Hello folks. Welocme to Techtitanic. Today, I will be sharing a simple but interesting trick with you peoples. I ensure that you will be happy learning this. What I want to share is, “How to Stream your Laptop audio or music to your Android via Wifi”. It’s a very interesting idea that you have your laptop on the table and you are watching a movie and listening to it’s audio sitting far from the table using a mobile.
I am fond of this trick because I am a movie lover and try to feel it’s sounds. So It’s time to share it with you readers 🙂
For this, We need two apps (One for PC and One for your android phone). It will work on Windows, Linux and Raspberry Pi Operating systems on both 32 and 64 bits. Sorry Mac users, You operating system is not supported yet 🙁 We hope It will be coming very soon for you guys 🙂
First of all, You have to download a software called “SoundWire” for your PC. Here is the links below;
After completing the download, you will get a Zip format file. You have to unzip it to get the SoundWire Server.exe to install. So select the zip file and click right button to get the option for extracting it. If you don’t have Winrar (Zip extractor) then download it from these links. For64bitOS and for 32(86)bit OS for windows and for Linux32bit and 64bit.
After the extraction process has been finished, you should get a folder that contains this file. Just double click on it and install the software.
After being installed, You will get a shortcut or icon like a coiled wire. Just open the software and it will show you something like this. If any pop ups appear just ignore it.
You can set the “Minimize to Tray on Start” option like this. Now notice that you have a “Server address” here and the status is “Disconnected“.
Now open Play store app on your phone and search for “SoundWire” Click on The first one and install it.
Then open the app and Put the Server Address that you have got earlier from the PC apps. That is here 192.168.0.103 (You will get randomly). Now tap on the Coiled wire icon on your mobile. The app will be connected to the pc server.
Now you have to go to setting from the upper right corner and simply change the Audio Buffer size into 64k. It will help you prevent some network problems if you have a lower connection. Less the buffer size; less the audio quality.
Now check the connection status. It should be connected showing green color. Now play an audio or video, You will listen the sound on your mobile. You can turn the System volume into 0(zero) and that will not affect the process.
You can control the server master volume from here. Just minimize the app now. Further, You will get the app on your system tray. It might automatically started after your pc has been started. You might not need to start it all the
This is the way to “Stream your Laptop audio or music to your Android via wifi”. Thank you for your patience. Hope, I will share new interesting things regularly. Thanks again for being with us. Stay visiting and keep connected. Leave a comment or knock our fb page for any kind of help.
