How to redirect audio on Pi to remote desktop?

Fri Jan 17, 2020 5:48 am

I am using the following software on my Windows 10 laptop to access my Raspberry Pi 4 4GB:
* RealVNC VNC Connect (VNC Viewer)
* Windows Remote Desktop

Notes:
* VNC service is enabled on Pi
* XRDP is installed on Pi

How do I get the audio on the Pi to redirect to the PC?

Audio is not supported by RealVNC. Only supported on the paid versions: https://help.realvnc.com/hc/en-us/artic ... audio--0-1
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated RPi OS Bullseye w/ Desktop OS.

RealVNC and RDP are 2 differing protocols, RealVNC does not support.


There have been issues with XRDP but it "may" support Audio:
