We heard it was in development just two days ago and now we've got a first glimpse at Apple's AirPlay media streamer working a Windows PC. The hack comes courtesy of the free AirMediaPlayer client for Windows client (currently at version 1.0.5) that leverages the Microsoft .NET framework 3.5 SP1, Quicktime, and Bonjour for Windows to enable AirPlay media streaming from any iOS device back a XP, Vista, or Windows 7 PC. Possibly good to news for those of you with PC-based media centers. Catch all the hot Apple on Microsoft video action after the break.
This German video explains the whole thing.

COMMENTARY: AirPlay, a feature incorporated in iOS 4.2 that was released in late November 2010, lets you stream digital media wirelessly from your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to the new Apple TV or any AirPlay-enabled speakers. So you can watch movies and photos on your widescreen TV and play music through the best speakers in the house.
It is cool that Steve Jobs will allow PC users the ability to view iTunes videos on their desktops and laptops.
