    You might think it's silly, but hear me out. I have a little Bluetooth earbud that works fine for phone calls. I'd like to pipe MP3 data streaming from the web through it. I know that sounds dumb at first, but this particular MP3 data is simply local police department and emergency services radio transmissions. It plays through the phone speaker or a hardwired set of phones just fine.

    Is the problem that my BT device is not stereo so the Droid won't send media to it? I sure can't find a setting to force it. The website is:

    No, its because your BT device probably doesn't support the A2DP protocol and only implements the HSP protocol.

    If you had a A2DP device, it would *just work* and any media you play would already play through the headset when it was paired.

    It is not currently possible to push that audio data through the HSP channel. It is only used to route call audio
