How to Play With Bluetooth WMP files

Bluetooth is very common in cell phone headsets and wireless keyboards and mice. It is a low power, moderate, high speed wireless communication protocol that is fast enough to transport high quality audio signal. If you have a computer with Bluetooth, you can order your audio to a Bluetooth headset or a set of speakers, allowing you to listen to music and movies played in Windows Media Player anywhere within 30 meters of the your computer.


1. Place the Bluetooth device in pairing mode. Speakers and Bluetooth headsets generally have a "Connect" button somewhere discreet; see the product manual for specific instructions on how to put it in the "discovery" mode.


2. Click on "Devices and Printers" computer "Start" menu and click the "Add Device" button in the window that opens.


3. Select the Bluetooth device in the list and enter your password security. Most devices use "0000" as a default password.


4. Right-click the volume control on the lower right corner of the Windows taskbar and select "Playback Devices".


5. Click on the Bluetooth device on the "View" tab and click on "Default". The Bluetooth device is now the primary playback device for computer audio.


6. Open WMP and play the file you want. The audio must be played through a Bluetooth device.

Wireless/Bluetooth keyboards and mice can only be used with one device at a time it is like a bluetooth headset once it is paired with a phone it will 99.99% of the time only work with that phone and that phone only, Wireless keyboards and mice are setup on the same principal once they are paired up with 1 PC to use on another PC you have to remove the pairing. The worst case scenario is that the second PC's Wireless/Bluetooth has failed. I hope this helps.
