I am using Navidrome & Bonob to self-host my music library for the Sonos from Synology.  No SMB1 but you do need Docker.

https://www.navidrome.org

https://github.com/simojenki/bonob

The below instructions assume Docker is already installed and running on your Synology NAS.  I am on DSM 7.  Hopefully this helps some folks.  BTW - This works on S2 but doesn’t work with S1.

Download deluan/navidrome:latest

(https://hub.docker.com/r/deluan/navidrome)

Create container, click advanced settings

Check enable auto-restart

Choose Volume tab

Add a couple of folders:

Folder: “path to your music/” Mount path: “/music” (Check read-only)

Folder: “/path for container data” Mount path: “/data”

(I just created a “navidrome” folder inside of the docker folder in file station) so mine looks like:

Folder: “docker/navidrome” Mount path: “data”

Choose Network tab

Check Use same network as Docker Host

Choose Environment Tab

Environment – default settings are all good

Apply then next, check “Run this container after the wizard is finished”

Open another browser tab and go to http://ip address of syno:4533 it will ask you to create a user name and password and then you’ll see the library syncing

Back to the Synology

Download simojenki/bonob

Create container, click advanced settings

Check enable auto-restart

Choose Network tab

Check Use same network as Docker Host

Choose Environment Tab

Add four environment variables:

Variable:                                                          Value:

BONOB_SONOS_AUTO_REGISTER                 true

BONOB_SONOS_SERVICE_NAME                   Home Server (You can use anything you like)

BONOB_NAVIDROME_URL                            http://ip address of syno:4533

BONOB_URL                                                   http://ip address of syno:4534

Apply then next, check “Run this container after the wizard is finished”

Getting it working with Sonos (Direct from https://github.com/simojenki/bonob)

Initialising service within sonos app

  • Configure bonob, make sure to set BONOB_URL. bonob must be accessible from your sonos devices on BONOB_URL, otherwise it will fail to initialise within the sonos app, so make sure you test this in your browser by putting BONOB_URL in the address bar and seeing the bonob information page
  • Start bonob,
  • Open sonos app on your device
  • Settings -> Services & Voice -> + Add a Service
  • Select your Music Service, default name is 'bonob', can be overriden with configuration BONOB_SONOS_SERVICE_NAME
  • Press 'Add to Sonos' -> 'Linking sonos with bonob' -> Authorize
  • Your device should open a browser and you should now see a login screen, enter your navidrome credentials
  • You should get 'Login successful!'
  • Go back into the sonos app and complete the process
  • You should now be able to play music from navidrome
  • Within navidrome a new player will be created, 'bonob (username)', so you can configure transcoding specifically for sonos
