Details

This media player plays uncompressed PCM data from a server over your local network. This is meant to be used for streaming audio from a PC to your Android phone or tablet. The focus has been latency and so all the options are intended for the user to be able to find a compromise between latency and quality.

As a rule of thumb, a low sample rate + mono + 50 ms or less of buffer time are the settings that are generally used.

This project is based on an old version of this Android example: https://github.com/googlesamples/android-MediaBrowserService

Streaming from Ubuntu (or anything running PulseAudio)

The following web page describes how to configure PulseAudio for use with this player. http://kaytat.com/blog/?page_id=301

Streaming from Windows

Download the server from the github link above and run it locally. The server has some options also to help tune the performance.

Test your latency:
