How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

There are tons of posts about how to stream computer audio to Sonos, almost all of which say you can’t, or that you have to use a line-in approach with a Connect. I just did it wirelessly in less than five minutes and $0. Note this is only for Windows, and has a several-second delay, so it won’t help with video or games, but audio is just fine. I know there is something similar for Mac, but I have not tried it, and have heard it might have issues.

  1. Download and install Stream What You Hear (https://www.streamwhatyouhear.com/download/).
  2. Launch the app using the Start menu shortcut.
  3. Right-click on the app’s icon in the system tray.
  4. Go to Tools > HTTP Live Streaming.
  5. Copy the on-screen URL.
  6. Open the Sonos app.
  7. Go to Manage > Add Radio Station.
  8. Paste in the URL and give the link a name.
  9. Click OK.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player+22

Has it gotten better than it used to be. audio quality when I used to use it wasn’t the best.

I have long since just connected my computer to a Sonos with input (currently a Play:5 … used to be a Connect).

But great post though!

The latest version can right click and stream to the Sonos immediately. Great piece of infomation!

My SONOS disconnects and reconnects to the WiFi network intermittently. Other streaming services have adequate buffering to maintain continuous playback, but [stream what you hear] apparently doesn’t, resulting in start-and-stop playback.

Based on symptoms reported by others, this seems to be a common problem.

Since you are a happy user of [stream what you hear], can you tell us what your secret of success is? Tweaking parameters on [stream what you hear], perhaps?

I’ve been using these steps over the last week as a workaround to not having airplay/line in on any of my Sonos speakers (2017 Sonos home theater w/ play 3’s and a pair of 2017 play 1’s in separate bedrooms). It’s been great for all the artist streams on various platforms. YouTube audio has been by far the best – twitch still sounds like a tin can.

Is there a fix for web videos out of sync? Whenever I play something on YouTube or any other web video, the SWYH sound lags enough to be visibly out of sync with the video and makes it very unpleasant to watch. Is there some way to adjust for this, or is it just an inherent limitation that makes SWYH suitable for listening but not for viewing?

Not that I am aware of. You might get a much reduced lag if your PC has Bluetooth by getting a compatible Bluetooth receiver and plugging it into your Play:5 line in.

It would be nice to have this natively supported within the Sono app right?

Never going to happen.

Sonos want you to spend money on something with a line-in to get this functionality. Notice none of their cheaper products have it.

They probably have an agreement with their music services to not do this via software. A lot of people wouldn’t bother using a music service either if they can stream it from YouTube etc.

It’s designed this way for a reason. $$$$$

Atleast they let us use this half-baked solution.

By this logic, Sonos would never have implemented Airplay 2. Except there is no logic in this post. No evidence, no sense, no thought.

Another solution is to use Airfoil for Windows. Unfortunately it’s no longer in active development since December 2019 but the last version 5.7.0 supports streaming Windows system audio or any app audio to Airplay and Sonos speakers. I’m listening on my Sonos One as I type this reply

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

The solution works on my system, thank you very much for the hint. But I was disappointed by the audio quality, if I play Youtube on my PC Speakers (high quality) it’s much better than on the Sonos One. It must be something bad with the transmission because I don’t complain at all about the Sonos audio quality in general. Any idea why the quality sucks via swyh?

Sonos speakers are great but it can also be incredibly annoying that you can’t play your own music through many of them easily and have to use Sonos’s own curated app to listen to services through.

In the main this is fine but one thing that has been highlighted during all our lockdowns is that we haven’t really been able to listen to many of the shows, DJs, and events broadcast live on YouTube through our expensive speaker solution.

This has led me to jerry-rigging laptops to Bluetooth speakers through into the garden just to listen to live broadcasts. It’s 2020, life shouldn’t be like that, I want to stream the audio to my Sonos: Play 1 speaker setup through my house.

With a little bit of know-how though you can trick your Sonos into playing whatever your PC is playing and beam it magically to anywhere in your home.

First, you are going to need a great little piece of Windows software called Stream What you Hear – go and download and install that for starters.

Once it has installed itself it will make a new home for yourself in your taskbars apps section.

Find it and right-click on it. From here you may have to do one of two things. The easiest way to get it working is if you select the Stream To > option and simply select any devices that are shown there. As you can see from the image it can see my Sonos speakers as well as my TV and my Xbox One. Tick the ones you need and it will instantly start broadcasting the audio from your PC to your selections.

So make sure you have whatever DJ set or something that you want to listen to playing on YouTube and check it is going through your sound system. Result!

