Works and is Incredibly Simple I love this app. Makes it very easy to turn my phone into speakers for essentially any application. There are plenty of settings to make sure it works just as you want too. Honestly, can't recommend this enough if you need to play audio from your computer to your phone. It also lets you record.
This app works good, but the developer needs to understand that when you run more than 1 server and 1 media player it takes a toll on the computers RAM, and then slows down the computer. The app works good for remotely monitoring audio from your computer, and also for using it as a studio to transmitter or bluetooth audio transmitter link. You can use the multiple sound wire servers as your own personal digital radio system. I want him to do some special add ons such as memory presets and port number selections. It helps eliminate the need for AM and FM transmitters, and you can use this app with your bluetooth receiver to hear music or anything else from your stereo, boombox, and portable radio with bluetooth. There has been an update posted about the server that you use it with more than 1 audio source. With Windows it's easy. You have to learn more about it in the instructions. But for linux it's hard to do when you don't know linux shell programming. There are no simple instruction to do it with linux, but easy instructions for Windows.
The latency is way too high for wifi (802.11 ac in my case). Lossless streaming pcm should be very easy under a network that can handle about a gigabit a second, but it's been consistently skippy in several networks that I've tested it in. Other programs (that are higher bandwith as well) function well with below 60ms latency. I don't know why audio of all things can't be the same, I think it's just bad coding.
The latency is really bad. No reason for this over WiFi, it's just audio. I can stream full HD video content from my computer to my phone, and transcode it on the fly, and I don't get the dropouts and latency issues that this audio app provides. Needs improvement.
I came across this little gem when the onboard sound card failed on my PC. Turns out it makes perfect wireless headphones you can use anywhere!!! I'll be keeping this one. Nice little app even if your soundcard works just fine!
SEAMLESS AS YOU COULD ASK FOR WHEN WE BUILD OUR OWN MACHINES POS PROGRAMS LIKE DRIVER FINDER INEVITABLY SCREW UP SOME DRIVES. NOTHING LIKE A COMPUTERTHAT WILL MAX OUT EVERY WINDOWS BENCHMARK ONLY IT ECOS AND SOUNDS HORRIBLE AFTER YOUR LAST (FIX) FROM DRIVER FINDER. AND WHEN YOU ENTERTAIN LIKE. I DO, YOU NEED SURROUND SOUND, AND THIS APP DID IT IN LIKE 2 MIN. THANKS, WELL WORTH THE 5 BUCKS ITHINK. HIGHLY RECOMENDED.
-Added "Mute audio on calls" preference to allow SoundWire audio during calls if desired.
-Added support for opening SoundWire via a web page (browsable intent), use a link like this to trigger: href="soundwire.georgielabs.net:"
-Google Play Services and stability updates.
