Hardware

Air Player requires a Raspberry Pi 2, 3 or 4. Note that a Pi 3 or 4 is recommended because of performance reasons.

There are some restrictions:

  • Only the first HDMI port is supported
  • On the Raspberry Pi 4, the panel should have the same resolution as the monitor
  • On the Raspberry Pi 4, mouse is not supported

Performance

Air Player on the Raspberry Pi can run up to full HD (1920x1080). However the frame rate will not be high on full HD, approximately 15 FPS on a Raspberry Pi 3 and 25 FPS on a Raspberry Pi 4. For higher frame rates we recommend to use a screen with a lower resolution or use Air Player for desktop.
