Good news folks! Finally we managed to fix the Spotify plugin (and to revamp it a little…).
We implemented a cloud routine in Volumio which allows to execute OAUTH Authentication, and implemented this user flow in Volumio’s UI and Spotify plugin.
So, starting from version 2.0.0 (released today) no more tricks are required to access the library in full.
So, just install the plugin, follow the instructions and enjoy.
Thanks to Skirkwood, which lead the way to use Oauth and improved the plugin a lot, wihtout him this would not have been possible.
PS: To use Oauth functionality, Volumio version 2.671 is requred.
Hi All, Spotify shut off access to the “My Playlists” feature of (the deprecated) Libspotify last week. I’m experimenting to see if we can replace that feature with the new (and supported) Spotify Web API. Good news is it appears to work!
So to get this working you need to authenticate your Spotify account and get back a token that the Volumio can then use in API calls to access your personal playlists. Good news is the old Libspotify library appears to still work for audio playback, as there is no replacement yet.
So I could use some help testing the Proof of Concept I created. Here’s what you need to do:
