Hi, I have no problem with straming to my SONOS-device.17 December 2013 at 16 h 21 min #4180
How? I am getting a coding error for swyh.wav (and swyh.mp3).18 December 2013 at 10 h 52 min #4181
Ok, got it from Sonos Forum.
You have to add a radio station.
For pcm you have to use swyh.wav.
Works like a charm – thank you very much for developing and providing this great piece of software!18 December 2013 at 12 h 16 min #4182
Stimmt im Sonos-Forum hatte ich es auch gepostet 🙂
@Sebastien – Thank you too verry much for this tool. I testet hours with VLC. With SWYH it took me 5 minutes.21 December 2013 at 12 h 30 min #4187
SWYH and Sonos works like a charm with a newly created radio station. I’ve configured SWYH to always use the same port; so I should be able to use the same radio station in Sonos everytime I want to stream my PC sound.
But it rarely works to use an old station. Instead I have to go into Sonos and add a new radio station with the exact same URL as the old one.
Any ideas why this happens? (Some auxilary information: I have a Sonos bridge that is permanently connected to my home network. I run SWYH on up to 3 laptops simultaneously. The laptops travel around and move between different networks. I almost never rebot my laptops but they are quite often put to sleep during transportations. )20 March 2014 at 22 h 55 min #4866
Mikael Sjödin. most likely your router have DHCP and laptops get a different IP each time. Sonos might be looking up ip from name when you add only (guess) and then just use IP. At least this would explain.
Try to force laptops to always get same IP.24 March 2014 at 14 h 16 min #4871
I managed to pair SWYH with Sonos Connect too. Works well both with mp3 and pcm streaming.
The only problem is the quality of the sound. When I stream tracks through SWYH to Sonos, the sound totally lacks bass and low-mid frequencies. It looks like SWYH cuts frequencies during the encoding process.
When I play the same tracks directly through Sonos player, they sound perfectly and no issues with bass frequencies.
Has anybody noticed that?19 November 2014 at 16 h 53 min #5039
In the settings of SWYH, change the bitrate to the highest one in the list. It dramatically improves the quality.29 December 2014 at 3 h 27 min #5157
Same here. It seems to work just fine except for the sound quality. It sounds too tinny and lacks depth.
Does the SWYH team have a solution to this?15 February 2015 at 10 h 49 min #5221
I am using Sonos Play 1 and i tried to use Stream-What-You-Hear. I have tried with the specific port number but still when i try to play via Sonos via its PC controller v5.2 it gives an error saying unable to connect to swyh.mp3 – cant connect to my http live streaming link (http://192.168.1.111:8080/stream/swyh.mp3)
Please help.3 June 2015 at 21 h 35 min #5377
I had the same issue (the lack of depth in the streamed audio)…
After some googling and testing, I found out that it was not a SWYH problem but a problem caused by the IDT SRS audio-software that was – by default – installed on my (HP) laptop.
I uninstalled the IDT software and now everything sounds fantastic!3 June 2015 at 21 h 47 min #5378
I’m not 100% sure that it will solve your problem, but I would advice you to select a new port number: port 8080, which you use, is a port that is used for http-traffic.
Probably your Sonos device uses this port for its http-traffic and it is therefore not able to access your audio-stream.
I use port 5901 on a Sonos Play1: works flawless!3 July 2015 at 12 h 37 min #7155
Absolutely awesome! I can only get it to play in 192k mp3 mode but I wonder if thats just the setting. Because playing flac in this mp3 mode sound FANTASTIC. If I use a higher mp3 settings I get latency and choppy sound. Not complaining though. Thank you!!!

UPDATED (same day):
After you set the port to what came up automatically and SWYH restarts, you need to go to TuneIn Radio in Sonos, and edit the station you created to reflect the new port.
I got the port sorted (I think) but I now get an error message saying “unable to connect to 192.168.1.3:49317
Thank you.1 May 2016 at 19 h 26 min #11819
I confirm Tim’s suggestion. I also removed this IDT package from my HP-Probook.
From now the sound is great on my Sonos.
