I have installed Plex on a Synology 218+. I have a large library of music files that were created using iTunes. All Artists/Album in nested folders. Plex tested and working on a Mac. Plex app in iPad can also “see” library and play on that device as well.
I have also added Plex in Sonos App (v. 10.4.2)
In Sonos app, I select Browse music → Other Sources. Plex Music Folder does not show up. So I cannot play personal music library on our Sonos. Have been working on this for hours. Very frustrating. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

No it doesn’t. But thanks. I’m curious though, has anyone got Plex to work on their Sonos?
Well, I did have it working at one stage, but it was so poor that I removed it. The Sonos version is nothing like the main version, being limited in the way that it presents music - particularly if you have a mix of classical and contemporary music. Frankly, it was a mess. As I understand it, this is down to Plex, not Sonos, and there seems no impetus from Plex to improve the situation.
Is the reason that you want to use Plex down to the library size? If so, it might be worth looking at casting, instead. I run a media server on my Synology, from which I can cast either to a Chromecast Audio plugged in to the Play 5, or direct to the Sonos devices themselves. Seems much more capable than the Plex approach, as it supports a folders view.
