brilliant stuff! who needs AppleTV when you can have a £25 Linux box and some boffins

Avatar

Now this is a very nice demonstration, all be it I just have to ask.

Did the R-Pi launch AirPlay itself ? It really looks like it did.

Avatar

I hope Dom will drop in here and answer questions later on. (I know a few people here work with Dom – please poke him gently when you see him!)

Avatar

A small AirPlay service runs in the background and announces itself (using Bonjour) as an Apple TV2.

This means when playing a video on an iOS device, an Airplay menu option becomes available to send the video to that device.

The R-Pi does a little communication with the iOS device and gets an http URL to play. This may point to the iOS device or the internet.

The media player on R-Pi plays the video from that URL.

Avatar

While this is a very cool proof of concept and makes me even more excited to buy an RP, it doesn’t really seem like true AirPlay to me. My understanding of AP is that the bits are actually streamed from 1 device to the other. In this case, you say it’s really just sharing the URL and the RP opens that URL.

That works great for YouTube, but what if the clip is local to the iPad? Does this have the capability to actually send the bits?

Thanks again!!! SOOOOOO excited ;)

Avatar

Shoot. Please ignore my last comment. I re-read your previous post and realized I’d missed the all important “This may point to the iOS device” line. So it sounds like does exactly what I’d want it to do!!!

Hurray again!

Avatar

Is there source code available somewhere for airplay app running on PI? Thanks.

Avatar

+1
Would really like to know, hopefully it’s something less invasive than xbmc

Avatar

Hi Dom,
i tried to use the source code airplay-nmt (i found it into google source) in a fedora machine with bad result.
Reading the source code it seems to use a bonjour service that i can’t found.
I’m doing anyting wrong?

Avatar

Now i’m very supprised that this didn’t get posted on the front page earlier! Very cool stuff :)

Now all we need is some way to use the raspi to choose what it is you want streemed over airplay then i’m laughing :p

Avatar

That’s my bad – the email he sent me the link in got lost in a massive thread discussing other development stuff, and I was so busy I clean forgot about it until Eben reminded me this morning. I could really do with a spare brain right about now.

Very swell technology, goodbye $150 Apple tv, nice knowing your 720p!

Avatar

AppleTV is now $99. I don’t know if they saw the RasPi cows but there you go. :P

Avatar

Here in Europe it’s about 150 USD or more.
In the UK it’s 99 GBP which is approx. 153 USD at the current rate.
And in Denmark where i live its approx. 160 USD so i welcome a 35$ alternative (planning to ude it with xbmc for extra awesomeness)!!

How should I spend my pocketmoney? An Apple TV or four Raspberry Pi?

Oh, another fan of Cyriak?

Weirdo programmers :)

Yeah. Now I love them even more.

Avatar

Great work! That’s an impressive hack. Looking forward to playing with Raspberry Pi! This kind of thing is presently not possible (at all) with a stock Arduino. I still can’t believe the Raspberry Pi is priced near things like Arduino and has so much more power. Don’t get me wrong, I love Arduino and it’s helped me in more ways than I can count, but this board takes it to a new level.

Avatar

I sure hope all these types of programming is fully documented upon release :D

Avatar

Great job! Does it do mirroring as well?

Avatar

Have you seen the rest of that video? It’s really weird…

Avatar

I thought of captions for the part from the front page:
Do you want a Raspberry Pi? (Cows nod.)
How would you feel when you get one? (Cows dance.)
… but I have no idea how to caption the later parts! :P

Avatar

More good news. First XBMA and now this. The foundation definatly sent the alpha and beta boards to some of the right people.

Avatar

Hey that’s very very nice… where can I get this little application???

Very nice. I like it. The R-Pi is unleashing it power one by one. Lets see what it can do more. I am eager to test it. :)

Avatar

hmmm… thanks to Dom, I searched YouTube for more Cyriak videos. Until I ran into “Meow”. Cat is now barred from bedroom and I now have zombie nightmares.

Avatar

I love it! :-D

Avatar

That’s more / less what I wanted to use RP for in the first place. I’m planing to setup an AppleTV alternative using RP + airplay + XBMC (I hope that one will work). Internet radio, wireless speakers, media box, all in one for 35$ :) And I can add more features later if I want to :)

Avatar

XBMC supports this out of the box on Linux now. Before you used to have to run a perl script first, but now it’s all included in the XBMC codebase itself. You just turn it on in the Network settings page in XBMC and you’re good to go.

I’ve got a couple of Linux XBMC boxes (even a venerable ATV1 running Hardy) that all take airplay content from my Macbook’s iTunes or the GF’s iPhone4. Although XBMC is in Beta at the mo, so some sketchyness should be expected from time to time!

Avatar

That’s just great! I didn’t want to have big linux box under my TV. RP is the ultimate answer for all my needs :) Can’t wait to get one :) So far I was successfully using perl shairport script to stream iTunes music between two apple machines. I feel I’ll have lot of fun with RP :) I’m not sure though how efficient will RP be in DivX decoding. I was reading something about OpenMAX which XBMC is about to introduce. If I’m correct that will allow to decode other video formats using RP GPU (I might be wrong here though).

