Hi all,

I've been using DSBridge for some years now to send a Spotify stream to my LMS server, and from there to my audio system in the living room.
However, I started using Linux Mint today and now I'm wondering if a similar procedure is possible on Linux.

Is there something like DSBridge I could try?
I'm not looking for solutions like Wine of VirtualBox.

Thanks in advance.

Any reason for not using either of the LMS spotify plugins?

WAV input plugin if the LMS server runs on the same machine . And spotifys Linux desktop app or web player .

Figuring how to pipe the former to the later is to be figured out I dont know how but bet its possible ( as we are talking linux ) .


Why ? There are apps some features may be missing or be different ?

I use the Triode plugin in LMS 7.9.0 an it works like a charm. However, the LMS interface is outdated and I prefer Spotify's desktop, which I already used in Windows 10 and now would like to use in Linux.

OK, fair enough, if that is what you prefer.
