    Bluetooth in?

    Is there a way we can steam the audio from a Bluetooth receiver to all lms end points?

    Yes, steam, that's what I meant. Stream for goodness sake auto spell, stream.

      Yes.

      For example - if your Bluetooth receiver is a Raspberry Pi then you can use that to receive the data and then it can forward it to LMS for LMS to send it elsewhere.
      pCP has this capability.
      There are other ways ... but you then need something to capture the received data and pass it in via something like WaveIn plugin.

        4lex, you have asked this before on christmas day 2020. And this was my reply:

        You replied that it worked, so I suggest that you repeat the procedure...

          Lol. Senior moment evidently.
          I did recall setting this up, but it seemed pretty hit or miss as to either it would stay working, requiring restarts to make it go again. Maybe I'll set up another rpi on the bench and test.
          The reason i ask is I'd like to set it up so guests can stream music without my needing to set it up for them. Cheers

            I think that what you want will not work when using piCorePlayer as Bluetooth receiver, since with pCP you would first need to pair with a bluetooth device, and then set the bluetooth type of that device to streamer. So you would need to pair and configure every individual bluetooth device of your guests.

            Maybe bluetooth receivers exist that do not need any configuration (although from a security point of view that would not be safe in my opinion). If so, you could connect such a bluetooth receiver to an audio line input of your LMS server, using the WaveInput plugin of LMS. If your pCP has an analog or digital (spdif) audio input, this could also work with the "streamer for audio input" of pCP.

            Maybe you can get help from forum members that have experience with using audio input (other than bluetooth) on LMS or pCP.
