yes, please. I like to watch live or recorded live concerts on my Windows 10 computer at my desk. I used to use a Linn Majik streamer, and with the Linn Songcast app on my computer, it would capture the audio and cast the audio to the Linn Majik streamer, amps, and speakers across the room. I think Songcast can cast at high bit and sample rates also. Now I use an RPi4 with Snakeoil or other Linux OSs, but I have never found another app or software that does what Songcast can do. One could do the same with youtube or video files, or anything you can play on your computer. So, for example, you could open Spotify or Tidal or Qobuz or Soundcloud apps or websites or anything else on your computer, and Songcast the audio across the room (and mulitroom I believe). I think adding the capability to make the receiving device an OpenHome renderer would work similarly, but I've never been able to successfully add sc2mpd or OpenHome to my RPi4 renderer, so I'm not sure if they are identical or overlap in capabilities. 

So, if Songcast and OpenHome were an option to turn on in Snakeoil, I think it would greatly expand what people could listen to from their computer, but through their stereo.
