I don't think this is working for windows.
Really, really like this feature in xbmc, and I think there are a lot more :-)

Just a straight question.
Are there people somewhere working on this ?

I am also wondering about this, sincerely.

Having to compile a custom build of XBMC to get Spotify support in is a start (and a really nice implementation is done!) but on the long run, I think more people would be served if this became available as a plugin.

If a plugin would become available (or native support in new versions of XBMC), I would really get a premium account!

Let's hope that, with support for 'closed source' plugins in XBMC 11.x, Spotify will jump in to this hole themselves Smile

I've finaly got this to work, and it works like a charm. But since I've installed this SVTplay and other video streaming apps does not work. I'm able to retrive all the shows, but it just wont start anny clip. XBMC does not crash or lags, you are still able to navigate. But the clips just wont start.

I've been trying to fix this by reinstall the apps that dont work. And even recompiled and install XBMC. I'm using the 0.0.3 version of libspotify. And ubuntu.

binära addons = Swedish
It means binary addons.

I've actually manged to get it working with the latest Spotify 0.0.7 library, playback of search results and toplists works fine. Need some work to get playlist working as the API has changed since 0.0.3 (it is now using callbacks).

May I contact you in PM to ask for help? På svenska då? =)

I have tried to fix Spotify for my XBMC but never really understood how to get it to work.

Libspotify 0.0.8 is out, anyone is willing to try ? (Offline playlists support)

http://developer.spotify.com/blog/archives/2011/05/24/libspotify-008-now-with-offline-support/

I don't want to mess my Ubuntu/XBMC installation so if no one can try i will test this week end on a usb key Smile


- eversteegt - 2011-05-25 08:45

I would be willing to try, but I would still prefer having it as a plugin in stead of hard-coded in to XBMC. I also would not see the difference between hardcoded and as a plugin, at least not in terms of Spotify's concerns.


- tsint - 2011-05-25 21:25

I also would like to have the Spotify integration in a pluggable component. My main concern is that a python plug-in will be 'slow', I've just tried a few plug-ins and all of them feels 'slow' and not as instant as native binary code (I suppose python is interpreted at run-time). Perhaps I just tried bad plug-ins...


- coendeurloo - 2011-06-19 15:17

Seeing as Spotify will be launched in the US in July, is there still no interest in creating a plugin? It would be so awesome...

Hi,

Still waiting for the binary addon support in XBMC.

But while we wait I can inform you that I have together with Claude Lacoursiere fixed some issues, moved up to libSpotify 0.0.8 and catched up with the XBMC master.

The installation is also now very much simplified, all you have to to is clone my XBMC fork, download a spotify api key and build it.
