RE: Spotify for Kodi - Spiderfish - 2019-02-03


I have LE and I installed the spotify addon but always shows me a message for credentials and login error, I have free account, Shall I need to have a premium account to be able to work?

RE: Spotify for Kodi - k0di2017 - 2019-02-03

yes you need a premium spotify account

RE: Spotify for Kodi - SUPERATRAT08 - 2019-02-05

Hi all!!! Like another user a few months ago, addon tries to connect with default browser, but im using AppleTV 4k, and no browser opens... Can you help me pleaseHuh Thanks!!!

RE: Spotify for Kodi - wacind - 2019-02-06


the front page says that this may not work for Kodi 18 64 bit. Has there been any update on that or is it still not working. Also when i try to install the repo on a fresh install of kodi 18 on windows, it crashes kodi. Debug Logs dont provide any useful information.


Edit: got it working by also installing the 32 bit version and running it. Using the 32 bit version, i installed the repo and the addon. Now it shows up on the 64 bit kodi as well.

RE: Spotify for Kodi - Spiderfish - 2019-02-07

I tired with premium account but still couldn't open the addon in kodi

Ask e for credentials issue! and in logs said there is no credentials.json exist!

Any Idea about this issue?

RE: Spotify for Kodi - Ed76 - 2019-02-17

i heard spotify connect is now also available for spotify free users. would this make it possible to use this addon also as a free user?

RPi 3b+, LibreElec 9.0.1, latest Spotify addon version.
Works perfect but i have an issue - if i start play some song i can not switch to any other. Only Next/Previous button is working. Nothing happens if i choose any track in list.

 I deleted credentials.json in .kodi/userdata/addon_data/plugin.audio.spotify and rebooted the system.

RE: Spotify for Kodi - effe.rnr - 2019-03-13


I can't authorize the plugin on my shield with latest Kodi 18 stable. The browser (Puffin) opens but says "This page isn't working" Host: accounts.spotify.com ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

Am I doing something wrong?

Can you elaborate on the python bug in Kodi 18 64 bit?  Any chance it's fixed in nightly builds or will ever be fixed?  Any work around?

Good Morning,

I had the same Problem with the 64bit Kodi. The Addon is running, but the Player was not starting. Then I deleted the addon, Change Kodi to 32bit, install the Addon and the Player works and I can listen to my Music. After that I changed back to 64bit and the Addon still working fine. Maybe this helps also for you. 

All the Best


RE: Spotify for Kodi - yoshitslc - 2019-04-09

Hello !

I have a problem with the addon since two weeks. Everytime I start Kodi, I have a notification of error with the add on without even open it. I tried to uninstall it, make a clean install, change login...

Here is what the logs tell me
asubipawup.kodi (paste)

Does someone know how I can fix that ?

RE: Spotify for Kodi - bushida87 - 2019-04-10

Doesnt work with Leia 18.1 and Titan Bingie Skin :-(
There is a Login Bug?
With Arctic Zephyr 2 and a fresh install it works

RE: Spotify for Kodi - yoshitslc - 2019-04-29

Is this addon still supported ?

RE: Spotify for Kodi - robgolbh - 2019-05-06

"Please connect to this device with the spotify app on your phone to login or enter your credentialsnin settings dialog."
