Gapless playback from Spotify

Postby cjakes » Fri Mar 13 2020 16:38

I've been getting conflicting messages reading online, but at the core my question is this: With volumio setup on a raspberry pi, if I were to use spotify connect from my phone to play spotify on that device, will it play gapless or not?

When I do this with my google chromecast audio, it does not play gapless
When I do this with my BlueSound Node 2i it DOES play gapless (its beautiful)
When I play spotify locally on my phone or computer it does play gapless

I'm curious before I go to the effort of buying a raspberry pi, and flashing it with volumio, and hooking it up to an external dac, if it will play spotify gapless or not.

Gapless is here (https://github.com/librespot-org/librespot/issues/21) - expect a new release of the Spotify Connect plugin in a few days/weeks with the feature :-)
