About this app

This is a media player that will playback the audio streamed by PulseAudio's simple protocol module.

The idea is to watch videos from XBMC running on Ubuntu, but with the audio on an Android phone.

For Window's users, a utility has been published on github that will allow the same functionality.

Please see much more documentation at the app's website http://kaytat.com/simple_protocol_player.

Thank you so much. It actually interacts properly with the linux ecosystem and doesn't try to steal my money. (I'd suggest setting a much higher buffer if you just want stutter free music though.)

If you know what this simple app is intended for, you'll understand why it's freaking awesome. I honestly never thought I'd really have a reason to make use of pulseaudio's ability to create and use a TCP network sink... yet here we are.

I replaced pulseaudio with pipewire and streaming still works flawlessly. however when my phone scrren is off the app stops after a while despite whitelisting its battery usage on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
