    If I am right, Apple do not sell licensing for Airplay to be used by anybody else

    But one can find vendors selling products that support Airplay2 (full video/audio/mirroring)

    How do they do it? I assume they crack/decrypt Airplay on cloud servers (https://api.vivi.io/handshake/ )
    Does the wording gives it away?

    "Routines for decrypting AirPlay streams"

    One such vendor is Vivi.io selling boxes from SolidRun running Vivi Box Server

    One can get firmware from here,
    it opens nicely with 7-zip.

    Most exciting bits are in image\root\
    Seems that years ago it was a project on Github (but no longer!)

    Code:

    Yes, the audio part, why there are receivers from ie Denon that have Airplay build in

    But not video/mirroring
