I am aware of spam in forum and not very happy about it. I am trying to deal with it over time, IP.Board spam filter doesn't seem to work very well

Perhaps you might consider using a couple of moderators to handle the obvious spam. It would save you policing the forums and diverting your time resources to managing this irritation. I would also suggest using a system like ZBBlock to trap automated posting systems like Xrumer and Forum Poster 3: it can also block IP addresses by country and mitigate against people trying to use SQL injection attacks and the like. Several IP Board forums I used to run were inundated with probes and scans from various bad agents, particularly China, until I started using ZBB. 


I would also suggest imposing restrictions on first-time posters, something that be easily implemented in IPB. For example, restricting a first-time user to having their first few posts moderated. 


I generally found that while IP Board's inbuilt systems could handle a certain kind of abuse, other measures were needed upstream to deal with the other idiots.

There indeed hasn’t been new features added to Air Video in a while, that doesn’t however mean it’s not supported (Apple TV app was updated week after tvOS beta to restored compatibility). The main reason is that I spend most of my time lately trying to get Airflow released. as cosmoxi pointed out. The reason is that nowadays having mobile app only is very problematic when it comes to sustainability. Once done, I plan to leverage much of the work that went into Airflow in Air Video Server HD, such as multiprocess architecture (greatly improves server stability, transcoding memory usage and even security, i.e. http server can be completely separated process with strict sandboxing), and improved transcoding pipeline (i.e. very fast scrubbing preview that works with native Apple TV player).

Thanks for getting in touch with us! Can't wait to see Air Video HD updated. Still dreaming about a native macOS app too :D

Awesome! I use AV HD almost everyday both on AppleTv and iPhone and it's great! Once you start having time to put into developing more stuff for it we'll be here supporting you!

I had a look at the Airflow Facebook page but I really am not sure what the app does.  Could someone explain what it is?
