My usual live set-up is a Macbook Pro running Ableton Live for synths/backing track stuff, and a second Macbook running videos in Ableton Live. It's annoying, as I can't really get away with having everything on the one Macbook Pro (for various reasons). I have to trigger the videos to start by pushing a button the same time as starting the clips on the MBP. Also annoying.. (I tried a network/ethernet thing, but that was hugely unreliable).

SO! I've a couple of questions regarding running videos in Ableton, seeing as everyone's doing it these days there must be a simpler way for me.

- IS there a (simple) way for me to send a 'go' signal to the MAcbook from the MBP without the ethernet cable idea? It's 2013, so suuurrrely...?
- If I were to replace the Macbook with an iPad (something I'm probably gonna do), how would I run videos off of that/what program/etc and be able to sync them to start/stop with the audio on the MBP?

Thanks!

Why was the wireless network unreliable?

A few times (live) it would 'lose connection' or disconnect or whatever - hugely frustrating.... :(
