Share iTunes library with remote iOS device via VPN
Authored by: vsilves on Sep 15, '12 10:24:17AM

After trying several video and/or file sharing apps that I did not like I finally moved away from pure iTunes shared libraries in Mac OS and the Videos app in iOS.

My newfound jewel is the ServeToMe (free for Mac OS) and StreamToMe (paid on iOS) combo. It works "exactly" as it should. I can add a bunch of folders to ServeToMe and they are served immediately to my iOS, transcoding if necessary. When I reorganize or add media to my TimeCapsule volume I don't need to re-import into iTunes. And, I can use my folder and subfolder structure for organization (Movies, TV, Demos, etc) and StreamToMe on iOS will immediately see new stuff. Unlike the Videos app, StreamToMe shows full folder and video file long names. ServeToMe can share your iTunes library too! Works on local Wifi or over VPN. And, is clearly minimalistic and not bloated.

Priceless!
