    [Announce] Spotty - the next generationSpotify implementation

    Did you ever try the Spotty beta? Could you try to run the spotty binary
    from the command line to see what that gives? Enable plugin.spotty debug
    logging to see what commands it's trying to execute.

    What kind of device is this?

    My setup is a Raspberry Pi B running DietPi (Debian) with Logitech Media Server and SqueeLite (so player and server on 1 device). Sound is outputted on a HiFiBerry DAC. Like to say that Spotty is running very smooth!

    Set Release Radar and Discover Weekly as Favorites?

    Hi.

    In the closed thread "The Spotty Spotify implementation," user usc95 indicated he was able to set Spotify's "Release Radar" and "Discover Weekly" dynamic playlists as Favorites and provided a screenshot showing that s/he had done so. I am a Spotty user and although I can access RR and DW with no problem, it would be nice to also set them as Favorites, which so far I have not been able to do.

    I noted that usc95 is using Ipeng. I am an Orange Squeeze user. Can anyone tell me whether it is the case that while Ipeng can set RR and DW as Favorites, Orange Squeeze cannot? And if Orange Squeeze can do so, will someone give me a hint?

    Many thanks to Michael for Spotty, which I am thoroughly enjoying!!

Then go to Settings/Advanced/Spotty and follow the instructions.

    On platforms other than Windows you should be able to authorize the plugin using your mobile or desktop Spotify application. On Windows unfortunately you'll have to enter username/password (which are NOT stored in LMS).
    Thanks, the first impressions on my RPI/Hifiberry are great!
    I have two questions:
    1 - I presume for the initial authorization you have to run the mobile / desktop Spotify application on the same device where LMS is running? I had to use the username/password solution on my LMS/Linux system because using the client on other devices didn't work.
    2 - After disabling the Official Spotify plugin & Spotify Protocol handler from LMS: is the cache deleted as well? Or do I have to remove it manually? If so: which files/dirs do I have to remove in /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache etc.?

    You don't need to set them as favourites just follow them in your Spotify phone app or desktop version.

    No, the mobile app rarely is running on the same device as LMS ;-).

    Most likely it's a problem with how the spotty helper would advertise
    itself in the network. I think there can be conflicts with other
    discovery services. May I ask what Linux you're running and whether
    you're using some other media server software on it?

    Oh, good point. I think the cache folder is called spotifycache or
    similar, inside the cache folder you mentioned.

    I also have an authorisation issue.

    LMS does not appear in my mobile app and if I try to add username & password via Settings/Advanced/Spotty it freezes the server.

    Hmm... checked the server.log? Could you try the command line? Enable
    debug logging for LMS, try to authenticate. Then you'll find the command
    line in the log file.

    The old Spotify cache can be quite big, mine was 515 Megabyte. I have deleted it.
    My LMS is running on a Xubuntu 16.04LTS server. It is also running Mediatomb and by default a few services advertised via Avahi I think.
    What advertising/discovery technology is used by Spotty?
