I'm new to AirPlay. I want to find a good tutorial to learn about Airplay and its APIs and how I can use it for sharing my iPhone screen on my Mac device.

What I learned:

  1. iPhone 4S+ will support AirPlay, but how can I make my Mac capture the screen of iPhone?
  2. RTSP and RTP Protocols are used. Do we have to implement it in our code?

I didn't get what author meant by

What developers cannot do:
i. Allow users to enable mirroring within an application.
ii. Programmatically select remote screens or provide an alternative selection method outside of MPVolumeView.

Please help me to learn more about it.

"(I didn't get what author mean by) What developers cannot do: i. Allow users to enable mirroring within an application." - that's exactly what you are trying to do. Gotta roll your own implementation. – H2CO3 Jun 25 '13 at 6:15

Please expand your answer... If the link goes dead, what should we know about X-Mirrage or anything else? – studiohack May 19 '15 at 19:13
