Plays audio streamed from iTunes, iOS devices and third-party AirPlay
sources such as ForkedDaapd and others. Audio played by a Shairport
Sync-powered device stays synchronised with the source and hence with
similar devices playing the same source. In this way, synchronised
multi-room audio is possible without difficulty.
Shairport Sync does not support AirPlay video or photo streaming.
