I’ve recently invested in a Sonos system and am about to send it all back. I bought Sonos specifically because it CLAIMS to work with Plex. I don’t subscribe to streaming music services because I have spent a lifetime accumulating my own collection/library.
I can view, browse, and begin playback of my music but then Sonos often skips tracks all together saying they cannot be accessed. When this behavior happens it will skip multiple tracks. Sometimes half way through a track it’ll skip to the next one without finishing the one I was just listening to.
I have tested that all the tracks work. I can play all of them directly from my computer, any of the plex apps on my network or remotely. I use Plex in my car all the time with no issues. This happens whether I’m trying to play from the Sonos app OR if I try casting from Plex to Sonos within my home network. This problem is most certainly a Sonos problem.
Additionally, when I am playing music from my Plex server on my own network, the plex dashboard shows a remote connection to the Sonos servers in Ashburn, VA whether using plex to cast to Sonos OR from the Sonos app. Is it really streaming my music from my home, to Virginia and back to my home?