Do Android based tablets have something like Airplay?

Avatar

they can play videos on dlna devices.

Avatar

Haven’t tryed yet (I don’t have AirPlay or DLNA compatible device), but EyeC app should support Airplay and DLNA from Android:
https://market.android.com/details?id=com.eyecon.eyec

Another app of this kind is Skifta:
http://www.skifta.com/
https://market.android.com/details?id=com.skifta.android.app
“with your smartphone or tablet you can also stream it to DLNA-Certified™ and UPnP-compatible TVs, IP-connected stereos, PlayStation 3 game consoles, Windows 7 PCs thousands of other connected consumer electronics devices anywhere”

Then I would suppose you haven’t seen the rest of it… Go to YouTube, search “Cyriak” and select “Cows & Cows & Cows”.

Avatar

funny funny funny

but seriously, do you think the chip/ram on the board could handle the creation of this type of content?

Avatar

Maybe not C&C&C’s level of complexity, but I’d downloaded a nice little video editor running under Xubuntu that I’d sure like to try porting to ARM. Resembled Windows Movie Maker, but without “Crash&BurnEvery5Minutes” plugin. ;-)

This is pretty cool. I’ve seen demos of xbmc and now Airplay linked from this site. When these are ready will there be code/installers available from this site?

Apologies for the next question as it’s a little unrelated, but i want to know how big an SD card i may need… how much space does a Fedora install for R Pi take up on the SD card?

Thanks

Avatar

4GB is what I use, 2GB also works, and will take up to 32GB./

Avatar

I bet DRM protected videos will not be supported… right?

Avatar

I believe that is the case – there is no DRM key in the device as far as I know.

Avatar

I Hope that music play is supported to.
It will be best solution for bathroom to listen podcast\music :)

Avatar

I have an idea for the case! we could make the case simply with beads! there are many tools to design a beadpattern so we could make it with the raspberry symbol on it.
first you melt the 2 baseplates, after that you melt the wall (i think you have to make 2 or 3 stacked) and then you glue them together.

Avatar

I did not know the raspi could do this! Nifty.

Avatar

Sweet! I’m planning on buying 2 pi’s for use as two HTPC’s in different rooms. My plan was to build an interface that works with the net based players (e.g iPlayer, 4OD) as well as our local network drive (Netgear Stora) which has a UPNP based media share. Having Airplay will make it fantastic! Is there any way to have an airplay server on it yet, as opposed to the client?

Avatar

Please forgive a very basic question from a newby:
in this example the RPi must have a wireless connection to the ipad to receive the signal. Are wireless dongles sufficiently generic that they will all work, or do you need to get one specifically supported by whichever Linux distro you are using?

Avatar

The iPad needs to have wifi to the AP (usually your router) and then the RPi needs to have a connection to the router (wired or wifi). The RPi in this case just picks up the commands from the network, no direct iPad-RPi connection is ever made.

Avatar

Thanks, I see, (I think) does one need a special router, i.e. is there anything special in the phrase “AirPlay” my wireless router is four or five years old – possibly more.

Avatar

morning

see here … http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4437

this tells you how to set up airplay for a variaty of apple products

Avatar

Damn, now I need to buy even more Rasberry Pi’s!

Avatar

Excellent demo guys. Can’t wait to get my hands on one! My three children are also desperate to try out ideas that they have and this is really what it’s all about. For me, this is the modern day equivilent of lego or mechano. Really looking forward to working with the kids to make really cool (and educational) stuff work.

Avatar

I might have to leave work for some time due to stress.
RP is stressing me out!!
I can’t wait any longer for the units to go on sale… :-/
I check the site in the middle of the night, while on the toilet, in the train, during supper, meetings and even while kissing my girlfriend goodnight.

Raspberry Pi team – please help me out!! :-)

Avatar

My wife thinks I have another woman on the go with all the time I’m on the phone checking the site for updates.
Please can it be released for my birthday the 25th of January.

Would this be able to be run headless (no TV) to stream just audio through AirPlay to a stereo?

You can use Shairport to do audio streaming. This will even let you stream the audio of videos, though there might be some lag depending on your network.

Tell me quando quando quando .. i can hold one in my hand highly interested in a PI

Avatar

What is of interest to me is not the price so much, as the ability to learn how to use linux in an embedded computer for control, personnally I would be quite
interested in purchasing lab type of tutorials to learn how to use C for control
applications. C being a standard for learining programming seems to make sense. Over the years there has been a miriad of programmining languages and the syntax changes just messes everyting up, it saps a person will to adapt ,it is no longer fun but just anoyance. Why the plethora of languages using different syntax for comment lines , how redundant is that. If their really was a will to have the masses to be able to program some standards would have been maintained. To me this is business control agenda to capture the market to set standards. Sorry for the long diatribe but I would like to push an agenda to make
things easier for me and presently I think Ansi Standard C should be the joice.
Good Luck on your endevors.
