Wondershare Launches Wireless Video Transfer for Apple, Android
By Tara Seals, TMCnet Contributor
The ability to port content around from device to device is a functionality that many have rolled out solutions for—from Apple AirPlay to Google’s Android (News - Alert) “casting” ability. But these are streaming solutions that require the devices sharing the content to be on the same network or in the same room. Looking to offer a different approach, Wondershare has issued an update to its video software that allows users to wirelessly transfer downloaded videos from computer to smartphone to take on the go.
Video Converter Ultimate (VCU) and AllMyTube (AMT (News - Alert)) now work with the free Wondershare Player App available for Apple and Android devices, without the requirement of side-loading.
Typically that kind of transfer requires the user to plug in the mobile device to a computer in order to sync up content—this is how Apple (News - Alert) devices natively interface with iTunes for downloaded content. Here, once a video is downloaded to either the VCU or AMT program, users can click the Wi-Fi transfer button within the program and it will bring up a QR code. The Wondershare Player App can then scan the code, to “grab” the video.
"The new wireless transfer feature makes using Video Converter Ultimate and AllMyTube even faster," said Summer Qin, marketing director for Wondershare. "You don't need to worry about searching around for the right cables anymore. Now you can easily enjoy your videos anywhere on your phone or tablet. Just scan and go."
The VCU and AMT software allows users to edit and enhance personal media, and convert it to almost any format (MP4, AVI, MPG and so on); convert 2D to 3D video, or convert media to DVD with no quality loss; download from YouTube and other video sites like Vevo and Vimeo (News - Alert) and more; play videos back; and now port content from PC to smartphone. Current users will receive the wireless upgrade instantly, the company said.
