    [Announce] Spotty v1.9.0 - now withexperimental Spotify Connect support!

    I think I figured out why those settings were disabled on some systems
    yesterday. While cooking some lasagne. Sometimes the good ideas come far
    away from the keyboard :-).

    The underlying problem is that Spotty would use helper applications of
    various names, depending on the platform/OS: spotty, spotty-custom,
    spotty-muslhf etc. But the LMS settings pages would always check for
    "spotty". If you were to use a system where Spotty used a binary other
    than the literal "spotty", those settings would not be available.

    I'll see what I can do.

    I suggest you go to Settings/Information, check paths for prefs and cache. Then shut down LMS. Remove spotty.prefs, and everything below cache/spotty. Then restart LMS. This should get rid of everything Spotty related and let you start over.

    Hmm... ok, I must admit that this check does indeed not work as expected: this morning all my Connect endpoints have disappeared, too. No trace in server.log, and the processes are still running. I'll have to review this.

    Ok, so I installed LMS on a raspberry pi. Indeed there is no auto discovery issue there. Connectpoint appears, but I still am unable to connect... not without credentials set nor with the credentials set.
    Read above that soemone enbales the connect points on the players. Just to make sure I understand the concept correct: I install spotty on the server, and have squeezelite players. I expect that i need to connect to the server spotty, and it streams output to squeezelite player. Correct?
    Or is it I install spotty on the server and need to enable connect on (both) players and connect to one of those?

    tia,

    tia,
    Might as well try it. Notice that bitrate is set at 96, which is of course not what anyone would want...

    You need to enable Connect for every player in LMS.

    Ok, thanks. On my new server install I now have it working. That requirement on the players was not clear to me.
    Now trying to get it to work without the auto-discovery on my "original" setup.

    Is it indeed that the bitrate is 96 or can it be ignored because it using the 320 setting on the server instead?

    Don't worry about the Connect daemon's bitrate: that audio data is dumped to /dev/null... The actual audio data is received by another spotty instance. (And yes, this means that in Connect mode you're actually downloading audio data _twice_.)

    Ah great, ofcourse that is the /dev/null. Thx for your replies and hard work!

    I m having 2 little problems these last days:

    1 - Old problem, sometimes audio go down using SPOTIFY CONNECT!if i play a playlist using directly spotty from LMS i dnt have problem
    2 - Always using SPOTIFY CONNECT sometimes the song goes in pause, i push play and it come back on pause...i fight a little bit until the song continue.

    I dont know if somebody has the same problems and if there is a solution


    UPDATE: No ok, I m having the same problem even using Spotty from LMS!The Problem could be a problem of internet connection? I dnt have problems with internet eh, but it s strange! From when i updated lms i didnt have problems with spotty!
