SBC Phidgets + Sound

Postby whatDoesThatDo » Wed Dec 02, 2009 6:53 pm

I have just ordered a SBC Phidget and can't wait to have a play with it. I was wondering though would it be possible to get the SBC to stream an audio file over the Ethernet and then get the sound out of the SBC?

I was wondering if a USB sound card may work? Something like:

I have actually been hoping to do something like this myself, but we don't have a USB sound card here to test. The SBC has USB audio support compiled into the kernel - so it should be just a matter of compiling and installing something to receive the audio and output it - there are several projects out there which do just that.

The SBC has successfully played sound!

Using an HID compliant USB sound card, with a few additional modules installed, we were able to stream an MP3 over the internet, to the SBC and play music.

I cannot make this work. Can you give a hint "a few more modules"?

What application are you using to play sound

mpg123?
asound?
ffplay?

We've since released an article giving an example of playing an MP3 on the Phidget SBC3: https://www.phidgets.com/?view=articles&article=PlayMP3FromSBC
