Android HIFI: Listen to Cool Tunes While Apple Gets Pwned

We at XDA love innovation. We also have a strong distaste for those who stifle it. Companies like Apple sometimes put out a product that may be useful, but they lock it down to prevent others from utilizing it. AirPlay is one such feature.

For the unaware, AirPlay is a proprietary streaming protocol that allows for audio and video to be beamed to network devices. Despite the fact that it was locked down to only “Apple approved” products, last year developer James Laird was able to extract the RSA private key used by the AirPlay protocol. This in turn allows third party developers to decrypt AirPlay streams and incorporate it into their applications.

XDA Member Android-HIFI is one such developer. His self-titled release, Android HIFI, is an application that allows your Android device to double as an AirPlay receiver/server and features:

– stream audio from AirPlay clients (itunes, iOS, …)
– be able to adjust the delay, so that it is possible to play in sync with other AirPlay receivers, or sync with the video
– auto mute when there is an incoming call
– auto turn down the volume if your headset unplugged, or your Bluetooth device disconnected, to avoid noisy surprise
– run in the background as a service

So what are you waiting for? Head on over to the original thread and give this a go.
