UPDATE: AirMediaPlayer v1.07

Well Surprise Surprise, recently I did some scouring on the web to try and find the source to further the now discontinued AirMediaPlayer project :(...Only to my surprise to discover that they posted another version of the application shortly before the discontinuation...bringing some actually quite nice features and a bug fix or two, primarily: Photo Slideshow support

##FURTHER REPORT - NEW "Sideshow feature" WORKING

Well here's a link
AirMediaPlayer v1.07

[mirror] active in 24hours

Let me know how you get on in your comments below! I'll give it a go myself in the morning!

Note back:
Just so people know there is "now" a working prefer windows media player option (K-lite for best playback)

Untethered on iOS 4.2.1

 Within the jailbreak community there has recently been a scene release of the new redsnow tool by the iphone dev-team, (congratulations), this release looks into the untethering of the 4.2.1 jailbreak. Let it be said HOWEVER that this release is in fact a beta and consequentialy is down to some requirements:

4.2b3 shsh blobs (through cydia not only stored local)
A Mac

Again this is a BETA RELEASE - excerpt:
  • Task switcher causes Springboard crash (temporary workaround is to use SBSettings process list)
  • iPod player only works on ipt4g right now
  • Bluetooth currently disabled due to sandbox problem
Regardless I am not one to judge so here is a quick link to both the page and the MAC-beta

AirFlick v0.13

Thanks; Erica Sadun

AirFlick makes your mac a REAL server to a airplay compatible (video) device;
+ It can transcode files, play more formats on your ATV :) such as: AVI (xvid)
+ Videos need not be within iTunes 10.1.1, works with NAS / External

I have tried it out and have to say it works wonders, it DID however struggle to play; Iron.Man.2.2010.BluRay.720p.DTS.x264.mkv
I understand that this file however is quite high quality and would probably require a longer transcoding time than simply ~60seconds...a more powerful machine serving the data and it being over a gigabit LAN connection would have probably helped!
[I tested this using a 2010 Macbook Pro 15 medium/high spec]

REMEMBER; in order for transcoding to work properly you require VLC [it's a great media player...almost as good as windows media player classic :P]

VLC Links:
 WIN / (Intel)MAC  /  (PPC)MAC  /  LIN - Please use "app store"

AirFlick Link:
AirFlick v0.10b
AirFlick v0.13

-The v0.13 update should fix people's GREEN SCREEN problems, grab it while it's hot :D

If you would like a tutorial I can video one for you, please leave a comment :)
