With the release of v162 I am now able to install Shairport-Sync, but am unsure how to configure it, or if it requires configuration. I, perhaps wrongly, assumed that it would work immediately upon installation and reboot, but none of my devices are able to see the Pi as an Airplay device. I have attempted to edit the shairport-sync.conf file, but to no effect. I have also tried to manually start the service, also with no change. I am using a Raspberry Pi Zero W and connecting via SSH on Wifi. Am I missing something very obvious, or should the Airplay point have appeared on my network after installation? My apologies if this is posted in the wrong location, or the answer is located elsewhere, as I have been unable to solve the issue.
Sharport-Sync should not require any additional configuration, unless 16bit output mode is not supported on the soundcard. Then config change required /usr/local/etc/shairport-sync.conf output_format = “S32”
Please check status of the service:
Which soundcard are you running, default RPi onboard?
