I can see my HomePod in the list of sinks.
I can set the home as the default sink

But say playing a WAV file (as a test hangs??) e.g.

On the same RPI I have forked-daapd working perfectly streaming audio to the HomePod (so I believe the connectivity is perfect) !!

What I specifically want to do is use librespot to publish the HomePod locally around my network on Spotify and separately
I can see that LibReSpot using using PulseAudio as its output and roughly hangs in the same place.

So, basically I am wondering if anyone has successful managed to get the RAOP support in Pulseaudio to work - I did look at the
source of forked-daapd and they seem to have their own RAOP codebase so possible they have forked the RAOP code for their own use.

Anyway, any help would be great.

Which pulseaudio version are you using? Did you try current git or PA 13.99? There have been quite a few changes in the RAOP code since 13.0. If that does not work, please open an issue at
