Using project free with my iPad????
Posted 06 October 2012 - 05:33 PM
Please someone guide me how to use this website with my iPad! It always seems to get to a certain point and then can't continue.
Skyfire, it's a browser that supports flash on IOS. I use it to watch here with my ipod when at work and I need to conceal my video watching. Not all links will work with it. Quality is often downsampled a bit. Note, just pay for the app, if you jailbreak and steal it you will get caught by the Skyfire team, you're not paying 1.99 for the app, you're paying for the realtime transcoding service. It basically goes to the site you pick (this one) and transcodes the video stream into a quicktime stream. So it converts a flash video site (like this one) to a slightly slower Quicktime streaming site. But sometimes there is an episode with only Gorillavid links, (they don't work for Skyfire or Opera) so for a show like Father Ted where nearly all of it is only on GorillaVid your best option is streaming to and then from your PC.
To stream to your Ipad from your PC/Mac/Whatever you can use an app like JumiGamer to connect to your PC from anywhere. It has a "streaming" button at the top that is perfect for streaming video or watching movies you have downloaded to your PC. Really easy to use, just install it on your PC and ipad and presto you can see whatever is on your PC on your ipod in realtime from anywhere. Only downside is a slight delay in the audio. Not too bad, I got used to it. It's how I play runescape and other non IOS games on my ipod. In a worst case scenario, you could use your Ipod to remote control your PC, then download the original video from the links provided here, to your PC, then play it on your PC and watch on your Ipad via Jumi. Ot in such a case you could use an app like airvideo to then stream the downloaded movie file directly from your PC to play on your IPad. A buddy of mine uses Airvideo all the time to watch shows like this. He uses Jumi to remote control his PC from work, then downloads the show he wants to watch. Then fires up airvideo on his Ipad and presto he's got a gorgeous streaming video. Airvideo is really easy to use and set up as well, it's main advantage being that unlike skyfire or Jumi it doesn't downsample anything, there is no quality loss, it's not slow and it plays any file I've thrown at it without a problem. You could also accomplish the same functionality with VLC for free, but it is MUCH harder to get working with your Ipad. Although it can be done and works quite well when it's all set up, the trick is getting VLC to stream out in a format the ipad can play then figuring out how to connect to your VLC at home when you are out or at work. Airvideo uses Bonjour to find your PC really fast. It will CONSUME your data plan though, eat it right up. I watched most of Red Dwarf via airvideo in just one day at work and its about 1:1 with the original data files, so if you watch a 1.4 gig movie file, you will likely use 1.4gig off your data plan, so if you get Airvideo, try to use it with Wifi.
Mostly I just use my Galaxy tab now for watching flash video on the go, Android is so much better than IOS for watching media because it just lets you do what you want without having to resort to crazy workarounds like these ones. All you want to do is watch a video like anybody else, but because you have an IOS device you must jump through 100s of flaming hoops before you are allowed to enjoy the vast majority of streaming media. Heck I have to convert every single video file I put on IOS to m4v, on android you just drag and drop and the movie just plays, no conversion, no special proprietary format.
