There are a lot of different Airplay apps for Mac and Windows PC. I tested Reflector App 1.5.4 on Mac OS X 10.8.2 Mountain Lion and Reflector 1.2.3 on Windows 8 Pro, AirServer 1.1.2, AirParrot 1.1.3 and Airfoil 3.3.2 on Windows 8 Pro.
The latest version contains:
- a fixed bug #17 (crash in case tray text gets too long)
- a fixed bug displaying wrong remaining time for very long playing streams
- an additional “now playing” option-switch to tray-context-menu
- an improved multimedia control panel
- some eye candy
Shairport4w 220.127.116.11 is running perfectly on Windows 8 Pro like the predecessor did. Obviously, Frank Friemel is planning to release a version of Shairport4w for Windows Media Center and Xbox Extender soon… I’m looking forward to that release!
