I am trying to "fuse" my raspberry pi zero W (running Raspbian Stretch) and my smsl sa-36a plus amplifier/bluetooth receiver together as a part of a media center.
My problem is the following:
-bluetooth is paired
-smsl is connected as audio device (in system tray this audio device is selected)
-sound DOES work from browser, but
-sound does NOT work from any other app (tested mpd, and to rule out misconfig I also tested qmmp).
Before rolling back to my "clean" OS backup, I tried messing around with pulse (which, if I am not mistaken is not necessary with stretch). pactl was not showing BT sinks - I am not sure, though, how sound worked (works) from browser then?!
I am greatful for any help.
P.S. Sorry if it is a newb question, I am relatively new to linux...
