I have a computer on my network set up with a web server (apache) sharing a folder or videos (mp4, mkv) to the local network. I'd like to be able to stream those videos to my iPad (jailbroken if that helps). I've tried using VLC for iOS and can't get it to work. It has an option for network but when it's actually looking for ftp not http. I suppose I could set up an ftp server on my computer but I'd like to avoid it if possible.
Any other solutions?
Also, I know VLC for iOS can handle mkv but I don't believe native iOS can handle it.
