A Java application that enables playing compatible videos on AirPlay devices.
This is a simple AirPlay player put together using Jetty, JmDNS, JQuery, and JQueryUI that will allow you to play videos on an AirPlay compatible device such as the AppleTV V2. This application has been tested on Windows, Mac and Linux using the Java 6 JDK from Oracle.
- User interface to control of playback of video.
Java 6 and Apache Ant are required to build this project.
Compile using Ant then run the resulting jar by running the startup.bat file on windows, double clicking on the AP4JPlayer.jar file or by using the following command in a terminal:
java -jar AP4JPlayer.jar
After starting the application use a web browser to access the user interface at http://localhost:7070/
On startup the application will detect AirPlay devices on your network and display them in the user interface. Copy a URL into the play video entry field and then click the play video link.
If you have a firewall you may need to make sure that it will allow mDNS broadcasts.
