    Hey, I was sitting in my room watching a show on my computer and using my wireless headphones to listen to it, when they died (battery ran out).

    I then thought "hey! I have a badass phone, what can I do with it!?"

    So, I looked around and found nothing to do what I wanted to do:

    I would like to find a way to stream audio (not music, but actual audio like what would come from the speakers) to my phone via wifi or whatever.

    I was thinking that that would be cool, and i could plug headphones into the phone and those could serve as a cool wireless headphone set while my other one charged (or for somebody who doesn't have wireless headphones...)

    What do you guys think?

    Anybody managed to do this?

    P.S. love my droid! dancedroid

    Woah

    Dude, that is exactly what I was thinking of. Well I'm sure somebody's going to port it. I seriously need to learn how to make apps, lol.

    The way android works, maybe we'll get some kind of ipod emulation layer lol

    Hey, while we're looking at this, is there an app that allows me to have music on my computer streamed to my phone over 3g? Not exactly practical, but still...

    Why is that not practical when Lastfm, Pandora etc do it from their server.

    Gmote streams mp3s to your phone from your computer. Not sure if it works over 3G though.

    Well I guess you're right, but I'm betting that their MP3s use a much lower bitrate and probably have some other type of compression...
