This is a first build of a component to stream music from foobar2000 to AirPort Express (or other AirPlay-enabled devices).
It is just a preview (to tease you guys ).
It doesn’t support compression and encryption yet.
And you cannot control volume on remote speakers.
And there’s also a huge (about 2 seconds) delay comparing to local playback.
And what it does have? Well, a tiny menu item called AirPlay under Playback menu. When you check a discovered station under AirPlay menu, foobar starts streaming music to it.
Also there’s an API for future integration with TouchRemote to allow renderer selection (like iTunes does).
And that’s it, for now
Of course, it requires Bonjour installed. But you already have one, right?
And though it doesn’t support compression yet, it already requires QuickTime Player to be installed.
This time is written in pure C++, so no .NET framework needed. Everything else seems to be linked statically, and no additional references are required.
Got here? Still wanna try?
Here you go: foo_airplay 0.1.0.0!
