I’ve been wanting to get Airplay Mirroring working on my Raspberry Pi for a long time. First, there was RaspBMC. This solution was limited to general airplay of photos, videos, and music. No Mirroring.
There was also AirPi. I have integrated it on the same pi that makes my standard LaserJet into a full-fledged AirPrint Printer. It allows you to use any standard set of speakers into a set of super powerful AirPlay Speakers. Obviously, still no mirroring.
Now, there is a new solution. rPlay – currently in beta – allows you to mirror everything that is on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch’s screen to whatever the Pi is plugged-in to.
Although it is a beta, I have installed it yesterday, and found very few bugs in the set-up procedure. I also found no errors in mirroring when connected to Ethernet.
Although I haven’t tried this feature yet, the team claims that you can password protect the ability to mirror.
I have several ideas of how I can implement this. I have always wanted to put a Apple TV in my office for mirroring Keynote presentations from my iPad, but I never could justify 100$ just for that. This software now gives me the ability to do just that.
