    [Announce] Spotify Protocol Handler - play Spotify on all your Squeezeboxen

    Ok, here it is: based on Triode's great work I'm providing my latest
    plugin, the Spotify Protocol Handler.

    What does it do?

    The Spotify Protocol Handler plugin allows you to stream Spotify content
    not only to the officially supported SB Radio and SB Touch, but to SB
    Classic, SB Boom, SB Receiver and the Transporter, too. And yes,
    whatever SB emulator you're using should work as well. As an additional
    bonus the Spotify Protocol Handler plugin will give you full access to
    Logitech's Spotify app from players which are not officially supported.

    How is it different from Triode's Spotify plugin?

    The Spotify Protocol Handler doesn't provide any browsing or content
    management. You'll need to install Logitech's Spotify app to have access
    to Spotify, too. Triode's plugin starts to suffer from Spotify's
    changing of API. And as it's no longer maintained, and Logitech's new
    implementation is so great, the Spotify Protocol Handler is combining
    the best of both worlds.

    Should I uninstall Triode's Spotify plugin before installing the Spotify
    Protocol Handler?

    If you're happy with Spotify's plugin, then there's no need to change
    anything. If you'd prefer to use Logitech's Spotify implementation while
    using any of the non-supported players, then you'll need the Spotify
    Protocol Handler plugin. If you have both in place, the Spotify Protocol
    Handler will not initialize, as it doesn't add anything to Triode's
    implementation.

    Does it work with the SmartMix plugin?

    Of course!

    Just for fun I tried it on my Windows 10 LMS 7.9 server, but it didn't play Spotify songs. The original Triode plugin, in combination with the official Logitech plugin, does work. (I removed the Triode plugin before installing the SpotifyProtocolHandler)

    Best regards,
    Dennis.

    You did enter your Spotify credentials, didn't you? In the new plugin, not Triode's?

    Hi Michael,

    Yes, I did, twice. (only the password, my username was already shown in the new plugin.) Any log file I should check? serverlog.txt
    If I remove the SpotifyProtocolHandler and reinstall the 3rd party Spotify plugin it works as expected.

    Best regards,
    Dennis.

    p.s. Exactly the support troubles you didn't want, sorry...

    What does the selftest etc. say? Yeah, exactly what I didn't want... Simply because I have no idea about those issues. In my case entering credentials always fixed my issues.

    What OS, LMS version etc?

    The two plugins use a distinct set of preferences. And if you were using a firewall you might have to enable access for the new helper. And a look in the server.log should be routine.

    Unable to configure Spotify Protocol handler plugin

    Hi,
    I tried to configure this plugin, but i get this error
    404 Not Found: plugins/Extensions/settings/plugins/SpotifyProtocolHandler/settings/basic.html
    When I click on Parameters in the Plugins section of Logitech Media Server

    I install the plugin from the plugin list in LMS web interface and i did restart the server.
    I'm using LMS logitechmediaserver_7.9.0~1455360998_amd64.deb on a Linux machine.

    Any idea ?

    Thanks Michael!

    I forgot that I had to add the spotifyd.exe to the firewall exceptions in Windows (which I had done previously for the 3rd party Spotify plugin). Since the file location of the helper app changed, I had to re-add spotifyd.exe for SpotifyProtocolHandler plugin.

    Best regards,
    Dennis.

    Could you please check the server.log file for any error message?
