Kodi's airplay doesn't work. Is there a way to get kodi's airplay working with iOS 8+? If it's not possible with kodi, is there another good alternative for iOS 8+?


Yes and/or no.

Yes, there is a good solution for streaming sound over AirPlay with shairport-sync. You don't need Kodi for that.

No, there is still no good solution for video streaming. :(

  • i tried shairport from this project makezine.com/projects/raspberry-pi-airplay-speaker and it sounded horrible with a very high pitch – Yuri Borges Aug 16 '17 at 14:13
  • but I see that you pointed you another repository. I used github.com/hendrikw82/shairport.git – Yuri Borges Aug 16 '17 at 14:14
  • The one you pointed out seems to be much more recent. Right now I'm trying OSMC and if it doesn't work I'll try the repository you pointed out. – Yuri Borges Aug 16 '17 at 14:15
  • Shairport-sync has the ability to synchronize speakers and allows for multi-room streaming from iTunes. As I also forked the repository for my own project I know that it does not alter the sound in any way. So I suggest you check your speaker. Also don't forget to set the volume to 0.0dB in alsa-mixer. – kwasmich Aug 16 '17 at 14:25
  • OSMC worked. The lasted rasbpian with Kodi didn't. I'll stick to OSMC for now. – Yuri Borges Aug 16 '17 at 14:34
