Have you got a new iPad now? How to make full use of this stunning device to bring you more fun? In addition to playing games and surfing the internet, watching movies on its Retina display at 2048 x 1536 pixels is a good idea. Ever thought of getting more movies to your new iPad 3 not only those in your iTunes library? Here we offer you some tips of how to use home sharing on your new iPad 3 in order to stream movies, music from multiple computers for playing.
Before iOS 4.3, Home Sharing was only for PCs, but now you can share any computer's iTunes library with your new iPad, iPhone 4S, or iPod Touch 4 over your Wi-Fi network. This allows you to access more music, movies, or podcasts from multiple computers without burdening your device's storage. Once you set up your Home Sharing account on your computers and devices, sharing is easy. Here's how to do it:
A: Set up your Home Sharing account 1. Download and run iTunes 10.6 on your computer. 2. Go to the "Advanced" menu, select "Turn on Home Sharing". 3. Enter your Apple ID credentials. 4. Now you'll need to do the same on your new iPad 3. Go to "Settings," "iPod," and enter the same Apple ID credentials. If you want to access a computer with a different Apple ID association, you'll have to enter that one instead. Note: iTunes limits users to five computers per Home Sharing account, so if you've reached your limit (as Apple will tell you), deauthorize one of the computers. To do so, go to iTunes, head to the "Store" menu, and then "Deauthorize this computer."
B: Home Sharing on the new iPad 3 5. Make sure your new iPad and computer are on the same Wi-Fi network. 6. After that, go into the iPod app itself and then tap the "More" tab on the bottom. There will be a house icon toward the bottom of the list that says "Shared" next to it. 7. When you tap on Shared, the app will show you however many libraries it can find on your local network that are using your Apple ID. In my case, there are actually a few different computers that fit this description, but today there's just one. 8. Once you select the computer that you want to stream from, the new iPad will load up that machine's library and display its name across the top of your screen. 9. Now you can then navigate through the library just as you would if you were navigating the synced files on your new iPad.
