The tutorial below is outdated and should not be attempted.
If you want A2DP, upgrade to Leopard.
Low latency Stereo Bluetooth Audio is now possible on tiger thanks to Tim Hewett's a2dpcast which uses Jack for recording from the system mixer or indeed any specific coreaudio application.
To use the new system:
- Download Jack for Mac OS X from here.
Make sure to read the documentation on how to install properly on Intel Macs, especially making an Aggreagate Device with "Audio Midi Setup". For the exact proceedure watch the screencast at the bottom of this post.
- Download a2dpcast from Tim's website, here.
- Extract and copy to /usr/local/bin
- From a terminal run
N.B. The old instructions posted on this blog are now obsolete!
Update: Improved compatibility with new version from Tim with special thanks to Paul Guyot.
