Pi Zero W bluetooth headless audio: aplay working, others don't

Mon Jul 02, 2018 11:02 am

Hi, i'm trying to setup a headless pi0 with bluetooth speakers; after pairing installing etc , i' m able to hear sound playing a WAV via aplay, with this command:

aplay -D bluealsa:HCI=hci0,DEV=XX:XX:XX:XX:XX,PROFILE=a2dp song.wav

As I want to play mp3 files, have tried with mpg123 and mpg321 with the '"-a" parameter with no luck

Afeter, I disabled the HW device in config.txt and tried the play command (sox),as well as mplayer ... but no cigar (screen shows decoding progression, but there is no sound)

Any hint here, please?
Thanks in advance
