SONOS Driver Question
#4
(07-24-2019, 12:39 PM)Dean Roddey Wrote: You have to have a driver per UPnP media renderer. That's a high overhead sort of interface, so it's not really practical to try to control a home full of them via a single driver. In general, if it has its own connection between CQC and the device, then it requires a driver. If the thing that requires the connection is a system, like RA2 or Z-Wave, then that's just one driver because there's only one connection to it.

On the Plex thing, currently the Plex repo only understands movies in terms of metadata.

Thanks. So what's the best way to use SONOS for simple streaming services that are added to SONOS as media sources (e.g., Pandora, etc.)?

This is why I had brought up the Subsonic as a music source. http://www.subsonic.org/pages/api.jsp It does a much better job of acting as a media server than PLEX, IMHO. I had originally worked with the author when I proposed to him adding SONOS support many years ago. It runs locally and requires no Internet access.

So, it looks like I or someone would have to write a Subsonic driver and use that in place of PLEX?
