I have searched past topics but have not found an exact match for my problem. Like many others, I used to play music located “on this device” (Android phone) over my Sonos network. Everything was working until a recent Sonos app update where they removed that option. I was annoyed but saw that it was still showing my PC on the available list. I have my music folders on the PC set to be seen and accessed on the network. So I tried going that route on the Sonos app. I asked it to select all artists which it dutifully did. Great, so far. I selected an album from an artist, it shows the tracks, and plays them. I’m thinking, okay, my PC is on most of the time anyway so I’ll just use that instead.
Well not so fast. There are a couple of artists that I really like and had ripped their CDs as FLAC files using EAC. Those files show up in the Sonos app but when I try to play them, I get the message, “An error occurred while adding tracks to the Queue (701).”
I am stumped. All of my other music, which are MP3s, play fine. It’s only these FLAC files won’t. They played just fine before the Browse screen option of “on this device” was removed from Android phones. Any ideas? I would consider it a step backward to have to rip all 12 of those albums in MP3.
