Hi,

Try changing ftp into http and use a valid user like admin:password@ or use credentials from a created user. FTP will nor work for Sonos.

Test first from browser if http://admin:password@192.168.1.50/user/...lename.mp3 does work then use this url in the command you already have.

You must escape the audio file parameter:
Code:
require('socket.url')
require('socket.http')

file = socket.url.escape('http://admin:sonos123@192.168.1.50/user/Meditation-bell-sound.mp3')
socket.http.TIMEOUT = 5
reply = socket.http.request('http://admin:sonos123@127.0.0.1/apps/data/sonos/sonos.lp?action=say&ip=192.168.1.6&audiofile=' .. file .. '&volume=50&duration=10')

Hi
I have some more info about new sonos API.
Sonos started some time ago new partner program and they created new API which is shared only with its partners. Sonos is even generating special key for each device which want to integrate with those players.  Sonos will be testing and validating each 3rd party integration. Apparently this was started some times ago 2016 or something like that. Only partners were notified about this. New API will sill use upnp for discovery with some extended code. For the communication websocket will be used instead SOAP like now.  This means complete rewrite of app.  
It is not clear for me till when the old open API will be supported. At this moment each player support both.  I heard from one source(not sure if valid) that open API will be blocked in 2-3 months from now.
SE is the owner of the sonos app and they started to work on implementation of the new API but it will take some time plus the verification.

Balatis,
When running the script and loading the mp3 file, do you experience any lagg? I am doing the same as you, but from the time I enter the http command, and until it actually plays the file it takes more then 20-25 seconds.
What is your experience?

The lagg is driving me CRAZY!! Someone PLEASE HELP! Smile

Hi,

Currently the Sonos app is being re-written due to the new Sonos API. Let's wait if the problem is gone in that version..

Hi Erwin,

Do you know what timeframe we are talking about?
I am using this function as a doorbell, but due to the lag it is not working all that good (people tend to believe we are not home, and leave before the doorbell rings and we get to open the door... hahaha).

Hi,

How is it possible to change audio source to line-in (SONOS:AMP) with one command
and then play some radio from Tune-in with another command?
Reply
Hi,

Selecting line-in is not included in the Sonos app API, it should be possible with upnpcmd function.

BR,

Erwin
