We have already seen a tool named AirPlayer for Mac OS X which allows you to AirPlay videos from iOS devices to Macs. And now, a similar tool named AirMediaPlayer for Windows has been released which will allow you to stream videos wirelessly from , iPad or iPod touch to your Windows PCs.
AirMediaPlayer for Windows is a Windows-based AirPlay Media Player, which allows your iOS device to stream media to your PC.
To get AirMediaPlayer working, you will need:
- A Windows XP, Vista or 7 PC with .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installed.
- Bonjour for Windows (Included with iTunes, or you can download the Bonjour Print Services for Windows free from Apple)
- QuickTime for Windows
- , iPad or iPod touch running iOS 4.2.1
Just like AirPlayer for Mac, you don’t need to jailbreak your device to stream videos to your Windows PC. But if you plan on using this functionality using third-party apps such asAirVideoEnabler or Air Home Video, you will have to jailbreak your iOS device on iOS 4.2.1, instructions for which can be found here.
