Can you stream a movie from galaxy note 2 to an ipad4...

...directly or via an app?

Is there such a possibility?

Doubt It.

Android & iOS don't go along together.
:(

I know I can easily share stuff between the two using Dropbox/media fire (media fire files on mobile safari have option to be opened in Dropbox/compatible installed apps in my experience and I have loads of storage there for personal documents).

I wish there was a way to stream videos from the 64/128 gb sd on note 2 to the iPad. Would love that a lot.

Anyone else know a solution?

Looks for an app the supports dlna?
In theory with jail break you can airplay from xbmc to xbmc I think
Never mind no jail beak on the 4

I can't see the situation where you'd want to do this...
if you're streaming any quality movie, you'd be better off doing it directly or playing it directly

Sharing a recorded video is pretty common IMO

Just look at how airplay, miricast and dlna work it can be quite useful

Consider this: I have a portable collection on a 64 GB MicroSD card that resides in the note while carrying a 16 gb iPad. Instead of connecting to my PC (wireless or otherwise) for copying a certain video, I can just play it directly from the note 2. A potable way to share media from the smaller device to larger one.

It is a pretty good thing if it is possible, iPhones can play content through AirPlay, but i would love it if the note could somehow achieve the same.

I use media:connect app on the iPad to connect to all my dlna devices in the home network. Can stream and play from all dlna devices including PS3, WDVLiveHub.

I get a better picture of what you're doing. I don't have a note 2 yet but I'm sure the AirPlay equivalent exists for generic devices, you might just run into the issue of the iPad rejecting it or not having the app for it. For example if you managed to get DLNA with you note 2 and your DLNA tv, that's great but the iOS might not support.

Apple does everything in it's power to prevent any sort of interaction with Android.

Heh. But some of us are persistent lol. I do hate that it is hard to make these devices work together, i don't like locking in a single ecosystem and being a loyalist, and am a proponent of technologies being compatible all around. Sadly, that happens to be quite rare.
