And we’re live

June 28th, 2010

The future is bright for the world of home video.  With the introduction of the iPad we now have the unprecedented ability to watch TV anywhere in our house without a cord attached.  The age of the “bedroom” TV is now over.  It is now possible to fire up your iPad and get your late night television fix that way.

Web Lite TV started out as a personal project because I have a couple of terabyte drives filled with video content in my iTunes library and I wanted a way to watch that video elsewhere in the house on my iPad.  Copying these files to my iPad was unfeasible and all of the existing offerings in the App store are missing support for DRM protected video files (i.e. any videos you purchase off of iTunes).  Since a large portion of my collection was purchased from iTunes, I needed a solution that would let me play these files also – and Web Lite TV was born.

We have decided to release it to the Mac community as free software, so enjoy.  The current version is still in beta so if you find bugs, please let us know.
