Question Can you play Netflix sound through Sonos speakers?

    I've done a bit of a Google and "Soundflowerbed" seemed to be "a" possible solution but only seems to be working on Mac OS up to about 10.5'ish - I'm on Yosemite 10.10.5 which doesn't seem to be compatible

    At the moment I'm playing through the stereo by using an audio lead into the headphone socket on the mac and into the stereo - it works, it's fine

    BUT

    I've got a set of shiny new Sonos speakers on 100 days free trial and I'm trying to extract the most use out of them before not sending them back - at the moment I'm more than happy but getting Netflix to play through them would make me delighted

    I and a great many people out there want the same thing.

    Any joy?

    I doubt it's possible. To get a stream playing, probably doable with some level of fiddling, but to get it appropriately synched (i.e. not lagging way behind the video) with something you can't offset (i.e. Netflix rather than a more technical media player) is probably not going to happen.

    Not as pure audio you'd have to set up the play bar first I believe.

    I tried connecting my Sonos Connect to the TV when I first got it but, like you suggest, there was a lag so I gave up.
    TBH, I wasn't too fussed as the speakers on my, now very old TV, are pretty good anyway.

    That's the problem with these new fangled soundbars. They're not ideal for audio/video sync because of complex audio processing times. It's bollocks basically.
