Dev0 and hello are correct - no you cannot connect using your Android device as a A2DP sink given the standard Android bluetooth stack. Stack Overflow user Dennis Mathews explains why: You may not be able to [create an A2DP connection] manually between 2 phones also because to stream one device needs to be A2DP sink and other other A2DP source; phones are ...

It is not possible via bluetooth on Android, only from phone to PC, not from PC to phone... But here are some solutions you may be able to use: The easiest way to do it is using this app: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.georgie.SoundWireFree&rdid=com.georgie.SoundWireFree&rdot=1&pli=1 Another way to do it is to use splashtop remote, ...

You could turn on "USB Tethering", then run some media server like VLC carefully configured with RTSP streaming on your local server. Then open up the stock browser on android, type in your local ip (prefixed with rtsp:// protocol instead of http) of the pc followed by the port number as set in VLC or equivalent. The Android media player should launch if all ...

I think the answer here is "in all practicability, no." One hypothetical alternative would be USB host support, and to mount an external hard drive or thumb drive onto your phone. This would mean doing something like this, How To Mount External Hard Drive to Your XOOM. This seems impractical and potentially dangerous (who knows if that OTG cable might cause ...

Try Twonky. Instantly stream media from your phone to devices on your home network! It can stream not only to you PC but to other DLNA capable device and not only music but photo and other stuff.

That's weird. I could stream this perfectly on my Android 2.3 stock browser. For you, I'd suggest you do the following :- Download MX Video Player FREE (and a suitable codec for your phone) Enter the URL rtsp://128.112.131.181:554/blackboard/cs/additive_combinatorics/1_luca_trevisan_350k.rm in your stock browser. You'll see something like : The above URL ...

Generally, Galaxy devices have AllShare app which is DLNA certified software. If your device doesn't have AllShare, install Skifta. Now, all you need is a DLNA certified media streaming server on PC. Fortunately, Windows Media Player 11 on Windows XP has this capability. So, you don't need extra software. Make sure your music collection is in WMP library....

The NFL keeps a tight rein on its broadcast rights. Further, the outfits that ponied up those huge payments for those rights are not going to be happy if there is a cheaper alternative. So, no, there is not going to be a way to watch live NFL games without subscribing to cable or satellite. If you're okay with watching games after the fact and you have an ...

This app could do the trick: Bluetooth Music Player Free You need to install it on both Android devices and pair them. Then put the tablet in ListenMUSIC over Blueetooth mode and the the phone in shareMUSIC over Bluetooth mode.

try TuneIn Radio, it has both stations, and it's great (and free)!

You can check out Soundwire, there is a paid and free version so you can choose which one of them suits your need by checking out the description.

Think of it from another point of view: what do you want to listen to? Using Wifi I doubt that it is possible to acheive a latency suitable for games or movies. I have a BT A2DP connector on my stereo and even that does not provide enough speed to play movies properly. This leaves us with music. Then it is in almost every case more useful to play it on the ...

I use TVersity to stream to my Android device, Logitech Revue, Original Xbox, Xbox 360, etc. TVersity can transcode the video on the fly. I have, in the past, been able to get Matroska container files to play, but not always and with varying results. Sometime they don't play at all, sometime they played fine, and sometimes they play, but the video is ...

There is also a Subsonic Android App, which allows you to stream audio and video from the server. Video streaming is done with Flash. You should disable transcoding for MP4 files, since Android's Flash Player can ...

Have a look at SoundWire.

I guess there is: WebCam Free consists of an app for your Android device, plus a server component to be put on your computer. From the apps description, this could do what you want (didn't try it myself, but it's certainly worth a look). I linked the free version; a paid version is available for about 1.50 Euro. If that doesn't do (or you don't like the ...

I found a solution to stream your Google Music to any device that is DLNA enabled. It's an android app called BubbleUPNP. What it does is it accesses your Google Music account, adds the titles to your local library (only the titles, think of them as links to the Google Music library) and then starts a DLNA server on your phone. This means that any device ...

You can install airbubble on your android, which works as a speaker using apple's AirPlay (DAAP) protocol. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bubblesoft.android.airbubble Pulseaudio can be configured to stream to any AirPlay receiver - check this answer for details on setting that up: https://superuser.com/questions/331126/how-can-you-stream-...

Have you thought of an UPnP AV approach? The protocol allows streaming of media between various devices in the same network (e.g. Wifi). There is a large variety of servers and clients for all the OSes. For example, MediaTomb is a well-known media server also available for Ubuntu. For playback on the phone you could use allShare, which comes preinstalled on ...

Since your device is rooted you can install a Proxy. I've used TransparentProxy. Then setup a proxy on another machine on your local network. Point TransparentProxy to that proxy and then set your Proxy to throttle. A few proxies that might work include CharlesProxy or Service Capture. If that doesn't work then you can come at it from the router level. A ...

It is possible to set network latency and speed using the emulator control functions of the standard Android Developer tools. If using eclipse: Select Window\Open Perspective\DDMS On the screen you will see a tab named "Emulator Control". In this tab, you will find the Speed and Latency options. The 'Telephony Settings' at the very top have speed and ...

UDP streaming in VLC on android is supported. UDP is not a good way to stream over wifi. You will get a lot of packet loss. If you can't change that in DVB Dream, there are other applications (like TVersity for example) that can stream to android (and other devices) with no problems (or little problems) and they even transcode the video so it is in a format ...

CNET has great video here that explains how to do exactly what you want. Use Skifta, and you can stream from your PC to your phone.

I wrote WiFi Speaker which does what SoundWire and AirFoil do; except it does it better. I feel confident saying its the best PC to phone app on the market right now. The interface is intuitive, there's a graphics equalizer display, audio compression, and some GUI customizations. You can even select what audio format you want. All standard formats from ...

Personally I favour Subsonic for my media streaming, which has a native Android client (along with iPhone and more).

As dev0 says, it is not possible over bluetooth. You need to stream it through your wifi connection.

If you're looking to just play music anywhere in the house, the option to just access a file share from your phone and play music from it is probably your best bet. ES File Explorer has a Samba plugin that should allow just that, and most music players should be able to do playlists. As an aside, no matter which option you chose you don't have to worry ...

I use option 4 (DLNA) quite beautifully for streaming both music AND video to my phone/tablet/PS3 and tablet within wi-fi range in my house. My setup is: PC MediaTomb running on Ubuntu-linux (If you run Windows, I'm sure there are alternatives) Tablet / Phone: uPNPlay (free on Google Play) linked to your favorite media player Pros: All media sits on one ...
