    Broke out Fedora Squeezelite v1.9.0-1126 from sync group with 3x PcP players, Getting consistent skips on track spotify://track:3pZy4lxb51CLO3zZdZy5fH after a few seconds on Fedora. No problem on PcP Squeezelite with this track.

    Will try to find/build a more recent version of Squeezelite for Fedora and report back.

    Hi Mickael,
    I'm really happy, i've just switched from Apple Music to Spotify to use my Squeezebox, and it works like a charm.
    I still have an issue though (but I can't say if it's important fidelity wise), I can't play Soptify music in direct OGG. It's converting to PCM.
    I've tried to deactivate conversion in the file format settings :
    Code:
    Spotty	FLAC		Disabled (changeable)	
    	MP3		Disabled (changeable)
    	Ogg Vorbis	Disabled (greyed out)
    	PCM		Disabled (changeable)
    But No sound anymore and following error in the logs :
    Code:
    [19-05-25 16:23:37.9726] Slim::Player::Song::open (410) Error: Couldn't create command line for spt playback for [spotify://connect-1558794175129]
    I guess "Ogg Vorbis" shouldn't be disabled in the settings. Am I missing a specific Perl module?

    I'm on FreeNAS-11.2-U4.1, LMS 7.9.2, the SB is a Receiver. I haven't tried with others yet (Radios and Booms).

    [Announce] Spotty 2.8.x - SpotifyConnect for your Squeezebox

    From a sound quality point of view they are identical. It's just that
    in Ogg streaming the decoding would only happen on the player, whereas
    in PCM mode the decoding happens in the spotty helper. Therefore the
    bandwidth used is higher with PCM.

    What version of the spotty helper application are you using? I thought
    there should be a 0.20 available with Ogg streaming (check
    Settings/Advanced/Spotty).

    No, you're probably missing the latest helper. How did you install it?
    FreeNAS is FreeBSD based, for which I do not provider the helper.

    Thanks for this quick answer!

    I use SpottyBinFreeBSD/Bin/spotty-custom (v0.13.0).
    I've installed it via Settings/Plugins, in the third party section (Spotty Helper Application for FreeBSD 11 by Richard Herman)

    Is there a more recent helper for FreeBSD? If not, can I build one from sources?

    I've spot something else : when in Spotify (iPhone client) I switch from a SB to another target, the SB I was on disappear for a few secs from the available devices list.
    In the logs :
    Code:
    [19-05-25 17:18:17.3228] Plugins::Spotty::Connect::DaemonManager::checkAPIConnectPlayers (209) Connect daemon is running, but not connected - shutting down to force restart: 00:04:20:1e:6f:d0
    The mac address is from the SB i was on.

    Oh, I thought he had updated the plugin. But no, it's still at 0.13.
    That would explain why you don't have Ogg support (yet).

    Grab a copy of https://github.com/michaelherger/spotty, install Rust,
    build with "cargo build --release". Rename the resulting "spotty" to "spotty-custom"
    and put it somewhere in your search path. And disable Richard's plugin, as
    otherwise the two would compete over which helper to use.

    You don't happen to be using Spotify on an Android phone? It's something
    I still don't have an idea how to fix/work around. And I think all users
    reporting this are using Spotify on Android. Why that would make a
    difference I have no idea (and this has been seen by librespot users,
    too - librespot is the library behind spotty).

    Hi Michael,

    I'll try to build the helper, thanks.


    No I'm using Apple devices. I've spot the issue on an iPhone XR (latest iOS version). I haven't tested yet on other devices.

    Hi,
    Me again

    I've got a Spotify "family" account, we are 2 on the account.

    I've added the second account in spotty settings, but on her iPhone the squeezebox are not showned..

    Here are the logs in debug when I add the account (I've substituted the real username by my username) : https://pastebin.com/9Ps5s22n


    Edit : Arg, I've just found out the second account works, but it needs to be activated in the squeezebox it wants to drive.. The WAF has just dropped from 99% to 50% (need to install her iPeng and explain how she can switch accounts when she wants to play something on a SB she doesn't see in available devices list)

    Is there a way to activate several accounts at the same time? The 2 accounts see the other stuff (Shield, PS4) without problem... so must be possible right?

    Edit 2 : It seems it's ok on Librespot addons in LibreElec : https://community.spotify.com/t5/Acc.../true#M1067455

    This worked like a charm, thanks for clean instructions
