Free portable AirPlay server implementation similar to ShairPort.
Currently only AirPort Express emulation is supported.
All the resources in this repository are written using only freely available information from the internet. The code and related resources are meant for educational purposes only. It is the responsibility of the user to make sure all local laws are adhered to.
First you need to install some dependencies, for example on Ubuntu you would write:
sudo apt-get install autoconf automake libtool sudo apt-get install libltdl-dev libao-dev libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev sudo apt-get install avahi-daemon
./autogen.sh ./configure make sudo make install
Notice that libao is required in order to install the shairplay binary, otherwise only the library is compiled and installed.
Fairplay handshake support
The library has experimental support for handling fairplay handshake (used in
for example screen mirroring) using a playfair library that is licensed under
GPLv3. This can be enabled by adding
--with-playfair to the
./configure command above.
Check available options with
Usage: shairplay [OPTION...] -a, --apname=AirPort Sets Airport name -p, --password=secret Sets password -o, --server_port=5000 Sets port for RAOP service --ao_driver=driver Sets the ao driver (optional) --hwaddr=address Sets the MAC address, useful if running multuple instances --ao_devicename=devicename Sets the ao device name (optional) --ao_deviceid=id Sets the ao device id (optional) -h, --help This help
Start the server with
shairplay, if you are connected to a Wi-Fi the
server should show as an AirPort Express on your iOS devices and Mac OS X
computers in the same network.
Notice that you need to have the airport.key file in your working directory when starting the shairplay service. It is not included in the binary for possible legal reasons.
Shairplay advertises over mDNS in the form 485D607CEE22@Dining Room Speakers where 485D607CEE22 is a MAC address. This is hardcoded to a nonsense value, which is not a problem so long as it's unique. However, if you run multiple Shairplay instances, iOS devices will only recognize one of them. To fix this, supply the --hwaddr option with different values on each device.
