I'll have a play. Incidentally, there's no settings link for your
ShairTunes2 (fork) line in the list when I click on the Plugins tab in
the LMS web settings GUI. I have to click on settings for some other
plugin, then select ShairTunes2 (fork) from the drop down list. Once I'm
there I notice the info hint for 'Airplay latency (ms)' reads: "Set the
duration of the AirPlay buffer. Low value means faster start but more
shuttering". Can I use this value therefore to influence the delay
before the iOS device starts its video playback?
