How to get Sonos at Music destination when playing a Movie

sonos

#1

I´ve bought a Sonos, because i read the following article:

https://www.plex.tv/apps/streaming-devices/sonos/

It says : "Support for all file types (well, virtually all), including hi-fi music and video formats."

Either at the Sonos or the Plex app i found any way to let my movies run and let sonos play the sound of it.

If this feature doesnt work, i just can say: "well done, pushing a customer (plex premium and sonos) into a direction to buy anything and doesnt get the full feature set what is promised"!

RTFM.

I assume you don't have the correct Sonos gear required for what you're describing. I use Sonos with Plex every day.

Minimum Requirements:
1 Sonos Playbar/Playbase

Recommend:
1 Sonos Playbar,
1 Sonos Sub,
4 Sonos Play:1

*Alternatively​
2 Sonos Play:5 (stereo),
2 Sonos Play:1 (stereo),
1 Sonos Sub,
1 Chromecast Audio (play;5 left) ♦,
1 AUX cable (play:5 right) ♣

♦ Chromecast Audio because it beats the hell out of using that horrible Sonos controller... And because now you can cast to Sonos from all your Plex apps.
♣ Use the aux from your tv, receiver, computer, etc to your Play:5 and setup AutoPlay in the Sonos co troller for that speaker. If you can tolerate an additional 70ms of voice to video lag...
