Is there an option of streaming audio via bluetooth to mopidy


#1

I’m running mopidy on a Raspberry Pi 3. Since It comes with bluetooth I was wondering if there is an option of streaming audio from another device to the mopidy running device, which is my RPI.

After a quick search I found Mopidy Bluetooth Manager which seems to only enable the use of bluetooth remote controls. Futhermore it does not seem to be actively developed anymore.

Are there maybe any other tools for Raspberry which provide this feature or is there any other possible solution of how to solve this?

If you want to stream audio to your raspberry pi, does it make sense to involve mopidy? I don’t understand where mopidy would come in.

okay… I see, this might be more a question for the official raspberry-pi forum.

Was just hoping there might be another backend extension which could take care of this. I’m still kinda new to mopidy and still overwhelmed by all its features. Thanks for your reply

Afraid not, it doesn’t really fit in. And Yeh, I think you’ll have more luck on their forum.

if you have root on your phone you can route your audio to a upnp server. In that case you can use Mopid+UpmpdCli (upnp server implementation) to play your audio from your phone to your rp.

Otherwise, you need to use bluez or similar bluetooth daemons. I use it here in fact I have multiple bluetooth adapters on my pc and each is connected to separate devices.

I am successfully streaming BT to an RPi2 b+, https://support.hifiberry.com/hc/en-us/requests/7052. Be prepared for some experimentation.

Good luck, AJ
