I looked around a while back when airplay came out and found the audio 
streamer had been reverse engineered, but found no mention of video. 
Looking at that first link it seems to focus on audio, but the python 
link seems to say video but no audio :-?  Confusing.

I'd love to be able to find a youtube video on my ipod and then use 
airplay to play it via mythfrontend on my tv.  That would be neat.

But I guess the other way round would be pretty good too; Watching 
something in the living room on Myth and I can just switch it to playing 
on the ipod, and wander off into another room to do something else for a 
few minutes, then come back into the living room and switch back to the 
TV.  Somehow that sounds more difficult though because presumably you'd 
have to transcode the video into a format the i-device understands...

Good luck if you decide to try to implement either of these - both would 
be nice features.
