With version 4.3 and up iMediaShare for iOS enables video and music playback from local network DLNA/UPnP media servers. Now through iMediaShare iOS app you can play a video or music track directly on your iPad without syncing or side-loading. Here are few simple steps to achieve that:
Step 1: Turn Windows 7 into Media Server
On your PC open Microsoft Windows Media Player (Start Button > All Programs >Microsoft Windows Media Player). Once started click on Stream menu and make sure that "Automatically allow devices to play my media..." is set to on.
Step 2: Tap on Local Network icon
On your iPad launch iMediaShare and tap on Local Network icon.
A list of available media servers will be filled on the left under "Servers". Make sure your PC's Windows Media Player is among them. You can distinguish it by the Windows Media Player icon and name you have given your PC during Windows 7 setup.
Step 3: Select Windows Media Player
Tap on your Windows 7 Media Player from the list from Step 2. The right pane will be populated with four folders - Music, Videos, Pictures, Playlists.
Step 4: Select Video or Music Track to Play on iPad
Navigate through Videos or Music folders as you do on your Windows 7. Sliding left will open more files (if any) from the folder you are in. The dots at the bottom will indicate how many screens with files are preloaded for you.
Step 5: Play Video/Music Track on iPad
Select the video or music track you want to play by tapping on it.
From the list with devices select My iDevice. The video or music track will start playing back on your iPad. To control the playback use the same gestures as described in How to Control Playback with Gestures.
Now enjoy your favorite media wherever you are in the house!
