Hi I have installed your plugin. But if I want to listen to a song, I only hear a "pop". The song continues to play, but without sound. Can you help me solve this? Thanks a lot!

So i loaded the Default Cherrypy Kodi Module from marcelveldt github and used it. Something must have gone wrong when trying to use on of the latest Skin Helper Service Apps from the Bingie repo.

RE: Spotify for Kodi - Laurentwb - 2019-08-25


I'm trying to use Spotify Connect on Windows 10.
My goal is to use the Spotify interface on a Android tablet and have the music played on a small windows 10 media player.

So far, no success. The Android tablet doesn't see the windows 10 computer.
I confirm that Spotify is running on both devices logged on the same Spotify Family account (my understanding is that this is considered as a premium account).
It is related to Kodi and/or the Spotify extension running in Kodi.

Would anyone be able to help with this issue ?
Thank you in advance.

Edit : It is apparently something wrong when installing on Kodi Leia 64bit.
I had Kodi Leia 64bit originally installed and decided to install Kodi Leia 32bit on top of it. The Spotify addon work immediately without any additional change. I than reinstalled Kodi Leia 64bit. The spotify addon continued to work.
All this was suggested by an earlier thread and because Marcel stated originally that the spotify addon does not work with Kodi 64bit because of a python bug.

All this leaves me with the question of what is the benefit of installing Kodi 64bit. Does anyone know ?

should this work on android devices/nvidia shield too?

When I try to start your mod, I am prompted to login and a browser opens but I can't input any credentials

I should work, because my mod did not modify nothing about it, I just changed the server selection process. bu if yo share your log file... I could find the issue and possibly a workaround  or solution. 

I will help others as well. 
Coould you please update it to newer version of cherrypy? Because otherwise as per #1,624 you'll have to manually downgrade possibly breaking other stuff

RE: Spotify for Kodi - oytschi - 2019-10-10

Is there a way to navigate directly to my playlist from a homescreen button. I tried to link the button actions as followed but there is no reaction.


When linking the menu button with

Thanks in advance for any ideas or hints Smile

RE: Spotify for Kodi - cube79 - 2019-10-24


I’m testing the Spotify addon on the latest kodi (based on CoreElec) and control it with Yatse. Everything is working fine, only if I try to play the full album, the track order is wrong, despite the sorting in Yatse itself. I've asked about this problem at the Yatse community, and Tolriq has responded with the following information:
Quote:Ok so Yatse does not handle the order and directly told Kodi to play the folder.

Is it possible to fix it?

On android only spotify connect works. No sound. I buyed philips android tv 2019 and installed kodi. I wish addon works as other systems. Normally i hate android. I used libreelec coreelec boxes but android tv's not weak anymore. I use kodi like as operation system. I want to all things inside in kodi..

it's working for me on windows 10 x64. i'm always using the latest nightly of leia. still works.
i do have some problems. "spotty.exe" tends not to close after i close kodi and that can cause problems when opening kodi again. check your task manager and kill all "spotty.exe" processes before you open kodi again.
i've programmed a button on my remote to force close all instances of spotty.exe when i close my kodi.

p.s. spotify connect never worked for me properly, songs would cut before the ending because when i play something on my phone, the song starts on kodi a little later than on my phone so when it ends on the phone and the next songs starts, kodi would cut the previously playing song and start playing the next one with delay so the next one cuts again before the ending and so on. but playing directly from kodi - everything works fine for me.

if you just want to stream audio from your android phones, you could just use airaudio if you're rooted. when using airplay (and you can set that up in kodi settings), you'll get all the info on kodi (artist, track) from any app including spotify.
