  • Need help getting mono mp3 speech file to play through AirplaySpeaker

    I've been working on using Amazon Polly to do speech on HS3. My system is a Pi 3B running HS3 Standard. Amazon Polly produces mono mp3 files encoded at 22,050Hz. I convert that to 44,100 Hz stereo using the following command.
    avconv -i "$1_t" -y -ar 44100 -ac 2 "$1"
    The only difference between this and when using flite is the added -ac 2 to make sure the mono file is converted to stereo. Local playback using speak.sh is done using mpg123 and that work great as does sound sent to HSTouch.

    The only thing that's not working is getting sound to my Mac. The mac is running 5KPlayer which will act as an Airplay receiver. I have no issues sending music from my iPhone to my Mac running the 5KPlayer.

    AirplaySpeak does see the Mac and thinks it an AppleTV which is correct for the 5KPlayer.

    Here is the results from the AirplaySpeak log.
    This is when it connects to the 5KPlayer
    Code:

    All my Pi's are tied up right now so I can't run Airplay for the Pi which I know works. If everything looks OK then I guess I'll just have to wait till I pickup a Pi Zero and the speaker pHAT and bring up Airplay for the Pi.

    Looks like this is a problem with the 5KPlayer. It works fine using the Airplay app and the Pimoroni SpeakerpHat.

    BTW, is you use the SPeakerpHAT DON'T use the speaker that comes with it. Fine a good 2 to 5W speaker and use it. The one that comes with it sounds like s&*$ to put it bluntly.

    I'm using an old no amplified PC speaker and it should very good all things considered. I'm going to open it up and put the Pi Zero W inside for a nice clean package. You can also pick up some cheep bookshelf speakers and use them. If you want stereo Pimoroni has other pHAT and HATs for the Pi you can use as well.
