XBMC for Android gets Airplay support in pre-release version

If you’re a mixed platform kind of person, with both iDevices and an Android media server, you can now use the popular XBMC media player to stream audio and video from your iPhone or iPad to your TV without any third-party hacks.

Engadget reports that Zeroconf support (aka Airplay compatibility) has been added to the latest pre-release Android version of XBMC, Gotham.

While this was a long-awaited development, interest may be reduced since Google launched its $35 Chromecast stick with similar functionality.

Full details and download from the XBMC site. The usual cautions about pre-release software apply.
