Netcat Pulseaudio

Send/transfer/stream Pulseaudio over network

If you need to simply send Pulseaudio over the network to another computer without using multicast/rtp, you can just netcat it!

Run this command on the server (substitute another port number if you want)::

nc -l -p 17634 | pacat

Run this command on the client (replace the IP address with the server's and make sure the port is the same as the server's)::

parec | nc 17634
That's it! This method seems to work better and doesn't stutter on wireless networks.
