I will give it 5 stars when wifi isn't mandatory It's a great app, does exactly what it says it can do. Honestly the only thing that needs to be added is that we should be able to use our data for this, come on, this is the full version, we just paid 4 dollars for perks, that should be included or at least not having to be on the same wifi. Once this app has that update, it will get 5 stars.
Really interesting program. Works well and has a lot of options. I'm using this to push audio from my music player on my PC to and old phone hooked up to my sound system. It's really useful that you can select the audio source on the PC end. It means I can keep my speakers on my PC working and available for other things but still control the music playlist while I'm working. I've just started using this and tweaking it, but I notice an audio quality drop compared to running the music naively. I'm also hearing little clicks and blips for some reason. Maybe some tweaking will solve these little hiccups. I'm not sure if it's the program or the dated phone I'm using. Again these clicks and blips are not heard if playing naively. The audio does get delayed, but since I'm using this to push music for when I'm working it doesn't matter. (update - fixed the little audio blips and upgraded review from 4 to 5 stars) Turns out the audio device I was pushing my audio to on my PC was little mismatched with what sample rate was expected. I switched it over to 44.1 kHz (from 48 kHz) in the advanced tab on Windows and all the problems went away. My fault, not the programs.
This app works great, it provides personal audio from your computer to your Android device. How it works is that you download the server and then get it installed, then the server assigns you an IP address like for example XXX.XXX.1.9 and then you go to your Android device app and then put in the same IP address into your Sound Wire client, and enjoy the music. If you want to change audio sources, simple, go to the Sound Wire server and set your preferred audio source like stereo mix or default setting. You must make sure that your sound card settings are set to 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz, but 44.1 kHz is the best setting for this app to work properly. This is good for remote monitoring of audio such as your internet radio stations or line in stereo sources, CD player. Your own personal digital broadcast system.
Stunning app. The kids can sleep and the parents can watch as much loud TV as they want. It takes a bit of effort to find the best settings, but works fine with multple devices at the same time. Latency is fine for Netflix, Iplayer, NOWTV and movies on your PC. I find wired headphones are required though as the lag is too great using bluetooth (plugging the phone into a Hi-fi also has too much lag).
Great Has worked flawlessly for me. Very low latency and only minor audio glitches every once in a while.
I use to stream Radio DJ from a PC with the Sound Wire server to my phone. Gotta admit, it's pretty cool to listen to my "radio station" while driving down the road.
