To keep it short. I'm looking for a app that plays whatever sounds I play on my PC.
Try Gmote, works as PC remote and I believe you can also stream to your phone from your PC with it as well.
Thank you, but I'm sorry to say that that wasn't it.
The problem is that I cannot, in a decent way, remote my cell from my pc.
What I want is my phone to play whatever sound my computer play.
So I can use for youtube, spotify, winamp etc.
More or less like a poor mans version of the Creative Soundblaster for Itunes ( Creative Soundblaster Wireless for iTunes with Wireless Receiver | Creative Labs Online Store )
Try a combination of jamcast on a pc and tunewiki on your phone
I've used jamcast to stream pandora audio to a wii.
Look here for more details:
Is it possible to decide the type of file Jamcast sends? - Technical Support - Jamcast User Community - Jamcast
Sorry to keep responding to my own posts but the "edit" button on the forum doesn't work on my phone.
The method that I described should work, but I see now that they plan to release a native android jamcast client soon. See:
Jamcast News | Jamcast News, Announcements, and Product Information
I've written an app that does exactly what you ask, see SoundWire on the Android Market.
For those of you who have been beating yourselves up looking for a solution, bite the bullet and shell out the 30 clams for Jamcast server. It works perfectly. It was easy to setup. And they have a free client for the Android. I was up and running in 10 minutes and have been listening to a streaming radio broadcast on my phone without interruption for the last hour. Very minimal, and I emphasize minimal (like a few seconds per hour) of buffering interruptions.
I can't wait to try this .. sounds EXACTLY like what I want ... simply a remote speaker for my TV so I can leave the receiver turned down and "remote" listen to my media center while the TV is on.
I'll be happy to shell out for the pay version if it works as it sounds!
WiFi Speaker does the same thing as SoundWire except better:
Its cleaner. Actually pleasurable to look at. Also WiFi Speaker is a lot easier to use, and allows you to actually select the PCM audio format you want.
WiFi Speaker even has a graphics equalizer!
Soundwire just feels dated and clunky. Its confusing to use, and sometimes slow...
SoundIt does just that.
It lets you stream the sound output of your PC to any web browser so you can stream to any phone or even another PC.
