hey memphiz,

thanks for clearing things out. I thought it's also the audio which is not working.
Don' get me wrong I really liked the feature of airplaying video to kodi.
But as I remember videos and pictures aren't working since iOS 8 and also metadata wasn't working as expected (for me) with iOS8 and kodi.
I'm also not a fan of hacky solutions, but I think many people would even enjoy "only" audio without metadata in kodi.
I can imagine that it's not that easy like in a standalone program because it's built-in to kodi.
But for me it sounds like it will take a long time to finish the "complete" solution with handshake and it's not said to be ever finished?!
I don't want to stress you and it sounds that you are the "airplay-guy" in kodi so it must be many work for you and I really appreciate it.
Also I know it's my fault that I pressed the update button (of iOS ;-) )

Another thought: could it be possible to make an extra airplay addon with only audio enabled?
I'm not deep enough in addons, do they need to be written in Python?
Sure I can compile shairport-sync in OSMC at my rpi2 but then kodi and shairport always fight for alsaaudio device.

For me, audio, video and pictures work well with IOS8. I frequently use pictures, which is a nice function to project photos to the television. Obviously, I may be minority and will trust memphiz' judgement whether and how to take things forward for IOS9.

Same for me. I use airplay with kodi only for video and that works well with iOs8.

For instance, I use the iPhone applications of different TV network for replay and video on demand (French network Canal plus and French public TV FranceTvPluzz).

So I hope that the amazing développers who work on kodi source will find solution as they found for iOs8.

Thanks

I'm afraid its not the same. Ssip96 and I use airplay for video and not only audio.

and you get big kudos for that from me.
Strange that it didn't work for me (video) on iOS 8. May also be a distro problem (OSMC, OE, etc.)
Off-topic: got my system now "perfect" to fulfill my needs. A rpi2 with kodi for movies etc. and my cubox with shairport-sync (airplay audio only iOS 9) and spotify connect also on cubox. Because I changed from Iphone to Android last days I really enjoy spotify connect on arm. Airplay on Android never really works for me.

No. Airplay mirroring has never been implemented in Kodi. Doesn't matter what iOS version you have.

Didn't kodi previously utilise shareplay? Or am I deluded?

Just wondering if these dev paths are a duplicated effort?

Can someone compile and test this solution for osmc rbp1 (https://github.com/juhovh/shairplay/comm...da72673f)?

On my OSMC armv6l-libshairplay-osmc is installed in version 0.1.3.

It would be great if theres a solution to get airplay working again.

Would it be possible to keep current implementation of airplay (to support videos and photos with IOS8 and earlier) and - in parallel - implement shairplay for Openelec / Linux to support IOS9 audio. Does this make sense and is that what OSMC has implemented?
