I am currently trying to play a .wav/.mp3 file using the edison and sending to a pair of bluetooth earbuds. Bluetooth works flawlessly, I can pair and connect with my earbuds but when I try to play the audio file with aplay/mpg123/mplayer, all three throw an error similar to "device not found".
I have these packages installed:
as you can see, I've also tried to set type to bluetooth but no results. The strange thing is pulseaudio recognizes my device but ALSA does not. I was hoping that maybe using paplay instead of aplay i could play my mp3 file but i could not find the paplay package anywhere in the repo provided by AlexT.
pactl list gives me:
Owner Module: 12
device.description = "Air-Fi Metro 2"
device.string = "00:18:91:6D:B7:01"
device.api = "bluez"
device.class = "sound"
device.bus = "bluetooth"
device.form_factor = "headset"
bluez.path = "/org/bluez/hci0/dev_00_18_91_6D_B7_01"
bluez.class = "0x240404"
bluez.alias = "Air-Fi Metro 2"
device.icon_name = "audio-headset-bluetooth"
device.intended_roles = "phone"
a2dp: High Fidelity Playback (A2DP Sink) (sinks: 1, sources: 0, priority: 10, available: yes)
off: Off (sinks: 0, sources: 0, priority: 0, available: yes)
Active Profile: a2dp
headset-output: Headset (priority: 0, latency offset: 0 usec)
Part of profile(s): a2dp
headset-input: Headset (priority: 0, latency offset: 0 usec, not available)
Whereas ALSA only lists loopback as the only device.
Whats the best way to get audio up and running on my bluetooth earbuds? Find a way to install paplay? if so how? Or am I configuring ALSA wrong?
