    Stream video to iPAD Mini??

    Gang is there a way to include iPAD Mini somehow as a client so that from my big muscular Win 8 HTPC do-all I can stream videos across my AP to the iPAD?
    I realize there are a few moving parts here:
    - the format: I am trying to learn Format Factory as a tool to convert things to an mp4 that the ipad can take, in 720p
    - the player used on the Mini... does it require a different one than what's included... an app in other words
    - somewhere I thought I saw a way to mount non-apple devices as 'server' to the ipad.... or was that on imac.
    - push vs pull.. is there a way, from Win 8, to discover the iPAD device and through some authentication regimen, push the content over to the ipad?

    I guess alternatively I can use Skydrive, then pick things out of the skydrive and copy to itunes... seems like a really circuitous route however. If I had the Pro package I could make a local server a "skydrive" server but I have a learning curve there...

    I'm a fan of Remote Potato for such things, although Air Video works as well.
