Playing files on Android media server


Hi
I have Minix media server running Android 4.2.2 with Sonos installed and music files stored locally.
I would like to control this android media server from the Sonos controller on my android phone.

Ie select from my Sonos controller on the phone files to play which are on the Android media server.

Is it possible?

Thank you very much
Ofer

The Sonos app on the Minix may be able to play files using the This Mobile Device option. To play the files using any other Sonos controller you'd need an SMB/CIFS ('SAMBA') service, and get the Sonos system to index the files on the share.
Thank you. Indeed I installed Sonos locally on the media server and I can play the local files when accessing the local controller.

I can try using samba like you suggested.
Or maybe just move these files to a Windows machine on the same network and add remote library on Sonos...
