How about a Spotify Connect server, allowing us to use the Spotify app on our devices to control our Max2Play servers?29. February 2016 at 15:06 #18841
Thanks for informing us about this server software. Unfortunately, it does not seem to offer any multiroom capabilites, which we are looking for first and foremost.
However, we would be interested to know what functionalities this server offers over the Squeezebox Server’s Spotify implementation with the triode plugin, aside from the official app and connect support.29. February 2016 at 22:54 #18878
Die Spotify connect Funktion wäre schon sehr praktisch. Man bekommt die möglichkeit einfach das Ausgabegerät für Spotify zu wählen.
Man kann einfach auf das Lautsprechersymbol clicken und sich dann einen connect Gerät im Netzwerk aussuchen.
I would also be very happy if you can add a spotify connect function.

The triode plugin is, like most LMS plugins, not perfect; none of the muusic in my library is displayed, search-as-you-type is not implemented, etc. The native app, although it’s not without its own imperfections, is far easier to navigate, has more features and just works with every Spotify-Connect device out-of-the-box.3.

We will look into this within the next weeks and try to add this feature to MAx2Play if it is not to time-consuming.
The selection of the correct output device is possible with the combination of Squeezebox Server, the Shairtunes2 plug-in and miniDLNA plug-in for SBS. Access the SBS from your Apple with Airplay (connects to Shairtunes2) or Android devices with BubbleUPnP for example (connects to miniDLNA).

@Maximilian: hey, have you guys continued to look into adding this feature? Although I’m able to manually configure the Spotify Connect daemon and have it run on startup, this causes audio in Kodi to distort, requiring a reboot.
I’m certain if Spotify Connect were implemented by you guys you’d be able to make sure this is not the case.
This would be brilliant! 🙂6. July 2016 at 15:37 #21268
I hope you guys will manage to get this future working! Also if you need some testing i’ll be happy to assist. Like q20 i am able to install it manually on my ‘old’ RP2 with Hifiberry DAC+ and 7″touchscreen, but switching between my phone and touchscreen for control will give some problems with audio signal not getting released and or obtained and the described distortion in Kodi.12.

Another *good* reason to get this working might be that with this Spotify Connect plugin it won’t be needed to run LMS only to use Spotify.I for once mostly use Spotify and only now and then webradio or my local music. With this plug in I can hear Spotify in the room of my choice!8. August 2016 at 17:57 #22088
Our current topic is to implement the plugin builder into Max2Play-OS. It gives you and other people of the Max2Play-community the opportunity to create your own ideas and wishes. It would be great, if someone of the community build this plugin. But it is a very specific application.4. September 2016 at 11:18 #22861
Would like to contribute to get this Spotify Connect working on Max2play. But i am not a programmer!
I will look into the plugin-builder but changes are i will not be able to get this working due to my absence of programming-skill 😉
In the mean time maybe someone on this forum and/or developers will have a look at this:
Maybe it’s easy to implement if allowed?

Hello modtastic and cyrano4711,
Sorry for the late response.
We are not working on it at the moment. However, the functionality of Spotify Connect can be achieved using DLNA and Airplay. So it is also possible to Playback Spotify, with the Android Smartphone or an Apple device, over the Max2Play device.27. November 2016 at 11:55 #24280
I managed to implement Spotify Connect on my Max2Play Raspberry Pi + HifiBerry following this instruction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqMzXmvW4T8
The only problem is that both try to use the same output device, I get an error when I try to start Squeezelight:
[10:35:50.562781] test_open:294 playback open error: Invalid argument
[10:35:50.563179] output_init_common:381 unable to open output device
Maybe a solution to switch between players sharing the same output device (similar to MultiShairport) is possible?
