I'm currently running two pulseaudio servers, one on my windows xp
laptop and one on my linux desktop. I want to stream the audio oupput of
for example itunes from my laptop to the speakers connected to my linux
PC. What I've done up to now:
- I'm running 'virtual audio cable' as a virtual soundcard on the
laptop. This way the audio stream is available as a source stream to
pulseaudio on the windows laptop.
- I'm using module-tunnel-source to connect from my linux desktop to the
windows PC. Why is the tunnel module deprecated? What do I loose using
this module? And how do I establish this connection directly as it is
recommended in the documentation?
- finally I have the stream I want to listen to as a source in my
pulseaudio server on my linux PC. How to forward to the sink? I've tried
to use rtp-send with option loop=1 and rtp-rcv on the same pulseaudio
instance. It works, but it is not very elegant and I'm flooding the
network with data which is not really needed anywhere. So I'm looking
for something like the 'virtual audio cable' for internal use in
pulseaudio. Any hints? Anyone already working on a solution?
