AirMediaPlayer: Stream From iOS To Your Windows PC [video]

AirMediaPlayer for Windows is a Windows-based AirPlay Media Player, which allows your iOS device to stream media to your PC. You will need the following pre-requisites for your PC:

  • Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7
  • Microsoft .NET framework 3.5 SP1 (free from Microsoft)
  • Bonjour for Windows (it is included with iTunes, or you can download the Bonjour Print Services for Windows free from Apple)
  • Quick Time (Get the latest QuickTime from Apple)
  • Download AirMediaPlayer for Windows v1.0.1 ( for some reason, the dev deleted his blog and took down AirMediaPlayer. We will let you know when it will be available for download again )

Download and unzip the file above and run the executable. Just make sure you press “Unlock” in the Windows Security Alert. This just lets AirMediaPlayer open a listening port to accept incoming connections from iOS clients.


For those experiencing the following error: “Cannot create QuickTime player.”, check the following on your system:

  • In the “C:\Program Files\QuickTime” folder, there should be two dll files: QTOControl.dll and QTOLibrary.dll. If any of them is missing, reinstall QuickTime 7.
  • Re-register those 2 dll’s: Open a command prompt (Start->Run and type ‘cmd’ and press OK). Go to the QuickTime directory (type: ‘cd “C:\Program Files\QuickTime”‘), and re-register the dll’s (type: ‘regsvr32 QTOControl.dll QTOLibrary.dll’)
