Hello, I’ve been following this topic recently. Initially trying out various “Instructables” for bluetooth before implementing the solution here “wget http://paste.osmc.io/raw/qiyekuvafe -O- | sudo sh”.
My setup is as follows:
Raspberry Pi 2
Everything works extremely well for me with the only exception being a lack of volume control from either andriod phone or OSMC ( heard Sam say it should work with Android but i’ve had no luck at all with several different devices running Android 4.2 and above). Suprisingly sound is working with great effect from my Hifiberry while running bluetooth from phone to the rpi ( system/audio Alsa bluetooth setting enabled) and with the Hifiberry set as the overlay in rpi config settings, everything else should be as default, i’ve not messed with much else besides number of channels/sound quaility and visual settings.
So for me the only thing I would like to see a solution for is external volume control through bluetooth ( have to use the volume on the amp currently).
I have a weird problem. I want to stream audio to OSMC from my smartphone. Everything is working, but I can only get output from the analogue port. I just cannot get audio output from the HDMI port. I tried to install alsa-utils to change the audio sink but nothing changed. Does somebody have the same problem and knows how to solve it?
Great work! I use and follow this project (osmc) since it’s beginning.
I’m a big fan of what you guys are doing here!!
I tested my self this feature with an old usb dongle… it’s kind of slow, it has some delays, maybe because is not BT 4.0.
Is there any chance to have this running with PI3 BT driver that is in development ?
It would be nice to use the built-in pi3 BT for A2DP
You mean with the built-in one cause with the dongle works already.
It is very logical, if onboard BT works this should work as well, but the reason why I asked is that I saw some comment from Sam saying that built-in BT will support file transfer…I tough only that …
Anyone here been able to connect a Windows 10 laptop ?
I can stream from my android phone flawlessly, but can’t even connect to my Asus UX32A laptop with Windows 10…
I’m using the Pi3 with inbuilt bluetooth.
I have no problem at all. Acer Switch 11 with Core i3. Win 10 x64. I did of course had to enable discovery again via MyOsmc and I also enabled “allow devices to find this computer” on my laptop. Works fine.
I tried the new release yesterday and am able to pair my Pi 3 with my phone.
Once starting to stream from my phone to OSMC I hear the music but it starts immediately to stutter, and sounds quicker than the original music is. Sometimes it simply stops until I stop the playback on my phone and start it again (with the same result).
I have no issues with other bluetooth devices (bluetooth speaker, car audio,…) when streaming from my phone.
The app I’m streaming from is Amazon Prime Music on Android. Streaming from another app (like YouTube) seems to work, but I guess there are different codecs/bitrates involved causing the issue.
I checked the kodi.log in debug but it does not show anything. But journalctl contains the appended output.
The lines at the end (“frame assembly failed”) repeat quite often so I took only some of them.
Hope that helps finding the issue.
Thanks again for the great support!
