Hi you guys!

I was wondering if someone is working on Spotify (openspotify or spotyxbmc)

It should be great if this would be fully integrated in XBMC or even an ad-on will do.:laugh:

Regards,

Harmen

Actually this is more of a XBMC request than something OpenELEC should take care of. Best would be to post on the XBMC forum about a Spotify addon.

True, an xbmc plugin would be the better option. But, maybe a Servify addon could be made for Openelec?

That wouldn't make much sense. OpenELEC is the serving platform for XBMC, an operating system XBMC can run on. It's very well done and writing an addon for Spotify would draw resources away from the actual project, which is to create and improve a fast (booting) and stable environment. The best place to ask for a spotify addon is really the XBMC forum as there are much more resources which could work on such things.

Hi ToBe and Luguber,

I think ToBe right! Will post the message at the XBMC board but maybe there is already an topic started about Spotify already so will investigate that first:-)

In the mean time.. If you find some interesting info over this subject please post it here.

Tnx!

From what i read nobody will bother with this until xbmc eden is released. Then binary add-ons will be allowed, and i guess that will allow people to create a working add-on. At least that's what I've read so far. So I'm just waiting for eden to be finished hehe.

In the mean time there's a plugin called mFlow which seems to work really well with OpenELEC.

Hi Gerbil,

I saw this option already and tested it but it will not work..
Depending on the region you live in.
I'm from Holland where it will not work for example.

Tnx!

I read on the XBMC forums that people have had success using the Addon with a VPN but I can't comment as it works out of the box for me, but then I'm in the UK.

I have created a libspotify package for openelec and have spotify running on a OpenElec i386 Generic build based on Eden. I guess this also works with x86_64 but have not tested. Due to legal license mismatch between spotify and gpl, a compiled build can not be released. If you want a source code patch so that you can compile an openelect release with spotify support, let me know and I will upload. All info on how-to compile is available here on this forum. My build is a direct port from spotyxbmc2 that was created by Akezeke, many thanks to him.

Note: It is mandatory to turn off the automatic update feature in openelect. Whenever I want to update to a newer version, I need to compile a new build.

Note: A valid, paid premium spotify account is needed, the free accounts does not work.

Hi Tompen,

In this case it becomes time to subscribe to the payed version... A working Spotify on XBMC was always the minimum demand to take it.

Can you please upload the source so I may try it?
Maybe you can post me (PM) the compiled version? So weird that Spotify limits itself BTW.

Tnx a lot for developing and posting!

Regards,

Harmen