Should you Sonos devices not be shown there is a further step you can do you achieve the same end product.

Select Tools and then HTTP Live Streaming. A box will appear with a local URL in it. Copy that URL now.

Now open the Sonos app on your PC ( download it here if you don’t have it already but you should have). Select Manage from the top menu and then Add Radio Station. Paste in the URL and give your new stream a name. That’s that done. For good measure select Update Music Library Now.

Now go to the Sonos app on your phone. Select the Radio service (which may be listed as Radio by TuneIn depending on your location. And then within My Radio Stations, you will find the stream you just created and can broadcast to your heart’s content.

It really does open up a new way to use your Sonos ecosystem as there have been so many great live events during the pandemic. You can even record the stream to your Hard Drive on your PC for later listening too which can also come in really handy.

I've been looking for multi room audio, or at least just wifi speakers (so I don't need the proximity of Bluetooth) for a while, and now with Christmas money, I'm ready to make the plunge.

But I don't want to have to wait on special app support. Can you just cast any audio to the sonos? Or is there a competitor you'd recommend?

Specifically I want to listen to the Android npr app, pod casts, YouTube, and audio books.

I thought that sonos would have a chromecast type setup, but it doesn't appear so.

You'd have to use the line-input on a Connect or Play5 to get all the audio from your Android phone. To do it wirelessly use a Bluetooth audio receiver.

Unfortunately as of now, you are limited to the Sonos app. That app does not support Youtube. However I believe it can support audiobook downloads, and I've listened to NPR/podcasts through the supported app Stitcher. I believe a Play: 5 also has line-in access, so you can connect your phone to it directly to play whatever the phone would be playing.

I do not like the Sonos app, and I hope they update their software so we can play whatever we want directly from the phone. For what it's worth, I've seen a lot of reviews saying they like the Sonos app because it aggregates all of your music and sound sources, with the exception of a few.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

Sonos is a brand like no other. Its quality speakers and the flexibility of installing in any room makes it the preferred choice for many audio lovers. For those who’re on their computers most of the time, but want to use Sonos, it could be a problem because Sonos doesn’t offer computer-specific speakers — at least not at the time of writing this article. Moreover, from 2019 onwards, it has discontinued the feature of setting up the speakers from your PC as the company prioritizes mobile.

But does that mean it’s the end of the road for PC? Not really. You can still play music on the Sonos speaker installed in your room from the computer. In this article, we’ll explain to you how you can still set up the speakers.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

Sonos Speakers to Computer

Playing Audio on Sonos Speakers from Computer

Before you start playing audio on Sonos from your computer, you need to understand that Sonos is a closed system. This means that only Sonos controllers and apps can access and control the speakers.

It has exclusive partnerships with services like AirPlay, Spotify, and IKEA, among others, which allows these services to connect to Sonos via the S1 or S2 app. But that’s not the case with PCs and laptops.

Sonos no longer allows setting up the SonosNet system from Windows, or MacBook for that matter. This is now a mobile app-only feature. While the Sonos Controller App is still available and you can download it, you’d only be able to play music and not set up the system from scratch. So if you have already set up your system on your mobile, you can connect to it from the desktop app. Visit the Sonos Controller App download page and get the Sonos S2 or S1 app for Windows or macOS version.

If you’re setting up the SonosNet system, there’s no way but to set up the system from the app only.

However, if you want to connect directly to the Sonos speakers from your computer for the purpose of playing audio, you’d need third-party software. There are many software packages that enable this capability. But two of the main ones are SonoAir and SWYH or Stream What You Hear. SonoAir is for MacBooks while SWYH is for Windows. Here we’ll guide you through the process.

SonoAir

If you’re on MacBook and want to connect to Sonos, then you should be using the SonoAir project. It is an open-source project (technically speaking, a node.js module) that lets you stream audio from your MacBook over AirPlay. SonoAir also extends the AirConnect project, whose main goal is to play audio to Sonos, Chromecast, and other wireless devices directly from AirPlay.

AirConnect can connect to any device that has access to your local network. It will detect the Sonos speakers and act as a bridge.

Here are the steps involved:

  • To start using SonoAir, download the software package on to your MacBook. Since this is not an official Apple app, you need to download it from its official website, which can be found here.
  • Install the package and give it permission to whatever the requests are.
  • Go to the menu and look for the AirPlay option. It should show you the Sonos speakers available in the network.
  • Now get Sonos Connect and wire your PC to the line-in on the Connect. This will link the Sonos app to the computer’s audio output.
  • In the AutoPlay menu, you must set the Sonos speakers as your default speakers.

