I want to stream audio from my phone and other devices to my RPi 3 B (the "old" version, not B+) using bluetooth.
To achieve this, I followed (more or less) this tutorial:
So far it works, BUT:
As I experienced some stuttering I further investigated and found out that many people seem to have the same problem and turning off wifi seems to be the solution preferred by most. But this is not an option for me.
I noticed that stuttering only occurs when I'm initiating the bluetooth connection from my phone, but not when I initiate it via bluetoothctl.
- Activate bluetooth on phone, tap my RPi (on the phone) to connect to it ---> stuttering audio
- Start bluetoothctl, connect <myPhonesMAC> ---> flawless audio (even after exiting bluetoothctl) with activated wifi
Does anyone have an explanation for this? Where's the difference between both ways?
And since it (apparently) CAN work just fine, how do I have to reconfigure bluetooth in a way that both ways of connecting work fine?
