To make it possible, i spend some time with paessler support to find a solution :

My configuration :

  • Model : Raspberry pi 2
  • OS : Raspbian
  • Browser : iceweasel (firefox fork)

After trying several browser (Chromium, midori, ...), i tried iceweasel. The sound works on system ( from terminal : mpg321 sound.mp3) But not on web browser.

Packages were missing, so i intalled this one :

sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-base gstreamer0.10-plugins-good gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly

With a reboot and now it works with iceweasel(not with chromium)

NB : Do not forget to set audio output with raspi-config

I'm trying to have the same solution but the above does not work on rpi 3B+. Is there any other way?

@Randy Montero I've replied to your other thread - user agent spoofing is likely required.

Kind regards,
