RE: Spotify for Kodi - sulko - 2017-10-12

Hi, Great addon, on Libreelec work perfect but I have too Kodi on Android TV. When i start playing the spotify plugin switch  to native Spotify client. I want to play music on Kodi because of Lyrics plugin. How to set Spotify plugin to play music on Kodi as default like on Libreelec ?

Is there a version that can be used that works?

Nope, at least in Windows 10: I tried 1.1.25, 1.1.30, 1.1.31, 1.1.42, 1.1.44 and 1.1.45 with no results

I use version 1.0.26 for weeks without any problemes


RE: Spotify for Kodi - foxstefano - 2017-10-21

On my pc 1.0.26 works... but it only plays 20 second of every song...


RE: Spotify for Kodi - Lyechee - 2017-10-22

Same problem here.
I get a popup "Spotty.exe stopped working" every 10 seconds.. I can also not connect to Spotify as I get the message "No credentials have been set or the login failed". I am sure at 100% that the pass I wrote are the good ones so I don't understand.

I tried the 1.1.45 version on Kodi 17.4 on Windows 10.

Thanks!

I used Kodi on xbian and installed this add-on but couldn't get it to work. Does this work only on librelec?

Hi All.

Kodi 17.4 LibreElec 8.1.10 Community via S905X 2gb/16gb. Spotify Addon 1.1.45

Something that might be for this thread thats started happening of late, and Im assuming that this relates to the spotify addon? No issues backing up and completing the backup in the past, probably a few weeks back at the most.

Im running the standard backup utility addon, and its getting stuck backing up addons/service.librespot/system.d . I assume that its not readable for some reason, or its in exclusive use? Eitherway the backup utility cannot complete. Tried network backup, local USB, both have the same effect.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Update: the service is nothing to do with this addon. Its the separate Librespot service that is installed, for some reason. I have uninstalled it, so will retest backup utility again. Sorry for the rubbish post!!!!

Has this add-on been abandoned? This is a great add-on and I would hate to see development stop.


RE: Spotify for Kodi - foxstefano - 2017-11-06

This was a great addon, but it seems to be no longer supporter, at least in Windows. I'm trying a workaround for controlling the official Spotify client with remote control, but it's not easy

Unfortunately this is the third Spotify addon for Kodi that's been abandoned... Hope some new dev will go on with this work in any way, or at least Spotify will make the official app for Windows compatible with remote...

Chill. Marcelveldt is just busy. Also what are you even talking about it being "abandoned"? A commit was made to this addon on github YESTERDAY!

You can't expect one guy who works on multiple kodi projects in his free time (for free) to be able to address every platform specific issue immediately when you demand it.

Also, the addon works great on libreelec - I use it everyday with no issues.
