View Full Version : Airplay and wifi vs wired
March 27th, 2012, 12:57 PM
When you use airplay from the iPad, does the boxee box use its own internet connection to get the same content on its own, or does it use the iPad's connection to stream the content? My boxee box is connected to wired internet, so if it's the latter, it seems like I'd always get a better connection (and therefore better video quality) from just manually using the boxee box instead of airplay.

AirPlay will shoot the video from the iPads wireless > boxee. Quality will be the same as what's on your iPad.
There is another button that will open the video file itself on the boxee though. This will just tell boxee in the iPad boxee app where the video your playing is located, then load that on the boxee itself. That's not the common airplay icon you'll see in YouTube and safari and such though.
So AirPlay = iPad wifi > boxee. (think its actually iPad > router > boxee)

What's that other button? Is that just adding the video to my "watch later" list?
