RE: Spotify for Kodi - guzmana223 - 2017-02-16

First of all I wanted to say thank you for the add-on. I am new to Kodi but so far it has been the best add-on I have used. I have a question regarding artwork. The thumbnail for artist and album art is showing up correctly (I believe thats coming from spotify). I am having problems with, what I think is called fanart. The background changes to an image of the artist when an artist is selected, but only when the artist exists in my local music. Otherwise it just shows the default background. Is their an add-on that works with the spotify add-on that will pull in this additional artwork?

Thanks

RE: Spotify for Kodi - blashman - 2017-02-18

Hello all, I just knew about this addon.
Could somebody tell me if it's working with kodi krypton?


RE: Spotify for Kodi - J├Ânke - 2017-02-18

Yes


RE: Spotify for Kodi - gazzauk71 - 2017-02-20

Just a few notes on Libreelex V17 on S905X and this addon. If some logs are needed, then please let me know?

The addon intermittently crashes Kodi on Libreelec 7.95 beta 5. 11th Jan release. Kodi 17 RC1 restarts.

The addon doesn't take focus of the window, so the album art doesn't change per track in any Spotify play list, unless you refresh the view, or arrow down to the playing track.

I guess after all the addon is beta, although its been static for some time now.


RE: Spotify for Kodi - blashman - 2017-02-20

I just upgraded kodi to krypton and the addon is causing the crash of kodi when I launch it.
I'm running kodi on an iMac and last version of MacOS.
Had someone else the same problem?

Login Error : unable to connect to server

Hi!
This login error seams to be related to the Spotify premium user account itself. When I logon with my Spotify premium user account I get the same error message (Unable to connect to server). But when I logon with my friends premium user account it works.

Is there any difference between Spotify premium user accounts what server you are granted to access?


RE: Spotify for Kodi - gurabli - 2017-02-25

I tried to make it work on latest Kodi Krypton, on Windows 10, before trying on Linux, but none of the songs start. Anybody who has this working?

RE: Spotify for Kodi - sagrath - 2017-02-27

Hi Marcelveldt

I was playing come musics on Spotify addon. Everything works well done. But there some details, that I note:

1. The spotify has some Remasters, Reworked musics, so, this way, whem the song is show on kodi, show like this: Maneater - Remaster
So, this way, the addon CU LRC lyrics don't find the lyrics, because the addon thinks this is a different song than Maneater.

This happen to others variants: Reworked, remaster,

How about to include on Spotify addon, an section to us include some terms like: (remaster) (reworked version) etc etc. to exclude this terms when playing the song. In the lists it's ok, just in music fullscreem.

In time, folow some images to show what happen

watch gallery

As far as i can recall i did not change anything but it started working all of a sudden after a few reboots.


RE: Spotify for Kodi - Draxshar - 2017-02-27

I'm having a problem with Spotify. I can play songs just fine but after one song, it will exit out and go back to the playlist and stop playing. Basically, I am able to play one track then nothing. Tried a fresh install of the addon and wiped all the data that goes along with it to no avail. Any thoughts on why this might be happening? Using Titan beta 3.745, (not sure if this is skin related or not), Krypton.


RE: Spotify for Kodi - DarkHelmet - 2017-03-01

Just in case anyone has the same issue. After updating to Krypton I had to deinstall the addon and reinstall to get the addon to work. I'm on windows 10.

Maybe someone else can confirm this for MacOS. At least for me, it didn't work.
Thanks anyway.
