VNC sound

Sun Sep 14, 2014 8:57 pm

Is there anyway to get sound over vnc? I'd really like to use my ipad to play games on the pi but it would be preferable if they had sound.
Thanks in advance!

You will need to investigate VNC or RDP in conjunction with Pulse Audio, which is beyond my knowledge, .....

I assume you mean to stream audio from the raspberry pi to the device ( I use ios by the way ) which sounds like a good idea, but when I did some digging I couldn't find anything that really sounded like it would work ( I'm new so it might just be I don't understand it ) if you know of anyways to stream pi audio to the raspberry pi, preferably on startup that would be awesome.

Google for xrdp pulse audio sink and get confused, but a great way to learn :D

Considering all the issues you have encountered here http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewt ... 15#p610715

The DOSbox clone for iOS seems to be the only solution, which I did mention in the thread........ :shock:

I googled xrdp pulseaudio sink and it seems to be for another vnc-esque program. Would it translate over to vnc?

You can use our rPlay to mirror iPad games to Pi, not sure if this is what you want.

A big trend I am seeing in audio streaming from the raspberry pi is that it is often used for streaming specific files and not just the entire thing going through Wikipedia the page on xrdp didn't look all that helpful it looked mostly like a change log. Do you think I should set up an xrdp server on the raspberry pi and use an rdp app to connect via ipad? If so I might need some help connecting on the ipad and setting the pulseaudio server up on the pi. Also if it helps I have found an airplay reciever for ios on the emu4ios store. Thanks!

I have a new idea. Could I possible plug headphones into the audio jack of the pi, while it is headless? I plan to use it with a mobile battery pack so it wouldn't be that bad. If this works I think it would be the best and simplest options. Unfortionally I don't have access to a working pair right now but there are some coming in the mail so if you don't know it I'll update one I get some. Keep in mind I'll be running x11vnc to.

It works but, just one question is there any volume control on the pi? It's incredibly loud

At the command prompt type

alsamixer

this will pop up the Volume GUI, use the up down arrow keys to adjust volume
