Media shows

  • Manage your own media shows, save it and present it wherever you are.
  • You like some videos from DailyMotion or YouTube, want to store your favorites and show it to your friends?
  • Browse with the integrated internet browser safely, add the video links of these web sites to a media show, save it and present the media show to your friends with nessViewer. No lengthy download is necessary, no extensive capacity is required.
  • Manage your media show: copy the selected entry and paste it into another media show of your choice. Edit the title and then sort your media show entries.
  • The media shows are compatible to media shows created on Mac. This way you can transfer your media shows between Mac and iOS to watch for example the same collected internet videos.

    Media presentation

  • A picture, video or PDF document can be presented by the ">" button. With the ">>" button all media beginning at the selected entry will be continously presented. PDF documents will be presented page by page.
  • In the "Settings App" the duration (1-9 seconds) of the presentation and AirPlay (for AppleTV) can be set.

    Media management

  • Select "Open File" and
    • create folders and move your media to these folders,
    • rename folders or files,
    • delete a file, or delete optionally all files in a folder,
    • import pictures and movies from the "Photos App" (including existing metadata / geo data),
    • export pictures and movies to the "Photos App" (including existing metadata / geo data),
    • send media to your friends by email,
    • edit pictures and movies.
  • Together with the FTP server & client you can e.g. import a picture from the "Photos App", rename the picture and then transfer the picture via FTP to another device. Neither an email account nor a cloud server is needed.

    Internet browser

  • The integrated internet browser - available by "Open URL" - loads web sites safely by only loading content belonging to the web site. Media content like videos can be presented even if usually a flash plugin would be necessary (which is not available with iOS). Links to videos can be easily collected in media shows just by touching the "+" button.
  • In the "Settings App" stop words can be defined. Add e.g. "banner,mobile" to block all content which URL contains these words. The effect is not only a faster & clearer display - it can also prevent the redirection to "mobile" content.
  • This way you can access e.g. the YouTube web pages the same way as you know it from your computer - and not the reduced version which looks totally different and often offers much less content.

FTP server & client

  • nessViewer App integrates a FTP server and a client (available by "Open URL" and adding e.g. "").
  • Thereby it is not only possible to exchange media between two devices - also media from you computer can be transfered via WLAN.
  • Furthermore the Mac version offers a media server: it converts media automatically if the format is not compatible to iOS.
  • Through the media server it is even possible to present your media on the Mac directly on your device. With appropiate tools (either →VLC 2.0 or Apple's mediastreamsegmenter) movies and DVDs can be segmented and streamed directly.
  • Please note that the FTP server is only accepting one connection. Therfor using on your computer e.g. "Cyberduck", in the preferences "Transfer files: Use browser connection" must be set (tab "General").
