We’d like to add Bluetooth audio streaming to the App Store shortly, but first we’d like to get some feedback and testing done.
Make sure your system is fully up to date, and then run the following commands:
echo "deb http://apt.osmc.tv jessie-devel main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/a2dp.list sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install a2dp-app-osmc sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/a2dp.list
- Pairing is sometimes problematic. This is being worked on.
- If you experience stutters or dropouts, it may be your dongle. I personally experienced this with a couple of Bluetooth dongles and had better luck with other ones. We sell an official dongle here which works well.
- Users often report problems with stuttering / dropouts using the Raspberry Pi 3’s internal Bluetooth adapter. While we hope this changes in the future and we plan to support as much hardware as possible, we can’t guarantee a good experience with this adapter at this time. Our development and testing is involved around [this] (https://store.osmc.tv/product/bluetooth-dongle/) dongle, and this is the one we officially support.
- This is testing, so the usual warnings apply
22nd April 2017: getting closer to a stable release; but this still only works with a limited number of adapters/dongles. If you experience stuttering or dropouts, please read the above advice first.
