sonos and podcasts
#1
i hit my frustration level with this - there is just no good integration for podcasts with sonos. i desperately want to continue listening where i leave off when i get home, but no. seems like something i should be able to do in 2015 (almost 2016!).

so here is my question - and no, i haven't tried this yet because i would need to get some extra components installed, so it's more high-level for those who may have done it.

can i load up iTunes to automatically download the latest X episodes of each podcast to which i subscribe, configure it through the iTunes tray app, get those podcasts into a repo of some form, and be able to actually play the podcast via my Sonos from CQC?

right now my iTunes all sync the scrubbing, so if im listening in the car i can just pick up where i left off on my laptop when i get home. would doing this through cqc do the same thing?

or does anyone have any other solution to this?

halp!

Sonos really needs to support AirPlay.

I use airsonos to airplay music from my iphone to the Sonos.

Note that ios9 broke the airplay protocol, so the windows build will not (yet) work. If you use anything lower than ios9, it works fine. I expect they'll push a new installer soon, since the underlying libraries have been fixed.

im going to give it a go via iTunes and see if I can import the podcasts that way. i prefer to keep everything streaming, but i might not be able to with these.

Have you thought about an airport express into a sonos input?

not really. id prefer to not use my phone at all. i tend to not carry it with me from room to room, so when i go from the kitchen to the office, id not have the ability to control them.

I spent some time on this... I couldn't get it to detect all of my speakers on linux and like you said Windows isn't working.

I'm shelving this for now. Looks like I need a plan B.
