Airplay

Travis

Ruby Airplay

A client (and someday a server) of the superfancy http content stream technique that Apple uses in its products.

Now supports any Airplay-compatible device, like Airserver

You can try this in an AppleTV for instance.

IMPORTANT!

Since iOS 5 there are some changes in the API so to keep playing something (like a video) you must keep the client alive!

Basic Usage

require 'airplay'

airplay = Airplay::Client.new
# To send an image
airplay.send_image("fancy_pants.jpg")

# To stream a video
airplay.send_video("http://www.yo-yo.org/mp4/yu2.mp4")

Sending images

require 'airplay'

airplay = Airplay::Client.new

airplay.send_image("fancy_pants.jpg")
airplay.send_image(File.open("/home/userman/Pictures/fancy_pants.jpg"))
airplay.send_image("http://mine.icanhascheezburger.com/completestore/Wezinyercupz128401525895963750.jpg")

Transitions

require 'airplay'

airplay = Airplay::Client.new

airplay.send_image("fancy_pants.jpg", :dissolve)
airplay.send_image("fancy_pants.jpg", :slide_left)
airplay.send_image("fancy_pants.jpg", :slide_right)

Scrub

require 'airplay'

airplay = Airplay::Client.new
airplay.scrub
# {:duration => 189, :position => 50}
airplay.scrub(30) # Media goes to 30s
airplay.scrub("10%") # Media goes to the 10% of its duration

Password Authentication

require 'airplay'

airplay = Airplay::Client.new
airplay.use "Apple TV"
airplay.password "password"

airplay.send_image("lolcatz.jpg")

Player

require 'airplay'

airplay = Airplay::Client.new
player = airplay.send_video("http://www.yo-yo.org/mp4/yu2.mp4")
player.pause
player.resume
player.scrub
# {:duration => 189, :position => 50}
player.scrub("50%") # Go to the half of the media
player.stop

Useful methods

require 'airplay'

airplay = Airplay::Client.new
airplay.browse
#=> [#<Airplay::Node:0x007fbb5a83eb28 @name="elCuervo", @domain="local.", @ip="10.1.0.63">, #<Airplay::Node:0x007fbb5a83b0b8 @name="Apple TV", @domain="local.", @ip="10.1.0.220">]
