    The Spotty menu.
    Thanks Michael but I don't think we are on same page :P

    I have been using Spotty menu for selecting playback of my existing playlists which nicely displays all folders structure as in Spotify native app/web interface.
    But when I want to add Spotify song from LMS queue to one of my Spotify playlists, I:
    click on song ( I right click in Material) => ("More" in Material)=> Add Track to Playlist
    Then I get screen with only Spotify playlists where I can choose one I would like to add to, but there is no folder structure anymore.


    ps.Also in Material ( in default its all good) when selecting playlist I want to add this track to, I get screen with Playlist name saying " Empty". But adding still actually works fine. When I check in Spotify app, new song is there as expected.

    i am thinking the same... the comunication between the spotify and picore is one way, maybe this will be the reason why spotify lost it's connection , and does not respond rapidly.... or respondes wrong after several play pouse clicks

    i would be gratefull if you fix it and make it work fast like my pc as spotify connect

    keep up the good work

    Well if you add an album to your library in the Spotty app it appears in your Spotify library so communication must be two way.

    It is indeed. My 'one way'assumption was only about playlists but was also wrong as it seems to work.. (maybe apart from creating new one)

    BTW connect delay was a problem like couple years ago.. Now it's amazing and works instantly.. It's actually unbelievable how much Michael has improved it.
    Are you sure you up to date with everything?

    [Announce] Spotty 4.4 - morepersonalised content

    > Thanks Michael but I don't think we are on same page :P

    Oh, right!... the "Add to Playlist" menu is actually a real thing. I at
    first didn't understand :-). I believe this should be feasible. I'll
    look into this.

    Would you see the same/similar behaviour using a mobile app or Jivelite?

    Spotty Connect has disappeared

    Hi

    I am running Spotty 4.4.8 on LMS 8.1.1 on Windows Server 2012R2.

    Spotify through LMS works ok.

    Spotify connect has stopped working for some reason a few weeks ago. No Connect devices are visible in the Spotify apps on the network. I do not have "don't announce on network" ticked. The firewall ports are open for the spotty helper app.

    If I start playing something from Spotify on player through LMS, then this player will appear in the devices in the Spotify app on the desktop, but not on the phone.

    I have a Spotify Client ID entered in the settings, since I was getting rate limited. The disappearance of the Connect players seems to have occured at a similar time, but I cannot say if it was really so.

    I am not sure how to debug this. There is nothing of interest in the logs.

    Why i can't stream Spotify directly to player in ogg format? I see stream is always decoded to Flac and goes through LMS server. It's very bad for wireless network. I don't understand why did you do that? I remember it was possible to stream spotify directly, without proxy. And now there is even no such option!

    Funny thing is that Spotify Connect works through LMS too!) I would be appreciated if mherger will answer why Spotty can't stream directly now? What is the reason? Even in Connect mode stream goes to PC, being converted to Flac, and then goes backwards to Player! With increased bitrate. My Router is 54 Mbit/s and half-duplex. So it may be not stable. Need direct stream ability!

    > appreciate if *mherger* answer why Spotty can't stream directly now?

    You mean Ogg direct? Thanks to Philippe_44's persistence this might
    actually change again. But the reason was that librespot (the project
    I'm using to integrate with Spotify) didn't want to merge the necessary
    change upstreams. And maintaining it myself was no option longer term.

    It will always go through LMS. Going to the players directly is not an
    option. But you can always tell LMS to re-encode Spotty streams to mp3
    320kbps. The quality loss compared to Ogg direct should be neglectable.

    There's an option in the mobile clients to "only show local speakers" or
    similar. Make sure this isn't enabled.
