Questions and Answers

Is this an official Overcast service?


Do I have to run this thing on my computer?

Unlike AirSonos, you don't need to run any additional programs on your computer or network. A public instance of the service is already set up on Heroku.

Why can't I see my playlists?

This service is limited to the same functionality as the website, which only supports the "All Active Episodes" playlist.

What does "registering a custom service" do?

Sonos allows a unreviewed custom service to be registered for testing and development purposes. It's similar to "sideloading" an iOS app via Xcode. Typically, all services are reviewed and registered with Sonos.

Keep in mind that only one custom service can be registered per network. Because of this limitation, you can't use this Overcast service and another like the NPR One service at the same time.

Why isn't there a nice Overcast logo in the Sonos app?

Only officially registered services can set a custom service logo.

Why PHP?

I thought it would be fun and maybe @marcoarment would take the source and make it official.

Can I run my own service?

Yeah! If you want to make modifications or want to control your own instance for privacy reasons, you can simply use this "Deploy to Heroku" button to quickly set up your own app in minutes.
