How to send Windows audio to your Linux computer over the network

Are you using Windows in a KVM virtual machine? You might notice the CPU usage is high if you use KVM’s audio. Use Stream What You Hear, it’s free. Install it in Windows, and then use VLC or any other media player, to play the stream, or you can try setting up UPnP/DLNA.
There is a delay, at least in the HTTP streaming. I don’t really care. Better then using a USB sound card, plugged into my computer’s internal sound card’s line in port. Doesn’t sound that great, and if there’s no audio, you can hear a noise like your ear’s ringing.
Airfoil Speakers doesn’t work in Manjaro. Gets a nice error message and closes, probably because it was written with an old version of Mono. I’m not installing an old Ubuntu version to use it. Also, it costs 30 bucks. If they can’t make a working Linux speaker program, then I’m not buying the Windows software.
You have to have a sound card for it to work, my HDMI sound from my AMD video card doesn’t work for some reason. So I had to plug the damn USB sound card back in. Didn’t work plugged into my USB 3.0 hub. Had to plug it in on the back of my computer, where it was. The keyboard for some reason didn’t work with the USB sound card plugged into the hub. So I couldn’t login.
A media renderer might be worse. I compiled gmrender-resurrect. Instructions for an old Ubuntu here. If using Manjaro, you only need to install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg, it’ll compile without it, but it won’t work. Easier then manually running VLC. So I’ll use it.
Don’t use gmrender-resurrect. It is choppy. VLC works better, using an HTTP stream. Also, you have to try connecting, won’t work, disconnect, connect again, and it’ll work. So, you might not need ffmpeg. Or maybe recompiling with ffmpeg installed makes it work better. I’ll just use VLC.
The Stream What You Hear might be what’s choppy. The HTTP stream was having issues too. Restarted Stream What You Hear, and it might be better.
