Unhappy XBMC Airplay on Fedora ?!?

Hi guys,
I installed xbmc and use it as my media center on Fedora, and it works awesome. I also have some apple devices and would love to use Airplay feature so that I could play video instead on small iphone screen on large TV screen via airplay feature.

You can see how this feature works in this video:

I setup xbmc per this wiki:

su -
yum install xbmc python-twisted

wget http://play2wifi.googlecode.com/file...fi-0.1.tar.bz2
tar xvjf Play2wifi*
cd Play2wifi*
cd src
cp play2wifi.service /etc/avahi/services/

/etc/init.d/avahi-daemon restart
vi play2wifi.cfg # port 8080
python play2wifi.py

But when I try to airplay video from iphone or ipad to my XBMC I just get an error that video can't be played on my Fedora box ;(

I don't have LiveTV menu in my XBMC so maybe that is the issue?!? How can I enable LiveTV menu in XBMC?

Please try these instructions and say if you get video to play on XBMC.

Just google airplay or check youtube, it is sharing audio, video and images from your mobile devices and playing them thorugh xbmc.

For example you see some cool youtube video and you can't share it with people in same room because your mobile phone screen is too small, just airplay it to your xbmc device and display it on main TV in the room.
