I also use plex. Though I use it mostly with a mac mini, the ability to share the same repository with many clients and have rich metadata on all of them is great.

I was in Copenhagen a couple of months ago and being able to stream from home in Virginia was fantastic. There were some occasional buffering hiccups but that was probably due to the hotel's internet connection more than anything. Streaming to the ipad when travelling has generally worked quite well.

I am using Plex as well, the server end is free but you have to pay for the iOS app. If you have a Roku there is a Plex channel for that as well

Question: can someone explain the difference between Plex and Air Video? I have ripped all my workout DVDs to my computer and use Air Video to stream them onto my iPad for use during my workout (there are too many to copy over onto the iPad itself). It works great but of course I have to be at home to use it. I *think* from what I read that I could use Plex remotely somehow? In other words, that if I am not at home, I can still stream my video? If so, that would be great. If not and I have misunderstood, what is the difference? Is Plex better than Air Video in some other way?

You can use plex remotely (outside your wifi network at home) to stream your media. I think you can do that with airvideo also but it may take some manual router configuration to make it work.

But, plex's real advantage is the metadata details you get for your videos. Movies and tv shows are matched against internet databases by the plex media server. And, if you have home videos or more obscure unmatched commercial videos, you can enter the details yourself.

Plex also keeps track of watched/unwatched status and where you are in a tv series.
