Hi Hydro,

1) The RPi3’s bluetooth module is compatible with most bluetooth speakers. However, we cannot guarantee a specific device to work, aside from the JBL Go which we use for testing. Also, there can always be dropouts with BT technology.

2) Yes, this is specifically the application we added in the 2.0 version of our Bluetooth plugin. Check the plugin’s description text for more info. You can either stream directly to the Pi or to all multiroom players with a custom Squeezebox channel for your phone.

3) Not sure I understand this question. You can only pair one device at a time. But you can pair one Pi with your phone and one with a speaker and stream your phone’s output to all players, including the BT-paired one.

For YouTube sound you can just use the built-in DLnA compatibility to stream with apps like AllConnect or BubbleUPnP to all Squeezebox players.

2nd Post: No, the Bluetooth plugin just handles audio streams, in- and output.
