xbmc(airplay) on mac cube (10.4.11) - rachorg - 2012-03-25 15:10

Congrats on releasing 11.0. Granted I am a newbie to xbmc. I'm trying to send airplay of a podcast from my macbook pro running Lion to an old ppc mac (cube) running 10.4.11.
The cube shows up in the airplay list on the macbook pro but when I try to select the cube I get the message :The Airplay device "XBMC (System.local)" is not compatible with this version of iTunes.

Am I missing something?

So close!

What iTunes version are you running?


RE: xbmc(airplay) on mac cube (10.4.11) - rachorg - 2012-03-26 01:40

The version of itunes on the mac pro is 10.6 (40)

Are you trying to stream music or a video?

might be that libshairport has issues on ppc (big endian is tricky when not handled right)... though fyi we will drop ppc support soon (as apples current development tools don't support ppc anymore)...

Understood but too bad as airplay was my single driving reason for trying xbmc.

Then you have to find a dev with a ppc for working the bugs out of libshairport. But tbh maybe its time for some replacement for the mac cube *ducking* Wink

Ouch <grin>.... Well.. I was hoping as that old cube was the quietest machine I've ever owned..
Maybe I should replace it with a Raspberry Pi?

Thanks for looking into this.

Might be a good and cheap replacement Wink

Hi,
I got the exact same error message from on Itunes while running Itunes 10.06 and XBMC both on WINDOWS 7 64 bits SP1. I'm trying to send audio (music) over AirPlay to XBMC 12.0 Alpha 4. CPU is Intel Core i3.
So I don't suppose ppc support has anything to do with my error message, yet I can't stream to XBMC either, with the same error message.

Buy the Raspberry Pi, put it inside the cube and pretend its the cube. No one has to know Wink

Post a log from XBMC on windows - activate debugging in settings->system->debugging and itunesdebug in advancedsettings.xml (see the wiki) before starting the log.
