    announce: ShairTunes2W - Airtunes on LMS (forked version with Windows support)

    But to repeat my question, is anyone actually using this, and if so what do you hear? And is there a way to tell the spec (44/16 or whatever) of the stream you're hearing?
    I’m the maintainer of the plugin. Audio is encoded to 44/16, for every test that I’ve ever logged and, I can check the code, but AFAIR, there are places where 44/16 is hard coded.

    [edit]: confirmed, the capabilities are hardcoded at 44/16

    Philippe, thanks, and apologies, I did realise you are the maintainer, so I certainly wasn't disputing your info.

    My enquiry is intended to see if there is some way to stream those higher-res Apple Music files, somehow, from an Apple device to my DAC32.

    It would be interesting, for example, to see if a 48/24 file really makes that much difference to my ears.

    But if the only way is via shairtunes, and that tops out at 44/16, so be it.

    I won't go the slippery slope of sample rate & resolution flame war, let's say that my signal processing engineering background tells me 48/16 is perfect and 44/16 is absolutely enough .

    If I can find the time, I'll see how AirPlay controllers react to device advertising 48 as a sample rate (in the mDNS TXT record https://nto.github.io/AirPlay.html)

    Thanks Phillipe. Slippery slopes are not for me, either. Will give this scheme a try and report back.

    Hi,

    i compiled the latest git version of lms for omnios/solaris and installed the ShairTunes2W Plugin.

    When i click on settings i get the following error:

    404 Not Found: plugins/Extensions/settings/plugins/ShairTunes2W/settings/basic.html

    Any clue, where i can fix that?

    Greetings Reiner

    You need a set of crypto libs for LMS, with specific versions 0.30 for RSA and 0.06 for CryptX. Normally use:

    cpan -T Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA
    cpan -T Crypt::Ed25519
    cpan -T CryptX

    but you need with version number:

    cpan -T TODDR/Crypt-OpenSSL-RSA-0.30.tar.gz
    cpan -T MIK/CryptX-0.060.tar.gz

    - on Solaris and a few debian - arm & aarch64 now, need to specify mirror -M https://cpan.metacpan.org before the lib name
    - on FreeBSD, use cshrc instead of bashrc
