AirParrot requires password to connect via Airplay

Hi all,

I just got a Sonos Port, and was hoping to be able to stream to it from my PC via Airplay.  After some Googling, I installed a program called AirParrot3, but when I try to use it to connect my PC to my Port, AirParrot asks for a password.  I tried using my Network password and my  Sonos password, but neither worked.

Others who’ve had this problem received advice in these forums to disable a setting on their iOS device (I have an iPhone 6SPlus).  However, I can’t implement this advice because the iPhone settings it refers to appear to have changed since then and I can’t locate them.

(For  reference, the Forum advice I’m referring to is here and here .)

If someone could help me get this working, I’d sure appreciate it!

I’m also interested in the topic. Could you find any solution?

AirParrot is a third party application, you need to contact the developer.

I never did get AirParrot working, and instead use TuneBlade, which works great and was a breeze to set up.  A word of caution though about Bluetooth connections from your PC:  the sound lacks some depth when compared with accessing the source music through the Sonos app directly.
