    Pairing a Samsung Galaxy A8 2018 to play Audio from the phone

    Hello,

    i've sucessfully installed the picoreplayer 7. The picoreplayer is able to play music from the folder. Also Interradio is playing. Now i tried the whole day to connnect my Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) to the picorePlayer. in my Phone i have conected the Picoreplayer. When i click on it, it will a short time the sentence "connectes for Audio" appear, but it is going away very fast and nothing happens.

    When i tried to pair the phone, the phone will apear in the webplugin. If i clikc to "connect" in the section "Currently Paired Devices" the symbol will turn green. When i click to "save" the symbol will be red.

    I use a Raspberry Zero w with a hifiberry DAC/Zero/min amp.

    Update - tested with an old Iphone

    I've tested too pair an old Iphone 3G. This phone will conect to the picoreplayer. Also in the bluetooth section "Currently Paired Devices" the symbol is green. The connection to a Samunsung Galaxy S9 will work. The picoreplayer is playing music via buletooth. :-)

    Only the Galaxy A8 will not work :-(

    If i click on the smartphone on the picoreplayer, the smartphone give me the information, that he will try to connect. A little bit late the phone tell me, that the phone is connected for audio and the symbol turns blue. A few sesonds later the symbol on the smartphone will turn black and the smartphone looses the connection.

    The difference between A8 and S9 is:
    One UI-Version A8 1.0 - S9 2.5
    Android Version A8 9 - S9 10

    It seems to be a problem of the Galaxy A8. Does anbody have a solution to solve the problem?

    Thx.

    As a beginner myself, I'm not sure that this addresses your question at all.

    I'm running Squeezer on a Samsung A5 to control my music and it works just fine. It uses wi-fi connectivity rather than Bluetooth. I wonder if your issue could be related to the Bluetooth profiles for each device?
