Will you be able to AirPlay from your iPad to the PS3?

I don't see Sony allowing this anytime soon. It's possible, but may not be Sony allowed.

Sony would need to add this to the OS itself, unless Airplay uses DLNA, which I doubt.

Sony needs to add itunes support to the PS3....but that will never happen.

I know that this thread has been dead for a while now, but now that the PS3 is jailbroken, does anyone know of any "unofficial" support like, Airplayer on Windows/Ubuntu/OSX ? Thanks

The PS3 does not even support the latest DLNA profiles.

For example, it doesn't support push DLNA that's available through Windows Media Player on Windows 7 (the DLNA equivalent to AirPlay).

There's no way Sony will pay Apple a licensing fee to support AirPlay.

I was always under the impression that AirPlay was a Bonjuer service, anyways, it would be nice if it can be somehow imported, as you can tell im no programmer, but a dreamer i may be :P

just use "PS3 Media Server" it will stream any media file type you throw at it. Choose a video folder and choose a music folder and the PS3 will stream from your Mac/PC. This is way way way better than using Airplay anyway since it supports just about every media type.

That's fine if you keep all your media together, but Airplay supports pushing streams from devices dynamically.

IMHO Airplay was never intended to be a DLNA replacement. (although it can be )
It was designed for an Apple centric environment such that when surfing on an iPad and you find something on YouTube for example and want to share it with family, just send it to Airplay device.

Using DLNA, save video, copy to DLNA server, then select on DLNA client.

DLNA's great for static content like your movie library, but Airplay is better for random dynamic content.

The bottom line is they are complementary, not exclusive.

I use both. iTunes homesharing and Airplay for Mac and iOS devices and the same library shared using Playback (DLNA server) for Windows PCs and my PS3.

Maybe Sony will consider it, right?
