Output to Bluetooth speakers

Postby WernerP » Sat Jan 20, 2018 10:25 am

Hello,
Not being very tech-minded, I have a question. I've been using MM 4.1.19.1859 for some time now and I'm thinking about upgrading to Gold. I'm currently planning to buy a pair of Bluetooth speakers to be able to let my media library stream from my PC. Before buying said speakers though, I would like to know if this is technically possible and if I need to install some plugins - remark that if you think this is a stupid question, I'm absolutely not tech-savvy. Also, any recommendations as to which speakers to use are more than welcome.

It is possible. You may need to configure through Tools > Options > Output Plug-ins.

Technically it is your computer that is going to send the bluetooth signal and that is what you first need to be sure will work and how it does so. Then you can ask how to set up MM to play through your computer to the bluetooth speakers. That said, if your computer will play to bluetooth I can't see why MM couldn't be a source.

Assuming you are using Windows 7 or higher, when you connect the Bluetooth speakers they will identify as an audio device and Windows should automatically set it as the default audio device. Sometimes getting Windows to connect to a Bluetooth devices can be a pain, though.
