Erica Sadun has announced AirPlayer, a custom Bonjour AirPlay service that lets you send video from your iPhone to your Mac just like you would to the Apple TV. This is great for those who use a iMac or Cinema Display as their TV.

Behold the development build of AirPlayer -- click Read More to see the video. What AirPlayer does is create and advertise a custom Bonjour AirPlay service that pretends to be an Apple TV. Bonjour is Apple's zero configuration networking solution for allowing devices and applications to communicate with each other over local area networks. When Apple created AirPlay, it basically set up a new way for Apple TV to interact with iOS using Bonjour communications.

You can download an ad-supported extremely alpha version of AirPlayer from Erica's website.

Very useful if you use a Mac Mini as a media centre on your HDTV. And an iPad.

It doesn't matter if it's a mac mini, a mac mini has alot more storage than an iphone and it should have a internet connection, so just go to the site on the computer. Maybe you could make a case for streaming video shot on the iPhone to the mac but the iPad doesn't have a camera.

I usually browse the Internet on my iPad while sat on the couch and the Tv is running through my mac mini in the background. Now when I come across a video I want to watch on the big screen or share with the room, I can just flick it up instantly.
