[HOW-TO] Spotify Connect Web for Moode
No, unfortunately not.

Perhaps one of the worst downsides of this approach is that it will not survive well between updates and you could end up with half-working implementations. So, this is an obstacle in the way of normal upgrades and... to prevent the need of repeating all these steps... I'm still running 4.3 o even something earlier. Sad

Since I mostly listen just to Spotify and I am using MoOde more as an OS than a player, I'm mostly OK with this. But those looking to mostly use the MoOde player should probably not invest a lot of time in this and live with the included librespot solution. Sad

Please let me know if someone tries this on V5 and if there is something to update in the instructions.

Best regards,
Rafa.

Hi, yes I listen mainly to Spotify so I will stick with v4.4. Thanks again. If I get hold of a spare pi I will run through the steps to see if it works but don't want to mess with either of my 2 existing set up pi's.

Hallo,

ich habe heute MoOde auf 5.0 geupgrated und danach RafaPolites Schritte zum Spotify-Connect aufgespielt.
Leider ohne Erfolg. Es kam die Meldung:

main PID: 2264 (code=exited, status=203/EXEC)
spotify-connect-web.service: Unit entered failed state
spotify-connect-web.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'

Geht das überhaupt schon mit 5.0 oder nur bis 4.4 ?

Danke und Gruß

Reinhard

I understand your frustrations Rafa, librespot can be 'spotty' at times...no pun intended. Personally I've moved on from librespot and Raspotify, pretty happy with my solution. Like yourself I listen to Spotify a lot, so I needed something that worked 100% of the time on all my setups. Perhaps MoOde will change some things around for you guys. Good luck

Hallo,

today I set Rafas Spotify Connect to MoOde 5.0 and it works well with Py 3b and HifiBerry DAC+Pro. It works much better than on 4.3 (with 4.3 sometimes it was not possible to change to next song without going over queue and moode went after stopping Spotify not automaticaly back to for example radio).


The only little disadvantage is, that there are up to 3 to 5 seconds between two songs.

Many thanks to all involved and sorry for my bad english.

Greetings from Germany

I updated today to Moode 5.2, instructions still work, everything seems fine.

Reinhard, it's really weird you should be experiencing delay between songs, I get full gapless Playback from this. It is the only reason I have opted for this solution vs the librespot approach.

Thre is something not right if you are getting gaps between songs.

How are you including the songs? Are they from a playlist? A single album? Do you add to the queue one by one? The first two methods usually work perfectly. Working with the queue can yield some weird repetitions and odd navigation between songs. But still, never a gap between songs.

Could it be a connection issue? Are using wifi or Ethernet?
