Sonos + YouTube = SonosTube

Sketch

You can't send the sound of YouTube videos to your Sonos speaker, unless you are using a special app like SonosTube. Thanks, Tommy Oustad.

I'm using Chromecast to TV with Playbar. Works great as well.

If you happen to be in the same room as the TV, yes. Then I would use my Apple TV. But I am not.

Your post sums up Sonos problem nicely.

from a server point, this is also possible with AirSonos that you mentioned a few days back when you swallow the lag. Even I got this to work on a RasPi, so one wonders why Sonos is not able to integrate this into their software stack.

Concerning AirSonos: I have it running on an Synology NAS 1517+. Lag is ok, maybe 5 seconds. But: did anyone notice that it messes up the mesh network? Sometimes, after I use it, speakers seem to be lost for no particular reason. It’s not reproducible. Not really anyway.

Any ideas how I can pinpoint the problem? ( I am aware of the fact, that there doesn’t need to be a connection between AirSonos and my problem. But for now that seems to be the case)

AFAIK it can't play in the backgroud, right? Or with screen off?

Lag of 5 seconds is totally unacceptable for me when I am interested in both audio AND video. Not even OK for sounds of desktop notifications if notification is hidden before I hear the sound. Because of that I didn't find anything useful about AirSonos when I tried it a while ago.

Benjamin Bock, 2018-01-16

Transmitting audio is time-sensitive. Buffers make sure there is always something to process and that the transmission does not introduce jitter. AirSonos errs on the safe side and is indeed unfit when a low latency is desired. 5 seconds is way too high for anything but listening to music on a single speaker.

Sonos never found Airplay to be good enough. Airplay 2 is better, but still not on the same level of audio synchronisation that Sonos provides. It's one of the core inventions of Sonos that enables multiroom audio.
