Hello not-so-lazyweb: PulseAudio and DLNA or AirPlay

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks
I've been battling with this for awhile now, using every possible peferences/control program and tweak that I could find on the Intertubez, but I still can't seem to make it work.So here's what I'm trying to do:

I have this fancy receiver that supports DLNA (and now, via a free firmware upgrade that I got, AirPlay). I know that it works via both of these protocols, as Windows Media Player and my HTC Thunderbolt can stream to it without an issue. Once I got and applied the firmware upgrade, iTunes can use it as well (I'm sad to admit I actually have all these things to try, but this isn't a confessional.... :) ).

The problem is that I can't seem to make PulseAudio work to stream my Fedora audio output to it. Being that Fedora is what I use most of the time, I see this as something of a limitation :). I've mucked around with the PulseAudio configuration for days, and can't seem to make it work for anything (and now, I don't even have working sound through my locally attached speakers for some reason...)

I've got a "pactl list" up if anyone wants to peruse it to see what I've done wrong. Clearly, this appears to be supported in PulseAudio, so I'm sure that I'm just Holding It Wrong(TM). I'd be happy for it to work either via DLNA or AirPlay.

gnome has a DLNA server called rygel. "yum install rygel" should be enough and if your using tracker on your desktop there's a subpackage that will allow it to just use that. It works with my Samsung TV but if there's any issues just file a bug as one of the upstream maintainers is now comaintaining the entire gupnp* stack with me

I am pretty sure you need to have module-http-protocol-tcp loaded as well.
