[AirPlay][Warning] Don't update to iOS8 if you want AirPlay
Hi,

(warning: new user & poster alert)

Trying to get Airplay to work - works fine with audio & photo's, fails on videos: "Playback error . Tap to retry" (YouTube app).

Kodi 14.0-ALPHA5 (Compiled: oct 25 2014)
OS: Ubuntu 14.04.1 (minimal installation for XBMC/Kodi only, so no desktop installed; firewall is disabled)
HW: Intel NUC DN2820FYKH (Celeron N2820, Intel graphics). Connected via gigabit LAN.
iDevice: iPhone 4S with iOS8.1 installed;
iDevice 2: iPad Air with iOS88.0.2 installed.
Settings: Airplay enabled, iOS8 compatibility mode enabled, Allow volume control enabled, no password protection.

Using YouTube on the iPhone, it can sometimes take several seconds but then returns with "Playback error Tap to retry". Other times it keeps trying indefinitely. No response visible on the Kodi screen. Sane result when Airplaying from the iOS8.0.2 iPad with Youtube.

The most positive so far is when I try to play from the native Apple video app: for a short time Kodi shows the video control buttons and "Working..." in the bottom-right corner - then gives up and shows the normal Kodi menu screen.

I have enabled airtunesdebug in advanced settings. A small copy/paste of the ~/.kodi/temp/kodi.log:

Given the comments in this topic, it seems that a lot of people have this working with iOS8, so likely that the problem is on my side. Any suggestions what the problem can be or how to debug or solve it? Is any information missing here? Thanks for your time!
