    Music Service Integration

    As I'm using them more and more myself I find the separation of "My Music" and my library managed in a music service confusing (or at least cumbersome). Sometimes I'd like to play some random albums - but from the online library, too. Or a search for my favourite artist should bring up not only local tracks, but whatever album I've got favourited online, too.

    Therefore I'm currently toying with some ideas around better music service integration. One approach I'm exploring right now is how to include online tracks with the main library of my local music, giving me access to albums and tracks from music servicds as if I had them on my disk. I have something working for Spotify (because that's the service I'm using the most often...). But I'd obviously have to implement this for any supported music services...

    Would you be interested in such a feature? If so, which music service would you want me to tackle first?

    I LOVE Qobuz, mainly due to the higher sample and bit-rates, but use your plugin for it. I've never really setup "My Music First"... would it be easier that way, or just another option?

    Music Service Integration

    Michael, this is something Iĺve been missing ever since signing up for one of them. TIDAL in my case. Existing plugin is working well, but integration in random play or search would be dazzling!

    Integration would be the way Roon works with tidal and Quobuz.

    Probably because that is already working according to the first post.

    Encouraging to see this level of enhancement to LMS being considered. Thanks, Michael.

    it integrates your selected items from tidal and quobuz so that your music library shows local music and services music in one seamless manner. That is, exactly what Michael is suggesting above. I suspect this would be a very good thing for LMS.

    I don't really know Roon... but I certainly hope they're more advanced
    than what I plan to/can do :-D
