Streaming Video from iPad and iPhone to Linux

Someone has ported Apple's Airplay to a Linux box running Ubuntu and XMBC. It seems to work flawlessly, allowing the user to select and stream from any Airplay-enabled device. It seems pretty simple and straightforward, and works with video and audio.


I wonder how long it would be before we start seeing Airplay in every Linux-based TV set or video box coming from China. [Ubergizmo]


Any word on how long before it is easily installed by the average user? The article was a little light on details, but I would love to give that a try.
