AirPlay reaches Windows Media Center in beta app

updated 03:55 pm EDT, Tue May 24, 2011

Requires bonjour but not iTunes

Thomas Pleasance has released an AirPlay for Windows Media Center (WMC) Beta add-in. The app allows a user to run AirPlay transparently within WMC. The user can then share pictures or video originating from an iOS device such as an iPad on their TV or PC. The initial release does not support music.

Getting AirPlay to work on Windows Media Center is now straightforward. The user just downloads and installs AirPlay for Media Center - Beta 1 as well as Apple's Bonjour service.

Apple's AirPlay allows wireless streaming of video, photos and music. It normally runs in conjunction with iTunes. Operating within Media Center, this app does not require it. This follows on recent releases of AirPlay support for Android devices, which also do not use iTunes.
