I’d like to have my computer play music on my iPod via Bluetooth. I have a USB Bluetooth dongle (Broadcom Corp. BCM20702A0 Bluetooth 4.0), and the computer has paired with the iPod. However, the iPod does not recognize the computer as a “headset” or similar output device.
Is there a way to have the computer play music from the iPod?
Yes. There are a number of devices that allow music to be transmitted from an iPod to such devices using a Bluetooth connection. I had assumed there was a magic handshake that told the iPod that the device can output sound. And that such magic would be something that needed installing in linux.
