I added wiki page to help getting started with the application: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/OwnTone

By default installer creates user owntone and configured daemon to run as owntone in /etc/owntone.conf. However, the service runs as user root.

I had to use systemctl edit owntone.service:

cat /etc/systemd/system/owntone.service.d/override.conf 
[Service]
User = owntone

Then I installed pipewire with pulse support. This allowed to play to Apple HomePod.

encountering this error trying to start owntone as of latest Arch (stable) update.

$ owntone -f owntone: error while loading shared libraries: libplist-2.0.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

libplist is at version 2.3.0-1 on my system. there was a rather large update today (for me).
