    Default Spotify & Squeezebox

    It seems that Spotify are changing the method of delivery of their service, and one of the casualties is Squeezebox support.
    As of 20th July Spotify will not play on Squeezeboxes.
    I have just cancelled my subscription - there's no point in paying for a service that won't integrate with my server.

    Once we've made sense of our world, we wanna go fuck up everybody else's because his or her truth doesn't match mine. But this is the problem. Truth is individual calculation. Which means because we all have different perspectives, there isn't one singular truth, is there?

    Just run a Chromecast audio into your DAC, keep it as a separate service...

    There are loads of ways around it, but that's missing the point.
    Spotify just decided to stop playing, and took their ball home with them.

    I'd suggest that they're in bed with Google, who'll be twisting their arm R.E. supporting alternative hardware platforms...

    I use Spotify on my Touch and Duet. I have found the 3rd party plugin 'spotty' in the repository mentioned in the thread Chris (Stratmangler) flagged up but it says 'not quite connect ready' next to it. I think I will wait and see what happens on the 20th before messing about, you never know they might change their mind.

    At the moment the resolution appears to be to run a local server, and disable all the Spotify stuff on it. Then enable the Spotty app. Note the spelings coz it's important.
    There should hopefully be some kind of trickle down eventually to mysq.

    Yes, that's why I'm going to wait, no point in removing all the Triode stuff and so on just yet.
