This sounds interesting. The focus of GSoC won't be iOS, but this could be a valuable addition. Could you elaborate your ideas on how to achieve this considering that VideoToolbox and VDADecoder are private frameworks on iOS?

Native AirPlay streaming from within VLC is against the App Store regulations, so we are limited to AirPlay mirroring like certain games are doing it. Still, this needs to be tested.

Could you give a use-case for this beyond AirPlay?

Finally, could you add your ideas to the wiki page? :-)
