Hi All,

we have been working on a new remote display product, called rPlay

In short, rPlay v1.0 supports Apple's Airplay protocol, including the latest Airplay Mirroring technology, so you will be able to send iPhone/iPad screens to a HDTV powered by a Raspberry Pi. It supports real time audio/video streaming.

This is the first time Airplay mirroring is implemented on raspberry pi devices.

We are accepting 100 beta testers for the Raspberry Pi platform, please send email to info at our company domain name.

Youtube video demo:

A screenshot showing iPad mini with iOS 7 beta on Raspberry Pi is also attached.

For those who sent emails to request beta testing, please wait for a week or two, we are wrapping up a stable build for you. Thanks,

Any chance of a port for Android Devices? We've been trying with Android Transporter, BBQScreen, and MirrorOp, but nothing seems to work with Any Android device to the Raspberry Pi.

We don't support mirroring Android devices yet. However, we do have a port of rplay to run on Android, that is to mirror iOS devices to Android devices. (we plan to support mirroring Android in future releases)

If you want to mirror android at low fps, you can use our VNC server: (no audio/video, but what you see on the screen is indeed what you will get):

Legal concern
Apple doesn't open AirPlay mirroring protocol to any 3rd party. So far the only way to receive AirPlay Mirroring stream is via reverse engineering. Do you think it's possible to over come the legal issue and then make this functionality a real product to sell to consumers?

yes, that's our plan, to provide this as a real product for systems such as Raspberry Pi, Android, etc. We are also developing a miracast receiver within rPlay, so this would act as an open TV dongle. With our remote agent installed on the phone, (e.g., our VNC Server for Android and iOS), one can also remotely control the device, in addition to viewing.

When you say open, do you mean this will all be open source?

Open refers to support multiple devices, iOS, Android, PC etc.. We don't have plan yet as whether to open source it. We first need to make sure it works to its best.

I have received quite some emails for the beta testing, thanks. I will try to release the first test version late next week, stay tuned.

This first version will NOT contain miracast emulation, our upcoming versions will have that ready, so Android devices can also mirror screens to raspberry pi.
