New Volumio Spotify Plugin Open Beta-Testing

Hello, I am encountering an issue with the Spotify plugin on 3.0.9. Specifically, the playback frequently stops unexpectedly after a few songs.

Additionally, I have noticed that Volumio becomes unresponsive when I try to resume playback after manually stopping a Spotify song and returning a few hours later. To continue playing, I usually have to restart Volumio.

Here my log of a short session in which it stopped after one or two songs.

Here´s my logfile:
All other things like internetradio and youtube work fine.
Pi4 with DAC, Spotify premium.
Problem: Can´t start playing song in spotify, browsing works fine.

Please remove the youtube plugin as your log is full with errors.

Deinstalled Youtube plugin, rebooted, test of spotify failed (browsing ok but doesn´t start playing a song)

I see in this and previous log shared by Michael, any suggestion?:

Hi all,
Still getting the refresh token timeout issue with the 3.0.9 version of the plugin.
Logs attached:


I have the following issue with the spotify plugin since 3.0.6:
Spotify connect only works on mobile devices. Neither Pc nor Laptop will connect.
This is kinda fixed if I connect first via mobile. After that I’m able to connect via Pc aswell (with the same account). Unfortunately Spotify behaves a bit weird then and does not show the currently played track inside a playlist.

Here the logs:

I just wanna say the plugin has been working amazingly well since the update. Thanks a lot for the great work!!


Also to say that, since last update of plugin, it´s working like a charm in my Volumio Primo.


Running RPI 4b Volumio 3 with Spotify plugin. Music always stops at the end of a song after 2-8 tracks been played. Sometime it’s possible to restart the song after a couple of minutes, sometimes a restart is required. Had this problem with Volumio 2 as well. Network through cable. Any ideas? Not very well versed in reading the log unfortunately.


Please run the same test on a cabled network cnnection and upgrade the Spotify plugin to the latest V3.0.8 As you still running an older version.

Where is the plugin SpotifyConnect coming from?

I have removed the Spotify Connect plug in. Only Spotify running. The same result, music halts after7-8 tracks. The iOS app shows the song, as normal but the progressbar and seconds are standing still. Thanks for your support, I appreciate it.

Please reflash your SD card and start over. Only install spotify plugin from the plugin store.

No clue what has been broken by installing unsupported plugins, I will not debug this.

I have issues when I try to stream through Spotify Connect. It starts to play whatever the last song was that I played through my local/NAS music library. And when I try to do it again, I get static mixed with the song that’s playing from the local library. Really weird.

I also only recently upgraded to the latest version of Volumio, coming from whatever version was available around Feb of last year and using the other Spotify Connect plugin initially (which is now uninstalled).

Already tried uninstalling Spotify pluging, and re-installed it, but I get the same results.

Any thoughts on how to debug this?

Still problem with music stopping a couple of tracks in. Flashed SD with fresh reinstall yesterday, latest Volumio, running Spotify, RPI4b. Network connected through cable (network working fine).


Any siggestion, can’t find anything in the logs besides/;/
AutoplayError: MercuryError

I am continuing to have issues with Spotify Connect after the latest update (3.09).

After a fresh reboot of my RPi 4 with the latest version of Volumio installed, Spotify Connect will work on whatever album or Playlist is originally selected. I can choose tracks in that specific album/playlist and have them work as intended. Whenever any track is selected outside of that original album/playlist, one second of the song plays and the track pauses. This is on ANY track, no matter using Spotify Connect on a computer or my mobile phone.

The only way to get it out of this loop is to reboot he pi.

I would really like to just be able to use Spotify Connect without any hiccups in the near future. Hope this helps
