    For work, I have to turn my iPad into an airplay receiver. Is there something like this on cydia. I need for video, not airplay audio.

    I think there used to be on ios5/6, AirServer.

    Assuming you are on iOS 7. Nothing yet as I am aware of.

    If you are playing back youtube, you can try ChromeCatch, which turns your iPad into a Chromecast device

    So I should buy a device on iOS6? Is that my only option now? Are there any alternatives? Android tablets or some other device?? My boss needs this!

    You can try AirServer (available in BigBoss Repo) if you happen to have a ios6 jailbroken iPad in hand.
    Don't think this forum intends to discuss Android. And I don't know.
    AirServer is available in Mac so you can turn your Mac to an Airplay receiver.

    Unfortunately, the current version (3.2) is only capable of streaming audio, nothing else. That is, it won't work on his iPad for mirroring.

    what does he need to do? A presentation? You can have both w the same account and it should upload it into the iPad also. or is it that he wants to pass it around? example?
