    What platform/OS are you running your LMS on?
    I'm using Windows 10-1703. Mostly synchronised with 3 players together, 1 Squeezebox Touch, 2x Squeezebox Receiver. I think synchronisation is better with Spotty.

    Best regards,
    Dennis.

    I thought I should have been able to deduce the current behaviour from that introduction :-)

    Cool! Good to know authorization worked for you. You did have to enter
    username/password I assume?

    Yes, all I had to do was to enter my Spotify username and password. It worked immediately.
    Just out of curiosity, what's different on Windows that we need another way of authorizing than other platforms? (Don't bother to answer if you think the answer we'll be too long or too technical, or just don't feel the need to answer.)

    Best regards,

    librespot currently doesn't work on Windows at all, lack of some
    dependencies. Only by disabling all audio backends (which we don't need
    anyway) and the discovery mode I was able to get it working on this
    platform. But without discovery mode you can't authorize it using a
    Spotify application.

    For max2play users it seems that a spotify connect plugin is currently in beta. I've not tried it yet.

    Spotify - multiple accounts

    Back at Post 60 or thereabouts people were talking about having individual Spotify accounts per player and playing multiple streams at the same time.

    Whether or not Spotty replaces SPH I would like to offer a practical solution to the issue that I know works. Simply install multiple instances of LMS on your network and point them at the same physical library but configure each to use a different Spotify account and different MySB.com accounts where the corresponding Spotify account is also registered.

    In my case the local library is on a NAS, each LMS instance is a piCoreplayer which is also the player for its designated user (setup to only connect to 127.0.0.1). Each user has access to the full library via SMB mounts and their own Spotify. You can also use the "Remote Library" feature if you don't want to mount the NAS to each Pi but then you don't get the luxury of Michael's Dont Stop The Music / LastMix.

    In addition I run a Vortexbox on a server class old PC as the "main" server for my stuff. Its a Vortexbox as I like the convenience of the CD ripper but it reads/writes direct to the same NAS via NFS.
    Vortexbox LMS 7.9 music on QNAP TS419p via NFS iThingys/iPeng/Tablets
    Living Room - SB3 -> Onkyo TS606 - > Celestion Ditton F20s - Zone 2 -> Sony TA FE 320 -> Sennheiser RS 130 & B&W P7
    Office - RPi -> Sony TA FE320 -> Celestion F10s / SB3 -> Onkyo CRN 755 -> Wharfedale Modus Cubes
    Dining Room -> SB Boom Kitchen -> UE Radio (upgraded to SB Radio)
    Bedroom (Bedside) - SB Touch -> Topping TP21 -> AKG Headphones Bedroom (TV) - Amazon Fire TV (SB Player) -> Topping TP20 -> Wharfedale Modus Cubes

    Ugh... something's totally broken in the playlist integration. Some mails don't arrive, and many end up in the wrong place :-(.

    That's great to hear. On a Windows 10 machine it's already working really well, from what I can see. Search works. Cross-fade seems to work. As well as playlists, favorites, cover art (didn't you say we'd might have to do without it?) the hardware remote. I haven't found a thing that doesn't work
