Hey folks, just wanted to let you know that with Jamcast Server 2.2 (released 7/21/2014) it's now possible to initiate Virtual Soundcard playback to any compatible renderer (including Sonos) directly from Windows!
To access this feature, simply right-click on the Jamcast icon in the Windows system tray and choose "Play Desktop Audio To". Choose a device from the menu and all desktop audio will immediately begin streaming. Check it out:
This feature works in the free version of Jamcast, but playback is limited to a single device at a time and is limited to 30 minutes. On the other hand, Jamcast Premium users enjoy unlimited playback to multiple devices at once (sorry, multi-room sync is not possible!).
Hope you enjoy this new feature, I got a lot of requests for it. If you run into any issues, please report them in the Jamcast Forums
Thanks and have fun!
