    Default Airplayer on 1st gen AppleTV

    has anyone attempted (or succeeded) in installing Airplayer to enable airplay support (as a receiver) on first gen AppleTV? To my uneducated little mind this seems perfectly possible.

    There are two barriers (neither impossible to get around)

    1. AirFlick is currently compiled for 10.5 or higher, the author has made it clear that they don't want to put in the effort to support 10.4 (which the ATV1 is based on)
    2. There is likely a lot of content that the ATV1 cannot playback without stuttering - which the ATV2 can playback - only part of the h.264 decoding is hardware accelerated on ATV1


    My hope is that davilla will release his airplayer as an xbmc plugin compiled for ATV1 (assuming it even needs to be compiled for a specific platform) - I mostly run XBMC on my ATV1 and have a CrystalHD card installed (which can handle decode of higher spec h.264 than the ATV1 can handle natively)
    Please read the stickies & search forum before posting!

    I see - thank you for the detailed response! I suppose I will be waiting for brilliant davilla - again! Is there anything this guy can't do? It will be funny if we end up with an airplay client that is more capable than the new appletv (thanks to the CrystalHD chip)!

    Only if you install 10.5 and use Erica Saduns' AirPlayer Index of /ftp/AirPlay
