  1. You need to install pulseaudio-airplay-rtp package to see AirPlay 2 devices on your network.
  2. It seems that the package does not compile with the latest (1.4.4) tdb due to change in tdb header files. You may like to temporarily downgrade tdb to build pulseaudio-airplay: yay -U https://archive.archlinux.org/repos/month/extra/os/x86_64/tdb-1.4.3-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst (you can upgrade back to 1.4.4 again after the package has been built).

@prodicus It seems to be fixed by c49932d3.

Is anyone else getting notified that updating libpulse-airplay breaks a bunch of packages that depend on libpulse? I would think that since it supplies libpulse that shouldn't happen.

For example: installing libpulse-airplay (14.99.2+14+gd6dc500b7-1) breaks dependency 'libpulse' required by ffmpeg

Update: was able to install with yay -Syudd (-dd to ignore dependency checks). Everything still seems to work

Update2: scratch that. The system still doesn't recognize that pulseaudio is provided by this package. Running 'pacman -Syu' can't complete without reinstalling vanilla pulseaudio and libpulse, because the system thinks they're missing.

@felinira You are right, this should have been already upstreamed, but I do not see this happening like ever ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I don’t think that there is hope for PulseAudio mostly because I think that PA maintainers are a bunch of incompetent morons (read here if you’d like to know why). I have moved to PipeWire on my other computer and I’m not looking back.

Thanks! This works flawlessly. Can you explain why this is still necessary with pulseaudio 14? Shouldn't the patch be merged upstream?

This patched version of PulseAudio allows outputting sound to AirPlay 2 devices on the local network.
