Wiim withdraw Apple Airplay casting from all their products

It may be a little late (I just saw this thread), but in the attachment in the first post it states that you can contact WiiM to add your device to a whitelist to retain the feature. If your WiiM already has been updated, though, you may be out of luck.
I went through the whitelist process (they asked for the MAC ID that can be found in device info) and airplay casting is actually back on. I’m not sure what their workaround is but mine is now working.

I submitted a support ticket, which is pending. Hopefully they can restore this functionality for me.
 
Indeed moderators also active in this forum keep deleting posts from WIIM forum on this subject
What are you on about? We have not deleted a single post in this thread. Be careful of the claims you make around here. :mad:
 
Adam, I suspect he means deleting them at the WiiM forums, and it’s just clumsy wording.

Apologies if I’ve misunderstood.
While that remains a possibility he needs to be more precise about who he is accusing. Secondly we really don’t want other forum drama brought here. So I had two reasons to react negatively to his post. Maybe he will get the message. ;)
 
Given the use cases mentioned, I’m not sure why people don’t just use Bluetooth.
I loathe entirely the way Bluetooth allows the transmitting device to function as a preamp with volume control. Can’t possibly count the number of times the volume in my car was cranked up to 11 because my wife doesn’t even consider the relationship between the radio and her phone. It’s just another setting that has the potential to go wrong.

I don’t use it, apart from headphones, where it’s far better to control volume at source.

For me, I view the WiiM streamers as bit-perfect streamers which are transparent the source (apart from the Mini).

The idea of ‘casting it into a soundbar…just buy a Mini and attach it to the soundbar.

99% of when I’ve seen people using it to cast, I’m not sure lossless audio is necessarily going to be a huge impact.
 
Indeed WIIM will whitelist your device. It would have been great to know in advance but thank you @WiiM Support @WiiM Team My Airplay is again working post firmware update
So based on this latest firmware update the problem has been satisfactory resolved.

We can close this thread on a happy note. :)
