Boxee for iPad Released: Converts Videos and Streams via AirPlay

by on August 9th, 2011

Boxee has just released their free iPad app, and it’s awesome. You can steam content from your Mac/PC to your iPad and it’ll even convert videos over the air. The best part? AirPlay works perfectly so you can watch all your content on your Apple TV.

SOCIAL
Never miss a hilarious or inspiring new video from your friends again. Boxee connects to your social life and delivers every video your friends share on Facebook, Twitter, Buzz, and Tumblr to your iPad. Return the favor and share favorites with two taps. Boxee brings video sharing to the iPad in a way that’s simple and unique.

WATCH LATER
Each day, we’re bombarded by video from everywhere. Collect them in one place and save them for later with Boxee. Queue YouTube videos, TED talks, and, well, whatever you want to watch on your iPad, whenever you want. Your commute just got its own video playlist.

MEDIA STREAMING
Stop wasting hours converting and syncing videos to your iPad. Boxee streams videos, music, and photos from your PC/Mac to your iPad over WiFi. You pick the video, we handle the rest — no cables or wires necessary.

SEND TO BOXEE BOX
Watching video on your iPad and want it on the big screen? Send videos straight to your TV via a Boxee Box so everyone in your living room can enjoy. Now you can go back to playing Angry Birds on the iPad while you watch :)

How to stream videos from your Mac/PC to the iPad? You’ll need to download and install the Boxee Media Manager first. Setup is pretty straight forward as your Mac will show up within Boxee if you’re on the same network.

My test DivX videos converted perfectly and looked great on the iPad. AirPlay functionality was excellent and this new app has made my Apple TV even better. Boxee has Air Video functionality, but is completely free.

    Yup. I started watching a video, then tapped the AirPlay icon and it went right to my Apple TV 2.

    Gary – is your ATV running Boxee, or just the regular Apple OS software?

    Has problems hooking up to windows. I had to cold reboot both my computer and iPad several times to get a connect. Once connected works great. No subtitles available. Boxee says they are coming.
