Arrow Community-supported Sonos software: Available here!

As the list of sticky threads was growing longer and longer, we decided to reference those excellent finds from this forum right here.

The links here will reference you to software that works well with Sonos, but isn't officially supported by Sonos. They are projects by forum members, supported by these members, not by Sonos. All of them are free, some of them open-source. Please respect any licensing and redistribution restrictions that may be applicable for these apps.

M3U4U: Workaround to access over 65.000 tracks through the library
Author: Ramses800
This tool allows you to automatically create a structure of M3U playlists that reference music on a different share, which is not indexed by Sonos directly. This mechanism allows to access those files by using the browse by folder option in the music menu. This is useful for users who have more than 65000 tracks, as Sonos won't hold more than that in its regular index.
