With JollaC I am not able to play music via bluetooth anymore. Did not swap to bluez5 by now by my own but system is on bluez5

[Update] Yeah I see this is a known bug


but: Why is bluez5 now installed by default without full feature set? How can I swap to bluez4? Is it possible anyways?

Unhappy to kill a killer feature...

[Update] I need to to relativise: this seems to depend on the bluetooth profile 8 bit mono audio - and Jabra devices just use this profile. My Venturi Mini works without problems.

[Update] ... Venturi mini worked - till the first call: It shows A2DP, AVRCP, HFP. If a call comes in, the Venturi beeps (so the call is recognised). I can open the call but there is no audio - not at the phone not at the car call set. Changing to loudspeaker works, changing back to car set fails. Because of my .24 update crash I needed to re-connect the phone but I could not enter my pin code though the car set asks to do. Music makes no problems.

yup, no audio at all, sound continues to come from device. Remote functions still work (back/play/skip).

When I connect my phone to my car (a Nissan), music still plays through the phone until I press the Play button on the car controls. It's a workaround...

@Andy ok, I try this out. Though it will not work with gpodder which has no function keys implemented. But hey, music with the media player is more than nothing.

@cy9aer It doesn't seem to matter which app is playing nor whether it supports the function keys - it just seems to tell the phone to switch the audio route.

@Andy I see... So hope that works. Thank you.
