streaming pc audio to my mobile
Hello friends,

   So I was thinking about doing something so I could listen to the audio ( all the sounds you would normally hear directly on your computer.. the line out output) wirelessly without paying for a new wireless / Bluetooth headphone / earphone and bluetooth / wireless dongle or some such solution. I came with this idea to stream my line out. somehow. May be getting the line out to pipe to line in virtually or something and then icecast or shoutcast .. I plan to use my tplink wireless router.

I tried icecast and almost all the available source clients for windows 7 and used vlc on my android to listen to the cast. Bad mojo.. really laggy .. I could not reduce the lag.

Then i came across this wonderful software called SoundWire !! It is working nicely. No lag whatsoever. 

The server running on the pc is the same. The android client has free or paid options. free is limited to 1 client connection maximum. 

The great advantage of this is that using a paid clients, you could support multiple users. Now all i need is my headphone / earphone attached to my mobile and the mobile connected to the router access point. I also use wireless eyboard and mouse. Hence I can now use my computer from anywhere inside the room. 

Now my question is -
Do you guys know of any other way to do this without paying ? any other software ? May be you know how to speed up things for icecast ?

I really want full free solution for this if possible. Like making icecast work for me.

Thanks for all your responses.

I honstly used SoundWire years ago and it was pretty fine. There's just some delay.
There seems to be some OSS alternatives. Try checking them out Laugh
ES File explorer works pretty well with audio/video streaming on the same wireless network. You just need to share your music folder in Winblows. Laugh
So Say We All

I don't think that's what rudra is look for. It seems he's looking for a way to redirect all audio on one device to another as a kind of "poor man's wireless headphones"
it is a really good idea if more than one person want to listen to the same sounds..

i think they didn't read what i had to say in the first post.
