(Solved) MPD Pulseaudio client no sound

Hi,

I've installed MPD on my server, configured the music path I can play music on clients, but I don't have sound on client !
I've try audio_output HTTP and Icecast, I'm not interrested in these two solutions.
So I wanted to broadcast sound over network, so I leanrt about Pulseaudio, in my /etc/mpd.conf I uncomment the pulse sound card.
Edit /etc/pulse/default.pa in order to add my client IP

load-module module-native-protocol-tcp auth-ip-acl=192.168.1.5

And start pulseaudio --start.

On the client edit the /etc/pulse/client.conf to add server ip address.

 default-server=192.168.1.10

And started as well !


Message error on client :
User-configured server at 192.168.1.10 refusing to start /autospawn.


I simply want to broadcast the audio_outup in the server to the clients
How can I fix it  ?

Thanks in advance.

Re: (Solved) MPD Pulseaudio client no sound

simply make sure the pulse server is actually RUNNING smile it cannot autospawn over network. so make sure its already working
and of course you need to supply the pulse IP on mpd.conf as well.

Re: (Solved) MPD Pulseaudio client no sound

Also, pavucontrol is a nice tool that lets you graphically see your audio levels.  If you run that, and see the displays bounce, you know that the audio is getting as far as the input of PA (or not).  Then you know whether the problem is in the front end (between the source and PA) or in the back end (between PA and the sound hardware)

Re: (Solved) MPD Pulseaudio client no sound

@Rasi : I've re-launch pulseaudio --start no problems on the server, but the same error on the client.
User-configured server at 192.168.1.10 refusing to start /autospawn.

@ewaller :  pavucontrol shows me the MPD stream we can see the sound stream blue but I still can't hear anything.

Re: (Solved) MPD Pulseaudio client no sound

Okay, so it is a back end problem. 

In Pavucontrol, go to the Output Devices tab and check the port pull down.  Make sure yours is set for something rational.  Maybe try all the ones that make sense.  Also, go to the configuration tab and look at the various profiles.  Make sure that it, too, selects something rational; If you are using built in speakers, make sure it is not trying to use HDMI.

Then, pop over to your favorite mixer and make sure all the controls are un-muted and that the volumes are up. 

If none of that helps, post the output of
pacmd dump
pacmd dump-volumes

Re: (Solved) MPD Pulseaudio client no sound

It works !
The problems was the latencies between mpd and pulse I can adjust it by

buffer_before_play "100%"

But I would like to start pulseaudio after the boot.
Pulseaudio does not use systemd, how can I start it at the boot ?

You may look at systemd ---user or just add it to ~/.xinitrc

I don't have X interface.
How can I use systemd with pulse ?

Look at the wiki article of systemd, you could ad it to ~/.bashrc  too ( I would prefer the first one).
