Likewise, the Apple TV is Airplay compatible and I can bring up a stream on my iOS device and tell it to stream on Apple TV. Roku, if they could partner with Apple and implement Airplay, could theoretically receive the stream that I push from iOS.
Airplay is open to third parties. Will Roku try to partner with Apple?

Codecs might be an issue, but probably not since I think the airplay stuff uses h.264/aac, just like most iOS streams that already work on the Roku.n9yty wrote:Man, Roku, don't make me buy an AppleTV to have the ability to stream from my coming-for-Christmas iPad to my TV. Besides, I'm out of inputs on the TV so something would have to go, and I don't want it to be the Roku player!
Since support is now on an XBMC Linux box http://www.tuaw.com/2010/12/20/airplay-running-on-xbmc-linux-box/ - why can't it be in the Roku? Problems with supported video codecs? Not enough horsepower/RAM/etc?
