For all Apple devices, music has always been considered as an important part. There is an utmost demand for sharing music on iOS via bluetooth with a music streaming App, which is easy to use and setup, and allows users toselect music on any of their iOS device like iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to stream it live with other remote iOS device using Bluetooth or Wifi.
How Sharing Music On iOS via Bluetooth is Possible ?
A dedicated and skilled team of iOS developers at TBI, have engineered to allow easy music sharing from any iOS device with other remote iOS devices in original harmony using Bluetooth and wifi. Their continuous efforts created an Music App for iOS, which in an outstanding way to stream and enjoy user’s favourite music in a real time together within a group.
A new ‘Multipeer Connectivity’ technology was invented after the arrival of of iOS 7. It allows ease to stream audio to many listeners using NSZOutputStream and NSInputStream frameworks. But it is not an easy task to play an audio file with NSInputStream.’CoreAudio’is used to make this possible to set out an adventure.
iOS Multipeer Connectivity Audio Streaming
To reduce file size of music audio files like MP3 and AAC are encoded. ‘Audio File Stream Services’ provided by iOS, processes the encoded audio format and return the raw audio data.
On receiving data, audio streaming is started. It gets decoded, on passing it into the stream parser. The required raw audio data will be received from the parser. In the audio queue there are three buffers filled one by one with the data received from the parser and each filled buffer enqueued to the system. When the system is finished playing an audio buffer, System is returned, refilled and enqueued again in a loop until there is no more audio data to play.
Following illustration shows the code to the system hardware flow process. Here, the red and green squares represent the empty and full buffers respectively.
