AirPlay on mythtv will work with either Alsa or PulseAudio , the
AirPlay server is completely independent to what audio framework
output you are using.

Yes, Audio and Video are fully supported with mythfrontend over AirPlay

For audio, there are solutions without buying Apple hardware. You can
obviously use iTunes on Windows.
But there are also some simple AirTune client that will connect to an
AirTunes server (airport express, apple TV of mythfrontend)
For videos, there's no "push" solution like Apple TV that I know of.
Most other solutions are "pull" only such as UPnP or DLNA. By pull I
mean you control what you want to do on the device that is going to
display the content..
