First time poster here; please be kind!

I have 2 docker apps running well, Forked-DAAP and Logitech Media Server (LMS).

LMS has the ShairTunes2 plugin which makes my Squeezebox players look like AirPlay devices and this works fairly well using iTunes to send music to my Squeezebox.

 

I am trying to get DAAP to recognise the Squeezeboxes as AirPlay devices and have edited the conf file thus:

...

# AirPlay/Airport Express device settings
# (make sure you get the capitalization of the device name right)
airplay "Family Room" {
        # forked-daapd's volume goes to 11! If that's more than you can handle
        # you can set a lower value here
#       max_volume = 11

...

 

I have also tried "Family Room 00:04:20:12:75:03" which is how the ShairTunes2 plug in reports the Squeezebox.

 

Neither configuration results in the "Airplay" devices being visible in Forked-DAAP. Unfortunately I don't own any real Airplay devices, however my Apple TV  and Chromecast audio dongle both show up as a devices in Forked-DAAP.

 

Is my configuration correct and should this work?

 

TIA

If the container is in bridge network mode, there is most likely a port that needs to be mapped. Google for which ports airplay use.

It’s still broken for me, what is everybody else seeing?

 

 Almost a year later, large artwork still seems to crash it 😥

 

 I tried to build it in a Ubuntu VM,  but that’s turning out to be pretty hard..

It's a shame that this doesn't work, there have been a few updates so I was hopeful but it seems worse than before! Daapd is just so unstable the most I've managed to get it to play is 2 tracks before crashing, now it only manages about 5 seconds! It's always greyed out in the remote app and needs a reboot every time I want to use it and I have to reboot for it to show up in iTunes! And now all the playlists have disappeared! It did use to happily play internet radio all day, but no more it just crashes before I have a chance to select airplay speakers! So frustrating because if it worked it would be perfect for my needs and stop me having to have my iMac permanently running with iTunes all the time! I guess the dev doesn't have the time to fix it and I wish I had the know how I'd then offer to help!

Try an experiment for me. Change the setup so daapd only has a few music files in its path, and see if those few files play ok. Then add a couple more folders, keeping track of what is in those folders, specifically if there are other files besides music files, like album graphics.

 

My suspicion is that daapd handles files it can't parse poorly, and instead of skipping them, it crashes.

Ok will do. Give me a couple of days (if I play with it for much longer they'll be a divorce!) and I'll get back to you! :)
