Shairport Sync emulates an AirPort Express for the purpose of streaming audio
from iTunes, iPods, iPhones, iPads and AppleTVs. Audio played by a Shairport
Sync-powered device stays synchronised with the source and hence with similar
devices playing the same source. Thus, for example, synchronised multi-room
audio is possible without difficulty. (Hence the name Shairport Sync, BTW.)
Shairport Sync does not support AirPlay video or photo streaming.

2017-12-21 - Bill Peck <> 3.1.7-1
- New upstream release
- In recent versions of iOS (11.2) and mac OS (10.13.2), when play
is resumed after a pause, the volume level is not always restored,
and, if software volume control is being used, Shairport Sync plays
at full volume. This issue has been addressed by storing the last
airplay volume setting when a play session ends and using it as a
default when a new play session begins.
- Better AirPlay synchronisation. Older versions of Shairport Sync
added an 11,025 frame (0.25 seconds) offset to all the latencies
negotiated with the sender. This seems now only to be correct for
iTunes and ForkedDaapd sources, but incorrect for AirPlay sources.
Accordingly, the offset is only added for iTunes and ForkedDaapd.
The result is better sync with videos, e.g, YouTube, while iTunes
and ForkedDaapd synchronisation is unaffected.
- A bug in the hardware volume control affected output devices that
have hardware mixers but that do not allow the volume to be set in dB.
One example is the Softvol plugin in ALSA. Shairport Sync failed
silently when presented with such a device when hardware volume
control is enabled: the volume events have no effect. The bug has been
fixed by adding two missing lines of code to the init() function in
audio_alsa.c. Thanks to Jakub Nabaglo for finding and fixing the bug.
- A number of bug fixes due to belboj. Many thanks for these!
- Enhancements to the handling of quit requests by threads, thanks(again) to belboj!
2017-09-13 - Bill Peck <> 3.1.2-1
- New upstream release
- The default value for the alsa setting mute_using_playback_switch has
been changed to "no" for compatability with other audio players on the
same machine. Because of this you may need to unmute your audio device
if you are upgrading from an older release.
- Fixed bugs that made Shairport Sync drop out or become unavailable when
playing YouTube videos, SoundCloud streams etc. from the Mac.
2017-08-20 - Bill Peck <> 3.1.1-1
- A bug in the sndio backend has been fixed that caused problems on some
versions of Linux.
- A change has been made to how Shairport Sync responds to a TEARDOWN request,
which should make it respond better to sequences of rapid termination and
restarting of play sessions. This can happen, for example, playing YouTube
videos in Safari or Chrome on a Mac.
- Choosing soxr interpolation in the configuration file will now cause
Shairport Sync to terminate with a message if Shairport Sync has not been
compiled with SoX support.
- Other small changes.
2017-08-17 - Bill Peck <> 3.1-1
- new backend offering synchronised PulseAudio support. 
- new optional loudness and convolution filters
- improvements in non-synchronised backends
- enhancements, stability improvements and bug fixes
2017-02-24 - Mike Brady <> 2.8.6
- Many changes including 8- 16- 24- and 32-bit output
