Allow your iOS device to be an AirPlay Speaker!!!!
You can currently connect AirPlay to an Apple TV, an audio system connected to an AirPort Express station or an AirPlay-enabled audio system. But, you can't send audio from an iOS device to another iOS device or from iTunes on your Mac/PC to an iPhone/iPad.
Imagine the possibilities of iOS devices as AirPlay speakers: you're in the car, iPhone is connected to your car's audio setup, a friend's in the backseat playing with his iPad. He wants to send some music from his iPad library to the iPhone, he fires up the iPod app on his tablet and instantly streams music to the car's audio system thanks to the iPhone acting as a speaker. Or, your Mac's in your bedroom and you want to play some tunes on your iPad. If only the iPad was an AirPlay speaker, you wouldn't have to sync music (and thus eat space) on it.
Now you can!!!!
- ARM7-compatible CPU (iPod touch 2G and newer devices)
- iOS 4 (Best on 4.2.1)
- For optimal performance, use external speakers and leave the LCD turned on.
- Optional: Install and run "Remote" from the App Store to control iTunes from your device
- Optional: Install and run "AirView" from the App Store to stream videos
- Enable remote speakers under Devices, in the iTunes preferences.
- Install the AirPrint service if you still can't connect
- Look for the AirPlay icon
- After installing, use (in a terminal) the commands "airplay start" and "airplay stop" to temporarily pause and resume the server.
"airplay off" and "airplay on" persist across reboots.
