  • 2021 Mar 8 Stickied 𝐇𝐄𝐋𝐏𝐃𝐄𝐒𝐊 thread - Boot problems? Display problems? Networking problems? Need ideas? Get help with these and other questions! 𝑳𝑶𝑶𝑲 𝑯𝑬𝑹𝑬 𝑭𝑰𝑹𝑺𝑻
    Sonos and Denon Heos seem like an option, but that is like $5,000+ to get to the same system I have. So I started looking at RPi, seems like there are a few solutions like Balena, HiFiBerry, Snapcast, Mopidy, but I am having trouble seeing if these have support for my needs above.
  • Is there a good way to Multi-room audio in 2021?
    I use mpdmpd with snapcast. You could also use mopidy instead of mpd for spotify support.
  • Sonobus: Open-source app for low latency peer-to-peer audio | 2021-02-15
    That makes sense - I believe by default snapcast has a 1000ms buffer.

    I wonder if you can't grab the latency correction factor from snapcast in real-time, and somehow apply it to you video stream as well? This has been raised before it seems [1], and in another issue, the snapcast author recommends looking at RTP based streaming instead of snapcast [2].

    Seems like snapcast may not be ideal for this after-all :)
