I recently found out, that you can use the "Stream-What-You-Hear",
to play your PC-sound on your Sonos-speakers.
"Stream-What-You-Hear" is free, except for possible donations (to make you feel even better).
There is a description by the user "Maik" on how to do it here:
I'll post the text below.
I find the solution very simple, and are using it in place of a more commercial solution I used to use.
If you don't set a port number (See Maik's Note), you will need to repeat step 2 and 3 each time you restart "Stream-What-You-Hear". I just chose the default port number suggested to me, 5901, and the entire URL ended looking like http://192.168.1.6:5901/stream/swyh.mp3
which is the URL the radio station should listen too.
the you will get a lag of a half to one second, so watching, say, youtube-videos will be less than optimal. Lets hope and pray, that Sonos implement a better build-in solution soon.
Hi guys!The features page states that Sonos systems aren’t supported, but they are! You will have to add the stream as a Radio Station to get it to work. Just follow these steps:
1. Go to your Sonos app on your PC and go to “Manage” –> “Add Radio Station…”
2. Right click on your SWYH icon in the task bar and go to “Tools” -> “HTTP Live Streaming”
3. Enter your streaming URL and the desired “Radio station” ( ) name and play!
Note: SWYH will use a different port when you start the app, so it is recommended to enter a specific HTTP port in your settings pane.
You can stream MP3 and PCM/L16.
