Raspberry Pi tweaked to run Apple AirPlay

updated 12:30 pm EST, Fri January 20, 2012

Raspberry Pi shown running AirPlay YouTube video

The sub-$40 Raspberry Pi single-board computer has now been shown to be able to support Apple's AirPlay wireless media streaming thanks to a tweak. The ARM-based, Debian Linux-running system can stream from an iPad to a connected HDTV, as shown in the video below. While there was a bit of a delay before it started, the YouTube video otherwise played back without a hitch on the big screen.

The Raspberry Pi in the video is the $35 Model B, which sports an Ethernet port. The $25 Model A does without the Ethernet port but both sport a 700MHz ARM11 processor, HDMI and USB ports. The Model A has 128MB of RAM, while the Model B doubles that. Either can play back 1080p video. [via NetbookNews]
