I love how air video's server is constinently being improved. I would love a feature in the server where it detects for updates periodically and it notifies you if a new update is available for download. And then you can click a button if you want to upgrade. Would be nice even for beta releases too, as I like to upgrade to beta.
This would be a definite plus.

It would be nice if the server could do live conversions of internet video streams. e.g., converting a windows media (MMS:// url) stream for viewing on iphone.

Thank you very much for the great app.

I second this request. There has yet to be a good implementation of this in the App store. The closest thing I could find was ZottD's Streamer app. But the implementation is VERY Poor.

I understand that this is not the purpose of this app. And implementation of this feature would probably not be ideal. Maybe inmethod can work on a separate app for this feature.

we are aware of that problem and plan to fix it in next update. Although I'm really not sure why you had to reboot your box. Restarting Air Video Server didn't help?

So basically, my WIN XP SP3 computer was running the AirVideoServer-Setup210a1. One of your developers emailed me to test files with Unicode filenames. I had the server running for about 8 days straight and my computer started to have low resource issues. I couldn't open simple things like command prompt. I checked my task manager and saw that Air Video Server had memory usage had ballooned up around 228MBs. I killed the Air Video Server process and I still had issues running CMD. When I checked the event viewer i saw the following error message:

"Application popup: cmd.exe - Application Error : The application
failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142). Click on OK to terminate
the application.
For more information, see Help and Support Center at

After a reboot. The problem went away. This computer has been very stable and I never had an issue like this prior to installing your server. But I will admit that I have been running 2 new apps recently. A new version of WM Recorder and the new IMGBurn. I've worked with past versions of WM Recorder and have never had resource issues. Meaning I've run past versions of WM Recorder for months at a time and never had any memory leak issues. I know that this does not mean that the new version will suffer from a memory leak. And as for IMGBurn, I will admit is new to me. So what I'm going to do is run my box without Air Video Server for about 10 days. And have WM Recorder running and burn a lot of discs with IMGBurn (I have a lot to backup so that won't be a problem.) After 10 days if I don't see any problems then I will reboot my computer and then run Air Video Server for another 10 days. And see if there are problems. If there is a problem, I will report it back to you. If there isn't any issues, I will just assume my memory problem was a freak occurrence. In any case I will keep you guys posted.
Streaming over 3g works for me as well. I do have to turn down the resolution all the way and then set the quality around 50-75%... and I still get rebuffers once in a while, but it's definitely watchable. I think the problem is with 3G's bandwidth because even when I use Fstream to stream 128kps radio station I get frequent rebuffers over 3G.
Works great. I hope the next release will start storing thumbnails on the hard drive. I currently have 5000 video files and having so many thumbnails in memory has caused problems for me. To the point where I have to reboot my box.
