I am using a Raspberry Pi 3 running the latest OSMC (last updated 2017-07-24) as a media center an in general anything works just fine and i love it.
Now, I want that media center to be somehow “portable” when only playing audio which means I want to connect a Bluetooth Speaker (specifically: UE BOOM) to the Pi’s very own Bluetooth device and use it as audio sink while the Pi/OSMC itself is the audio source.
I can connect the speaker in most of the cases either using myOSMC of via ssh (bluetoothctl) but it seems like I can’t set the Pi’s Blutetooth device as audio sink.
The only options I have in OSMC’s audio settings are:
PI: HDMI and Analogue
ALSA: Playback/recording through the PulseAudio sound server
ALSA: PulseAudio Sound Server
I tried to set every single option as audio output while playing music with OSMC having the speaker connected but none of the seem to work.
To me it feels like I am missing the right audio output option. Is that possible?
I also tried a lot of different manuals that I found using google search which I thought could be solutions but none of them did the trick.
Can someone give me a hint?
Thanks in advance…
