This is amazing and something I have been trying to do for years...stream the line-in input on my PC to my phone. In the past I have used things like Splashtop or even had streaming radio servers set up, but nothing worked or was simple/unobtrusive. Soundwire couldn't be easier. I had everything set up in 10 min and the sound is great. One request...Can we get an Alexa skill? If I can say, "Alexa, open Soundwire" and get the same feed from my PC, that could be life-changing.
It's hard not to sound like a shill writing positive reviews for apps, but this one really is great. With initial settings there's a delay of maybe a quarter second that makes watching videos on screen difficult, but changing the bitrate to 8K fixes this for me so any delay isn't noticable. I only have Sonos speakers on my desk and didn't want to buy computer speakers for the times I don't want to have my headphones on and I'm near the computer listening to something/watching video. This is a perfect solution for me.
It's alright but the paid version drops connection for a few seconds every 5 minutes or so. If I can play with settings and get it to work better Ill adjust the rating. I am sitting next to both phone and WiFi router so I know ita not on my end. Aside from that one major problem, the GUI for both server and app could use a facelift but it's functional.
Setup was easy. Easier than WiFi Speaker app which you had to input firewall boundaries. This does it for you. Make sure on same WiFi SSID. I tether through a laptop that feeds my router. through ICS. Make sure laptop is connected as WiFi too, but will not receive internet. Your internet will still work. Only issue is, trying to setup multi-room system. Two androids: ZTE Z981 ZMAX PRO and ZTE N861 Warp. I got them to sync twice changing buffer size at different sizes because them at the same wouldn't sync. Eventually a few minutes later they fall out of sync. Please Help. It's not a big issue atm, but when a party arrives would be nice to have music in each room instead of one system being turnt up all the way! So far good sound performance with paid verson. Will give 5 stars if issue is addressed. PC is Lenovo G50 cabled to Linksys EA6700 and all devices are in a 3 foot radius for testing Thanks, Jon G
This app is incredible, and i love it. The only problem is the transmission of signal is a little delayed, so when i watch movie from the, computer, the sound on my mobile is not sync. This is the only problem but overall, this app is amazing!
I expected no (or very little) compression between the device and client. On audio files with 320 bitrate or higher (think Spotify on high quality) there is a noticeable drop in quality, probably due to compression. Definitely a cool little app, but not for anyone who wants high-quality audio. I should note: my testing was done over a very high quality wifi connection, and the "compression" setting was turned off on the app.
-Changed connect button so it can be pressed while connected to a server, no need to disconnect first.
-Made "Done" keyboard key initiate server connection when entering server address.
-Some bug fixes.
