Airtunes support for ios/osx/linux #447
This is the already mentioned "second part" of AirPlay. This makes XBMC a target for AirTunes. Streaming lossless music via air. Per default its only activated for osx/ios.
For linux the lib/libshairport needs to be built and installed in the system (tested with ubuntu 10.04) and configure has to be called with option "--enable-airtunes".
This defaults to disabled for linux because libshairport is non existent (its a lib davilla built out of a standalone program). The whole implementation is based heavily on team boxee work - with some major fixes to make it work correctly ;)
Did i mention that XBMC becomes a set of speakers for iTunes with that? :D
For Windows - as with other features like that - the lack of Zeroconf/Bonjour/Avahi support is a blocker.
