Hi everyone! I am using RPi 3 with Raspbian Stretch. I have been having issues playing audio over my bluetooth speaker. I am able to pair and connect to my bluetooth speaker, and I see it in the list of connected devices. But even after changing the default sink to this bluetooth speaker, I don't hear any sound.
The following bulleted points explain what's going on
1. Pairing is successful (bluetoothctl)
2. Connection is successful (bluetoothctl)
3. When trying to stream audio:
a. Using VLC: the tone is apparently played and I see the progress bar at the bottom of the VLC GUI reach completion, but I don't hear anything.
B. Using play command ( from sox : sudo apt-get install sox), the terminal appears to freeze, and no audio is streamed. The completion bar continues to remain at 0%. Again, obviously, I dont hear any sound.
I have tried a bunch of solutions: modifying audio.conf file, hiding the ALSA audio control bar, and quite a few others. I've been at this for over a week now. Please help me out..
