Fans have taken AirPlay, a wireless media streaming technology from Apple, to places far beyond the boundaries of the iOS/Apple TV walled garden. For example, we’ve seen stuff like a Cydia hack that enables AirPlay in any third-party app, AirPlay support on Android and more. Developer Thomas Pleasance took it upon himself to enable AirPlay on Windows Media Center devices.
Note that you must have Apple’s Bonjour running on your Media Center PC prior to installing his cool AirPlay for Windows Media Center add-in. Bonjour is included with Apple’s free programs for Windows, such as iTunes, QuickTime, Safari and more. Grab the AirPlay for Windows Media Center add-in (still in beta) at Thomas Pleasance’s personal homepage, it’s a tiny half a megabyte download.
So, does this thing work?
