Uh. No? Those are bluetooth speakers?

@galaxis The AVRCP profile is used for the back channel from the speaker to the audio device, so that user input via buttons on the speaker (play/pause, volume control, etc) controls the playback.
I assume that this is mapped as a keyboard that types XF86 media keys. Do you see the same with other speakers?

Follow

@lx Ah! Yes, that sounds plausible, didn't think of that...
