Currently Being ModeratedOct 16, 2009 9:14 PM (in response to Gottalight)Thank you SO much for this fix! I just got a Plantronics Calisto headset to use with MacSpeech Dictate (my old wired headset for it broke, and they were offering a great special on this one right when I needed it). But I couldn't get YouTube/Hulu, etc. sound to play through it. I really didn't want to have to wear one headset for dictating and another one for listening. The solution of Soundflower and LineIn works great...no audio latency, either.MacBook Pro 17", Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 9, 2009 4:30 PM (in response to Adel Khathlan)I don't think it's necessary to use LineIn for this to work. Run Soundflower so the Icon is in the top bar. In system preferences/sound set output to a Soundflower channel. Then click the Soundflower Icon and select your bluetooth device.
I tried both methods and this one has slightly less delay between video and audio.
Some programs like Ichat and Skype still need to be setup for your headset.
Great solution though Jeremy Dorn! Now I can watch netflix and youtube vids with my bluetooth headset.MBP 1st generation, Mac OS X (10.5.7), Safari 4.0
Currently Being ModeratedJan 12, 2010 8:56 AM (in response to Katie Berryhill)@Katie, and anybody else who knows how to accomplish this:
I would like to use MacSpeech Dictate with Calisto Pro mic as well. I do not have the USB adapter.
It seems that one can make it work by using soundflower and linein.
Can somebody outline somewhat more detailed steps?
Also, if you can outline more detailed steps on how to make the Calisto bluetooth headset the device for audio and other programs on Mac, that would be tremendously helpful!
