Bluetooth Speaker On Raspberry Pi

Tue Mar 20, 2018 9:25 pm


I have recently tried connecting my Bluetooth speaker to my Raspberry Pi to stream some audio.
I managed to successfully pair both, but for some reason it seems like the Raspberry isn't transmitting the audio.

*I am using Raspbain

If anyone has suggestions, I'll be happy to hear.

Thank you

... with Desktop? Did you right-click on the speaker symbol on the taskbar and select your bluetooth speaker?

Same for me...
I've tried to connect my Headphone Phillips in BT to hear video played by TBOPlayer. Video OK, no sound.
I use RPi 3 with Debian Stretch from NOOBS, I've searched for solutions in different tutorials, BT is working, Headset paired, enabled, selected bluetooth speaker on the taskbar , nothing.
I've read that it was a possible bug in Stretch, but cannot find it.
I have an error when trying to enable A2DP and HSP doesn't work.
I've re-installed without success.
Now, I'm downloading latest version of Debian Stretch to try.
