Space is always at a premium on your device. When it comes to carrying your entire photo, video or music library in your hands, it's not likely you're going to fit it all in addition to the apps and other stuff already located there. Air Media Center makes it easy to have your media library at hand with seamless play, no glitches, buffering or grainy images. What's different about Air Media Center? Well, it codes your music, video and photos without any help needed from you! No need to sit through aggravating file conversions, especially because the supports so many file formats. Some of the excellent portability features of this media files streaming app are as follows:

• Retina display optimized video and photo streaming
• Specially designed with AirPlay in mind
• Works with all official TV adapters
• Uses the latest SL/Lion+Windows 7 security model
• Authenticate using your Mac or PC user accounts
• Hide files or folders using file system permissions
• Play videos, music, photos of any form or shape
• Provides instant live transcoding if needed
• Folder, iTunes playlist and iPhoto album sharing
• Compatible with universal dock + remote
• Enable access over the Internet using Air Media Server: http://www.airmediacenter.com/downloads/pc/AirMediaServer-1.0.11.msi

Take a look at all these supported files/formats:
AVI, DIVX, XVID, MKV, MP4, M4V, MOV, MPG, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, EyeTV MPEG2, MPEG-4, ASF, WMV, WMA, WAV, MP3, 3GP, OGG, FLAC, MPEG audio, ADTS AAC audio, Real Audio and Video, Macromedia Flash (Only embedded audio is decoded), FLV (Macromedia Flash video files), DVR-MS, WTV, CDR, ISO

To explain a bit better, Air Media Center is composed of two different applications: Air Media Center, the app that you install on your iOS device, and Air Media Server, the server application that you install on your computer. After installing and launching both programs, you can then browse and select media from your computer by using your Air Media Center app.

The amount of space this app could save on your phone is phenomenal. Get the free server application to your Mac or PC from the Air Dynamic website here . This file sharing app makes it so easy to stream your special media collection from your computer to your iPhone or iPad. What I like best about it though is that it lets you index and search photos on your computer. Select alphabetical indexing, indexing by date, or even ascending and descending lists. For my large photo collection, this is ideal. I really don't want to waste room on my phone having photos physically reside there. Just tap to enlarge photos, flip or scroll through thumbnails to view. For other folks, being able to access their huge video files is another space saving wonder. Just tap on a movie to play. Oh, and get this cool music feature - you can use AirPlay from your iOS device to your Mac running AirServer, or to your Apple TV! Lots of goodies indeed on this media streaming app!
COOL CONCLUSION: "Air Media Center provides the ultimate in media center portability when it comes to streaming your favorite photo, video or music files."
