Hi @jonmyatt, Thank you for reaching out and welcome to the community. Thanks for bringing this up and we understand where you're coming from.

Let us know how you get on with the advice above.

Hi. I am getting the same issues constantly. Very frustrating. While listening to a long mix sometimes it just skips to the next mix. I get “Unable to play. connection was lost”message a lot, esp if trying to manually scrub to the middle of a mix. Your link above says the status of mixcloud is ok, but it keeps happening and is frustrating. I just tried deleting the service and re connecting in the app. That seemed to help for a bit, but then was just listening to a favorite mix and after about 45 mins it skipped again!! seems pretty random.

Hi I am having the same issues.  It worked fine before but as of yesterday, it gives error message  “Unable to play. Connection was lost to Mixcloud”.  Your status of Mixcloud says it is fully operational.  I also deleted the service and reconnected but it continues to provide error message.

Likewise, I'm not able to play any Mixcloud content today. However, I'm pretty sure I could last week. Not sure if it's related to this August issue, but another post sent me here and this was the most recent known Mixcloud issue I've seen.

Saw another recent post on Reddit about Sonos not being able to establish a Mixcloud connection as well, so I'm thinking this is a system thing on one vendor end or the other.

Hi @scolford, Thank you for reaching out and welcome to the community. Sorry to know about this issue about Mixcloud on your Sonos system. I check and we do not have any ongoing outage or issues with the music service, Have you tried to remove and readd the Music service? Also, try it from a different controller device where you have the Sonos App to check if it will work.

If there is anything else I can do for you, please, don’t hesitate to let us know.

The Sonos community is always here to help.

Hi, @Simon B.

I’m afraid the issue is intermittent. Sometimes it works fine (like today), but at other times, a playlist will start and then fail, skipping to the next item in the queue which fails, and so on. And sometimes, I get zilch on Sonos, but the Mixcloud app on my phone works fine. Reauthorizing the service doesn’t make a difference, unfortunately.

It’s the same old stuff that is mentioned by many others in other threads around here. Notably, this very recent one I hadn’t seen until today:

I don’t expect you to solve it for me, specifically. I’m just adding my voices to the issue that is obviously not user-specific.

Thanks,

Scot

Seems OK today, yesterday Sonos had the Mixcloud listed as not working on there services page.

I have been getting "song not encoded correctly or "unable to connect" quite a lot recently.
