Basically AirSonos is a software that you can install on your Mac and then you will basically be able to play any sound from your Mac to your Sonos speakers. It is very straightforward, install the software and then play the sound of your Mac on your Sonos speakers. – user689771 Feb 9 '17 at 4:59. If not it can result in the person not having proper audio or video for the streaming video. Audio will be played only through the Mac Desktop and not through the Apple TV. What is the benefit of streaming to the Apple TV? - When VLC videos are streamed from the Mac to the Apple TV, the Apple TV can support almost all types of video files and formats. VLC Player No Sound Solution VLC Player is a widely used player and encoder that supports many video and audio formats. Like other software, VLC users may experience various technical problems. Audio Cast for Sonos Speaker also can stream the audio of any app on your Mac to supported outputs on your network. Whether it's music in iTunes or Spotify, a concert played in VLC or QuickTime, or a radio station played in Safari or Chrome, Audio Cast for Sonos Speaker wirelessly casts all the sounds to the selected devices with minimum audio.
Hey there, I imagine this question is asked pretty frequently in some analog or another, but despite all my research, I haven't been able to resolve this particular issue. I've just recently acquired two Play:1's, two Play:3's, and a Playbar (and man, they're amazing). I'm looking to cast the audio portion of video from my PC to the Play:3 in the same room.
This can be done easily enough through SPDIF/Line-in via the playbar, but I haven't found another strong solution outside of buying a CONNECT (which I've decided I won't do). I got pretty close to resolving this issue by using a program that would just push via UPnP/DLNA straight to the speaker (like Jamcast), and then accounting for the latency b/w audio & video by playing it in VLC (and using the audio desynchronization compensation property). This sort of works, unfortunately when using Jamcast the audio completely cut outs every 20-30 seconds ( I haven't found a similar alternative; VLC streaming and device capture has been a pain and largely unsuccessful. Any suggestions?), and then resumes after about 5s or so.
Everything I've read suggests this being a bandwidth/contention issue, but I'm suspect of this being the cause as every other avenue of streaming to Sonos works without incident. Anyone else having this issue? Any ideas on resolution? EDIT: Stream What You Hear is not an alternative. It only supports 2-channel audio devices (it crashes if launched, otherwise), and I use a Logitech G930 7.1 channel wireless SS headset. EDIT2: Well Shit.
You change the password while logged on to the instance itself, just as you would on any other Windows Server. The user account must have permission to access the instance remotely. • Create another user account with administrator privileges on the instance. Amazon fire remote app for mac. • Change the administrator password from the default value. Another account with administrator privileges is a safeguard if you forget the administrator password or have a problem with the administrator account.
I spent the past 12 hours messing with numerous audio capture scenarios trying to fix the choppy audio. I grabbed: • to try with Airplay applications • • with playback capture None of it worked. I tried hardwiring my Play:3 into the router, and changing the wireless channel to 11 (while changing SonosNet to 1). I then tried playing the video again through Jamcast, but this time without VLC (which I could have sworn I had done numerous times already).
No choppy playback. Multiple videos. It was caused by VLC. So, anyone know of any software that can delay video and pull streams from URLs or know why VLC might be causing compatibility issues with device capture? EDIT3 - Some Success! - Ok, so I found out that the supports audio offsets both forward and back.
Setting the audio offset to +3200ms looks pretty spot on for the few youtube videos I tried. Take into consideration this will only work if you can get it playing in Plex, which for some internet content might not work unless you're savvy enough to write a channel for it, or can queue it up. It's also a bit of a hassle if all you want is to show someone a youtube video real quick like with audio, but it's better than having that god-awful audio desynch.
