Forum Spotlight: Use Your Mac, PC, Android Phone, or Raspberry Pi with AirPlay


iFans forum member dancerdudes is at it again, this time with an impressive guide outlining how to use your Mac, PC, Android Phone, or Raspberry Pi with AirPlay.

Using various third-party applications you can use almost any device as an AirPlay speaker, but the gem of this tutorial is the ability to use your Raspberry Pi micro-computer to turn any ordinary pair of speakers into AirPlay speakers. All it takes is $40 and about a dozen Terminal commands to set up a household AirPlay-enabled speaker system. This is a bargain compared to store-bought AirPlay speakers that can cost upwards of $600.

Head over to the comments of this story for the full guide, and if you’re so inclined, check out dancerdudes’ other tutorials; Custom App Icons Without a Jailbreak, and Create Blank(ish) Icons Without a Jailbreak.
