Can't get Airplay to work

I can’t use Airplay to play sound to Kodi (CoreElec 9.0.3 on ODROID C2) with my Mac (macOS 14.5) or iPhone (iOS 12.3).

The Mac or phone will show Kodi and let me select it as output device but when I try to play any sound I only get an error message :frowning: I don’t see any message in the kodi.log with debug switched on.

Is there anything else I can try to debug?

I faced the same problem after upgrading to (presumably) 9.03
It worked before that.

Interesting. I had Airplay working sometimes in the past on different versions of Kodi on different hardware so I was not able to say when it stopped working and what it correlated with…

Doing some tests… Airplay works with a fresh install of 9.0.1.

…and it stops working after the automatic update to 9.0.3.

After trying also with 9.0.2 which didn’t work in the beginning but started working after I switched Airplay off an on a couple of times it also started working on 9.0.3 :slight_smile: :100:

The best way seems to be to switch off Aiplay in Kodi, wait until it vanishes in the Airplay device list and then switch it back on. Now it works :woman_shrugging:

It does require quite a lot of off-on switching now but I could always get it to work so far…
