View Full Version : Play music on SB Boom directly FROM Android device

2011-06-05, 04:27
I don't want to turn on my PC every time I want to listen my music on SBBoom.

Is it possible to play music which is loaded on Android phone (files are stored on phone's SD card :)) directly (via WIFI) to Squeezebox Boom device? What is the procedure (SW, setup) to do so?

Best regards and thank you for your answers.

No, you can't send the audio via wifi from your phone to the Boom. Your phone can't send the data using the protocol (slimproto) that the Boom understands/requires. You could do it the old-fashioned way, and use a patch cord to connect the phone's headphone jack to the Boom's line-in jack, though obviously that limits where you can take the phone.

EDIT: I looked into it a little further and it seems the answer isn't really a categorical no. But the answer is the same as when you asked the same question a few months ago: http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?p=602897

I know it is not a categorical no and yes I asked the same question few months ago, which in "technology age" means years ago. I tought that in the meantime someone did something in this direction. It sure would be a great App.

Best regards

If want something now but I think it is a complicated solution (which needs a local SBS server) would be to get Airplay on your phone from DoubleTwist http://www.doubletwist.com/ and install the Airplay for SBS see http://blog.stuart.shelton.me/archives/762

How about a bluetooth receiver plugged into the line-in of the Boom?
