Bluetooth Speaker

Fri Feb 17, 2017 1:36 pm

Hi Guys
new to the forumn and fairly new to the pi... (I have a Rpi3)
need to stream music with MPC to a bluetooth speaker
I connect to the speaker with Bluetoothctl and it connects. I configured mpd.conf as:

audio_output {
type "pulse"
name "My Pulse Output"
server "127.0.0.1" # optional
Sink "bluez_sink.12_34_56_8B_1A_7D"
}

but nothing comes from the speaker, and no error from MPC/MPD... any help?

Thanks, from there it (sort of) works, but no way to make it work with mpc/mpd...

I think you might need to change the mpc output settings from 'Alsa' to 'PulseAudio'.

Got it working on VLC, I guess I'll bear with VLC since it can reproduce all formats I want...just need to check how it works headless
