server being a Preference Pane for configuring/managing it.

Regardless, I'd also like the server to auto-restart (maybe as an option) after crashing.
ducky wrote:Any chance I can get version 2.4.3?

Ahh, links on the Air Video Server Downloads page were changed to the beta versions. This direct link currently works:

For which OS(es)? When a topic like this one covers multiple platforms mentioning any platform-specific details that may not be obvious can be helpful to readers. Thanks!
