I would like to start a new project definitely out of my current skill level. I want to make a program to run on the Pi that will allow it to use AirPlay and display on a 2nd gen Apple Tv. This is mostly for a learning experience but also because I have a few practical uses. For now I would like to display just the console with no GUI. I have a couple questions before I tackle this project.
Is the model B Pi specs good enough to accomplish this?
I ask because I use AirParrot on my Windows box and it consumes roughly 20% of 4.0GB RAM and about 15-20% processor speed on an Intel T9600 2.8Ghz although this is streaming the GUI at the highest quality settings and forcing 720p at 60fps. Most of my programming experience is with web I have a little knowledge with C,Obj C and Python.
Is there a library out for C that allows for capturing the screen for streaming?
