Guys, i've been interested in doing cloud delivery of dailies to director's /producre's IOS device over the cloud.
I am trying to upload a h.264 encoded quicktime to a "cloud" of sorts. from there I would like my director's IOS device to automagically download that quicktime while he is asleep. So when he wakes up next day, its already there.
I kinda got there with Dropbox, but it requires for him to click on the file. Only then does the download start (Unfortunate since he then needs to wait). Also, it won't keep the download unless he marks the file with a star (favorite). So, that seems to be a no-go.
Other attempts where to make a password protected private podcast, and although that will work with iTunes on a OSX device, alas, no luck on IOS. It would be great if we get the newsstand functionality, but for the quicktime files I am generating. Instead, he needs to sync to get those podcasts unto his device.
Also tried takeoff video, and its fairly neat, but it misses the aspect of pre downloading all the video files to the IOS Device.
This is a fairly trivial task, we have been prepping iPad dailies for a while, but on this next project I would really like to avoid the need to plug-in the iPad to drop the dailies.
Any bright people out there who have solved this care to share?
