Wireless DLNA/AirPlay speakers - jonas.andero - 05-22-2014

I have a nice Sony wireless network speaker that I would like to use in the garden. It supports DLNA and AirPlay. I use Rdio addon for music only, no local files.

The speaker shows up as "Play using" but it doesn't work (it works fine to play Rdio stream to my other Xbmc instalation though). I realize that bluetooth is no option, but how about AirPlay? If I build with the PulseAudio option, can I some how make my Openelec machine to become an AirPlay transmitter and play to my speaker that acts as AirPlay target?

Yes, but only if you somehow happen to know how to write the code for the Airplay transmitter part.

Seems feasible?
