    Not able to skip ahead in tracks with Spotty 4.01

    With versions 3.x and now 4.01 of the Spotty app if I try to skip ahead in the track, the track simply starts over. There does not seem to be the capability to move around within tracks or fast forward.

    It seems as though I remember reading somewhere that this was a limitation of streaming the Ogg Vorbis file directly from Spotify but I can't seem to find that information any longer.

    I realize this is probably well understood but can someone please describe the issue and if there is any workaround?

    Which version of LMS? You need at least 7.9.2 I think.

    I disabled the native ogg support and forced it to use FLAC transcoding on the server (on the setttings/advanced/file types page)- that way you can certainly seek within tracks, and ReplayGain works properly as well. I believe I've seen a reply from Michael recently where he was considering removing the native support anyway due to some other issue.

    I updated both Spotty to 4.1.1 and my Logitech server to 8.x and it finally works. First time I've had this and it is so nice to be able to track forward in a song.

    Everything seems stable so far. I never did see any setting related to disabling Ogg Orbis and the web interface still say Ogg Vorbis. But perhaps it is just reporting the original content stream.
