    Hi,

    I am lacking the option of selecting (portable) bluetooth speaker for existing HW, these are very suitable for many of the rooms that are listed, like kitchen, bathroom (water protection), terrace etc…
    Given most house plans, a suitable situated player should be able to connect with a BT speaker without a major problem (5-15m depending on walls etc).

    Such a solution would really be woth paying for.

    Best regards
    Per

      Hi Per,

      Thank you for your comment. It is our first version of our configurator and work is still in progress. Therefore, we appreciate your feedback that helps us to improve it.
      We are actually working on a Bluetooth solution for Max2Play at the moment which might lead to another easy-to-use Max2Play plugin for bluetooth devices. As soon as it is ready for launch, we will add the Bluetooth option to our configurator.

        Given that the Pi 3B has built in Bluetooth, I think this could become a very popular plugin. I would love to use it for my garden, and a friend would love to be able to use their BT speakers in their bedroom as he doesn’t have power sockets there

      There is a Beta Version of the Bluetooth Addon for testing if you are interested: http://www.max2play.com/en/portfolio/plugin-bluetooth-2/

      You should use the latest Max2Play based on Debian Jessie (Beta) from our download page. Make sure to Update Max2Play to the latest Beta on the settings page to get full support for the Bluetooth Addon.

    Hi, I have a multiroom configuration with 7 Rasp Pi. I have all kind of configurations (BT, RCA,Optical, USB, RCA, USB audio card).

    I just miss one functionality : a plugin to use the rasp and it’s audio as a Bluetooth speaker from a smartphone.
    basically it could play locally,.
    the must would be to connect by BT to the server and cast in multi room…

    Enjoy guys

      Hi Guillaum,

      connecting via Bluetooth and stream directly audio from your smartphone to the Raspberry Pi is already possible with the Bluetooth Plugin. This can be used to connect Bluetooth Speakers to the Raspberry but also connect a smartphone to stream audio (all Audioplayers must use “Pulse” as Audiooutput when using Bluetooth).

      Connecting via Bluetooth somehow directly to the Squeezebox Server and stream the content to all connected players is much more difficult – maybe this can be done with the waveinput-Plugin from Squeezebox Server (did not try this yet). Should be something like: configure Pulseaudio Bluetooth as input for Waveinput Plugin on Squeezebox Server.

      Thanks for your comment!
      Stefan
