    [Announce] Spotty 4.0 - integrate local library with your Spotify collection (LMS 8+)

    I'm happy to announce Spotty v4.0.0. This release adds support for the new online library integration of Logitech Media Server 8.0 (pre-release only!). This integration will list your favourite albums and artists from Spotify (and other supported streaming services) together with your local library. Quick search, random albums etc. will all give you access to your Spotify favourites, too.

    Please note that LMS 8 still is under development. If you feel adventurous, then go install it from the usual source of nightly builds. But please be prepared to update often - and to see the random issue here and there.

    Hi Michael

    Is there anything I need to do to make this work, a setting somewhere maybe? I've updated LMS to latest nightly (8.0.0 - 1585823230) and Spotty to 4.0.0 but I don't see any of my saved Spotify albums mixed in with my local albums. I'm running everything on PiCorePlayer 6.0.0-rc1.

    I've tried doing a 'Clear library and rescan' in case that made a difference.

    I tried adding a couple of Spotify albums to favourites by selecting the heart icon in the LMS web interface but that didn't help.

    Cheers

    Seems to be a big secret?

    Heh... I should probably enable by default the big new feature of LMS8 :-)

    Display of track info often lags behind by one track

    I have been noticing this on my RaspberryPi running jivelite/squeezelite. Half the time, it is showing the album track previous to what is currently playing. I am not sure who is the culprit here, RPI or Spotty or what?
    Any ideas on what to look for?

    When do you notice this happening? Are you just playing from Spotify or a mixture of local tracks and Spotify tracks?

    It only happens with Spotify playists, never local music. I'd guess it happens nearly always; once in a while, it tracks perfectly.

    UPDATE: I just turned on Debug on Spotty and noticed the last track logged is NOT the current track.

    I see bunch of same logs such as below:

    OK my theory is out the window then. I have seen it when my HDD goes to sleep during a Spotify track and if the next track is local then the artwork and track info does not change.
