Thanks for pointing this issue out in detail.
We have already taken steps to ensure that all Max2Play users will continue to be able to use Spotify fully and in the way they are used to.
The new LMS Spotify plugin „Spotty“ by mherger of the slimdevices forums has been successfully tested and circumvents the issues caused by Spotify pulling their support. You can install the plugin easily in the LMS web interface under Settings -> Plugins -> at the bottom of the page you can add new repositories. Add this one which includes mherger’s Spotty: http://www.herger.net/slim-plugins/test.xml
For detailed info on the plugin and what to mind when installing it, head to his introduction thread: http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?107418-The-Spotty-Spotify-implementation
The other solution is one we developed ourselves based on the Spotify Connect system. Here is the plugin page on our website where you can find more infos and the install link for the Max2Play Plugin: https://www.max2play.com/en/portfolio/plugin-spotify-connect-2/
(I hope it’s okay that I edited your topic to reassure our users, if not let me know and I’ll remove it)
