bluealsa-aplay - a simple bluealsa player
bluealsa-aplay [OPTION]... [BT-ADDR]...
Capture audio streams from Bluetooth devices (via bluealsa(8)) and play them to an ALSA playback device.
By default bluealsa-aplay captures audio from all connected Bluetooth devices. It is possible to select specific Bluetooth devices by providing a list of BT-ADDR MAC addresses. Using the special MAC address 00:00:00:00:00:00 will disable device filtering - the same as the default behavior.
- -h, --help
- Output a usage message and exit.
- -V, --version
- Output the version number and exit.
- -v, --verbose
- Make the output more verbose.
- -l, --list-devices
- List connected Bluetooth audio devices.
- -L, --list-pcms
- List available Bluetooth audio PCMs on connected devices.
- -B, --dbus=NAME
- BlueALSA service name suffix. For more information see --dbus=NAME option of bluealsa(8) service daemon.
- -D, --pcm=NAME
- Select ALSA playback PCM device to use for audio output. The default is “default”.
- Set the playback PCM buffer duration time to INT microseconds. The default is 500000. ALSA may choose the nearest available alternative if the requested value is not supported.
- Set the playback PCM period duration time to INT microseconds. The default is 100000. ALSA may choose the nearest available alternative if the requested value is not supported.
- Use A2DP profile (default).
- Use SCO profile.
- Allow only one Bluetooth device to play audio at a time. Without this option, bluealsa-aplay plays audio from all selected Bluetooth devices. Please note that playing from all Bluetooth devices at a time requires used PCM to be able to mix audio from multiple sources (i.e., it can be opened more than once; for example the ALSA dmix plugin).
