Thread: Spotty help?

    Spotty help?

    Please can someone help?
    I find I can no longer play Spotify via my Squeezebox but I gather there is something called Spotty which helps.
    However, I can't find anywhere a clear explanation of how to find and install Spotty.
    There is a thread on this Forum with over 100 pages on the subject but, having ploughed through a lot of it, it really makes little sense to a non-geek!
    Is there a simple instruction somewhere?

    Fire up LMS web UI. Go to Settings/Plugins and install it like any other
    plugin. There's no magic to it.

    Sptty disappeared

    Had some issues with my Mac and also just installed latest software for LMS
    But for some reason Spotty doesn't show up under the list of plugins.
    Any Ideas?
    Thanks

    In the plugin installer? Or in the menus? What LMS version? Anything in
    server.log?
