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/files/Play2wifi-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.
