I am new to the Sonos world and I have a Beam setup with my TV which works fine.
I have a large music collection on my PC and I’m experimeneting with how to play MP3's on my Beam. I've installed the Windows desktop client and I’ve created a playlist but I cannot figure out at all how to add tracks to the playlist.
I have gotten music to play but only by right clicking a file and clicking “Play to > Sonos Beam Media Renderer”. This opens another player which sends the music to the other player which sends it to the Beam.
Could somebody please talk me through how to add MP3’s stored on my PC into a playlist or if I can play MP3’s without using the rendere?
I will confess to still be using Windows 7. It’s on my to do list for the next couple of weeks. Not sure if that has an impact of any of the above.

You need to set up a Sonos Music Library. It is how Sonos was originally designed to work, before streaming came along. See this link:
Windows 7 is still supported. Download the Sonos app for Windows from the Sonos website and set the library up using that.
