So far testing this beta software has been great. The iphone mirroring for most apps has been great. Very easy to use as rplay runs at start up.

Obviously there is a delays between the mirroring, I'm not sure how that compares to the real apple tv, will need someone with apple tv.

For videos, using youtube can is still a bit buggy. After viewing the first video, I have been having difficulty trying to play another video afterwards.
BBC Iplayer App can be laggy too with the video and sound.

airplaying iphone video is not very smooth, and takes a long time to load, but i'm guessing thats normal.

Videos using safari and chrome on webpages has been working fine. Works very well. This was mainly tested azdrama.sx.

I haven't managed to get chromecast to work yet. Icon doesn't seem to appear on youtube app. Youtube is the latest versi

OK, got my beta link and set it up on a fresh Rasbian install last night. Here are my tesing results so far (from an iPhone 5 running iOS 6.1.4)

• Audio only AirPlay from the default Music app works
• Audio only AirPlay from 8tracks radio app works
• Video mirroring of the home screen works, but when the phone is in vertical orientation the screen is stretched to fill (probably expected behavior), and in horizontal orientation the side of some apps get cut off (appears to be the portion of the screen where the iPhone 5's screen is wider than the 1080p TV I have my Pi connected to.
• Video airplay from the HBO Go App caused rplay to crash
• Video airplay from the Hulu Plus app works without crashing but the video is very choppy (maybe less than 10 frames per second), the audio is smooth though.
• Video airplay from the Netflix app works without crashing but both audio and video are very choppy.

-Alan



but I've been unable to get airplay mirroring with the HBO Go app working (seems to crash rplay and the HBO).

Hi Alan,

Thanks for the feedbacks.

Are you using Model A? audio/video should be very fast and smooth on Model B with 256M allocated to GPU memory. We recommend using Model B for rPlay.

Hey, I was wondering if I would be able to test out the beta. I am studying Computer Engineering and the raspberry pi is one of the things i like to tinker most with.

Hey @huisinro I've had a Rasp Pi model B for a year -- been using as a media center.

I'd love to beta test airplay mirroring -- that's been a biggy for my dev uses. Would you add me? [email protected]

I'd also be interested in hearing your intents: is this something you'd consider open sourcing, or is this a commercial product? If you were interested in OSing, I'd love to get my hands dirty (I'm at https://github.com/nybblr)

Thanks!

In your email mirroring with iphone 4 does not work. Do you think that it will be available in the Future?

iPhone 4 is not supported by Apple for mirroring, needs to be iPhone 4S and above.

We do have sender programs but Apple is likely to reject it, if there is a need for iPhone 4 mirroring, we can consider providing such an app in the future.

I am testing it and it works with my iphone 4s. It does not work when i try mirroring from my iMac. Haven´t tested my macbook yet. Is it supposed to work from OS X or just from iOS?

We didn't test much on Mac AirPlay mirroring, but some of our users found that it works, but the delay is huge. We will try to test more on OS X.
