    Good day,

    I am having problems with Spotify and tidal (both premium – Spotify family package).

    Both streams are showing pictures & titles but when I press play I do hear no music. The timer is running for about 15 seconds (no music heard) and is jumping back to zero.

    Any hints?

    The rest is working fine (radio stations and music via hd connected to the Rpi 3.

    Thank you!

    For Spotify, which plugin are you using? Please try the plugin „spotty“ by MHerger if you have not yet. It is the most up to date and has been tested successfully by many users already.

    For Tidal, what output do you get in the settings after entering your premium credentials?

    Thank you for the fast feedback!

    I am using Spotify Family 1 (V3.0.0). I do see covers, the song starts without sound for about 15 seconds and jumps back to start.

    Where do I find the „spotty“ plugin? It’s not part of the selection of the server.

    Tidal acts basically the same. Covers OK, Playlists OK, songs start visually without sound and jump back to start after about 15 seconds.

    Best regards

    Hi Hans,

    Here is the discussion on Spotty:

    This is the repository you need to add in the plugins settings:

    You can keep your official Spotify plugin, add the new Spotty from MHerger, authenticate from your app, and all should work fine.

    Important, please make sure:

    – That you have a
    – That your Players’ MAC addresses are active in that Account (“Players” in
    – That your Spotify Plugin is active and your premium login is entered in (My Apps -> Spotify in

    Regarding TIDAL:
