I know this is a video forum but because my question concerns Windows Media Encoder, I was hoping to get an answer here
I would like to play Last.fm radio through the speakers of my Sonos system (system for wireless music). Since this is not supported by Sonos by default I found the following solution:
Sonos Forums - View Single Post - Using Last.fm scrobbling outside Germany, UK and the US
On this page someone explains how to use Windows Media Encoder to make a stream based on your standard audio device on your PC or laptop. This stream can then be played using the Sonos system. This means that if you would play Last.fm radio on the PC/laptop, it would be streamed and could then be played by Sonos.
This seems like a good solution for me but I cannot manage to create the WME stream. I have done exactly as explained in the post mentioned above but I don't succeed. I receive the following messages in this order (in Dutch, translation below images):
Translating the first three images from Dutch to English:
- Following error has occured during setting the source Live: cannot find the device driver (0xC00D0072)
- Use the codec Windows Media Audio 9 Professional when coding multi-channel audio data
- The media input 'device://high defenition audio-device' for source Live is not valid
The screenshot at the bottom is not an error message but is to show that I cannot select "standard device" for "audiogegevens" (meaning audio data). Maybe WME does not recognize my standard audio device? Or is "meerkanaals WAV bestand" (multi channel WAV file) always the only option here?
My sound card is working properly, I can also play Last.fm radio and other sounds on the speakers of my laptop.
Someone has an idea?
