Amazing, Can’t wait to try it out!
Thanks for your hard work…

Gave it a try today. Works like a charm. UI is very snappy. Spotify plugin works. Many thanks for your work. Beer is on its way!

I found something, which might be an issue. I was playing a track (girl from ipanema) from the media server. While the song was playing, I selected an album from spotify. While the first song of that album was playing, I selected a track from the mediaserver. The song from spotify kept playing, but the player line at the bottom was suddenly showing “girl from ipanema” again and i got a red error box saying something about alsa not having permission. When the track from spotify stopped, volumio started playing the previously neglected song.

That seems to be a Volumio core issue, nothing related to the Rock64 port.
