No problem.

The media player in itself is super-simplistic. (Plays a local audio file). In the next couple of days, I should have AirPlay support.
Sorry, but this approach does not make sense to me at all. iOS provides AirPlay audio playback out of the box when using the audio output APIs, be it AudioQueue or AudioUnit (have a look at the existing VLC app for iOS).
Thus, if you just want sample streams to play with, compile VLC for iOS.
