Dual Displays on a Pi 4 using Air Manager Desktop

#1 Post by brianbarr » Mon Oct 19, 2020 9:11 pm

Per the wiki, air player for a Pi only supports one display. If I purchased the desktop version for linux and installed it on a Pi 4, would I be able to run Air Manager with two (reasonably sized) displays if I don't push the complexity too far?

If an AM 4.0 for desktop beta version for linux is made available I can certainly test this situation easily ...

The desktop version will not work on the Raspberry Pi, it is not compiled for ARM. But even if it would, it would be very slow.
With one display output you're able to reach a decent 30 FPS on a 1920x1080 monitor (with Air Player).
