I’m loving Volumio so far.
There is one thing though I’m trying to implement that I could with my previous raspberry home brew mpd/shairport player but can’t on Volumio. If I’m currently playing something using mpd, I’d like the mpd song to stop once an airplayed song tries to play. Right now, if I were to try this on Volumio, shairport poop sout and just stops working.
On my old install, I was able to get mpd to stop when airplay starts by editing: /etc/init.d/shairport. I added this extra bit: --play_prog=“mpc stop”, and it would work pretty nicely. Volumio is using a newer version of shairport, so it’s a little different. I’ve edited the /etc/init.d/shairport file and made a similar change: /usr/local/bin/shairport -d -a “$NAME” -B “mpc stop”. " It sort of works but only on the first try. The second attempt causes shairport to poop out again.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
