    Streaming from piCore/LMS to HomePod mini

    Is this possible? I searched the web but did not find any results.

    Are there workarounds with plugins for example from philippe?

    Thank you for hints.

    Did you try Philippe's AirPlay Bridge plugin?

    Not yet, did not think about it because the piCore has to send streams like an Apple airplayer.
    I know it can receive airplay with this plugin but send also???

    AirPlay Bridge sends to AirPlay devices.

    Edit:
    You were probably thinking of the ShairTunes plugin.
    See the plugin descriptions in the LMS plugin list.

    The plugin seems to work and finds my 2 Airplay-devices: HomePod and Apple-TV.
    But they show not up as players in LMS, so no streaming to them. WiFi and bluetooth on the Pi are on as I can see in the browser on piCore-site.
    Any advice for further action?

    Edit: Now they show up with the same IP as piCore-Player/Squeezelite. But I cannot play music to them.

    2. Edit: Now it works! Rebooted the Pi, changed nothing, but everything with this HomePod-player works like with the squeezelite-player.

    Now I wonder if it is possible to stream stereo to 2 HomePods.

    Thanks again to Paul to direct me to this plugin and a very big thank you to Philippe.

    Don‘t have a Mac to try, but the second Homepod Mini is ordered already and I can collect it tomorrow morning.

    Edit: Collected the 2. HomePod and tried both as stereo pair: No Stereo from them, just 2 separate players with mono sound. :-(

    BTW: TuneBlade makes it possible to stream from a Windows-PC to the Homepods, also no stereo.
