Emit Brings Air Video Functionality to Android
Are you an Android user who has been left feeling a tiny bit jealous of the Air Video app available to iDevice users that let them watch their entire media libraries on the go? Fear not, as a similar utility can now be obtained (for free) for your favorite little green robot.
Thanks to XDA forum member zokipirlo, we now have a wonderful application aimed at replicating much of the Air Video functionality for use with Android. In the words of the developer:
Watch videos live from your PC/Mac/Linux on android. Download music from iTunes.
Emit allows you to stream videos from PC/Mac/Linux directly to an android device.
– Live encoding and streaming directly to your device. No need to wait for your video to encode entirely.
– .srt subtitles
– mkv subtitles
– Pre encoding videos and download them to the device for offline viewing.
– Download music from iTunes. Songs will be saved to: SD_Card/Emit/Music/Artist/Album/Song.mp3

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
