Running 1.1.37 on a LibreElec X86 8.02 on same network, and it works perfectly!

Hmm, strange... seems to be happening on pi only as I can't reproduce it on Linux x86, MacOs and Windows...
All of my pi's are currently dedicated with other tasks but I'll see what I can do.
This might be the lock issue that was fixed a few days ago in Kodi master so you might want to try a very recent nightly build

One of the reasons why I like your plugin so much is that my iPhone's battery is not draining like when I would use airplay to stream it to Kodi.

Yes, that is exactly why Spotify introduced the Connect protocol.
Your spotify app will only "tell" the spotify playback device what to play instead of streaming the audio to the device itself.
Just enable Spotify Connect support in the add-on settings and after that you are able to select your Kodi device as a playback device in the Spotify app on your smartphone.

I have the same, but if you wait REALLY REALLY long it will play the next song... maybe 5 minutes later.

I wonder that i everytime when i wake up my pc from standby i get windows error message that spotify had stop working and sometimes two same messages. When i go into kodi (was in Standby too) spotify works.


RE: Spotify for Kodi - jaccki - 2017-07-23

Great work! The best spotify add-in ever Smile !

However, I am also experiencing 2:40 issue on my Ubuntu 17.04 x86, Kodi 17.3. My credentials are ok as I can see plugin entry in my spotify account.

It happens from time to time, today is my first day with this great plugin so not sure how rare the case is (already experienced this maybe 7 times today)


RE: Spotify for Kodi - PeteTheBeat - 2017-07-23

I also get the 2:40 error on the rpi3 at moment. very werid...

Thanks for that suggestion Marcel, I'm currently away from home but as soon as I get back will try it with a new build of Kodi and see how that goes, but you might beat me to it Wink

Cheers!


RE: Spotify for Kodi - marcelveldt - 2017-07-25

New version now on the repo, please test if that fixes the 2:40 issue

Can you disable the (experimental) Spotify Connect support in the addon settings to check if the error goes away ?


RE: Spotify for Kodi - jurialmunkey - 2017-07-26

@marcelveldt - seems with the latest version (39) I cannot access "Artists" or "My Most Played Artists" or "Playlists".
I can access Albums and I can play things fine.

I'm getting this error in the log:
Code:
22:06:43.909 T:140645433444096 WARNING: plugin.audio.spotify --> Exception in plugin_content ! --> global name 'label' is not defined

Also, going back to 1.1.37 works properly for Artists etc.

Same here on S905x and S912 devices both @ 1.1.39. Playlists empty in Spotify. Search works fine.

I can second this as well on my rpi3
