I am currently running the latest version of the Desktop server of Air Video HD on a Windows 8, 64bit, 24GB RAM, GTX660 1.5GB, with the latest VLC installed.
I am running the latest version of Air Video HD on an iPad running iOS 6.1.2.
Before I get any further, I was also receiving the error message below, but as soon as I installed VLC, i didn't receive it anymore. Just a thought for those that are still having issues and have not tried installing VLC.
air video hd gstreamer encountered a general stream error
My problem is that there is a lot of lag, degraded video playback. With the old Air Video app. I tried messing with the options, enabling the "No Bitrate Limit", raising others to the 1500 range but still no luck. It'll play in HD for a while, then it starts getting quite choppy.
With the old Air Video, I did not have this problem. The Global Settings in the old Air Video were as follows:
Max Width - 800px
Max Height - 720px
Quality for offline Conversion
Allow H.264 Video Passthrough
Allowed Bitrates for Live Conversion
Local WiFi - 2048 kbit/s
Remote WiFi - 1536 & 2048 kbit/s
3G - 1536 kbit/s
I tried to enable the same settings through the new Air Video but so far I've had no luck. The only setting I see missing from the Air Video HD on the iPad is the: Allow H.264 Video Passthrough
I dont care how much LTE data I use, can you suggest the best settings for the best quality over 3G/4G/LTE connection?
