Raspbian Stretch bluez-alsa A2DP profile

Thu Aug 17, 2017 11:03 am

Hi,

wir Raspbian Stretch there we get bluez-alsa.
For Stretch, we are using the bluez-alsa package to make Bluetooth audio work with ALSA itself. PulseAudio is therefore no longer installed by default, and the volume plugin on the taskbar will no longer start and stop PulseAudio
Are there somewhere more detailed information what the switch from PulseAudio to bluez-alsa means and what are the advantages now?

Many users use Pi as an A2DP device for streaming Audio. Is there somewhere a documentation how to set this up with bluez-alsa? Anyboy out there having this done on the Pi with Raspbian Stretch?

Thanks

This looks like a good place to start: https://github.com/Arkq/bluez-alsa. I haven't tried it yet.
