Since audio streaming through bluetooth is not currently working (see [TESTING] Bluetooth audio streaming (A2DP) - #794 by sam_nazarko) I was searching an alternative way to listen to the OSMC playback wirelessly. I stumbled upon SoundWire, a nice android app that would capture the audio through ALSA and stream it to my phone, but… It’s not capturing anything. From what I can see, it doesn’t capture nothing at the source. I’ve just found this other thread: I finally found a way to stream audio from OSMC (RPi) to your smartphone (Android) over WiFi/LAN but it relays on a bluetooth audio too, which is not enabled right now…
What can I do?
Well as audio routing is not the easiest thing to do you might just want to wait for a Bluetooth fix from OSMC team. Try if the current provided fix works.
I’ve tried it, but unfortunately it doesn’t seem to work.
Connection to bluetooth headset is buggy, I was able to establish a connection only using
bluetoothctland this sequence:
- agent on
- scan on
- trust device_id
- pair device_id
(wait for connection to fail)
- disconnect device_id
- connect device_id
Even with the headset connected, no option appeared in Kodi to choose the headset as audio output.
Also, SoundWire is still not working; pulseaudio shows everything in order, but no audio is router trough it…
