I have A Raspberry Pi 3 running OpenElec. I can pair and connect to my bluetooth speaker. What additional software do I need to install to play an mp3 file to the bluetooth speaker?
The current config only supports audio output to HDMI or analog, so output to bluetooth cannot be selected. Can this be achieved with OpenElec, or should I try another OS? I couldn't get it to work on the Raspberry Pi 1, even after installing pulse-audio etc (tried OpenElec and OSMC).
Have found a solution: Installed latest version of Raspbian-Jessie 2016-03-18 on Pi3. Added pulseaudio and A2DP suppport + bLueman : sudo apt-get install blueman pulseaudio pavucontrol pulseaudio-module-bluetooth Added vlc (media player) see: http://plugable.com/2016/03/14/listening-to-bluetooth-audio-on-your-raspberry-pi-3-pi-2-or-pi-zero No modification to config files required. All of this was done via ssh from my laptop.
