I am running the latest version of OSMC with Kodi 17.x on a rpi3. I want to stream music to a BT speaker. Is this supposed to work out of the box in this version? I am connected to the BT speaker -no problem there- and I have selected in Audio output “Alsa: Playback/recording through the Pulse audio sound server”. But no sound comes through the speaker despite the fact that it is paired and connected to the rpi3. I also notice that when the Pulseaudio sound server is running it creates havoc with the mediaserver as a whole, everything slows, video streams are super sluggish if they work at all, one can’t play any music, click on a song and it does not even start, the counter sits a 0 forever. I find this all very surprising as a2dp works very well in Linux.
So, please forgive that I don’t have logs etc., my question is simple, is streaming to BT speakers/BT audio systems supposed to work out of the box?
p.s. I tried connecting using the pi’s BT, and with two different external dongles nothing works.
