Detect or Approximate Bluetooth Latency on Android (Audio Playback)

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I am currently working on an Android audio visualizer using connected smart home devices (such as Philips hue) to visualize music. I have trouble compensating the delay caused by bluetooth speakers.

I have noticed, that the Youtube app, in difference to many other video streaming apps, has almost no delay between audio and video, when using bluetooth speakers.
I figure, that they must compensate for the bluetooth latency by adjusting (delaying) the video signal.

Is there a reasonable way of detecting or approximating the latency/delay of bluetooth speakers?

Thank you very much for you help!!

Best,
Stefan

How to&Answers:

This would not work for Bluetooth speakers. However, I have been able to measure the audio latency of a Bluetooth dongle using Google’s Dr. Rick O’Rang loopback dongle, using Glenn Kasten test app.
