How To Stream Audio To A Chromecast Or DLNA / UPnP Device From Linux (Using pulseaudio-dnla)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:qos/pulseaudio-dlna
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-dlna

Now, to run it, type the following in a terminal:

pulseaudio-dlna --codec mp3 --encoder-backend=ffmpeg

Of course, this was the case for me, and it might not be needed in other cases.

pulseaudio-dlna --help
sudo apt-get install pavucontrol
