    Spotty

    There seem to have been some changes in Spotty. It now requests a client ID
    and a Web token.

    According to the instructions I must create an app. Then I get a client ID
    and a secret. Must I assume the 'secret' is the 'Web token'?
    If so, could the settings page be adjusted?

    Best, I think, with LMS v 8.0.0

    and after install also go to Settings > Advanced > Online Music Library Integration

    Hope all is well, stay safe

    I didn't think they were compulsory. The web token adds some functionality but isn't necessary.

    None of the two is required. But both can solve some issues.

    - the client ID can solve the issue where you'd get blocked ("rate
    limite reached", status 429) by Spotify due to too many requests using
    the shared client ID. I only made the message clearer in the latest
    revision, as this problem has become a major painpoint recently

    - the web token was required in the previous version if you wanted to
    get access to additional content (the "Home" item). With 4.4.3 this
    should no longer be required, but would be used to fall back to if the
    default method failed. I'm probably going to remove the web token
    handler again.

    No, the secret you most likely will never need. You might need it if you
    implemented your own application with some special sign-in flow.

    But really, forget about the web token for now.

    Ok, I see. I have a couple of cient IDs already but I was confused by the
    web token thing.

    Thanks for the great job!
