I noticed that my sonos player can display current track info for PLS Streams, but not for HLS streams. Is there a way to make it work for HLS streams too? What needs to happen on the broadcasting end and/or the SMAPI end to display current track info?

Hi @azizusmabni 

Welcome to the Sonos Community!

If you are responsible for the configuration of an HLS stream, then you should find this page of use:

https://devdocs.sonos.com/docs/http-live-streaming-hls

If not, however, and you are simply trying to play a station and get Now Playing info, I recommend you get in touch with our technical support team who have tools at their disposal that will allow them to give you advice specific to your Sonos system and what it reports.

I hope this helps.
