If you have XBMC, then enabling AirPlay works when XBMC is open, but performance is spotty. YouTube are other Internet site videos AirPlay fine, but locally stored videos not so much (720p okay, 1080p sometimes). Photos work fine.

There's AirBuddy (via Amazon store), which also partially works like above. But, it limits streaming, unless you pay 99 cents.

Airbuddy is a lousy app. I had better luck with Airplay Receiver. It works for the most part. I did not spend $5 for the pro-version as I am hoping that there will be a Fire TV compatible app for airplay sooner than later.

I will test it out when I get back home in the evening and do a more thorough test. However, as far as I remember, it works very well. I was able to stream both audio and video. The app itself is annoying due to the nags to upgrade, but other than that I had no complaints.
