Playing Volumio content on a remote computer

(1/2) > >>

fox:
I installed Volumio on my RPi 4 and can access the dashboard from any of several computers running either Ubuntu or the MacOS. I enabled a bunch of radio station plugins, and was also able to access music files in the USB pendrive plugged into the Pi. Problem is that I couldn't get any sound out of my computers for anything I tried to play from the Volumio dashboard. I checked to make sure that sound was working by playing local files or youtube videos, and it was in all cases. I'm guessing that the problem has to do with sound configuration in Volumio, but I couldn't find any instructions on how to do this. The dashboard includes settings/playback options. The two output options were HDMI and headphones. Neither worked on either the Mac or Linux, but when I plugged my headphones into the Pi itself, I was getting output from the Pi. But does does one have to do to get the output from your remote computer?

Is this how it's supposed to work, though? I had thought it was a media server which means you need a media player on the local computer that accesses that server. But my reply is coming from someone who doesn't have a clue how it's supposed to work. Are there docs for it?

Here is the Volumio web page, were you can learn about what it does.

Bill, do you play music or radio directly on the Volumnio device (e.g. RPi) or do you play it from another device using Volumnio as the source? I saw you guys talking about it in another thread. Did you figure it out, Fox?

No, I did not figure it out. I assumed from Bill's comments that Volumnio isn't set to do that on a computer.
