    Hi Thibault, 

    Depending on which player you have you may be able to connect your computer/phone via AUX cable, and have the audio play from your computer to your player that way. 

    Otherwise you would have to use bluetooth.

    Hi Brandon,

    So you confirm that it is impossible to broadcast sound from my computer / android smartphone via wifi ?

    Because I already told that I don't want to use bluetooth, and I certainly don't want to embarrass myself with a cable...

     

    Thank you for your answer,

    Hi Thibault,

    Yes. Our Bluesound Players do not have a way to accept a local audio stream, with exception to Bluetooth and the Android or iOS Play from Device feature which only allows you to access audio files on the device.

    Hi Brandon,

    Thank you for your support.

    Do you know if it can technically be done (at least on a computer) ? I mean can the bluesound windows app can create some sort of tunnel to transfer all other sounds through wifi ?

    Thank you in advance for your answer.

    Hi Thibault,

    For using your Desktop computer to stream audio over WiFi, Some people have had allot of luck with using the windows program `Stream What You Hear`  and selecting tools and http live streaming . They then go to the control panel on the player and paste in the URL Under `Play Internet URL`

    This may work for your use case but It is not officially supported. 

    VLC has a built in audio and video streamer as well, http://www.howtogeek.com/118075/how-to-stream-videos-and-music-over-the-network-using-vlc/ 

    Again this may work for your use case but it is not officially supported.


    There is no native way in the Bluesound app to do this.
