I am sure there are some of you who use the 27 inch iMac or Cinema Display as your main TV. Using an application known as AirPlayer you can play movies from your iPad onto your Mac.

By creating a custom Bonjour Airplay service, AirPlayer basically mimics Apple TV. Bonjour is basically Apple’s network configuration which allows devices and applications to interact over the same LAN.  Hence, by providing service feedback and interacting with iOS devices in the same way Apple TV would, AirPlayer can send video from your iPad to your Mac.

AirPlayer for your iPad has been developed by Erica Sadun, who also released a jailbreak app in Cydia which would allow AirPlay functionality through 3rd party applications. The best part about AirPlayer is that you do not need to jailbreak your iPad. You just need to be running iOS 4.2.1.
