I want (and the original asker of this question wants) a program that can be installed on multiple computers and controlled from either one but play the same music at the SAME TIME no matter where you are. The result would be you and your friend could listen to the same music at the exact same time, either of you would be able to add to the playlist or pause the music.

So it's really good, it looks something like this: http://buffalotech.c...ion-pro-ls-xhl/ but mine is a bit older, I bought it 3 years ago.

TightVNC will let you transfer music files, or any shared file from on network computer to the next.-reply by Ed Nichols

No, the question was about how to create something like Sonos using freely available software. The answer, as mentioned above includes setups like iTunes+Airtunes, pulseaudio, slimserver, VLC, etc. The problem is usually with multi-client audio sync, which is why Airfoil+Airfoil speakers is the best solution (after Sonos itself) for those not interested in messing around w/pulseaudio or VLC multicast. Depending upon the solution you choose, the player/library may or may not be a separate component.
Really, the library and remote control part of this is the easiest and most generic element. You could use iTunes Remote if using iTunes, or VNC (or SSH) w/anything else to name two options off the top of my head; you also could use a web-based script driven system, it's not important. (But if you want a prebuilt web-based network jukebox, try SlimServer. You don't need a Squeezebox to use it.)-reply by noidiot

just a quick queries regarding home networking using sonos for music streaming.
I was wondering if anyone would have any ideas or suggestions for recording music onto a external drive whilst streaming over a home network from the internet using sonos.
I will have a system line network with various components tied into the patch panel.
any suggestions welcome.

Replying to iGuestIt has been a while since I used x10 products for music. Search the X10 site. I believe they have what you are looking for.

- Pulseaudio on Linux
- Airfoil & Airfoil Speakers on PC, MAC, Linux
Set-up a stream in VLC on host pc and set the host PCs stereo-output as the input for the stream. Open said stream using VLC on the client PC.

I think your question can be answered by a simple free software called "share speaker". I have been using this software for quite some time! I have one desktop with 5.1 speaker system on it. Plus I have 3 laptops. I have share speaker software on all of them. With the software, I can play music from anyone of the laptop, on the speaker system on the desktop. It does take up a lot of network memory, so that the music keeps playing. Hope thats what you were looking at!
