BlueZ and PulseAudio

It seems Joao Paulo have been pretty busy lately working on GSoC project: bluetooth audio support for PulseAudio, and here is a preview of his work:

As you can see PulseAudio are now able to handle Bluetooth audio devices (A2DP and HSP). There are still some missing features that we want to add, a proper wizard on BlueZ to pair/connect those devices and some bugs which we should take care before releasing the code so don’t expect it to work flawless.

To test it run:

pulseaudio -L “module-bt-device name=<name> addr=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx profile=<a2dp,hsp> rate=<8000-48000> channels=<1,2>”
