YouTube and DLNA/OpenHome - Mike48 - 01-08-2020 03:44

There's an abundance of music on YouTube these days, some of it in pretty good sound. I occasionally watch on my computer or on our TV set, both of which are connected to passable small sound systems.

But I'd also like to watch the videos on the Android tablet I use in my main system, directing sound to the audio system. I cannot see a way to do that. The renderer is an Auralic Aries G1, which is set up in OpenHome mode. I'm using BubbleUPnP on the tablet, but of course I could install another app if necessary.

Has anyone here figured out how to do it?

I stream youtube and spotify
1) from ipad via Wifi to Apple TV (ver.2), and then
2) from Apple TV via optical / digital to a DAC.

This is very simple and works really fine. SQ is much better than expected.

Thanks. Maybe I should look into Apple TV -- I have no idea what it is.

Your answer jogged my brain about another possibility. The Auralic Aries has Bluetooth input, which I've turned off. Turning that on might be the answer.

I'm glad to say, Bluetooth streaming works. It's hard to judge the sound quality from YouTube, but I imagine WiFi would sound better. But it's a start, and it didn't need any extra equipment and very little configuration.
