The audio/shairport-sync port

shairport-sync-4.3.3pre1 – AirPlay audio player (cvsweb github mirror)


Shairport Sync is an AirPlay audio player. It plays audio streamed from
iTunes, iOS, Apple TV and macOS devices and AirPlay sources such as Quicktime
Player and ForkedDaapd, among others.

Audio played by a Shairport Sync-powered device stays synchronised with the
source and hence with similar devices playing the same source. In this way,
synchronised multi-room audio is possible for players that support it, such as

| Running ${PKGSTEM} on OpenBSD

shairport-sync requires avahi-daemon(8) to be running first. To start it at
boot time, the rc.conf.local(8) pkg_scripts line can be edited as follow:

    rcctl enable messagebus avahi_daemon shairport_sync
    rcctl order messagebus avahi_daemon shairport_sync

Follow sndio(7) Authentication if both dedicated and your own user shall be
able to play audio at the same time, e.g. on a desktop system:

    install -D -p -o _shairport -m 0600 ~/.sndio/cookie ${HOME_DIR}/.sndio/cookie