The current version of SonoAir also works fine with High Sierra after it switched from AirSonos to AirConnect.

Since Sonos Speakers are designed to stream music, there might be a slight mismatch between the audio and video output. You can solve this from the Sonos Controller app using the Audio Delay feature. Check out this guide.

SonoAir is a community-based project and is supported by donations. This means, you’re supposed to do everything from end-to-end, and there might not be any support from the team.

The best alternative to SonoAir is AudioBridge. It offers a much simpler process, and there’s a paid version too that you can use.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

SWYH

If you’re running Windows on your PC, then your best option is Stream What You Hear. This is an open-source project and developed in .NET framework.

To get started with SWYH, here are the steps involved:

  • Download the SWYH package on to your Windows PC.
  • Install the package and launch the app.
  • From the app’s icon menu, right-click on the system tray.
  • Then navigate to Tools>HTTP Live Streaming.
  • Here you’ll find a URL that you need to copy. Copy the URL to paste somewhere.
  • Open the Sonos app and navigate into Manage>Add Radio Station
  • Paste the above URL in here and save it.

Now you can use this “radio station” to play audio from your PC on your Sonos speakers. Just make sure that you have audio running on your PC. Otherwise, this feature may fail to detect it.

Please note that SWYH is an open-source project, and you might not get any assistance when you encounter an error. Therefore, it’s better to go with a paid application instead.

The final thing you should know that Sonos, as a company, do not recommend these methods. In fact, they’re against tuning your speakers and discourage users from doing so. The process explained to you is a workaround that has been using by many users around the world.

The closest you can get to computer-enabled speakers from Sonos is the Play:1 and Sonos One. While they don’t exactly function as a computer speaker should, you can connect to them using the Sonos desktop app. At least that’s what the official statement from Sonos is.

Since Sonos is distancing itself from desktop and focusing more on mobile instead, it remains to see what the future holds for PC users.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

When you got your new Sonos player, you probably found it easy to set up. It even offers to automatically scan your music folder. What you may not realize is that you can also add a variety of music streaming services.

You can’t play whatever you want using any media player or browser on your Sonos player. You have to use the Sonos app, so being able to add services like Spotify and Pandora is pretty cool and convenient. Otherwise, if you were only able to play the music on your hard drive, the Sonos system would have fairly limited value.

That’s not to say you don’t have a great collection of tunes laying around on your hard drive, but there’s a whole world of music out there you haven’t yet heard, which is why streaming services have such great appeal. Before we begin however, we should point out that many of these services require you to subscribe (that is, pay up) in order to use them with Sonos.

To add music services to your Sonos player, you first need to make sure you register your device. You’ll be prompted to do so at the end of the initial setup, but if you elected to do this at another time, you’ll only be able to do Scrobbling with Last.fm. If you’re kicking yourself for not registering when you had a chance, fear not, it’s easy to do so at any time by clicking the “Manage” menu on the Sonos app and choosing “Check for Software Updates”.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

On the mobile app, tap “Settings” and then “Online Updates”.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

Once registered, you can start adding streaming services to your heart’s content. On the desktop application, you can do it two ways. Head to Manage > Service Settings.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

Next, click the “+” button on Mac or the “Add” button on Windows to add a music service.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

Now, just pick the service you want to add and supply your login information.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

Alternatively, you can click the “Add Music Services” button under Select a Music Source to achieve the same result.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

On a mobile device such as iPhone or Android, the process is similar. The most obvious way to do it is to tap the button on the menu that says “Add Music Services”.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

Or, you can tap the “Settings” button and then “My Services”.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

Regardless, either method will take you to the My Services screen where you can “Add Another Account”.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

Again, once you choose the service you want to add, you will need to supply your login credentials if you’re already a subscriber. If you aren’t, you’ll be prompted to set up a new account in a new browser window.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

If you don’t see all the services listed, tap the dropdown menu in the upper-left corner and select “All Services”.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

The only limit to the services are those to which you subscribe, though again, some services like Spotify won’t let you use it with Sonos unless you’re a premium subscriber. Still, if you are a subscriber, it’s great that you can actually make the most of your new Sonos players listening to the music services that you love.

I imagine this question is asked pretty frequently in some analog or another, but despite all my research, I haven't been able to resolve this particular issue.

I've just recently acquired two Play:1's, two Play:3's, and a Playbar (and man, they're amazing). I'm looking to cast the audio portion of video from my PC to the Play:3 in the same room. This can be done easily enough through SPDIF/Line-in via the playbar, but I haven't found another strong solution outside of buying a CONNECT (which I've decided I won't do).

I got pretty close to resolving this issue by using a program that would just push via UPnP/DLNA straight to the speaker (like Jamcast), and then accounting for the latency b/w audio & video by playing it in VLC (and using the audio desynchronization compensation property). This sort of works, unfortunately when using Jamcast the audio completely cut outs every 20-30 seconds ( I haven't found a similar alternative; VLC streaming and device capture has been a pain and largely unsuccessful. Any suggestions?) , and then resumes after about 5s or so. Everything I've read suggests this being a bandwidth/contention issue, but I'm suspect of this being the cause as every other avenue of streaming to Sonos works without incident.

Anyone else having this issue? Any ideas on resolution?

EDIT: Stream What You Hear is not an alternative. It only supports 2-channel audio devices (it crashes if launched, otherwise), and I use a Logitech G930 7.1 channel wireless SS headset.

EDIT2: Well Shit. I spent the past 12 hours messing with numerous audio capture scenarios trying to fix the choppy audio. I grabbed:

Airsonos to try with Airplay applications

None of it worked. I tried hardwiring my Play:3 into the router, and changing the wireless channel to 11 (while changing SonosNet to 1). Nothing. I then tried playing the video again through Jamcast, but this time without VLC (which I could have sworn I had done numerous times already). No choppy playback. Multiple videos. It was caused by VLC.

So, anyone know of any software that can delay video and pull streams from URLs or know why VLC might be causing compatibility issues with device capture?

EDIT3 – Some Success! – Ok, so I found out that the Home Theater version of Plex supports audio offsets both forward and back. Setting the audio offset to +3200ms looks pretty spot on for the few youtube videos I tried. Take into consideration this will only work if you can get it playing in Plex, which for some internet content might not work unless you're savvy enough to write a channel for it, or can queue it up. It's also a bit of a hassle if all you want is to show someone a youtube video real quick like with audio, but it's better than having that god-awful audio desynch.

How to stream any audio from your pc to a sonos player

Sonos doesn’t make computer speakers. Despite how closely the Play:1 and One speakers look the part, they don’t work like traditional computer speakers. In order to stream music from your laptop or desktop to any Sonos speaker, you need to use Sonos desktop app, as the Sonos app only works with services like Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music and Tidal. This means that anything else you play on your computer, be it a movie, YouTube video or iMessage notification, won’t play through your Sonos speakers.

There are some ways to beat the system, however. SonoAir is a third-party software patch that lets you stream audio from your Mac to any Sonos speakers over AirPlay, but it’s a little sketchy and Mac and MacBook Pro users running High Sierra have been having mixed results. You can check out this YouTube video, which will walk you through it. PCs won’t work with SonoAir because they don’t support AirPlay.

The more sure-fire way to turn your Sonos speakers into computer speakers isn’t as easy — and you can dig this information up on Sonos forums — but you can buy a Sonos Port ($449). The streamer is typically used to stream music to analog speakers or to sync those speakers to your existing multi-room system. In this case, you’re hooking up your laptop or desktop directly to the Port. Here’s how you do it.

Once you get the Sonos Port, you need to wire the laptop or desktop you’re using to the line-in input on the Port. This will link your computer’s audio to the Sonos app; now, open the Sonos app, go to Settings, Room Settings and then choose the Sonos speakers you want to use as your new computer speakers. In the Autoplay menu, you’ll also want to select these speakers so that these Sonos are your default computer speakers. That’s it. (You can read more about line-in and autoplay on Sonos’s support page.)

Disclaimer: Sonos does not recommend doing this. Its speakers, specifically the Play:1 and Sonos One, are designed to just stream music. When I spoke to Sonos employee, via its website chat tool, they said there will likely be a 30-millisecond delay between the audio and video. To get a more accurate A/V sound, you really need an optical connection, like on Sonos Playbase or Playbar. That same employee suggested that if I was committed to using Sonos speakers as my computer speakers, that I go with a PLAY:5. Unlike the Play:1 and Sonos One, the Play:5 has a 3.5mm, meaning I wouldn’t have to setup autoplay through the app.

Turning your Sonos speakers is difficult and pricey, admittedly, and Sonos itself frowns against it. But as speakers get more and more capable, it’s getting more difficult for customers to understand why we can’t use one speaker for everything in the home. Plus, Sonos’s computer app feels nothing like the intuitive Sonos app on your phone, so if there’s a way around having to use it — I’m all for it.

If you’re interested in testing the Sonos Port option to at least see how your current Sonos speakers work as computer speakers, Sonos has a 45-day return policy.
