How to Stream Any Audio from Your PC to a Sonos Player

The Sonos media controller app on windows is almost perfect, but it does have limitations. For example, it has apesky 65,000-song limit , anddespite an abundance of streaming services , you can’t stream things like YouTube and sporting events.

Fortunately, thereis a pretty handy app that lets you work around the Sonos controller’s few limitations. Stream What You Hear (SWYH) is a simple open source application that runs in your Windows taskbar, allowing you to hearanything playing throughyour desktop PC onyour Sonos device.

This means if you use another music application to handle a massive library of MP3s, or have a lot of YouTube playlists, or you just want to listen to the ball game around the house, you can with Sonos and Stream What You Hear.

Step One: Set up Stream What You Hear

Before we dive in, we should point out that there is one notabledrawback to Stream What You Hear: lag. No matter whatyou play, there will be about a two-second delay.

This means that videos won’t sync with audio, and media controls won’t respond instantly. It’s not a huge deal, but it mighttake a little getting used to (and it means you can’t watch YouTube videos, only listen to the audio from them).

To set everything up, make sure you’re runningthe Sonos media controller software for Windows.You also need to download, install, and run the SWYH app . Additionally, if you don’t have it already, you will need the .NET Framework 4.0 .

Once SWYH is installed and running, right-click on its taskbar icon and click “Settings”.

Whenever you start or restart SWYH, it will use a different port for HTTP live streaming. To work around this, you can forceit to use a specific port.

Check the box next to “Use specific HTTP port”. The default port is 5901, so you can leave it likethat, provided you haven’t configured another program to use that port already. Click “OK” when you’re done.
