"This handy tool turns the AirPlay pathway back around, allowing you to play video or images from your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 4.2 or higher directly onto your Mac. While you probably have most of the same content on your computer that you have on your iDevice, it's a great way to show videos on a bigger screen when visiting a friend or family member; it also opens up AirPlay streaming from iOS devices your friends or colleagues have with them, even if you don't have an Apple TV (at the office, for example)."
"Enter Erica Sadun's AirPlayer. The app runs a Bonjour server on a Mac which simply advertises itself as an AppleTV. Once it's up and running, all you need to do is select your Mac as a destination on your iOS 4.2 device and it's now a big Apple TV."
"Hey Mac home theater users, listen up -- your AirPlay wishes have come true."
"Among the numerous omissions to Apple's otherwise great AirPlay streaming technology was the ability to stream from your iOS device to your Mac (or PC). AirPlayer solves that problem with one click"
"Well done, Miss Sadun."
"[U]nless you've managed to snag yourself a shiny new Apple TV, you haven't been able to get the most out of [AirPlay]-until now."
"If you use a Mac for viewing movies, or as part of a home theater setup, you're probably painfully aware that there is not a way to stream video content to that Mac. Worry not, though: developer Erica Sadun has begun development of AirPlayer, an app that lets your Mac masquerade as an Apple TV to AirPlay-enabled iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches so that you can stream content to the Mac."
"While Apple's AirPlay feature introduced in iOS 4.2 allows users to stream certain video content from their iOS devices to the new Apple TV, users have been wondering if the service will ever be extended to allow content to be streamed to their Macs in a similar fashion. In addressing the question of whether such an implementation would be difficult, TUAW's Erica Sadun has put together an alpha version of a Mac OS X application known as "AirPlayer" that does exactly that."
"You don't even need to jailbreak your iOS device!"
