    @heiner: Perhaps you can publish a list of your test devices incl. the compatibility test results?

    I have the same problem. Where can I find some log files explaining, what went wrong?

    @aschiller: the URL would be wavin:pulse, but this is not working for me.

    According to bpa, author of the wavePlugin, it seems nearly impossible to use his plugin with pulseAudio, when Squeezebox Server is running as a daemon: http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?49584-Announce-WaveInput-for-Linux&p=689002&viewfull=1#post689002

    @heiner: Maybe it’s possible to run Squeezebox Server as user „pi“?

    Definitely a +1 from me. Would be great to include Chromecast Audio or Record Players. Especially, because the Bluetooth plugin is really unstable for me (rpi3 with Google Pixel and ue Boom 2).

    https://iotsblog.wordpress.com/2016/02/25/wireless-streaming-vinyl-to-squeezebox/ is a great starting point.

    This is not straight forward working for Pulseaudio, unfortunately, especially for digital (S/PDIF) input.

    Update: I upgraded to a raspi3 with internal Bluetooth and now both connecting from the Pixel and to the UE Boom 2 works fine (although I did not have enough time for testing for testing streaming for more than a few seconds)

    Hello heinzelrumpel,

    besides the streaming buffer issues, can you recommend the external bluetooth adapter? Which brand is it?

    Hello Flysurfer,

    Upgrading to Beta-161219 did not solve my problem with streaming TO the LMS. But at least it helped streaming FROM the RPi to my UE Boom 2 speaker.

    I tried a Google Pixel (Android 7.1.1), an iPhone 5S (iOS 9.3.5), and an iPad Mini (iOS 6). Only the old iPad Mini showed a pairing dialog, when I clicked on the „Reconnect“ button in the max2play GUI.

    Playback on my Raspberry 2 B is choppy although the load average is below 3. Maybe the only solution would be to upgrade to a RPi 3 B?

    Maybe the WaveInput plugin plus an external USB soundcard is a better solution. So I could also connect a Chromecast Audio which might be more useful for streaming audio from Android.

    Perhaps this is possible via darkice/icecast2:

    – more: https://iotsblog.wordpress.com/2016/02/25/wireless-streaming-vinyl-to-squeezebox/

    But of course, would be nice if there was a simple m2p package for this.

    I would love this, too. I’d love to connect my stereo to the line-in of the RPi or a Chromecast Audio.

    I bought the m2p license just for the bluetooth connectivity, but I cannot get it working.

    I tried two different (old) bluetooth dongles. One is from Trust another one from Belkin.

    All of my BT devices are found and listet, but I get neither a popup on my phone (Google Pixel) nor do I get a connection to my BT speaker (UE Boom 2).

    1. I wonder which BT dongle would work or if I should switch to a Raspberry 3 with built-in BT. Is there a guarantee, that this will work? Is there a list of BT devices that are reported to work smoothly?
    2. Is it possible to stream BT in both directions at the same time, i.e. stream from my phone to the LMS and hear that sound synchronized between my BT speaker and my Squeezebox Radio?


    PS: Here’s my BT debug info:
