My ghetto sonos I use this to stream audiobooks to different rooms from my pc and so far its ok, just suffers from some latency issues. Still, for the price, it absolutely rocks.
Excellent app Amazing app. Made a streaming PC that could stream to multiple screens around my home with the only issue being how to get sound to the rooms with the screens, now this with a spare android in the room (can get andriods for 10 dollars, with decent speakers) and problem solved.
its great ,but i wish there was an option to manually set the audio playback time ,so rather than relying in VLCs audio sync , i can do it from the app itself ,for a pro version id think this should be implemented
The audio compression option is the real difference. I used the free version with a 256k buffer and I still encountered delay problems every once in a while. With the full option and the 128k compression I can use it with only a 32k buffer and no problems at all. In my humble opinion, the free trial for the compression should last longer because when it was over I wasn't sure if using it with that option will really be problem free. I took a risk when I paid for the full version and I'm happy I did it but if you allowed for a longer trial then I would have had no doubts in my mind that I have to buy this one.
Get the full version! Recently purchased a new pair of wireless bluetooth headphones and soon found out that they didn't pair well with Windows 8.1. So, having used the free version of Soundwire in the past, I decided to try it again. Unfortunately, I was getting a 3-second delay, which prompted me to purchase the full version. Using the additional features, I was able to remove the 3-second delay completely, while still maintaining excellent sound quality - well, as good as my headphones will allow. The app is downloaded on my Samsung Galaxy 5 and my Windows 8.1 OS. Also, I'm not sure if this is a reflection of my headphones, my phone, or the app, but I am able to get excellent sound quality and no delay from 30 feet away. For example, my phone was 5 ft away from my computer and I was 30 ft away from my phone. If you plan on using this app long-term, I absolutely recommend paying the $3.99.
Needs lots of work Crashes all the time. It also drops audio to the point of being unusable. The audio latency is huge when set to the point where you will not have any audio artifacts and dropouts. Too bad there are no alternatives.
