sound over ethernet to raspberry pi + iaudioDAC

Postby calimerox » Sat May 18, 2019 8:25 pm

My situation is: I have a raspberry pi with a iaudio dac installed to listen to music to my speakers. and i have a laptop , connected to the same network via ethernet. Is there a good way to send audio from the laptop to be played back on the raspberry pi? As my laptop jack out lags quality , this would be fantastic. I searched the forums and i find hints and tipps that did not work well.. i m not too familiar with network ip stuff i have to say. As I use Cadence and route all my sound through jack , having an output from jack would be the best thing maybe..

thank you :)

Fons Adrienson produced a very effective audio over Ethernet pair of programs a few years ago. Try looking it up.

Is that laptop with the music on it a Windows laptop? I'd try to make a network share on that laptop. Windows uses a sharing protocol that is called Samba (SMB) on Linux. Might not be the easiest to access on Linux though. I read here that Windows can make an NFS (network file system) share. I'd use that if I were you.

I'd play the mp3 files from the network share on the Pi then. Good luck. :)

You can try to install Kodi mediacenter on the Pi. There's a special distro for that (LibreElec) so you have hardware accelerated video. I find accessing the network via Kodi very easy. However, the audio player of Kodi I find a bit unclear and confusing.

If you want to use JACK try Netjack 1

https://github.com/jackaudio/jackaudio. ... er_NetJack

Or Netjack 2

https://github.com/jackaudio/jackaudio. ... r_NetJack2
